Oct. 26, 2016: A history of Hawkins Cheezies !

“Hawkins Cheezies: A Canadian Snack Food History”

On October 26, 2016, from 12:10-12:50 pm at the Millennium Library’s Carol Shields Auditorium, the U of W’s Janis Thiessen will talk about the history of this uniquely Canadian product. It is part of the Skywalk Concert and Lectures Series.

Thiessen was a guest on my radio show back in 2014 talking about her research into all sorts of tasty Canadian snack foods. You can listen to the podcast here: https://archive.org/details/WED20140817405

Just listened to the pod from a couple years back. So cool! I love random, nerdy research like this. Wish I could make it to the Cheezies lecture... if you go, will you share the highlights? They are one of my favourite indulgences (though the last time I bought a package and ate most of it, I made the mistake of looking at the nutritionals. Yikes! Trans fats nightmare!).
