Last month Better Made Snack foods celebrated their 90th anniversary!! On August 1, 1930, the Cross and Peters company founded the iconic Detroit brand. The company started this year off with a bang by releasing their Jalapeno Cheddar flavored Popcorn and Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels. This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own, your experience may differ.
Their History in Detroit
In 1930, several potato chip companies competed in Detroit for a piece of the market. In fact, over 20 potato chip manufacturers existed. However, today Detroit has only one company left, Better Made. “We started in Detroit and we are committed to remaining in the city,” says David Jones, President of Better Made.
Their commitment to creating the highest quality products is surely a key ingredient to their success. “We’re not trying to be the biggest, we’re trying to be the best!” says CEO, Sam Cipriano. “We’ve tried to make the best product possible, and that hard work paid off as we’re the last one standing.”
Better Made Today
Today, the Detroit-based snack company continues to develop and provide a wide variety of high-quality award-winning snack foods in Detroit. They currently offer 124 flavors and products that include a wide variety of potato chips and potato sticks, gourmet popcorn, pretzels, tortilla chips, as well as pork rinds!
It’s hard to believe that this Detroit-based company uses 60 million pounds of chip potatoes every year to produce their delicious products. What’s even more amazing is that the company uses Michigan potatoes for ten months of the year, and sources the best potatoes in the United States for the remaining two months.
Regardless of whether you prefer your snacks sweet, salty, or red hot, they have the perfect snack food for you! These chips make a perfect picnic or on the go snack your whole family will love.
