Cincinnati Style Chili Potato Chips Make Some Noise

Bon Appetit recently featured the popular Cincinnati Style Chili potato chips from Ohio's very own Mikesell's Snack Food Company in a new list of "Regional Potato Chips You’ve Never Heard Of."

According to its website, Mikesell's Snack Food Company has “been around longer than almost every other potato chip company in the United States.” Founded in 1910 with a dried-beef-and-sausage model (whelp!), Mikesell’s soon got into the potato chip game and never looked back. At Mikesell’s, chips aren’t ridged or rippled—they’re “groovy”—and newer flavors include the zingy “Cincinnati Style Chili”, which boasts notes of allspice, cinnamon, and cumin with a tangy tomato-vinegar undercurrent. Beyond the company’s native Ohio, you can find Mikesell’s bags in Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, and online.
