Who remembers THESE potato chips from back in the day?

Growing up, my grandma was never without a fresh bag of these for me to open when I came over

1. Never heard of them. They must be regional.

2. Indeed, Western US ... damn near everything was regional when most of us here were kids :)

Interesting, Laura Scudder was the originator of sealed bag packaging for potato chips, to keep them fresh!

7. Brand still exists, though their natural peanut butter is the only thing I recall seeing on store

shelves in the past ... long while.

22. I loved their BBQ flavor chips.

I still have a mini Charles Chips can, and I recently saw big cans at World Market. I may have to get some for the sake of nostalgia.

37. $19.99 at World Market!

I may have to go get a can. World Market also has the best price on Walkerís shortbread cookies - a box of 20 of the little 2-to-a-pack shortbread fingers for $10.99. I first tasted Walkerís shortbread in 1974, in Edinburgh, and, IMO, it is the best brand. Iíve tried many others, and nothing compares.

The Vermont Country Store catalog is a hoot to look thru. Lots of familiar old products, and tons of stuff Iíve never heard of.

I used to love Lanz of Austria flannel nightgowns, and wore out my last one years ago - washed so many times you could practically see thru it. I was very excited to find them in the VCS catalog, and ordered one right away. Sad to say, the quality was no longer the same - the flannel was stiff and harsh, and the neckline was badly asymmetrical. The label was still Lanz of Austria, but now made in China. Back it went.

25. Yes! My best friend's family used

to have them delivered weekly, so I preferred to be at her house than her at mine. They later got the choc chip cookies too. And they had a case of Coke always. My parents didnít have junk/snack food or sodas in the house, so Iíd indulge at hers.

Many decades later I was in the small town where I grew up and visited my friendís mom, then in her 90ís. The house was exactly how it had been, with only the old Philco console TV replaced. She served me tea on pretty cups with saucers, put out little biscuits, and I said, ďI remember everything, even the same family photos on the piano. You used to keep cases of coke on the floor there in the pantry, and that was a serious allure to hanging out here.Ē

She got up, went to the pantry door, and said ďI still doĒ while opening it!

38. I worked with a woman who was addicted to them

Her favorite was the ketchup-flavored chips. They were pretty good, but I didn't like them nearly as much as she did.

16. They were the first ones (at least where I lived SF Bay Area) that made a 'natural' peanut butter

that was in all the grocery stores. The kind without stabilizers where the oil was at the top and that you had to stir. Also had no sugar, and they even had a salt-free version.

Naturally, all us kids hated natural peanut butter

28. Wise potato chips were popular in the northeast when I was a kid

The symbol in the ads for the chips included a blue owl.

A DUíer has a blue owl icon and I get triggered and crave Wise tater chips when I come by his posts.
