When the nearest convenience store is 25 miles away, you learn to do things for yourself. That’s why Dakota Style began making their own potato chips over thirty years ago.
Dakota Style Potato Chips come from own grown potatoes, they are then Kettle Cooked, one batch at a time. Every chip is seasoned by hand.
Dakota Style describe their Chips as 'Industrial Strength', this is what they mean, "Unlike your average paper-thin, delicate-doily, oh-please-be-gentle-with-me potato chips, Dakota Style potato chips are sliced extra thick. Then we open kettle cook them in cottonseed oil to toughen 'em up. By the time we're through, you could shingle your roof with these son-of-a-guns.
"As you can imagine, a strong, sturdy chip like this has to have a big, bold taste - one that says, "Oh, so this is what a potato chip is supposed to taste like...I had no idea."
"Try any one of these Dakota Style flavors and find out for yourself."

Fire at the Kettle Chip Facility
Around 1:30 am on February 21, 2016, the Dakota Style Chip Production facility was destroyed by a fire. There were no injuries & no one was working at the time of the fire.
However, due to this loss, we regret that we are unable to provide our Dakota Style Kettle Cooked Potato Chips & Dakota Style Kettle Shake, at this time.
We are currently working with our insurance company to assess the damage to the building & are also discussing options on how to move forward with chip production.
The Dakota Style Sunflower Seeds & Sunflower Kernels portion of the business was not affected by the fire. The Dakota Style Chip factory is located 7 miles away from our seed & kernel facility, so production at that facility will continue as usual.
