They came out with the winner of The Ultimate Potato Chip Taste Test. The winner was Kettle Krinkle . That's fine and dandy, but I'm sure someone forgot to put the OH-SO GREAT Sterzings Potato Chips into the taste contest. They'd have won hands down.
Sterzings Potato Chips were a HUGE treat in our household growing up. They were better known as the "Iowa Potato Chips". We only got them when Cousin Jim came to visit, or any other relatives from Iowa came to visit. They would usually load up their trunk with them and deliver to all our relatives on "this side of the river". River - meaning the Mighty Mississippi.
What makes these chips so great? They are light, and crunchy, and they have a completely different flavor to them. Also, some of them have these little pockets of grease that are to die for! Literally, we'd die for those! Fights would break out, kids would jump over the table even, all for a chip with a grease pocket in it. I even sold one for a buck to my sister. My oldest sister is the die-hardest Iowa Potato Chip grease pocket chip monger on the planet. Still to this day we fight over those! Too funny.
You can order these fantastic chips online here. I think I'm going to have to order a pack of 4 bags. Shipping is already included in the cost. They are so worth it!!
