We loved seeing how potatoes end up being sorted into large for large bag and small for the snack size bag about 45 minutes to see and listen to the free self guided tour.

Took a tour of the Utz potato chip factory. It's a self guided tour along a hall overlooking the factories 5 production lines. See the entire process of chip making. It's a quick trip ending with a sample bag of chips. Be aware, it's in a different location than their outlet store, but about 5 minutes away.

This is a fun, interesting and quick tour. We really enjoyed it. At the end of the tour you get a free sample of chips and a coupon for the outlet. There are so many fun snacks to see and try at the outlet that you must go!!

Self guided tour sort of sterile and bland.
You view all through a glass window and there is no guide. U can do it in ten minutes so if it's on the way to something very nice stop otherwise don't go out of your way.

If you love UTZ potato chips, then this is worth it. Very small but full of so much information. I was really surprised at how the potato chips were made. It doesn’t take long 15 mins too! But the kids will love it!
