5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Just do it! Look up the tour times and take your friends and family. It is informative, and the chips taste amazing fresh off the line.

“Snack food company known for their potato chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Golden flake snacks are a regional company know for their potato chips. They were one of the sponsors of the Bear Bryant show in the day along with the local coke bottlers. "Great pair says the Bear."

Today there are few regional potato chip companies left. It is an interesting tour if you have the opportunity.

“You have not lived until you eat a fresh potato chip right off the production line”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

If your kid is going on a field trip, be the parent that goes. You have not lived until you eat a fresh cooked chip off the production line.

“Great chips! Even better employees!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Road construction made getting there an adventure and we thought we would be late, but we ended up being the only ones there for a tour. You need to wear closed shoes (no sandals, no crocs) and no jewelry. They prefer long pants, but we got in wearing capris. Sadly, my child started feeling nauseous (there is a heavy oil odor) and we did not get to do the whole tour, but the guide was gracious and kind. She and other workers we met actually managed to make the experience a positive one for us. We ate our sample chips later and now are looking for Golden Flake wherever we go!

“Great Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

This is a fun tour of a potato chip and snack food "factory". If you tour be sure to wear closed toe and closed heel shoes. It is a requirement of the company to go on to the production floor.
