“Good store, but nothing special”

Covered Bridge Potato Chip
Ranked #2 of 4 things to do in Hartland
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 October 2017

This is place where you can see potato chips being made for a fee. The tour is self guiding and there are lots of interesting factoids about chips presented. There is a small gift store attached to the factory that sells their product (potato chips) and other souvenirs. Nothing special, just interesting if you are in the area and want to take from driving.

Not only is this home to the world's shortest covered bridge, it is an interesting tour. It is self-guided so you can go at your own pace; it can take 20-40 minutes. You get a free bag of fresh potato chips also. We learned quite a bit & would recommend stopping here.

I'd driven by this place so many times en route to my east coast destination, I finally decided to stop. Glad I did! I'd never really thought about what does into the making of potato chips aside from the obvious... potatoes. A self-directed tour through the factory was surprisingly interesting.

Did you know potato chips were invented in 1853 in Saratoga Springs NY... and were a phenomenon solely in the US until 1921, when they were introduced in England? Or that Herman Lay popularized the snack by selling packages from the trunk of his car to US grocers in the 1920s... thereby establishing Lays as the first successful national brand? Or that chips pass through a metal detector before they're bagged? Or that nitrogen is what keeps them fresh in the bag? (tidbits of trivia you can use if you're stuck for conversation at your next office party.)

The tour was $5, well worth it. And bonus! They hand you a bag of fresh potato chips at the end. Delicious!

We paid our $5 and watched potato chips in the making while learning some history about potato farming/marketing in NB. Before we were done with our self-guided tour, someone offered us a bag of fresh-made chips. And they were delicious. There was the option of testing a variety of flavours -- but we like them 'au naturel'. Worth a visit.

This was a self guided, simple tour. 5$ a person. It smelled so good! Best of all, a little bag of the freshest potato chips you will ever get! I'll tell people about it!
