About this collection

Did you know Doritos were born in a Disneyland dumpster? Or that the Slinky was the happy accident of a naval engineer?

At Marketplace, we’re always curious about the brains behind the products that have become synonymous with American life, so we’re starting a new series called “Brought to you by…”

As part of our Innovators project, we’ll track down the minds and muses behind the stuff you use every day and tell those stories on the radio and our website.

We’re starting with stuff that Americans buy up and bring out every summer, from sunscreen to pool noodles to popsicles.
