Ballreich's chose to call their potato chips "marcelled", which means "wavy", taken from the popular ladies' wavy hairstyle of the 1920's. (Read More)
If you haven't you should really read Ballreich's History, it's fascinating. From black and white photo's of them getting started, to the color photos and updated factory of the 21st century! the Ballreich family knows what they are doing for sure. And I realized that when I tried just one bag of chips they sent me. Yummy! Forget the stale tasting chips that you get from grocery stores that have probably been sitting on the shelf for who knows how long. I couldn't wait to dig into my gift basket (SPECIAL All Occasion Basket Original) Only $15.00!! That's cheaper than flowers, special candy, and 98% of regular gift baskets you can buy! Who wouldn't love to get a basket packed full (10 bags) of delicious tasting chips! I love product reviews who package their products in special ways. As you can see in the picture Ballreich scent me the special all occasion basket with of course chips.. But what made it really special was the cute little basket it came with it. I'm a sucker for reusing things like bags, boxes, cute gift wrap's with jewelry studs and Misc. But When I seen that it came with that cute little basket my heart melted. I have a million and one ways to reuse it. I don't know anyone who's heart wouldn't skip a beat if this amazing gift basket showed up at their door. I posted the picture (above) to my private personal facebook and all my friends and family went crazy posting comments about it, They loved it and wanted one for themselfs. ♥ Ballreich has other amazing Gift Baskets ready to order such as - Special Birthday Pack that includes a Ballreich T-shirt, Licorice, and more, the JUMBO basket, the Special all occasion basket that includes a really cute wicker basket!, they also have a Large Ballreich Meat Sticks gift pack sampler that my husband would LOVE to have.
