This family-owned operation has been around for so long, they don't call their ridged chips "wavy" but rather "marcelled." This refers to a '20s hairstyle that was popular when Fred and Ethel Ballreich first set up shop. That was the only hair to inform their snacks, though, so don't go looking for "bouffant" or "mullet" bags.
In Cincinnati, if someone tells you to "get a grip," you don't need to wake up and confront cruel reality. You just need to open a bag of Grippo's. Thanks, Angelo Grippo!
The century-old company caters to local tastes with a Cincinnati-style chili flavor, redneck tastes with a beer can chicken variety, and everyone's tastes with a mesquite-smoked bacon bag.
Jones Potato Chip Company
Jones is a little younger than those other OG Ohio companies, but it's still had plenty of time to build up cred in Mansfield. And become a Mother's Day staple, apparently.
Whether you're after kettle, "home style," tortilla, or savory chips, Shearer's has you covered. Seriously, they weren't kidding about the savory part -- there's a hot dog flavor.
