German term or phrase: Zwillingsstück and Blockstück
These terms are used on food packaging, e.g. 'Bauchspeck, Blockstück 300g'. I have thought along the lines of 'twin pack' and 'single pack', or 'double piece' and 'single piece'. Are there more specific terms?

English translation:twin pack and unsliced
Explanation:
I think your twin pack must be right for Zwillingsstueck, but I wonder if Blockstueck refers more to the fact that it's sold unsliced in one piece? Surely Einzelstueck would have been used for single pack? If that is the case, then I think you could just say "Bacon, unsliced, 300g", especially if the twin pack comes after it in the text.
