Hot Fries! A post about junk food…

In 1971 Goodmark Foods Inc. created the popular “Hot Fries” snack food. They licensed the comic strip character Andy Capp created by Reg Smythe (1917-1998).

The year Reg Smythe died (1998) Goodmark Foods was acquired by ConAgra Foods that make and distribute the “Fries” to this day.

I’ve often wondered about how and why Andy Capp was representing this particular snack food? Do they help him with his hangovers?! At any rate, having Andy Capp sure makes this product a bit more interesting! Not to mention a very special style of “bad for you” GOOD!
