Sterzing Potato Chips

Pat Miller

I don’t remember ever having Sterzing Potato Chips at home but when I got married and joined a bridge club that was the only chip to have with dip.  They are only made in Burlington, Iowa so when I moved to Missouri I missed the salty, greasy, crunchy taste of Sterzing Chips.  When I moved to Nevada one of the ladies in my bridge club said she came from Burlington, Iowa and we discussed the chips. For my birthday every year she brought back from her family fishing trip in Iowa a bag of Sterzings.  I gave her fresh tomatoes from my garden and I considered that a good trade. They were such an important item in our family that they became the subject of a five minute debate at my sister’s reunion and Mindy got in trouble for innocently opening a bag of them.
