chips aren't in our budget.... so who cares... honestly one chip is as good as another and in these times better to skip the chips and get real food.
UNLESS of course you have a pregnant wife... BUY the chips or be dead tomorrow.=)

Troyer Farms has the BEST potato chips on earth! We like them better than kettle-cooked, or any of the other brands -- they're SO good! When my son was small and we would come to visit from out-of-state, one of the things he ALWAYS wanted to take back home was some bags of Troyer Farms chips. Don't know how they cook 'em to get that ultra-crunchiness and flavor, but they are first rate. Hope if the brand has been sold, they keep the same recipe because it's perfect.

With my actually working for Troyer Farm in Waterford-I can honestly tell you that you people are not aware of the Troyer Family and the business. This Family backs their employees and field workers. I was working the field during harvest season and my children were sick and Mrs Troyer went and bought all the medications and hired a babysitter to care for my children so I could work. Troyer"s is not just about the "Chip Plant". It is about the generation of the family and the Legacy they provided to the Community and the workers. Did any of you know that Troyers sold their potato's to Snyder and Wise Chip Factory that provided their chips? Troyers will set up walks for the factory and tours and give every chip they make as well as ect to their visitors (bags full per person) just to allow people to see the process of the product. So before you blast and rotten comments about Troyer's Farm Potato Factory and their chips-you had better get your facts straight and think that just maybe the potato chips you are eating from another name brand are actual potato's that was grown and shipped from Troyers Farm in Waterford.

That's really interesting, Peggy. Sounds like the Troyers are decent people, and we think their chips are the BEST. When my son was about 10, we came up to PA for a visit from out-of-state and he got a very sweet, cuddly white lop-eared rabbit to take back home -- he named the rabbit "Troyer" after the chips. LOL!
They won't be moving the Troyer Farms operation, will they?

My favor chip was Gibbles...I think that was what it called. It tasted like they were fried in bacon fat or some other excellent flavor inducing oil.

Becky, you can take a tour. I did when I was a Boy Scout and still remember it fondly.

They are the best. Fried in lard. Pork fat.

TRUE!! Lard gives them that nice crispness and flavor! Nibble with Gibbles has been around for about 30 years * and if I was going to have a chip those are good ones.
Rather not eat the ones that have weird trans fat in them and make you in hurry up bathroom mode!

Did you know that restaurants used to use beef fat for deep frying everything including french fries? They tasted great but the government made the industry switch to vegtable shortening because of saturated fats. Now that same government says the vegtable shortening is no good because of trans fats. Ah government, how can we live without it?
