New Orleans’ chips by doing a Cajun crunch
[Gramercy. LA] — Here in the Big Easy. it’s all about the spice. From Po-Boys to potato chips buy discount canada goose chilliwack xs . the proper seasoning is essential. So little wonder that our favorite chip comes in a variety of tastebud-tantalizing flavors. with imaginative names like Spicy Cajun Crawtator. Voodoo. and Cajun Dill Gator-Tators – along with the old standbys like Regular discount canada goose chilliwack xs . Jalapeno, canada goose camp hooded jacket women's . Salt and Vinegar. and Mesquite Bar-B-Que. among others.
“New Orleans is probably our largest market. ” Rod Olson. president of Zapp’s Potato Chips tells me. “We sell more chips in the French Quarter than Frito-Lay does. Po-Boys and Zapp’s go together. Muffalettas at Central Grocery and Zapp’s go together. ”
Zapp’s processes about 120. 000 pounds of spuds and fries them in nearly 8. 000 pounds of a peanut oil blend each day. The potatoes are sliced thicker than most chips and go right into the fryer. “The key to that is you load all these wet potato slices [into the fryer] in less than a minute, canada goose retailer winnipeg . ” according to Olson. “That drops the temperature of the oil discount canada goose chilliwack xs discount . and it’s that temperature drop that creates the curl. the crunch. and the flavor is basically from the peanut oil blend discount canada goose chilliwack xs . ”
The result. “It’s the best-tasting chip made. ” Olson claims, canada goose chilliwack xxl outlet store . “And that’s the mouthfeel and the taste that derives from the peanut oil. And then the seasonings on them. none of them are cheap. They’re selected because they taste good. and as much as possible we try to have interesting flavor combinations. ”
Ron Zappe founded Zapp’s Chips in 1985 after his oil-field equipment business tanked discount discount canada goose chilliwack xs . along with the price of crude oil in the early ‘80s. He converted an empty car dealership in St. James Parish into a chippery. installing two small fryers and a packaging machine in the former showroom. Ron passed away in 2010. and Rod Olson – who started with the company its first year as the New Orleans distributor – became president.
At the beginning. Zapp’s produced only regular and jalapeno-flavored chips. but before long. Ron Zappe developed a recipe with spices reminiscent of a crawfish boil. He called the new flavor Spicy Cajun Crawtator. and today it’s one of the company’s best-selling varieties discount canada goose chilliwack xs .
Over the years. the company has added flavors. some more popular than others. “We did a Key Lime flavor…that was one of our most limited editions discount canada goose chilliwack xs 2015 . ” says Olson canada goose stockists in scotland outlet . “And twice we’ve done pizza flavors that just haven’t taken. ” But the company still gets requests for past favorites like Honey Mustard. Bacon and Cheddar. and even Sizzling Steak ssense canada goose chateau Down Parka cheap . And the newest limited edition – Baby Back Rib (. ) – will be hitting store shelves this week.
And Zapp’s is currently phasing in packaging with styling cues emphasizing its Crescent City connection. The updated design features a French Quarter-style signpost canada goose heli arctic tan outlet online . with the package’s distinctive bright. vertical stripes embedded with a subtle fleur-de-lis design canada goose parka chateau navy outlet online .

Zapp’s doesn’t offer public factory tours. but you can buy the chips throughout Louisiana. and in Texas canada goose lodge down jacket sale store online . Mississippi. Alabama and the Florida panhandle discount canada goose chilliwack xs . as well as online and through mail order.
