Titans of Taste: Supermarket Sensations

A quick fix is often the next best thing to a home cooked meal, dessert or snack. Nowhere else in American society do we see this fulfillment of need played out daily, but in the neighborhood grocery store. We often call these stores supermarkets because they stock an array of products designed to make our lives easier. From instant soup and pasta, to desserts and popcorn, there's not an inch of supermarket shelf or freezer space that doesn't offer something to be whipped up in a jiffy. Who are the innovators behind the dynasties of Campbell's Soup, Orville Redenbacher Popping Corn and pasta papa, Chef Boyardee? Discover where the concepts for these supermarket sensations were born and see where they might be in the future.
