Got to love the funny little American brand names that serve small product niches. With these brands, the product markets are small, and so is the competition.

Penley Wood Toothpicks, Maine in USA

toothpicks American

WEST PARIS, MAINE – There is something very American about toothpicks, and a great, American-made brand is Penley. Rather a shame that many brands sold today are made in China. After all, how difficult is it to make a toothpick, and can’t the production be automated enough? I find it shameful that Jarden, which owns […]

BLOSSOM, TEXAS – We hear from fans of the Peanut Rounder. It’s “soft and delicious” soft textured peanut candy made by Anderson Candy Company.

Swab, The Great American Wagon Company

May 5th, 2010 · No Comments

We tend to think that carriage brands that might have been around during, say, the time of Little House on the Prairie would be gone. Perhaps most are, but one wagon brand is still around.

Anchor-Hocking, Made in America

January 19th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Today’s New York Times talks glass, namely the glass that is going into the World Trade Center. It’s Chinese. We don’t need to get into the debate over free trade vs. protectionism, but we did notice something. And from two factories in the Ohio Valley, operating 24/7, the Anchor Hocking Company churns out baking dishes, […]
