Mikesell's Potato Chips - Family Owned!


Potato chips were invented in the mid 1800's in Saratogo, New York by George Crum. They became known as Saratogo Chips. Since then many more companies evolved in the making of potato chips.

One of them is Mikesell's Potato Chips which came about in 1910. This potato chip company holds dear to my heart since it is in my family. I learned about them in my younger days. I was grocery shopping and came around the corner of the isle to see my last name on a potato chip can. I was so surprised I called my Dad right away. He said yes it was a relative who owned and started this company. I thought it was pretty cool; kinda like being famous. I don't live in an area where I can just buy them but I get them every chance I can when I am visiting in the area's where they are sold at. Those areas are Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois They can be ordered online at there website as well which I have done.

The chips are very tasty and good. They are made in peanut oil. They have many flavors you can choose from. All are very good. I love them. They also carry pretzels, puff corn, curls and chip dip.
