It sounds like a good idea. Hot bacon, ready in minutes, from your toaster. Unfortunately this was also the decade that brought you Richard Nixon. So things didn’t quite work out that well. Reddi-Bacon was the idea of the makers of Reddi-Whip. They promised hot crispy bacon without the trouble of “soiling a frying pan or the oven.”
Not quite space age, the packaging would leak fat from its foil cooking packet, which I imagine could make for some exciting moments in the kitchen. The bacon was pre-cooked, so we’re not talking bacon inferno. But smoke and ruined toasters laid waste from leaky packaging were certainly a possibility. Toaster bacon pulled from test markets before being unleashed on a peace loving public.
