Songbird salutes the 70's

Charles Chips.
Remember them?
Delivered to your home in big yellow cans, they were crispy, crunchy, scrumptious potato chips.
The brown can held pretzels.
Home delivery  is a thing of the past. Times changed, and eventually this company just faded away.
They're ba-ack.
Saw the familiar cans in Shoprite a few weeks ago.  Seems that the family that started the business bought back the name and re-launched the brand using the original recipe.
I bought a 2 ounce bag in 7-11 today.  It's a thick-cut chip, less salty and more potato flavor than most supermarket chips.
Sigh.   Contented sigh.
