Hot Slut Of The Day!

Betcha Bacon!

Since I was a child of the 80s and 90s, many of this site’s HSOTDs are from that time. But every now and again, a reader who grew up in the 70s (“People who grew up in the 70s are still alive?!” – Gen Zers) drops a Hot Slut into my inbox that makes me yell at my parents for not making me 10 years earlier. That brings me to this delicious foolery that General Mills shit up in the 1970s.

Everybody loves bacon. Everybody loves snacks. So General Mills put the two together in the 1970s. They set up a piece of bacon and a corn chip on a romantic date, and nine months later, Betcha Bacon was born. Actually, that’s not true since Betcha Bacon wasn’t made with real bacon. It was a corn chip injected with some fake bacon flavoring.

I’m not sure when Betcha Bacon was born exactly, and when it died, but it didn’t make it out of the 70s. General Mills was into it enough to give it a commercial, though. Here’s one starring what looks like the stand-ins for The Shining movie, who spit out tongue twisters about Betcha Bacon.

The 70s were ahead of the 80s. Because in the 80s, if I wanted a bacon “snack,” I had to beg my mom to buy me Bac-Os for my “salad” and then down the whole bottle in my bedroom on the down low. In the 70s, they had actual bacon-flavored chips that they could just eat out in the open without judgement. Those were really the days.
