Since I am still with the family in PA, I thought I'd give you a little tidbit about Central Pennsylvania - where I was born and raised. It is the "snack food capital of the world" - Pennsylvania leads all other states in the manufacture of chips and pretzels. No wonder we're all a bunch of fat asses!
Some of the chips/pretzel brands from my youth, and the towns where they are made:
- Gibble's - Chambersburg
- Martin's - Thomasville
- Middleswarth - Middleburg
- Utz - Hanover
- Herr's - Nottingham
- Snyder's - Hanover
As you can see, a trip to the local supermarket allows you a LARGE selection to choose from:
But my all-time favorite is Kay & Rays Potato Chips, originally made right down the road from us in Newville, but now manufactured in Chambersburg by the Gibble's people. Yummy!
