According to the US Patent Office, on Wednesday, September 27, 1961, a U.S. federal trademark registration was filed for PESOS
by Frito-Lay North America, Inc.
, PLANO, TX 75024. The USPTO PESOS trademark serial number was 72128732. The current federal status of this trademark filing is CANCELLED - SECTION 8. The description provided to the USPTO for PESOS is Snack Foods-Namely, Corn Chips. I have no recollection of these snacks, although I do remember the King Size Fritos of the later 60's and early 70's, which were squarer and thinner than the regular Frito. Unlike the regular Fritos, which came in the familiar orange bag, the King Size Fritos we had came in a blue can. King Size Fritos have been revived in recent years as a limited-time item, although I don't think they are currently offered.
Nice to see the picture of the Chuc Wagun. We would visit our Texas cousins in the summer and would go to the CW for a Wheel Burger. I remember you paid by dropping your money in a box at the order window and your change would drop out. That always impressed me as a kid. The smaller burger was called a Hub and the hot dog was called a Spoke. Good times.
