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?
