The Chippery is a potato chip making machine you can watch in action at Albertsons. Potatoes are put in the chute on the right - they're sliced and fried and they come out as chips on the left, where they're twirled in a bowl with flavoring. The best part is that when the Chippery is making the goods, there are lots of samples. Salt and vinegar, BBQ, sea salt, and sweet potato salted chips were the offerings yesterday. I'm always tempted because they're good, but they're pricey: $3.99 for 6 ounces. This kind of live action frying reminds me of the french fry vending machine that used to be at the Boise Airport. I wish I had a picture of it because it's been gone for a long time. The fries were just awful with grease that was not so fresh - but it was quite the novelty.
