A nostalgic glimpse at the glass counter jars, tins, boxes, and display racks which held American's favorite cookies, candies, and snack foods in America's country stores. These items are chronicled and illustrated in over 390 color photographs. Histories of over 75 companies which used them, covering over 100 year, from Adams Gum and Dixie Biscuit to Planter's Peanuts and Wise Potato Chips are provided along with detailed listings of the variations among their distribution jars and lids over the decades. Mergers among the snack food giants are recorded and mention is made of over 200 companies that profoundly affected every type of snack food from chewing gum to cookies. Major marketing and distribution trends and the dates associated with them are also revealed. Values for the counter jars and their variations are provided.
