Back in those heady 1970s, everything was about convenience. Just look at Reddi-Whip. Why spend the time to whip your own cream when you could just shake a can and deposit it directly into your face? The bold individuals behind the now-ubiquitous can of whipped cream had an arguably just-as-brilliant idea a couple years later — why not do the same thing, but for BACON? If they could figure out a way to speed the process of making bacon, they knew that’d have a winner on their hands, so they decided to invent a process that allowed you to make bacon in your toaster. All you had to do was pop a packet of the foil-wrapped processed meat into your toaster, wait a few minutes, and enjoy piping hot Reddi-Bacon. What could possibly go wrong? A lot of things, apparently: An absorbent pad in the packet intended to soak up the grease tended to leak inside the toaster, creating an obvious fire hazard as well as a greasy toaster. The product was pulled before being released nationally.
