LAY'S DRUGSTORE 5c GO B-TWEENS JAR W/ORIG LID

This is a vintage Lay's 5 cent Go B-Tweens sandwich Jar featuring Oscar the Happy Potato and its original lid. This old 1950s Lay's 5c glass jar and lid is in great condition with no chips or cracks. I remember these back in the day. The Lays logo is a bright red and the glass is clear. It measures 9 inches in diameter and 13 ¾ inches tall with the lid on. It is hard to find these jars in this condition. This is a beauty that I don't mind keeping and will display proudly in my kitchen until the right buyer comes along.

In 1932, Herman W. Lay started selling Gardner brand products from his 1928 Model A Ford in Nashville , Tennessee . By 1936 Lay employed a workforce of 25 and began manufacturing products himself, including peanut butter cracker sandwiches. In 1938 Lay purchased the Gardner 's brand name. He changed the name of the company to H.W. Lay & Company, Inc., with headquarters in Atlanta . In 1944 the company began marketing potato chips under the Lay's name. That same year, H.W. Lay became one of the first snack food concerns to advertise on television, with a campaign featuring the debut of Oscar, the Happy Potato, the company's first spokesperson. The following year, H.W. Lay gained an exclusive franchise from the Frito Company to manufacture and distribute Fritos corn chips in the Southeast. In September 1961 H.W. Lay and the Frito Company merged to form Frito-Lay, Inc. In June 1965 Frito-Lay merged with Pepsi-Cola Company to form PepsiCo, Inc.

I WOULD RATHER NOT SELL AT ALL THEN HAVE A DIMINISHED SEARCH STANDING FOR SOMETHING YOU WERE AWARE OF BEFORE YOU PURCHASED.
