Piper Slayton, Middleswarth potato chip fan!

Pictured here is 2 year old Piper Slayton enjoying a snack in a big chair with the largest size bag of potato chips that Middleswarth produces – the 3 pounder. Her chip of choice today is kettle cooked. Piper's family produces potatoes for manufacturing. She could be eating some of her very own family's potatoes! Piper's dad, Shane, says the whole family loves the chips.

Happy Christmas Morning!

This is Catey Fye, she seems to enjoy napping next to open bags of Middleswarth potato chips and doesn't appear to have a flavor preference, but she does (it is reported that Sour Cream and Onion are her favorite). She was born August 19, 2011. The first photo was taken a few weeks after she was born and she was literally smaller than a Weekender bag. Above she is shown in her car seat 32 months later with an open bag of her favorite Sour Cream and Onion chips (that was my favorite as a child too...but now it is Kettle BBQ...they weren't invented yet when I was a wee one).

Operation Chip Drop

Operation Chip Drop was a success! We deployed an Army Special Forces (SF) unit to Bagram Air Base. I handed the Middleswarth morale snacks off to one of the troopers who is from Hershey, PA. He told me he'd be able to get them to some troops out at an outer Forward Operating Base (FOB). I gave him my e-mail address and asked for some photos as the chips make their way out to the troops. Keep these folks in your prayers. They are training Afghani soldiers...many of whom have recently turned their rifles on their trainers. On behalf of the troops, mahalo nui loa for your very thoughtful gift...the PA troops will love this taste of home out in the Stan.

They have such mature pallets! they just enjoy chewing on the corner of the bag? No. It has to be the chips.

Let's start off by saying that my whole family LOVES birch beer and Middleswarth chips...ANY flavor. We have family down south and out west and what they want for special occasions is your snacks because NOTHING compares! The whole family enjoys whatever I bring home made by you!!! We even are training our son Cameron to be a proud sponsor of Middleswarth Bar-b-q chips!

Market Predictor

Does this Middleswarth Sour Cream and Onion potato chip predict stability in the market for years to come? Oddly, this potato chip has a square base with a graph type ridge and happens to match up with years of market / stock research. It was found in Sunbury, PA on 11/10/15 and is now in the PA Snacks museum. Ironically, this chip was found by the owner of PA Snacks and we assure you that no bite was taken out of the market. There were witnesses present.

Holy Chip!

A very interesting potato chip was found in a 99 cent bag of Middleswarth potato chips bearing the UPC code of 74931 11005. Judy found this wondrous chip and emailed us the following photo.


As you can see, there is a perfect cross in the middle of the chip. Judy saved the chip and assured us that it is in a very safe place right now. The bag that housed the chip is shown below.

This fan of Middleswarth chips loves bar-b-q flavor the best. She found it ironic that she found a heart in her bag today! Well, Valentine's day is only a month down the road! Love is in the air, and apparently in the bag.

Wow! Susan was pleased to find this bar-b-q chip during her 50th birthday party celebration. This special potato chip brought a huge smile to her face since it had a perfect heart in the center. Susan has the chip stored in a container to share with other chip fans.

"Thanks for the LOVE!"

The ever rare heart chip made it's way to our facility. The bad news...I accidentally crushed it under a pile of paperwork on my it is a broken heart. We usually place these rare finds in our chip museum...but not this time. It was a heart-breaking experience. We will always remember the chip in it's pure unbroken form.



Middleswarth Chip Thief

April 2010


I wanted to share with you a funny story that happened to my brother in Florida.  I sent him a big supply of his favorite BBQ and Jalapeno chips to enjoy.  Because of his job, he travels a lot so several bags of chips were in his car.  He went out to get into his car only to find the window smashed out.  He quickly assessed the situation and discovered they did not take any money or electronic equipment.  They did however, relieve him of all his chips.  When he called to tell me the story he was heart sick.  He said all the items were replaceable, but the chips were priceless.  I promised to mail more, but I thought you should be on the lookout for anyone from Miami FL ordering chips as you probably have a new customer/thief.


I hope you have a good chuckle.  Although it was a costly venture, I pictured the whole scenario in my mind and can't help but to laugh.


Great Product

I just wanted to send an email to tell you how much my family, my friends, and myself love your chips both kettle cooked and regular. I always have them waiting for my cousins when they get home from a tour in Afghanistan for a year they always request to have them waiting. I have 3 cousins that are in the active military so we buy a lot of your product for them and their friends. So thank you and you make a really good product, Thank you.



Middleswarth Chips in Afghanistan

I'm from Mifflinburg, PA and have served in the US Air Force for over 16 years.  I'm currently deployed to Kabul, Afghanistan. I'm writing today to let you know that a box of mini-bag Middleswarth chips (sour cream & onion, BBQ, plain) somehow made its way to Afghanistan. Growing up in

Mifflinburg, my family like many others in the area, grew up on your chips. I've lived away from home for many years and find it a food that I very much miss. When I visit my family, one of the first places I go is to the Mifflinburg Sub Shop for a ham & cheese cosmo and accompany it

with a bag of Middleswarth sour cream & onion chips!  --there's just no place like home...nor the flavors of home!


So, I'm writing to say Thank You! I don't know who the box was sent to, but it was shared & some of the chips made it to me. You just don't know how that lifted my day.  Thanks so much!


Funny Story!

I've been a big fan of your chips for as long as I can remember! Every time we would go home to visit my grandparents in Mill Hall, we would ALWAYS come back with bags or cartons. Now mind you, they live 4 hours away. Both are no longer living and I do not get back as often as I should! We just recently moved from Hagerstown MD to Waynesboro PA. Literally a 15 minute move. Can you imagine the look on my face when I saw your chips at Martin's Grocery store? I about fell over!!! I took pics and sent them to the family!!! Oh my goodness! All this time they were only 15 minutes away from me! The cashier thought I was nuts when I told her how excited I was! Not only are they the best chips around, but they always remind me of my grandma and growing up in central PA!

Pennsylvania Snacks, Nothing Compares!

I was born and raised in Hazleton, Pennsylvania and when I was 17, I moved South. People laugh at my accent, think it is funny when I put lemon in my tea, do not know what soda is, hat Pepsi, sell other brands of chocolate that is not Hershey and most of all...have no idea what Middleswarth chips are! I am so alone without my favorite chips :(


The good news is, you can order your favorite PA Snacks anytime you like at!

I just wanted to write to let you know how much I love your Middleswarth bar-b-q chips. They have been my absolute favorite since I was a child. Whenever I travel out of the area visiting friends, I bring them a care package including items that are local to myself. Your chips always make it into the bag! Thanks for making such a tasty product, and not changing it after all these years.


These are Literally the Best Chips I Ever Tasted!

Hello, just wanted to shoot you an email. I'm from Harrisburg, PA where the Middleswarth chips are a staple at every meal! I'm currently stationed here at Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan. I had my wife ship me 3 big bags of the Kettle Cooked Barbeque chips to my location. I put them out for my soldiers who are from Mississippi, Philly, Maine, Florida, and Kansas. The exact words that came out of every one of their mouths were, "WOW, THESE ARE LITERALLY THE BEST CHIPS I EVER TASTED!!!". All I said in response was, "TOLD YOU!". My family is shipping more and I might just make a bigger order through your website. But again, thank you!


Light and Perfect!
