Maebo's One-Ton Chips
Anyone remember these?
Back in the 1950's, the Maebo family started making these "One-Ton" chips in their garage using the same dough recipe, with a little sugar added, that the family used to make won ton pi (won ton skins). After some generous deep frying, the resulting chip was thick and crunchy, slightly sweet and slightly salty. These were the chips that I, and many others here in Hawaii, grew up with.
Recently, the company celebrated their 55th year in business. And what about the chips? They are exactly the same as I remember them being.
