Here in NE Tennessee we had a brand called Terry's which I really enjoyed. They were made in Bristol, Tn or Va not sure which. Unfortunately they went under several years ago. One of our local supermarket chains called Food City has recently started to revive some of the "nostalgia" brands and Terry's was one of them. They brought out the original packaging and flavors but I'm not sure if it's the same recipe. At least it doesn't taste like the original to me. To be fair though my tastes have changed so much it may just be me.


According to DBF's dad, who works for FC (corporate, not in one of the stores), it's not the same recipe. I don't know if that's "hear-say" in his workplace or actual fact, though.

Speaking of their "revived" brands, have you tried the Kay's ice cream? That's some good stuff... not cheap, but good!

jfitz,
Thank you, thank you! -- You unearthed my old post (one of my earliest!)... what a great memory!
Ever since the near-explosion of restaurants that make their own potato chips, I haven't needed to order a Sterzing's fix... but I think I will, as soon as possible, just to share 'em with other folks who won't have ever had them.
My currently-favorite eatery, Allen's Hamburgers, makes their own chips (they come pre-cut). I ask for 'em extra-well-done and put mustard on 'em... brown if I'm in the mood for it; yellow if I'm not. I don't order them up often, though, because (as always, it seems) I'm trying to lose weight!
Lo these many years later, I stand by my assessment of Sterzing's from Burlington, Iowa as being some of the best potato chips in America. Alas, however, I have yet to try Middleswarth's, although those can't be much better than Grandma Utz's!
I was unaware that Gibble's had gone out of business. Sad. Too many people eating chain-chips that are the same everywhere... how boring. Yawwwn. (That not-the-same-everywhere-ness is one reason I like livermush, but THAT'S another story... and for another thread!)

I love Poore Brothers Habanero chips. Haven't had them in a very long time but still remember how delicious they were.

I finished off a bag of Grandma Utz's yesterday. They're some of the best chips I've ever eaten. Fried in LARD!!! I live a few miles from the Utz plants in Hanover, PA, and you can smell them for several blocks or, if the wind is right, even farther.

Martin's Kettle Cooked and their new Sea Style chips (with sea salt) are another good local brand.

Utz Black Pepper chips are AWESOME!

I also love dill pickle chips and lemon chips, but they are difficult to find in NJ. I found dill in Buffalo and lemon in Cali.

It's interesting how our taste buds vary. When I grew up, Sterzing's was the most popular chip around. I couldn't stand them. I recently went back to Illinois and tried them again, and yep, I still can't stand them...lol

Art & Mary's potato chips (formerly just Art's) are a local favorite in the Kansas and Missouri area. Similar to Utz chips. I used to really love their jalepeno flavor.

My old home town favorite, and still produced today:

Went to their garage factory as a kid in the 60's, been sold since, and still the original artwork on the bag, and they sell (or used to) in bulk you could take your own container to their factory, I used a 5 gallon bucket, and they would charge by the pound. One of the last local foods available from my old hometown!

Loved Art's "Hot Tater Chips" back in the 80's when they were made 100% with peanut oil...now, not so much. I'm into Zapp's Cajun Crawtators more than any other chip.

I had some Sterzing's shipped to me for my birthday last week.  They just got here today.  I almost felt like crying, I've missed them so much.  Best chips ever.

Love Sterzing's.  3 ingredients.  Potatoes, salt, oil.  Fry.  But they do it soooOOOooo well.

I've emailed Sterzing to see who the nearest retailer might be, although the 2-hour drive to Dubuque isn't all that bad.  I feel obliged to at least try Sterzing's chips before I automatically pronounce them inferior to Mrs. Fisher's.

Hey SC....I just ate the last bag of Dakota Style "Industrial Strength" chips that I brought back from Clark, SD. (pop 700). They have 12 employees and are the best chips I've ever had. They will even send you some, or I'll bring you back a few bags when I go on my road trip next June.

Just discovered Golden Flake "The South's Original Potato Chip". They're incredible.

Toured Golden Flake's factory when I was in culinary school and they gave each of us a big, brown paper bag filled with hot, greasy chips fresh from the fryer when we departed. Best? Almost as good as Grippos.
