Over 5,000 people help to set Guinness Record!In appreciation to our customers for the last 40 years, we asked you to be part of history! On Saturday, February 9, 2008, Troyer Farms set a Guinness World Record at the Tullio Arena/Erie Civic Center in Erie, PA for “The Most People Eating Potato Chips at the Same Time!”
Attendees were given a complimentary vending-sized bag of our regular chips. 5,200 people packed the stadium and crunched at the same time! According to Erie Otters staff members, this was the second highest turn-out for the 2007-2008 season. WSEE-TV, WJET-TV, WICU-TV, and the local Fox affiliate were all on-hand for the event. Now, all photo, print, audio, and video coverage will be submitted to Guinness.
Here is what some fans had to say: My son and I just got back from a night at Erie Otters Hockey game. We loved the fact that my family was part of a word record. Thank you.

We want to thank you for going the extra mile to organize the Potato Chip Crunch World Record Event. We enjoyed the opportunity to be part of this terrific crunchy time!!! We were explaining to our 8 year old son how Troyer Farms Potato Chips have always been a part of our life. When we were young, Troyer Farms Potato Chips were a special treat for us. We remember when the chips were packaged in a cylinder-shaped paper box. Not only did we love eating the chips, we kept those cylinder boxes and created many different things out of them.
