Pressed and formed potato "chips". Not really chips but formed from some sort of potato mush. They were packaged in stacks in tubular cans.

The cans were more full those days, up to the top, now they are about 2" below the top of the can. We used to eat them and take the can and top outside, replace the top, and step on the can and see how far we could shoot the top!

Once I ate an entire can of these chips at once a decade ago. It was cheese flavored. After that, I threw up on the carpet. It was gross. I still eat them, but I learned not to eat the whole can at once...THE HARD WAY.

Pringles Potato Chips is 40 years old this year. Still the same concept: Not-as-greasy chips in a tube. Only the logos (man's head) were modified.

Mr. Pringles is said to be buried with his ashes in one of the cans.

I remember the early ads for these. Two woman, one held a bag of chips, the other held a can. They both emptied the contents into bowls and the point was to show that the amount of chips in the can was about equivalent to what was in the bag. Of course, the woman with the bag was shocked by what she saw!
