Store-Bought Chili– A Short History
Willie Gebhardt, initially of New Braunfels, Texas and also later on of San Antonio, created the initial canned chili in 1908. I can remember my Grandmother making use of that brand name of chili powder when I was a child.
An additional prominent chili brand name is Wolf Brand chili, which was established by breeder Lyman Davis near Corsicana, Texas, in 1885. Wolf Brand tinned chili was a fave of Will Rogers, that constantly took along an instance of it when amusing and also taking a trip in chili-less areas of the globe.
Both the Gebhardt as well as Wolf brand names are currently had by ConAgra Foods, Inc. In the UK, one of the most preferred brand name of tinned chili is marketed by Stagg, a department of Hormel foods.
One more technique of advertising and marketing business chili in the days prior to extensive house fridges was “block chili”, in the manufacturing of which almost all of the wetness was ejected to leave a strong material approximately the shapes and size of a half-brick.
