It advertises, “A healthy food on the alkaline side”.  Well, not any more.  Not tuned in to huge amounts of pop culture, I am not sure if alkaline diets are of interest now or not.  There are web sites, of course.  And lists of alkaline vegetables and such.  Potatoes currently do not make the list, and potato chips??


This post is not about health; I know nothing about health.  This can was purchased (without the lid) for one dollar, there is my interest, along with the graphics of healthy people, the deco font used, and the simple idea that potato chips could be healthy.  This can makes me think of Biltmore, or Zelda Fitzgerald.

On my rusty can, the words “hydrogenated vegetable shortening” is barely readable.  Trans fats be damned!  This is healthy eating!

bettter new era can

Above is a can worth much more money than mine because of its good condition.  Looking at the design, the  silhouettes around the top and side bother me.  Their size is not common.  There is no universal perspective.  The spacing is not consistent.  The proportions on other parts of the can seem better.  The silhouette of the major figure on the can looks like my grandmother when young.

1-backIs not the comment on the back of this can in conflict with reality?  Specially constructed springs to deliver these chips?



If you take the time to go the links above, you can experience the fun of researching.  Be sure to read the comments.  Many worlds come together to extract knowledge.  And the lovely lady is identified!

  1. thanks for reading, elaine. about a half hour after publishing, and looking at the post as published, i realized they were links, and changed the narrative. now wondering why the change was not implemented! stay safe in all that crazy thundering snow!

  2. magnificent publish, very informative. I ponder why the opposite specialists of
    this sector do not understand this. You should
    proceed your writing. I am sure, you have
    a huge readers’ base already!
