Route 11 Potato Chips
You may not recognize the name but we know you'll recognize the packaging of those crispy, flavorful Route 11 Potato Chips that come in such flavors as Chesapeake Crab, Salt 'n' Vinegar and the tangy Dill Pickle.
This year during your travels, take the scenic route to your closest-to-home potato chip factory (11 Edwards Way, Mount Jackson, Va.), roughly two hours from D.C.
It will be 20 years this April since Route 11 made their first batch of the ultimate lunchtime side dish. Their goal has always been to be a waste-free facility. They do this by giving all potato peelings to local farmers who have very hungry cattle, and give away their extra oil to locals who use it for biodiesel fuel.
