I remember the Charles Chips guy... ahh the childhood memories. Hey, they used to deliver milk in glass jars too! But oh boy the Lawson's chip dip was good. I think they tinkered with the formula - it tastes a little weak these days...Brings back memories of the days of Salem's around Water Street (or was it Bowery?) and Flaherty's (on Grant). Went through about a thousand 5-cent bags of the BBQ variety as a kid.
And remember when Charles Chips delivered by truck to your door with those huge cans? New Era also comes to mind... Buckeye down in Bolivar...
Along with OK, each had their distinctive flavor.
Back then, we thought the national brand Lay's tasted awful by comparison. Now, we settle for Sun Chips with our Lawson's Dip (still sold at Circle K).
(in NM on business, thought I'd check in on the doings in Akron)
