Kitchen Cooked Chips began during the 1930's, when Flossie Howard began making potato chips as a way to make ends meet during the Great Depression. She lovingly did the entire process of peeling, slicing and cooking the potatoes by hand in small, cast iron kettles. She began the business from her home, and later moved to a building that was once was a church in the small Central Illinois community of Farmington.
The homemade chips were a huge success in Farmington and soon word spread and the Howards began distributing to other local communities. It enabled the family to run a profitable business nearly 35 years.
When Flossie’s health deteriorated the business was sold to local man Richard Blackhurst. In 1976 a potato chip factory was built in Bushnell, Illinois to fulfill the expanding market. A new factory was also built in Farmington.
Since the companies beginnings in the 1930’s Kitchen Cooked has been proud to support the local community by buying local ingredients for their flavorful products. the company employ nearly a hundred people - From the farmers that grow the potatoes to the salesmen who stock grocery store shelves.
Kitchen Cooked Rippled Classic Chips
These chips managed to have hardly any sodium content yet still tasted of mildly salty potato. The oil was busy at work with this chip. With a whopping three grams of trans-fat in just one ounce, a carrot would certainly win the healthy eating contest. They are called 'Classic' though, and they are traditional chips. Kitchen Cooked Classic are undoubtedly a shout out to the good old days when food tasted nice.
Kitchen Cooked Classic Chips
The full name for these chips is (taking a sharp breath), ‘Kitchen Cooked Spicy Louisiana Style Tangy Hot Sauce Flavored Potato Chips.’ A quick look at the nutrition label and there was the unwelcome sight of three grams of trans-fat per ounce. The taste was a rather acidic hot sauce flavour with no regional observation. They were a generic hot sauce flavour that began hot, mellowed out while eating, but left a hot after-taste. Not too spicy, but enough to make them enjoyable.
