History of the Potato Chip
Fast-Forward a Century
PYREX Seizes the Moment
The first sets from Corning in the late 1950s included the Hot ‘N’ Cold Chip and Dip Set (known as Turquoise “Eyes”) which combined 401/403 mixing bowls, Balloons in 1958 and Golden Scroll in 1959, both of which combined 441/444 cinderella bowls and the Turquoise Chip ‘N’ Dip Hostess Set in 1959.
In the 1960s, PYREX sets included Golden Grapes in 1960, Early American and Town & Country in 1963, Ivy in 1964, Verdé in 1967 and Americana Fall Colors in 1968.
The 1980s saw the release of the Speckled Lines Chip and Dip set which used a wooden disk rather than a metal bracket to hold the dip bowl. This set combined a 404 mixing bowl with a small 10 oz. "berry bowl" borrowed from the dinnerware product line.
