State Line Potato Chips Tue, 12/21/04 1:44 PM (permalink)
Would anyone tell me how to get in touch with the maker of State Line Potato Chips, John M. Boyd Co. I can't find it. Thanks...

    Do they still make them? We had a factory in town and it was closed many years ago.

      Sorry, but I think that State Line Potato Chips are no longer produced.

        Hi,
        I Just did a "Google" on State Line Chips and it rerturned quite a few hits. Seems they are still being made and are now a "Product of Canada"

          Stateline, based in Wilbraham, Mass, went out of biz a few years ago, and the trademark was sold. I understand that the trademark has been sold several times since. If you look around this site, you will find a few interesting chip threads, and most mention Stateline. I still miss them myself.

                This string reminds me of Tri-Sum chips -- also in Massachusetts.

                I just looked them up and came across this semi-related link that brought back memories too!

                  State Line (wherever they're located now) is still in business and th chips are as delicious as they were when I was a kid. I just had a friend back in Western Massachusetts send me a couple of bags to sunny Reno, and they were awesome! I'm asking for more as soon as I send this.

                    They are now made by Yum-Yum Chips in Montreal, Canada. State line is the same product in different packaging due to the extremely high cost of exporting the chip from Canada.
