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.

Since I am a cheese freak I would try anyone with any type of cheese sauce.
Yes! You are just like me:) Love it!
Sounds delicious! Never had them before but anything with bacon….yummmmmmmmmmyyyyyyyy!!!!
They are amazing!!! Good luck Heather! 🙂
Bummed I didn’t win last week! All I saw was the word bacon, and cheese and I was sold. 🙂

That looks amazingly delicious. I’ve never had the Tasti Chips but they’re definitely on my to do list now.
You will love them:) Good luck in the contest!
I have never tried Tasti Chips at the fair before. I would like to try the plain chips with the bacon cheese dip.
Tiffany, great choice:) That is the one I pick too:)
Mmmmmm! This sounds amazing! Definitely will be trying 😀
Awesome:) Good luck in my contest!
I have never been to LA county fair. It would be great to go.
It is always a fun time. Thanks for the comment Ruby:) Good luck!
I really want to try the Chipotle BBQ Chips! That sounds soooo good!!
Awesome! Good luck in the contest:)
I believe that these chips are the best around L.A County since they are processed with the finest ingredients available. Also, the twists on the chips are very awesome specially on the Dirty Chips really mouth watering. Lastly, another thing I like most about your blog aside from the great reviews, delicious foods and tasty cocktails is that you never fail to provide schedules on upcoming events.
Thank you so much John for the kind and thorough comment:) I love to help people to have a great time out and about on the town:) Yes, those Tasti Chips are fresh and amazing!!
Extremely generous portion sizes, always cooked well and wait times aren’t too bad.
They are huge portion sizes..right you are:)
These make me hungry and feel like going to the circus.
The circus:) I have not been there in years!
I would love to see it uniform cut frozen chips from a bag, crunchy and oily. Thanks
These are all fresh and made from scratch!
Over here they take those chips, and make Irish Nachos.. They have to be the best Nachos i have ever eaten..
I love Irish Nachos, but I have only had them made with french fries. I would love to try them with fresh chips:)
I love all kinds of chips.. But if the tasti chips is gluten free, then that would be my #! favorite in this category..yumm…with cheese sauce its going to taste divine, right? 🙂
Thanks for the comment Vinma:) Gluten free is definitely a perk:)
Chips are my downfall. We have at our Fair in WA Dirty Nachos and they are amazing. I live for the fair in the summertime and I eat my way through. Thank goodness it only comes once a year. I absolutely love ready your blogs and seeing what new deals you have.
That is awesome that you have something similar:) They sound great!
Love the fair, and all the fun. Your blog is fun!

I had never tried this!.. Love the whole excitement and fair.. I love making my own potato chips too.. everything homemade taste much better!.. Well sometimes.. got to experiment first lol
You make your own potato chips? How awesome!! I would love to check those out:)
Tasti Chips sounds great and the fact they are gluten free makes them even more attractive!! I can’t wait for our fair to come. Of course, we don’t have Tasti Chips here – sad!
