A huge freaking box of potato chips!

My roommate woke me up today, dragging in a large package addressed to me. I wasn’t quite sure what the package might be, but it was addressed from Pennsylvania, where my family lives. I opened the box, and laughed out loud when I discovered that it was full of potato chips.

Middleswarth Bar-B-Q flavored Old Fashioned Ket-L Chips to be exact. Five “Weekender” sized bags, and six 5.5 oz. bags. Plus a bottle of peanut sauce (I live on tofu, stir-fry veggies and ramen coated in peanut sauce).

As anyone from central PA will attest, Middleswarth makes the best barbeque chips in the world. Everytime I go home to visit, I inhale whole bags of these things. I just hope I don’t eat them all in a week.

This was a birthday present, by the way. I remember joking to my mom that she should ship me boxes of these chips. I’ve been noticing lately that my mom has a tendency to take things literally. Thanks Mom! You know you’re going to make me fat! :-P
For those of you who have never been to the Keystone State, Pennsylvania is the potato chip capitol of the world. Many local and regional brands such as Wise, Snyder’s, Utz, Gibble’s, Good’s, Herr’s, Martin’s and others are manufactured here. In fact, I’d wager that Pennsylvania has a better choice of local brands than just about anyplace else.

Middleswarth chips are very popular in central Pennsylvania, and are only available there. Why they haven’t expanded their market throughout the northeast is beyond me. For those of you who’d like to try Middleswarth chips, this website sells 3 lb. boxes for $5.95 + S&H.
