Better Made Chips should be called Best Made Chips!

I was on my home from work, and thinking about what to make for dinner. I decided on a burger, and instantly thought 'I need chips'! I stopped at a gas station, looked at the chip selection and my mouth started to water the second I saw that lovely yellow and red bag of chips...Better Made!!!

I know they are Michigan company, but why do I love the flavor so much? I think the reason is pretty simple. Better Made shares their secret...

"Better Made Potato Chips uses all natural resources and are untouched by human hands from the time the potatoes leave the farm until you bring the crunchy chips to your mouth."

The company Better Made has been in the chip business for over 85 years, and are still in the same place they started, Detroit! Another yummy fact about the chip is that the company uses potatoes grown in Michigan for about 10 months out of the year. Real, food made here in our great state.

The founders of Better Made started out to just make great potato chips, but my how their brain child has grown! You can find almost any crunchy snake that you crave, check out the list of products they make, that I located at Wikipedia.com...

Better Made goes beyond making delicious potato chips, they also have different varieties of popcorn,  cheese puffs, cheese curls, tortilla chips, pretzels, along with what the company calls "miscellaneous' items. My personal favorite of all the goodies they make are listed under miscellaneous, they are called 'Rainbow Chips'. I know if you have not tried them, you are scratching your head saying...'what are Rainbow chips'? www.thrillist.com describes them best...

"Rainbow Chips were actually burnt chips. The dark chips that had a sweet, burnt taste -- a result of the caramelizing of the sugars that occurs during frying -- were removed and rejected from most packages. Better Made collected the rejected chips and packaged them as Rainbows, but supply was limited and they were unable to meet rising demand, so now they're intentionally producing a darker chip rather than collecting their misfits for sale."
