Share your snack food stories!

UPDATE: This research is now completed. Thanks to all for sharing your stories! My book on the history of Canadian snack foods will be available from University of Manitoba Press in August-September 2017.

As part of the research for a book on the history of Canadian snack foods, my research assistants and I are conducting interviews with a variety of interesting people… a food scientist who has done useful work on potato chip browning; a former candy maker at Nutty Club; and a man the Globe and Mail refers to as Dr. Freeze.

But we want to interview many, many more people with a variety of connections to Canadian snack foods.

Have you ever worked at Old Dutch Foods, or Hawkins Cheezies, or Scott-Bathgate, or some other Canadian snack food manufacturer?

Are you a member of a Canadian producer or consumer snack food association?

Are you a food blogger who writes about Canadian snack foods?

Or did you participate in Canadian game shows affiliated with snack food manufacturing?

If so, we want to interview you! Post a comment or send me an email if you’re interested or would like more information. We’d love to hear your stories!
