We’re pretty sure it’s unanimous that 2020 has been a train wreck of a year. COVID-19, the ensuing pandemic, economic disruption, an election year – there’s been very little to celebrate. Well, we might have found something
Weston’s Organic Potato Chips!
What are those you ask?
Obviously, they’re potato chips – organic potato chips. And one of the reasons we’re excited about these chips is we’re providing the organic chipping potatoes that are fried up into these tasty snacks. They’re grown right here in the Klamath Basin, which, in our opinion, makes these potato chips extra delicious.
Weston’s Organic Potato Chips seems to be a regional brand only found on the West Coast. Though they may be a mostly Californian product, we were able to find them at our local Grocery Outlet in Klamath Falls. On a personal note, it’s pretty exciting to go to a grocery store and see potato chips with your family’s farm on them.
Even more exciting is when you know the “Weston” behind them.
If you haven’t guessed yet, the Weston printed on the big white bags is in reference to our very own Weston Walker. Jaap Langenberg, the brain behind the rose fingerling chips and Weston’s Organic Potato Chips, visited our farm a while back. During his visit, he was amused that Weston was so dedicated to growing and providing chipping potatoes he even named his dog Spud. With the image of a farmer and his dog in Jaap’s mind, a brand was born.
Now the big question – how do they taste?
We might be a tad biased. Regardless, these potato chips fry up nice and nearly white – just as a proper chipping potato should. Being thick-cut, wavy-style chips, they have a nice, crisp crunch. There are two flavors to choose from – Sea Salt and Sea Salt ‘N’ Vinegar. While you get the familiar flavor of sea salt and the pungent punch of salt and vinegar, what’s nice about these potato chips is you can actually taste the spud. The flavors don’t overwhelm the natural potato taste, which in a world of overly-salted snacks is a nice change. And again, we might be slightly biased so you need to find a bag and try them yourself!
We hope you’re able to find a bag of Weston’s Organic Potato Chips in a store near you. Since these are an organic product, if the white bag doesn’t stand out on the shelf of the snack section, you might have to go look for them in the natural foods aisles. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
