TASTE TESTING: Potato Chips from Pennsylvania

August 24, 2019


Before we left Pennsylvania, our friend ms Susan gave us some sample bags of the THREE TOP BRANDS of potato chips that are MADE IN PENNSYLVANIA… well my goodness, it looks like another TASTE TEST was in order to see which chip was deemed THE BEST CHIP OF PENNSYLVANIA, according to our parents. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


Mummy set out one chip from each bag so that Daddy could look at each one, but he had no idea which was which… then he slowly sampled a small bite from each chip. He took a second bite to make sure he got a good taste. He made his decision but didn’t tell Mummy. Then she tasted her chips. She obviously knew which ones were which but that part couldn’t be helped.


They gave a score of 3 to the number 1 choice, a score of 2 to the number 2 choice and a score of 1 to the number 3 choice.

Here were the results:


UTZ: 1st Place = 3 points

GIBBLE’S: 3rd Place = 1 point

MARTIN’S: 2nd Place = 2 points



UTZ: 3rd Place = 1 point

GIBBLE’S: 2nd Place = 2 points

MARTIN’S: 1st Place = 3 points



UTZ: 4 points

GIBBLE’S: 3 points

MARTIN’S: 5 points


THE MARTIN’S CHIPS WERE THE WINNER, according to this taste test. But MUMMY SAYS that UTZ is better and she bought some of their SWEET SOUTHERN HEAT BBQ CHIPS and said they were OUTSTANDING! But maybe you should buy all of them and do your own taste test! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


Don’t you just LOVE doing taste tests?

    I love doing taste tests. I recently did one with an ice cream stand here in Vermont that makes homemade ice cream from an all natural dairy . All were delicious but the winner for me was the Maine Blackbear, vanilla ice cream with fresh Maine blueberries and chunks of dark chocolate. Yum! Thanks Mille for the testing result! I personally love Utz.

    it’s REALLY fun to see that you did the potato chip taste challenge! Now I’ll share with you the challenge that was done and how they ranked the chips… ( I didn’t want to sway your decision ahead of time LOL ) their #1 chip in Pennsylvania was GIBBLES…… #2 chip was UTZ………. #3 chip was MARTIN’S! LOL to each their own I suppose…..but it is fun! Here’s the link to their taste test…. they had some other brands but I didn’t collect ALL the brands from Pennsylvania but I got the top 3……. https://www.pennlive.com/life/2019/07/ranking-pennsylvanias-potato-chip-brands-from-hartleys-to-middleswarth-and-utz.html

      WOW VERY INTERESTING!!!! Mummy had a toss up between Gibbles and Martins for the #2 and 3 spots… but gave Gibbles the #3 spot because it was just a little TOO SALTY for her taste. UTZ has a nice light flavor and was lighter on the salt so it got #1 for Mummy!

    Hi Millie
    So mommy and daddy had a chip tasting.
    I haven’t heard of the other chips. But I really like UTZ. I get them here all the. Time. I think mommy can get them at stores when you all get home.
    Have a wonderful day..
    Hugs and Kisses
    Oliver and mommy πŸ’‹πŸ₯°

    My favorite of the 3 is Martin’s I like the kettle cooked and I like when the chips curl/fold over. Utz is #2 for me and Gibble’s #3 only because of the more “lard” flavor to the chip. Martin’s and Utz are lighter chips. I like Utz regular BBQ chips. BUT Gibble’s makes THE VERY BEST CHEESE PUFFY’S!!! mmmmm
