        • a) Houses****
        • b) Cars
        • c) Insurance
        • d) Boats

Among its many, many offerings were so-called "kit houses," or entire homes that were shipped on a train. You had to assemble the house yourself using the 75-page instruction book.

Though you can make kindling out of nearly anything, the flavored corn chips are particularly handy because they'll burn for a long time. In fact, most chips will serve as good fire starters because they're made of flammable hydrocarbons soaked in oil, according to an investigation by The Star. The more covered in powder-flavoring they are, the longer the fire will last!
