John Karolefski, author of the blog Grocery Stories at:
has written a book about grocery shopping. He had requested a quote from me about about chips -- their place in snack history, their popularity, etc.
I had provided him with a quote that I will disclose once his book is published.
Here is that quote!
"Potato chips are more American than apple pie. Compare the shelf space allotted to potato chips and apple pie in your local grocery store"
My interview with Chris Costello named "On Cue" is tentatively scheduled for release in February. I will keep you posted.

The deadline for the August issue would be mid-July.
Let me know if you'd be interested. I checked out your web site and instantly thought, "This is too perfect!"
Enjoy the opening theme to the Abbott and Costello Show

The Toga Chip Guy Is On The Air!
I have been interviewed about the history of the potato chip by a California based radio station, Yesterday USA Radio Networks, at 10:30pm New York time on Saturday, September 14th.
Established Circa 1936
Cain's Marcelle Potato Chip Co., Inc. operated in Bowling Green from 1936 until 1977. Company founder Emerson Cain is credited with coining the term “marcelled” to describe their unique type of thick, wavy-cut potato chips, now a popular style out of northwest Ohio. Cain also patented the automatic salting machine in 1953, further improving the production of snack foods.
