The Battle of The Chocolate Dipped Chips

Posted: Updated:

Lay's announced this week it is selling a limited time version of its chips that are dipped in chocolate, but people in the Red River Valley know this isn't a new idea. Carol Widman's Candy Co. has been making and selling "chippers" in the valley for 45 years.

The Valley Today crew graciously decided to put the two to a taste test on Wednesday morning.

Lisa Budeau and Kyle Bosch agreed they preferred the locally produced "chipper". 

Want to know more? Lay's Wavy Chocolate Covered Potato Chips are hitting shelves this week. They're about $3.50 for a five ounce bag and they are only at Target stores. The chips are a limited-time treat, through the holiday season.  

Carol Widman tells Valley News Live that they have been making "chippers" for 45 years. They originated with her parents store in Grand Forks. The candy making spans four generations to 1885 with her great grandfather in Dubuque, IA. There are now stores in Crookston, MN, Grand Forks, ND and in Fargo, ND.
