Barrel O' Fun's goal is to offer you the best in the Barrel O’ Fun Snack Foods brand and in many of our new and growing families of brands.
Barrel O' Fun was part of the KLN Family Brands group, and was a family-owned business located in Perham, Minnesota. KLN started in 1964 with Tuffy's Pet Foods, and has continued to expand its brands and products.
After receiving regular offers for its impressive range of snacks, KLN Family Brands eventually sold Barrel O’ Fun’s line-up, which includes Rachel’s Kettle Chips, Vic’s Popcorn, Beer Chips and Pretzels, Salveo, SkinnyGirl, Natural Planet chips and its branded snacks for NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. and comedian Larry the Cable Guy, in early 2016.
In a deal worth $125 million, the Ohio-based Shearer’s Foods, LLC also acquired production plants in Perham, Phoenix and Waterford, Pennsylvania.
Barrel O' Fun Original Potato Chips
These chips featured a fluffy potato taste that lacked a little in necessary salt, but were able-bodied companions to a variety of foodstuffs, and the perfect Minnesota Twins watching snack, which is how they were being marketed when I tested.
Barrel O' Fun Cheddar & Sour Cream Ripple
There was a solid cheese aroma when I opened the bag and although sour cream is a regular accompaniment to the cheese flavouring with potato chips, it is rarely noticeable. As with these, it was used more as a way of tempering a strong flavour, which made them fairly straightforward and average among peers.
Barrel O' Fun Dill Pickle Potato Chips
You wouldn't find a more dill pickle aroma when opening a jar of pickles than a bag of Barrel O' Fun Dill Pickle Chips. The taste was much the same, a mild but strong pickle flavour.
