2013-05-11: All About Bacon!
A 105-year-old texas woman who worked a life of physical labor and mothered seven children revealed the secret to her longevity–bacon.
“I love bacon, I eat it everyday,” Pearl Cantrell told NBC affiliate KRBC when asked the secret to living so long. “I don’t feel as old as I am, that’s all I can say,” Cantrell added.
Cantrell, who lives in central Texas, and still dances, also told KRBC that her 105th birthday party was a three-day affair with more than 200 guests.
When Oscar Mayer found out about Cantrell’s love of bacon, it sent one of its iconic Wienermobiles to make a bacon delivery to Cantrell’s home. Watch the video of Cantrell riding around her texas town in the Wienermobile here.
