My wife loved those things. They used to be delivered to our house on a regular basis. Not being a chips fan I don't know how often they came.

we had the old cans at my parents house for years and years. The yellow chip can is long gone - rusted away, but they still have the brown pretzel can at their house, usually containing the twin bags of Terrell's Chips (a local Syracuse company).

when we were kids, one of my brothers put the pretzel can over another brother's head, who then, accidentally, took a header down the main staircase with said can covering his head. Since he didn't break his neck during the long fall, we figure the can must have saved his head from some bruises. The can is still a bit warped from that episode, almost 35 years ago.

When I was a kid, we always had the Charles Chips pretzel and potato chip cans in our home. I did a quick search and found their website where you can order goodies:
