10 Fantastic Vintage Bacon Advertisements

Posted By: on February 18, 2010

Who doesn’t love bacon, even pigs love bacon and so do vegetarians. There really is nothing to not like about bacon with it’s crispy, salty, fatty deliciousness. It can be added to almost anything to enhance the flavor of an otherwise bland dish.

The popularity of bacon recently seems to have skyrocketed a bit but I’ve discovered more than a few vintage advertisements that prove it’s been holding it’s own for quite some time now. It’s hard to say which one is my favorite…the toaster worthy Reddi-Bacon, the promise from Swift’s Premium Bacon that it’s the “food for the new generation” or the statement by Swift’s that “Authorities recommend bacon for children.”

    I equally hate auto-play video ads.

    Bacons are surely delicious. Love seeing those vintage bacon ads but I am more interested in tasting those bacons. Yum!

    Just thought i would comment and say neat design. Just bought the R-230KK Microwave. It browns meat just like an ordinary oven.
