Potato Chips

Old Dutch Snacks have been a family favorite for as long as I can remember. In fact, old Dutch Snacks have been on many, if not all upper mid-west dinner tables for generations. When I was growing up, Old Dutch Potato chips were one of only a handful of brands available. Way back in the olden days (the  60’s), there weren’t many brands of snacks to choose from.

From the beginning they’ve made each and every one of the many snacks with the utmost care and the highest quality ingredients.”
