Uncle Phaedrus, do you happen to know the recipe for the Caesar Dressing 
that the Golden Corral Restaurants make? 



Hi Maryann,

Sorry, I had no success locating this.


State Line Potato Chips

Hi Uncle Phaed,

I've enjoyed your site for more years than I care to think about. 
Thanks for all of the great info through the last decade.

When I was growing up in central Massachusetts back when the three 
Kennedy brothers were still alive, we were able to buy a local brand 
of potato chips.  State Line Potato Chips were produced in a facility 
on Route 20 in Wilbraham, Mass.  Once in a great while, I have been able 
to buy them at a chain of New England discount stores, Ocean State Job Lot, 
but their inventory is subject to the vicissitudes of the closeout market.

Consequently, I haven't been able to locate a reliable source for 
State Line chips.  Efforts to find local outlets on the internet 
have left me stymied, so I guess that makes me your latest supplicant.  

Any idea where I might be able to get a steady supply of State Line Potato 
Chips within a 25-mile radius of Worcester, Massachusetts?  I promise to 
dedicate my first "crunch" to you, Phaed.



Hello Ron,

Best I can tell, State Line went out of business in the U.S. and sold the "State Line" name and recipe to a Canadian Company.
I could not find the name of the Canadian Company who makes them now. I found that a few people said that the Canadian version is available in a few places in the U.S., mostly in Massachusetts. No luck in Worcester, however. The only place that I found actually named was:
"Fresh Acres" - 1941 Wilbraham Road Springfield, MA 01129.

I work for a NY based company and was doing some research on State Line Chips 
when I stumbled across the hungrybrowser website, which is very helpful. Although 
the post is almost a year old, I just thought that I would let you know that 
State Line is now a branch of Yum-Yum Chips who are centered in Montreal, Canada. 
They took over a couple of years ago to extend their distribution into the US without 
having to pay those nasty import/export fees that tend to increase every year. 
Just an FYI in case you get more people asking about them. Keep up the great website!

Molasses Cookies

Dear Phaedrus,

It's a German molasses cookie my friend remembers her grandmother baking. 
The key remembered fact is that she rolled the dough into balls then rolled 
them in egg whites before just placing them on the cookie sheets. 


Hi Judy,

Sorry, no luck with this.

At my elementary school, Adams Elementary in Ballard, Washington, 
we had the best cinnamon rolls served to us at lunch with chili. 
Yes - can you imagine the two served together?
I would love the recipe for the cinnamon rolls.

Thanks so much!
