American Potato Chip can by Charles Chips. There are a few surface scratches and small spots on the lid as shown in the photographs. Inside the can is part of the original wrapping. This can easily be removed if not wanted.
Charles Chips is an American maker of snack foods, especially potato chips. It was known for home and office delivery of its products in distinctive tins.
They were known for their signature sales slogan, “Chippin’ it!”. The company was started in 1942 when Effie Musser sold her potato chips through a distributor, who put them in distinctive tins, and named them Charles Chips after Charles Street in Baltimore. Effie and her husband soon took over the business and by 1946, moved production to a professional kitchen. They started offering home delivery of their chips, and added pretzels and cookies.
In 1974, the business model of home delivery became more challenging. The company made a strategic move to develop retail packaging and market their products into grocery and convenience stores.
