Thunder Crunch was a staple in the 90s, and we have one Yugoslavian immigrant to thank for introducing them to Canada.
Marcus Nalley moved to Tacoma Washington in the 1920s and started making chips in his kitchen at home while working at a local hotel.
He started a company called Nalley’s foods which became massive - at its height they made 1,300 different products.
In 1976 Nalley’s launched in Canada, and in the early 90s introduced Thunder Crunch, which they called “revolutionary”! And “the crunchiest chip you’ve ever eaten!”
They were the first brand of kettle cooked chips to be mass-marketed here, and by the end they came in 9 different flavours.
They stopped making Thunder Crunch in the early 2000s, but the memory of these chips lives on in these retro t-shirts, printed in East Van.
