105-year-old 'bacon woman' rides in Wienermobile

May 7, 2013 (RICHLAND SPRINGS, Texas)

"I love bacon, I could eat it for every meal -- and I do!" Pearl Cantrell said. Bacon is the secret to her long, happy life, she says. "I want other people to eat bacon, I tell them to. My kids all eat it."

Oscar Mayer heard her, and took a special interest in the feisty bacon-loving granny. Cantrell got to ride shot-bun in the Wienermobile through Richland Springs, Texas.

"I will never, ever forget it, as long as I live," Cantrell said.
