UPDATE: This research is now completed, and I am no longer conducting interviews. Thanks to all for sharing your stories! My book, Snacks: A Canadian Food History, is available from University of Manitoba Press.
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.
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!
