hey, I remember them, but it was more like the 60's not the 80's. I only saw them in a store once and I still remember them. Lever also made Majorette brand regular chips when I was a kid.

Lever Potato Chips were made between the 50's & 60's at Geneva Street and Carleton Streets.

I LOVED!!!!!!! Majorette Potato Chips. Since I was a child in the 60's, this wonderful flavour has never been replicated. I think Majorette came first and then it changed to L'il Abner. I remember being dissappointed, so there must have been a slight flavour difference that even a youthful palate could tell the difference. Majorette?????? why did you change????? where are you now???? I bought my little bags, for 5 cents I believe, at TUZ's gas station in Port Colborne. I'm salivating as I remember that taste.

Majorette Potato Chips were made at the factory in St. Catharines. The place is long gone.

I'd die to be able to taste Majorette chips when they were made back in the late '50s &'60's again. Nothing ever came close to that taste.

Without doubt, the best tasting potato chip ever. I just opened a bag of chips that aren't too bad, and my mind went to Little Abner and remembering the flavor. Be great to find someone who knows the process, and start the company again.

Yes. I remember L'il Abner potato chips in Ontario in the late 1950s, early 60s. They definitely had a unique flavour. Glad I found this page. My friends probably think I'm nuts, remembering things like this, that nobody else has ever heard about.

I remember them from the late 50's. I think they used to come with a small 'sachet' of salt in the bag

Found little on this product, but 1968 was when Lil Abner chips appeared on the way out in Canada. Lil Abner started around 1940 as a comic strip. By 1944, Columbia Pictures filmed a few animated shorts. The creator, Al Capp, died in 1959. A Broadway musical play and motion picture came to be in the mid 1950s. By the late 1960s, Americans and Canadians began to tire of the "southern hick" stereotypes Lil Abner represented with lazy, buffoonish characters, plus scantily clad Daisy May. Until 1996, Lil Abner was shunned by the Gen X crowd. Then, a rewritten play (loaded with political correctness) was adapted and performed around the country.

Norman Lever was my 2nd Cousin and he made the Finest Chips Ever Produced! His Salt and Vinegar and other Flavours were the FIRST....he sold out to GRANNY GOOSE in the late 60's and they CHANGED THE NAME AND RUINED THE PRODUCT!
