There are a few memories from my earliest years: my first ride on Dad’s big tractor, Mom’s cooking, ice-cream on a stick and Old Dutch potato chips. The latter convenience/comfort foods were obtained whenever Dad drove the family into Winnipeg for shopping/visiting.

I was shocked and horrified to think that there could be salmonella in Old Dutch potato chips. How is that possible? They are sterilized in boiling oil and salt and vinegar are added. So how did salmonella get in? Oh! It’s not the salt and vinegar kind. It’s that new stuff with cheese and whatnot added… I’ve always stuck with the original. It’s the right way to do potato chips… Sadly, a newer generation does not share my fondness. At a recent party there were potato chips with a disgusting coating that was advertised as catsup but reminded me of blood on the ground beside our latest deer. It was red but certainly did not add anything good to the taste of the chips. I think TLW and others buy this stuff just to gross me out and to get me to reduce my consumption of chips… It’s a conspiracy, I tell you!
