  • Better Than Homemade

    Who put the Minute in Minute Rice?¹ What, exactly, is Spam?² And why do Pringles come in a tennis ball can?³

    Discover the answers to all these questions and more in Better Than Homemade, a freewheeling illustrated history of the packaged foods industry. From Green Giant and Hamburger Helper to Jiffy Pop and Jell-O, syndicated columnist Carolyn Wyman reveals the fascinating origins of your favorite “food” products-along with never-before-published advertisements, innovative packaging (cheese in a can!?), and hilarious “unauthorized uses.”
