Chips & Sea

It has been raining a lot since we've been on the cape but mostly we didn't allow that to stop us from sightseeing.  So today when we got a break in the rain we loaded up to head off to the Cape Cod Chip Factory.  One of my buddies alerted me to the factory and being that I love the potato chips it was a fun thing for us to do on a rainy day.  No photos were allowed in the factory so sadly I can't share their tour with you.  I can tell you that it is self guided and small but very interesting.  Also the lighthouse that is on the bag is the Nauset Light House which we had visited the day before so that was kinda cool!

Nauset Lighthouse ~ Cape Cod Potato Chip Symbol
Cape Cod Potato Chips began as the dream of two small business owners. They imagined a small operation where they could produce and sell the potato chips they had cooked in their kitchen for years. On July 4, 1980 that dream became a reality when they set up shop in a small store front in Hyannis. The big crunch of the kettle cooked chips soon became a local favorite. News of the chips quickly spread as tourist sampled the chips and took bags home to share. The business soon grew out of the store-front and a worldwide love affair with their natural snacks began.  I was surprised how many styles and flavors they actually make ~ I don't think we have them all in Florida.  At the end of the tour they have you enter the gift shop where they give you 2 small bags of chips and they sell many items with their logo on it and all the different potato chips.

After that we went for a ride down scenic 28 through many small towns and beaches ~ we did manage to come across 2 lighthouses. One we saw in the distance, Sandy Neck Lighthouse at Barnstable and the other Nobska Lighthouse in Woods Hole.

I see that I am going to have to add factory tours to my list of things to see. Add some potato chips to an avocado and cheese sandwich for added texture and taste. Yummm!

I am also vowing to do more factory tours! Why no photography though? Is there a secret ingredient we don't want to know about?
