Have you ever tried Tasti Chips at the county fair in Southern California? If not, you are missing out and must get to the L.A County Fair soon to check them out! Tasti Chips have been around for almost 40 years serving California Fairs! Founded by Grant Vartanian, he decided to bring a fresh potato chip to the fair industry.
Simple quality ingredients are used, such as fresh California grown potatoes, 100% pure peanut oil, and the finest cheddar cheese sauce money can buy and each basket of Tasti Chips is hand stirred while frying. Potatoes used for Tasti Chips have been California grown and packed for over three decades by a family owned farm in Southern California. The Jim’s Dandy brand is a leader in the industry and is a certified packing facility.
Tasti Chips also use the highest quality of cheese available from Chefmate cheese sauce. Cheddar cheese is first on the ingredients list. Cheese sauce flavors come in “Classic,” Cheddar Bacon and Jalapeno. For toppings, there are also real bacon bits!
The old Tasti Chips, when the company originally started were of a softer texture, instead of crunchy because there were no high efficiency fryers, like the ones used today. The fresh sliced potatoes used to be cooked in baskets that were sometimes moved down a line of fryers to keep oil temperatures at their highest.
Tasti Chips are also a company that is conscious of the environment and they use energy efficient fryers that use 30% less gas, use paper packaging to reduce landfill waste, all oil is recycled and unused products are donated to local food banks!
Here is a tip I know my readers will LOVE!!! Tasti Chips are GLUTEN FREE without any of the toppings. 🙂
The Menu of Tasti Chips is as follows:
- Tasti Chips®
- Onion Rings
- Cheese Sauce with bacon
- Cheese sauce with jalapenos
- Chili and Ranch toppings
- Ghost Chili Sauce
Chipotle BBQ (Dirty) Chips are the newest item this year.
Slow simmered beef, honey chipotle BBQ sauce, bleu cheese, shredded cheddar jack, diced tomatoes and green onion, topped with Sriracha aioli.
