Alright so lets face it we all love to snack and I have to admit that my weakness is chips! Any kind of chip I don’t care I love them all so when I came across Ballreich’s Potato Chips I knew I had to try them they just looked so delish!
Ballreich’s Potato chips first started in 1920 in Tiffin, Ohio when Fred Ballreich and his wife, Ethel, opened their homemade potato chip operation in a dirt floor garage, using a copper kettle heated with wood scraps. It was an all day process that produced only 14 pounds of potato chips. Ballreich's chose to call their potato chips "marcelled", which means "wavy", taken from the popular ladies' wavy hairstyle of the 1920's. They have come a long way since 1920 but you can guarantee that the quality and taste of the chips have remained the same!
I receive a few sample packages of chips to try out they included: regular, bar-b-q, smokey sweet mesquite, sour cream & onion, salt & vinegar, pretzels and some of their new baked crisps!
I really enjoyed all the flavors we were sent but my favorite was the Smokey Sweet Mesquite and the Sour Cream & Onion my husband seemed to favor the regular and the salt & vinegar and my son clamed all the pretzels! All the chips have a super fresh taste and I will defiantly be purchasing more of these chips in the future! I think these would make a great addition to a family BBQ or any kind of get together!
