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."

Dakota Style Jalapeno Kettle Chips
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a heavy jalapeno aroma. This made the Taste Test somewhat disappointing because while tasting of jalapeno, it was not nearly as hot and peppery as it could, and probably should, have been. There was insufficient after-taste, and while it was a pleasant experience, should a fiery pepper just be pleasant? I will quickly answer that - No.
Dakota Style Mesquite Bar-B-Q Chips
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a thick and heavy smoky aroma as soon as the bag was opened. It was stronger than the flavour, which although also full and smoky, lacked a little in the barbecue section of the partnership. It was a good tasting chip though, and certainly one worth recommending. It was, however, relatively high in saturated fat and also particularly high in salt content.
Dakota Style Original Kettle Chips
‘Original’ usually means, plain, unsalted, unseasoned, lacking in flavour - A bit pointless unless it is accompanying an all singing and dancing sandwich that can handle the pressure of providing the diner with flavour. These, however, had more oily potato with a touch of salt than the vast majority of plain and boring chips on the market. A very impressive version of the variety.
Dakota Style Salt & Vinegar Kettle Chips
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a rather powerful blast of vinegar, which saw said nose withdrawn from the bag quickly. Unfortunately, the taste was not quite as strong. The oil may have over-powered some of the flavour, but I found it fairly well-balanced. The vinegar and salt combined well to make an even tasting and flavourful chip.
