Who makes the best potato chips in York County, Martin’s or Utz? Or someone else?
York, Pa.’s, Martin’s Potato Chips are randomly sampled salt and moisture content, as seen in this York Daily Record/Sunday News file photo from 2004. Also of interest: York County, Pa. made big, heavy things – and was immensely proud of it and Chipmaking of the potato kind has deep roots in York County and York’s Central Market sells steak … and sizzle.
Universal York blogger June Lloyd keeps chipping away, er, profiling potato chipmakers around York County, Pa.
She just did the El-Ge/Eagle/Frito-Lay plant, west of York.
But here’s the thing.
The topic of potato chips often sparks a fun debate that diverts attention from the
weightier issues facing York County and the world.
The discussion about who makes the best chips usually is framed this way:
Are you a Martin’s fan or an Utz fan?
If you’re a York countian, that usually covers it.
Or do you think there’s a better chip than either of those two?
