They're making chips again...but bankruptcy proceedings for Mister Bee are still making their way through the courts.

The company shut down its production last fall, after filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Recently, a federal bankruptcy court in Charleston granted Mister Bee the right to lease its name, trademark and manufacturing equipment.

The option to buy that property has been given to James Richard Barton consulting.

Barton has a six-month exclusive option to purchase Mister Bee property and 90 days to purchase its assets.

Mister Bee chips returned to store shelves late last week, after a nearly six-month absence.

Sure , eat the "old " recipe Mister Bee potato chips made with partially hydrogenated fats and we will have more people with heart problems and clogged arteries. This transfat will clog arteries faster than saturated fat. Trying to keep my family healthy we don't buy products made with transfats.

What has happened to the only potato chip that I have ever loved?! I do try to eat healthy foods, and consider Mr. Bee (only Mr. Bee!) potato chips a special treat. Imagine my surprise when I opened a bag of my beloved Mr. Bee chips and found that they taste nothing like the chips I have eaten all of my life. I call for a boycott of these imposters and implore Mr. Bee to restore the taste we have all known and loved. I know that the Mr. Bee company has had serious negative response, and frankly I am surprised at Mr. Klein's seeming lack of regard for the preferences of his customers. I for one do not like the new chips, and I won't be buying them. Ever.
Amen!

Witschey's should have a small display of them, too. Don't expect them to be the Mr.Bee chips of old because they no longer get the best potatoes. I've tried them a few times over the past year and they just don't measure up to the competition. The chips are smaller and instead of just being crispy, they're also tough. Sorry, Mr.Bee - you're a pleasant memory but today's product just isn't worth the money when better tasting and better selling chips are available.
