Utz Potato Chips factory.

Utz Factory Tour

Great walkthrough of chip-making at the Utz factory. Only about a 20 minute excursion, but free chips at the end and some cool views of chip-making in action. An outlet store around the corner has free samples of every Utz chip flavor (and there are a lot). Between both, about 45 minutes well spent. Try the Butterfinger Pretzels!

Potato Chip Tour, Neon Sign

A great self-guided tour of the Utz potato chip plant. At the end of the tour you get a free bag of chips, and they are the best I've ever had. Well worth the time. About two blocks away from the factory is the Utz neon sign on the Utz factory store. You can see it as you drive north of town on Pa Hyw 94.

You can't beat the taste of potato chips fresh off the factory production line.
