Better Made Potato Chips started making their great snack food in Detroit in 1930. They use over 50 million pounds of potatoes each year. You can take a tour of the plant on Gratiot or take the on line tour here. We had to stop for the Rainbows ...um um good! Better Made has been sending their chips to our troops in Iraq and apparently they are well appreciated because they have received letters of gratitude from our American soldiers.
