The Enterprises TV Show Colors Made in America’s Best Products

Crayola Crayons - Made in Easton, PA 

There is no shortage for clothing, toys and other mainstream items with Made in China or Made in India or Mexico labels in them. It is challenging to find the Made in America label in many things. The Enterprises TV show highlights four colorful mainstays in most U.S. homes.

Do you know any children? Grab their box of Crayola Crayons. These iconic coloring sticks have been made in America since they were introduced 1903 in Easton, Pennsylvania. The company now makes them 400 different colors, a plethora of specialties such as marbleizing crayons, sidewalk chalk and an abundance of items one can choose to color like thermoses. Grab the box that colors your world and be inspired. Who says Crayons are just for kids?

Speaking of color, Post-It Notes are made in America too. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, with lines and without, and are valuable resources for anyone who needs a note stuck someplace where it won’t be forgotten. Every Post-It note bought in the U.S. is made in the U.S. at the 3M in Cynthiana, Kentucky. The Enterprises TV show wants you to feel good about sticking those notes on the boss’ desk to remind him/her about a raise.

The best products for measuring food, storing and baking it are Corning’s Pyrex glass baking and measuring dishes. Made from glass in Charleroi, Pennsylvania, these oven-proof and heat-proof dishes and cups stand the test of the highest temperatures and do not crack or break. We are sure there is at least one Pyrex bakeware piece in your kitchen. Did we mention they come with colorful airtight plastic lids?

Almost every chef and baker, amateur and professional, we know wants or has a KitchenAid mixer. These more than study kitchen essentials are made in Greenville, Ohio and have been since 1941.  They’re sold in a variety of colors and styles to fit the décor or mood of the kitchen (or main chef and baker). You can make anything in them. Tough to break too.
