There’s Something Unusual About This Potato Chip Bag
The Utz brand of snacks has been around a very long time. Its website's timeline begins in the early 1920s, so we're talking nearly 100 years.
I had no idea about the Utz longevity until I saw a Mad Men episode, some years back, in which they were working on a campaign for Utz Potato Chips.
That's when I Googled Utz and learned more about them.
Utz Quality Foods, Inc. actually is a parent company for four brands, but it's the Utz brand, itself, that interests me the most...in particular, its logo.
This current logo began its life in 1987. It's a picture of a rosy-cheeked girl reaching into a bag of potato chips.
The other day, I noticed something about the bag when I looked over at it from about 3 feet.
From that distance, it looks like that little girl is holding a knife that's dripping with blood.
The old logo provides a much plainer picture of what the girl is doing.
And, by the way, I'm not the first person who's noticed this. Although, I may be the second, based on a Google search.
Anyway, enjoy your Utz Potato Chips...and...try to ignore what I've said.
