Beginning at a small farm in Ithaca, NY in 1960, Off The Cob Chips have become a staple in my diet. Picked at the peak of freshness and then ground into chips, sweet corn provides a distinct “corn-on-the-cob” flavor that has taken not only my city, but the whole Northeast by storm.
Off The Cob Sweet Corn Tortilla Chips in the brainchild of Cameron Sheldrake who began the company at the age of 22. Starting in 20 Whole Foods in the New England area, he led his company to the popular show, Shark Tank, and business has been booming ever since!
I don’t know if Cameron remembers, but I first met him at my job, Collegetown Bagels a few years ago, when I told him about my favorite chips. At the time, I only had seen Off The Cob at my local co-op, and had not tried them. He told me about the small company he started, and being a lover of sweet corn, I bought my first bag.
I will not ever go back to any other brand.
The flavor reminds me so much of the fresh ears of corn I used to eat as a kid. My dad grew sweet corn, so I know what is fresh and what needs extra butter just to taste good. These chips need NOTHING for my to eat the whole bag…
…which I did after my last race 🙂
When Molly, Cameron’s partner, reached out to me, I would have written this post without needed to be sent any chips (which they so kindly did anyway). The chips are sold in various sizing, but let’s be real, I only buy the biggest bag and are available in almost 300 stores nationwide.
You can also order here on their shop page.
I usually eat them plain, but also love dipping them in salsa, cheese or refried beans. The sweet chips and salty dip pair together like nothing else.
These chips are vegan and gluten-free, sweetened by the corn and evaporated cane juice.
I think you all should head out the door right now and go buy some!Who doesn't love CHIPS? Check out this review of @offthecobsnacks Sweet Corn Tortilla Chips! #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #twithaca #ithaca Click To Tweet
