In 1984, Marty McFly met Jennifer Parker at Hill Valley's 7-Eleven and was going to ask her on a date when Douglas J. Needles interrupted them.

The clerk told Needles to either buy something or leave the store, whereupon Needles picked up a bag of Snacky Chips and threw it into the clerk's face, telling him to hold it for him while he browsed the store.

After Needles had finished harassing Marty and Jennifer, he picked up the bag of chips and threw it in the clerk's face once again, saying that he had changed his mind about buying the chips due to the cholesterol content.

According to a news story by Matthew Urbanos on the front page of the October 22, 2015 edition of USA Today,[1] which told of a controversial new study by scientists at the International Center for Alternative Scientific Theory (ICAST), cholesterol was a possible cure for cancer.
