Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips

Uglies

There's no doubt about it: potato chips are a snack-time staple. We're partial to these sea salt and vinegar chips made from "ugly" potatoes that would otherwise be thrown away.

Sustainable goodness

Uglies lowers their carbon footprint by using locally-sourced "ugly" potatoes that would otherwise be thrown in landfills. They also run a zero-waste facility, diverting over 200 tons of waste from the landfill to be combusted for energy recovery.

Why we love it

Thousands of pounds of potatoes are thrown out every year only because they're "ugly." We're salty about it. Which is why we've fallen for these sea salt and vinegar chips from Uglies. They take in all the unwanted potatoes—you know, the oddly-shaped misfits that wouldn't be purchased in a supermarket—and turn them into delectable chips. You won't taste the difference, either. In fact, you'll probably enjoy them more than the average bag.

How it does good

Finding a new use for unwanted potatoes

Uglies is a family-run company in Berks County, Pennsylvania. They make their chips from locally-grown potatoes that can't be sold to grocers because of how they look. By doing this, Uglies keeps tons of waste out of our landfills. Their manufacturing facility is also zero-waste and landfill-free. Every year, they send over 200 tons of waste to a local incinerator where it is converted into energy. Another way they keep their carbon footprint low is by manufacturing everything on-site at their plant. This way, they cut down on their transit time and in turn, their use of fossil fuels.

How to use it

A few of these on the side of your plate and you'll feel like you've died and gone to heaven.

When you're done...

Chip bags should be sent to TerraCycle for disposal.

These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

Uglies

UGLIES® Kettle Cooked Potato Chips are chips crafted from potatoes with minor cosmetic imperfections. This includes potatoes that are too large or too small, those with the wrong color, or ones that have the wrong sugar content. Some of the potatoes are slightly blemished and, of course, some are just farmer surplus. Until now, these orphaned potatoes were destined to become food waste. UGLIES has helped to reduce food waste by saving over 1,500,000 pounds of potatoes since 2017.
