Although we have some good local ones in MI, I have to go with the cape cod russet and dark russets.

Hey Rebel...thanks for the info about the Middlesworth chips. I was looking at the pasnacks.com website and was just about to order then I read your quote on the forum. I guess I'll have my mom pack up some and ship them to me here in California.

Mr. G's, I believe was a brand of Nibble with Gibble's (kosher), Gibbles has been gone for a while now.

My dad and sister worked for Nibble with Gibble's and sadly the company went under. I am sure the Cheese Puffys are still being made by the new owners (the cousin purchase the place).. Martins Potato Rolls (Chambersburg, PA).

My dad was the fleet manager and my sister worked in the network department.

I'd have to say that growing up in Massachusetts, Cape Cod and Wachusetts are my absolute favorites! Both are very different from each other...Cape Cod are the kettle cooked variety while the Wachusett's are non-greasy and excellent for dipping (won't break) with a very potato like taste! I'm not sure what happened to state line either...but I do remember them being very similar to Wachusett's! Could anyone tell me where to find dill pickle flavored potato chips in the Mass/CT area?

Although I did not purchase these chips around here in the Worcester, MA area wher I live, my brother did around the Hartford, Ct area. Those chips are very prevalent around there. I don't know whatever happened to the parent company of Wilbraham but someone is apparently still making them and yes, they are the world's greatest chips!


I just joined this forum and saw the post about State Line chips. I grew up in Wilbraham and loved these chips. Living around the country I missed them until one of my sons went to grad school in Springfield and would bring them to me. That was about 15 yrs ago and I've not had them since. I understand the main factory is closed and the building is up for sale. If someone is still making these, I'd love to know about it.

Try Blair's Death Rain. Very spicy and nice texture. I could sit in front of a football game and eat about 20 pounds of the Buffalo Wing flavored. I concur about Poore Brothers, an excellent chip.

Foxyfishy - Utz makes a pretty good dill pickle chip. They're carrying them at Big Y and Stop and Shop, now, for two places I know of. I recommend their salt and black pepper variety, myself.

I keep wanting to try the Wachusett ketchup chips, as they're a favorite on Taqutos.net, but the brand rarely seems to get out of central Mass.

This is what I grew up with, so to me, this is how a chip should taste.

They also have a garlic onion that I'm crazy about.
other variety includes:
lightly salted
unsalted
bbq
honey bbq
salt and vinegar (my wife's favorite)
Of course the product line includes all kinds of snacks http://www.wisesnacks.com/products_other_snacks_all.html

In the New York /Pa area, by far our favorite is HERRS. We've toured the factory many times, and the care that gpes into their chips is tops with us. Give them a try if you can find them!

I was very satisfied with pasnacks.com service. They delivered my favorite Middleswarth potato chips quickly and safely. I ordered and a few days later I was munching on a treat that I would have had to travel to Pennsylvania to enjoy. This is great! If you ask me, UPS or the postal service got a little too rough with your package Rebel. My favorite flavor/variety is Kettle Cooked BBQ. The best ever! The chips are crunchy and flavorful (plus there is always sugary flavoring to enjoy at the bottom of the bag...don't miss out on that!) Yum :)

Ah, I may have posted here on this thread, but here goes. When I was a child in CT, this would be about 1962, we had a Charles Chips man who drove around in a van, and delivered every week. Like the milkman. He tried to push other products, like the CC version of Cheetos, etc, but my Mom would never buy anything but the chips. He had a basket, again like the milkman, with all this other stuff in there. But of course what we all recall is that big can of chips, and the CC man would pick up the empty ones! I guess they washed them and reused 'em. Like milk bottles, or cloth diapers, or long neck beer bottles. I remember once tossing a cherry bomb in a CC can, putting the lid on, and running away. The thing just split apart, and was pretty much flat sheet metal afterwards.
In LA, my favorite through the '80s was Laura Scudder's Sour Cream & Chive Wavy chips. But they are no more. Those were just perfect. Today, I have no particular favorite, but I do like that Jalapeno item they dispense at Subway.

I just got finished watching an episode on salty treats on a show called "American Eats" on the History Channel. It bought back a lot of memories, since I live on the opposite coast from where I was born.

Interesting about all the posts on PA potato chips. This show went over the history of the potato chip, which started in a restaurant in Saratoga Springs in NY, but blossomed in PA because the type of potato grown there were rounder with thinner skins than the russet, thus easier for potato chip making!

Right now I am absolutely addicted to Poore Brother's Jalepeno chips. Actually panic if I don't have a bag near me at work!!

I have a question, though. One of the bags of chips they showed were pickle potato chips. I love this flavor. First had them in Toronto, Canada in 1989. They were Ruffles, but apparently only sold in Canada. A couple of years ago they appeared briefly in the supermarket, made by Lays, but I haven't been able to find any recently. Any suggestions on the best brand to try and how to get them?

I've had excellent service every time I have ordered Middleswarth Chips from PA Snacks. My favorite Middlesworth chips arrive at my front door within about a week after placing my order and I can sit down and enjoy a great snackfood item without having to travel to Pennsylvania for what I consider are the best chips in the world! You can find these chips at www.pasnacks.com or www.middlesarthchips.com. I highly recommend PA Snacks (I have been a customer for since 2004 and have had nothing but excellent service).

I have been ordering for years from PA Snacks and have had nothing but the best service. I highly recommend visiting if you are a fan of Pennsylvania snack foods! Besides offering Middleswarth (Middlesworth) Chips, they even have Shoo-Fly pie, Tastykakes, and birch beer available. Love them all!

I used to get Charles Chips in CT in the early 90's, but not since. (In bags, not cans. Hadn't seen cans in years). The regular salted came in the familiar brown speckled bags, the unsalted in white. Most stores never heard of them.
I also miss Connecticut Wachussetts, a family favorite also long gone. Bachman's kettle cooked are pretty good.

Utz and Wise don't do anything for me
I think Lay's killed off much of its competition.

When I was growing up in the Rockford IL area in the '60s, '70s, and '80s Mrs. Fisher's was *the* potato chip (the company logo featured 2 children dancing with a potato). In the '70s a brand called Mr. G's showed up and the rumor was that it was started by former Fisher's employees; the chips did have a similar flavor but I think Fisher's were cut just a tad thicker. I'm pretty sure both brands are still around but I'm not sure if they're still independents.

Years ago my uncle told me that when he was a boy he could go to the Fisher's plant in Rockford and for pocket change buy a big brown paper bag of the lumps, burned bits, and other "undesireables" that were deemed unsuitable for retail sale. Of course, they tasted the best...

Brad O.
I'm not sure if it has something to do with having a Mrs. in the name, but I tried these Mrs. Fischer chips for the first time yesterday and it brought back memories of Mrs. Drenks and Mrs. Howes, two chip companies of my youth. I feel these are the best chips I've had in at least 30 years. We got them at our local Woodmans and I plan on returning to the store (and soon) to pick more up. Its a unique taste that once was common to Milwaukee but one that has disappeared, sort of like calling them The Bonomo's Turkish Taffy of chips.
They still are made in Rockford and are still owned by a woman! Good stuff.I'm editing this to add the cool company logo I came across.

Lot's of you mentioned Wise products. I too grew up with them...they were always darker and more "Deep Gold" than other chips. Lays are too bland for me. But now,I've grown accustomed to Herrs, as I said earlier...and if I can't get them, it's the other Pennsylvania(chip and pretzel capital of the world, Utz!!

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 "nostalga" 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.

Does any one know how to get some Jays red hots, I have only seen them in Detroit. Also I am addicted to Zapps, I order them and they are shipped in days, so many flavors to choose from. The crawtater and the tomato/tabasco are soooo good.

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 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:

http://www.mrsmikes.com/

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.

I still love my Cincy's own GRIPPOS
There BBQ chips are Wonderfully spicy and your tongue and throat get hotter the deeper in the bag you go and those DARK RED (&%_&% at the bottom of the bag!!!!!!

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.
