One bacon-loving grandmother in Texas got a special visit from the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile.

But, she didn't just get to see the unusual vehicle in person, she also got to ride around in it!

Just a month ago, 105-year-old, Pearl Cantrell, let us all in on her little secret to a long, happy life.

"I want other people to eat bacon, I tell them to. My kids all eat it," said Cantrell

And lucky for her, the right people were listening.

Oscar Mayer took a special interest in the feisty bacon-loving granny.

Hitting the streets of her hometown of Richland Springs, Cantrell is riding "shot-bun" in the Wienermobile, waiving to several generations of people that she's seen grow up over the years.

After the ride, it was more like christmas, as she was gifted, what else? Bacon!

And Cantrell's family says she deserves every bite of it.

After the ride and gifts, it was time to get down to business.

With her stomach and heart full, Cantrell says this day marks a special memory on her lengthy timeline.

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

Oscar Mayer says it plans to send Cantrell even more bacon in the future as well.
