Snacks By The Lb. At 6626 South Main St.

Recommended Posts

I was browsing the newspaper The Rice Thresher dated March 19, 1985 and came across a business advertisement for Snacks By The Lb. located at 6626 South Main Street.

I believe Snacks By The Lb. started in Pennsylvania in the 1980s.  According to the flyer the TMC location was the first franchise in Texas.

Does anyone recall this place? In terms of history, 1985 wasn't that long ago.  Maybe someone on HAIF went here back in the day? This is my type of store! I'm pretty sure I'd pick sweet  & salty snacks over candy any day! Chips, pretzels, popcorn, trail mix, nuts, breakfast bars, etc.  Good stuff!
