Truth or Myth? Is Betty White Older Than Sliced Bread?

Is America's sweetheart the best thing since sliced bread or the other way around?

By LaToya Monah

Claim: Betty White is older than sliced bread

It's the truth. America's sweetheart was born in 1922, just six years before the Chillicothe Baking Company sold the very first loaf of sliced bread on July 7, 1928. As great as sliced bread is, it has nothing on Betty White. In 2010, the USDA Forest Service made White an honorary forest ranger, and a 2011 poll revealed White to be the most popular and trusted celebrity among Americans. Everyone loves Betty!


Enjoy Betty so much, she puts a smile on my face every time I see and listen to her on 2014-10-30 11:08:47

I already think she is the energizer bunny. We should/could take a few pages from her book. on 2014-10-29 07:30:10
