Family with deep Idaho roots creates ‘Real Idaho Potato Chips’

It’s no secret Idaho is known for its potatoes, but when it comes to potato chips, most are grown somewhere else. That’s something a Treasure Valley family decided to change, reports Karen Lehr for IdahoNews6.

Brothers Marc and Kyle Nehring put their heads together a few years ago and set out to create an authentic, savory potato chip made from real Idaho potatoes. Fast forward to present day, and their Idaho “Real Potato Chips” can be found on store shelves across the Treasure Valley.

“Ours is a kettle-style chip,” Kyle Nehring said. “We also leave the skins on. It really is just focused on that potato flavor,” Marc added.

The brothers are passionate about the quality of potatoes grown in Idaho, and choose an Idaho russet for their chips, which isn’t usually the case. “That is the main point of what we’re trying to do and a lot of consumers don’t realize this. Your Idaho russet potato is very rarely if ever used in a potato chip application,” Marc said.
