There are some old Potato Chips companies and there is Good's. Ralph's Good first made Chips to this recipe in 1886. This is the original packaging. So, when you see old fashioned packaging like this from the 1920s and 30s, it would be fair to say it is dated. This however, is the history of the world's favorite snack food right here. Hopefully they will never change it.
Very light and crispy. There was only a real crunch when several were eaten together. The Snap Test revealed a slightly thicker regular Chip than most.
It is hard to imagine how long and tiresome the project must have been to create the perfect Potato Chip. It would have been a fad back in the late 19th century so Ralph would have had to come up with a premium style Chip that really looked the part if he wanted to serve them up. If these look the same, then this is how Chips are supposed to look. To us the texture felt remarkably grease free - there wasn't much in the way of residue. The surface was a creamy yellow and the Chips were relatively flat in appearance.
When these Chips were first served it would have been restaurant style; to sit alongside other food. In that respect they make complete sense - you don't add flavorings to other foodstuffs on your dinner plate. For the modern day, a lard cooked, 4g of saturated Chip does not really fit in. So, the flavor is all important, and it is a rich potato taste for a Chip that should accompany food. A luxury snack food. We would therefore recommend having it against a healthy, balancing luxury food like lobster or caviar.
