“Waste of time”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The self-guided tour is most uninformative. Posters on the wall help just a little. When you are done (it takes about 2 minutes -- IF you read all the posters) you can have two small bags of chips, free, in the gift shop. Pretty much a waste of time.

“At the potatoe chip factory”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

It was interesting to see how potato chips were made. At the end of the tour we received samples of the chips and they were very good. A very nice gift shop too.

“Self tour”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Don't expect much of the tour as you basically just walk thorough and look at the production line. The store has plenty of ways to buy products from chips to t shirts.

“Oh Well...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We stopped at the factory while on Cape Cod and was told that the factory was not producing any potato chips because of a bad batch of potatoes. We could, however, still walk down the walkway and read their clever signs that tell of their process. Be aware that there is only one...yes ONE single bathroom for the factory so if you happen to get there at a busy time, be prepared to wait. Your reward for walking the hall is a sample bag of chips in the gift shop. Though we liked it, we would have preferred to actually see something in process. The tour is free though so nothing lost.

“Nice to see if in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I was anticipating something grand but was surprised at how small the factory was. It is self guided, a treat to read and see, as well as two bags of samples at the end of the tour. Very clean facility, in a nice setting (though in a commercial park), a must if in the area. The shop after the tour was a nice bonus.
