Potato Chip Factory

Today, we visited a local potato chip factory...the Route 11 Potato Chip Factory.  It was fascinating to watch the entire potato chip-making process, from whole potatoes being cut into slices to seasoned chips being put into bags.

Unfortunately, they did not allow photos to be taken of the process.  However, they did permit photos to be taken in their lobby.

say "chips"

Here is T, sitting in front of a huge Route 11 interstate sign which they found at the dump!

We bought some small bags of chips.  They offered several different flavors for sale.  Actually, we purchased three bags...and then added a fourth after sampling the pickles flavored chips.  Who would have thought pickles flavored chips would taste so good?!  lol.

They are open to the public Monday-Saturday from 9am-5pm.  They do not offer walk-through tours of the facility, but they do have an amazing fry-viewing experience.  They do not fry every day, but we happened to be there on a day when they were frying!

Did I mention that their chips taste outrageously delicious?!!  :P
