Red Wine Vinegar Kettle Cooked Potato Chips, 2 oz
Salt and vin chips of the past may have turned your happy face to a big pinch, but our chefs added the perfect amount of red wine vinegar to this insatiably crispy kettle chip that gives a well balanced flavor-not just a feeling.
What started out as a garnish to a salad turned us into a snack food company. The red wine vinegar chip has captured hearts and taste buds all over the hometown of Cincinnati.
Hen of the Woods – Cincinnati, OH
Weird name, right? Even weirder when you find out we don’t sell chicken feed, forestry services, or even mushrooms.
So if it’s not a product, or even an ingredient, just what the heck is it?
Hen of the Woods is an attitude — a tireless belief that there has got to be a better way.
It all started with a salad, and three Cincinnati chefs who were absolutely convinced that there had to be a better way to make gluten-free croutons. Countless trials later we found it, and our Red Wine Vinegar potato chips born. That better crouton became a runaway hit, and grew into a complete line of full-flavor, better-than-the-other-guys potato chips that we sold to like-minded food lovers, restaurants and breweries.
Surely, we said to ourselves 20,000 conference calls later, there had to be a better way to share our products with people who would really love them — a way to sell them without selling out. So we built our brand market by market, partnering in each region with grocery stores and food retailers who had tried our products and were as excited about them as we are.
Finally, after long careers in restaurants, we know there has to be a better way for chefs, line cooks and other people who love food to make a living. We started Out of the Woods which is a collection of initiatives and projects where Hen of the Woods partners with leaders and non profit organizations locally, regionally and nationally.
