Come learn about the life of a potato turned potato chip! The Southern Weekend and Rachel Leigh explore the Golden Flake factory.
It only takes a few steps for a potato to go from growing in a field to turning into a delicious chip. We stopped by Golden Flake to see how they’re slicing it up!
First off, the potatoes come in and get weighed on a truck. Then they’re rolled off the truck into a peeler.
After that, it’s a trip through the slicer.
Then the slices get a bath to get rid of some of the starch.
Next, it’s time for the frier. After they fry for a little while, they’re lightly salted.
Then a conveyor system takes the fresh chips to a bagging station.
Then, they’re off to a local grocery store so you can take them home and snack on them!
