Crunchilicious Chips from New York.

Located in Gainesville, New York the Marquart Family uses the finest, locally grown potatoes to make some of the healthiest potatoe chips I’ve ever had. I’m usually not a big fan of potatoe chips because most of the time they are saturated with tons of artificial colors and preservatives. Not only does this make the commercial potatoe chips extremely unhealthy for you, but also gives them a flat, bland taste. The New York chips produced by the Marquart Family are completely different, and I noticed the quality of the taste as soon as I tried them. With a thick, wavy pattern and crunchilicious taste, these potatoe chips truly exceeded all my expectations.

New York Chips are all natural

What I got was a potatoe chip that is naturally cooked, with skins and all in natural oils. I’m always very skeptical of the claims that companies make pertaining to how natural their potatoe chips are, especially the ones on the front of the bags. The only way to know is to carefully look on the back of the potatoe chips bag and read the ingredient list. To my surprise the ingredient list on the New York potatoe chips was the shortest I’ve ever read, and if it got any shorter, it would only contain potatoes. I’ve always had an interest in exercise and healthy eating, but sometimes like to have something crunchy and tasty while working on blog posts or watching a televising program, on rare occasions. Ever since I was a kid I’ve had a weakness for crunchy snacks, but now like to keep my weight down and maintain my health. The reason why I check the nutrition facts is that, the shorter the list the more natural and healthier the snack. New York potatoe chips definitely passed my strict nutrition facts test. Only problem, is that most healthy snacks taste worst then saw dust.

New York Chips taste amazing

As soon as I got home, the anticipation of how great they taste got the best of me. I bought two flavors, the sea salt, and bar-b-que. With much scrutiny and willingness to judge very hard, what I got was a very fresh, thick, and tasty set of potatoe chips. Unlike most potatoe chips, the New York chips aren’t thin like tissue paper. They are cut very thick,  and have a wavy pattern to them. This locks in a lot of the flavors and gives them a crunch that can be heard loudly from across the room. Immediately, all my taste fears were eliminated, and even though both flavors taste great, bar-b-que is still my favorite.
