As of now, my partner Mush and I are undecided upon the name of our newest project, but this is what we are thinking so far, and I would appreciate feedback if you guys can think of any comments or questions.

What it is: ButterFried Chips   (if there is no butter involved the name will be changed, we may say screw healthy and go for orgasmic taste, or keep great taste and go for moderately healthy)

ButterFried Chips, or whatever we decide to name them will be a new homemade potato chip snack with a twist.

Before we get to the twist, they will be a delicious hand cut Potato Chip, cooked with quality ingredients, with no unnatural seasonings or preservatives, and because of that, they will be much more healthy then store bought chips, while being more delectable.

After getting over the fact they will be delicious in themselves, we get to the twist. Inside each bag there will be a chance of receiving a special purposely shaped chip that will be sealed and slightly separated from the rest of the chips which can be collected or eaten if you so decide. Each "special" chip will be issued in sets, and marked, for example one set that we are thinking of releasing as a 1st edition promo over the Bitcoin forums would be bitcoin shaped, and marked 1/50, 2/50, ... 49/50, 50/50. Each bag that comes with one of these special chips would come with a certificate of authenticity (we have some security measures planned to insure that the chips you have are legitimate)

Now, before you think to yourself, this is stupid, why would anyone want this? First think, you have all heard those stories of Cheetos that look like Jesus selling on Ebay for thousands of dollars. Second, put the special chip aside, they will be a delicious chip in themselves, and the best part, if you don't care you can eat the special chip and make them that much rarer, helping out those that want to collect, and as it will be no different than the others besides its shape and markings. If you are in it for the special collector chip, a limited amount will be produced, and you will know exactly how many there are, and which one you have, as well as your certificate to prove that you have the real deal. Also take into count, certain foods have a fan base, for example rare kinder egg toys can go for hundreds, even thousands of dollars!

Varieties: We have a few varieties planed as of now, but if people are looking for special flavors in particular, we will see if we can create the correct taste.

We will be doing feasibility, taste tests, etc in the next couple of days to make sure we can use the best quality materials, at a reasonable price.

And the icing on the cake, should we get good feedback on our chips, and find that people appreciate the idea, we will attempt to get them marketed to local grocery stores, and eventually sold at every location that sells Lays. So you never know, hold onto those special promo chips that we will be releasing in our first batches, because they could be worth big money one day, and if not, well eat them, they are good!

we will keep you updated as we finalize details, and create the perfect tastes.

.FORTUNE.JACK.

Flavor recommendations? I thought of some funny flavor names- SHA256 SaltNPepper Bitcoin Barbeque and Mining Rig Melted Cheese
 Also, I think the bitcoin limited edition shapes should be alpacas!

Yeah, if you have any flavor suggestions, feel free to list them. We will see what we can do about creating them. Do keep in mind though, some flavors that are used by the large companies are chemically created, as in they have chemical engineers invent different flavors that they add to their food, we will not be doing this.

Something on the lines of BBQ, doable, as we can find a mixture of BBQ spices that will create a suitable BBQ taste, Pickle flavored, also doable, something like taco, or whatever other odd flavors Doritos come in, may or may not work, so you can suggest them, but we may or may not be able to make them.

Ok guys, I'm doing the cost analysis right now, to see how much it would cost to make them, and then an estimate of what we will charge per bag. I'll post what I think the price should end up at in a few minutes.

*Edit*

Ok well, we will be using Peanut Oil, a very delicious and high quality oil, don't fret, those with Peanut Allergies can still eat foods cooked in Peanut Oil. It has great benefits, as it is considered one of the healthier oils, and is second in taste only to Lard.

If you would like some additional info

 http://www.peanut-institute.org/peanut-products/peanut-oil.asp

As for potatoes, we will be using quality potatoes purchased directly from the local grocery store, so there will be no huge trucks full of potatoes that are dumped and used without inspection, we will be hand cutting each one, so if we wouldn't eat it, you sure as hell will not be eating it. Rest assured these chips will be of the finest quality.

As soon as we start taste testing, I will be able to get a better idea of the cost, and can set a price per bag.

What do you think of the name Butter-Fried Labs?

We could make the chips taste a bit buttery, but only enough for them to taste good, not sickening, and they would taste unique.

Plus we could be like, ButterFried Labs Releases new Chips for Miners!

Name changed to ButterFried Labs, as we have said, we will test out many chips, with and without a buttery taste to make sure nothing that we sell is disgusting, or if its going to be disgusting, we will give you warning.

Our lead time should be around 50 days instead of 55, just kidding, it takes but 10-15 minutes to make chips the right way. There will be lots of pictures uploaded as soon as we start our testing (waiting for Mush to get here), and hopefully we can get people interested. As soon as we start the project, and upgrade our equipment a bit more, we will be talking to local grocery stores, and seeing if we can start the ButterFried Labs Chips awareness to the general public. It should also do something for Bitcoin awareness, as many people don't understand the concept of Bitcoins, but they sure do understand potato chips.

If you have a few bitcoins lying around, and don't know what to do with them, you could always send a donation to help aid development, or upgrade our equipment, Grin keep in mind, at current bitcoin prices, even .05 BTC helps us get testing some new flavors. And if there is a type of chip you are looking for, any flavor that you think others would like, or just a type that you would like to have, please suggest it, and we will attempt it if it sounds appetizing in the least bit, make it if it is doable, and make sure we send the person who came up with the flavor a thank you.

If you would like to donate to the cause of helping Bitcoiners get a Bitcoin sponsored snack, An updated BTC donation address will be added is the address to donate to. The smallest donation helps, thanks.

Maybe if you donate large amounts we can prostitute our brand name a flavor after your business. Cheaper In Bitcoins Cheddar? Bitmit Bacon?

Litely Salted chips will be of minimal Difficulty for your body, though I can't say whether or not they will be very highly adopted compared to more eye-catching varieties.

We will be offering different cuts, depending on how you like your chips ie different thicknesses, and the option to ask for unseasoned, light, normal, or heavy on whichever seasoning we will be using, for each variety we will be offering.

Right now we are about to start work on figuring cook times, chip thicknesses, etc, by trial and error of course, as thats the most delicious method. Then once we have figured out the basics, we will move onto simple seasonings, such as the classic salted or salted and peppered chip, and finding the most pallet pleasing amounts of seasoning. Then we will start working on our different seasonings. I will start uploading pictures as we get cooking. We and our test group are preparing to eat a lot of chips.

Litely Salted chips will be of minimal Difficulty for your body, though I can't say whether or not they will be very highly adopted compared to more eye-catching varieties.

We don't honestly believe we can compete with the large companies, our goal is to become a regional chip, such as Utz. But what we are hoping to do is establish a niche. Our chips will be made from much better quality materials, therefor they are much more delicious. An extra cost does come across, but there is always a time when you need a better quality chip. Also, all of our materials will be coming direct from the local grocery store, so if the consumer cares, they can feel better knowing they won't be eating various chemically engineered flavors.

They all sound good. The only one on there that we will not be attempting is the Calamari rig flavored. Seafood flavorings are very hard to create naturally, and normally require actual dried powdered seafoods. I don't want to mess around with that kind of thing, due to the risk of sending someone into anaphylactic shock due to a seafood allergy.

I can even see trying the fudge kind. Whats better than a treat thats sweet, salty, and crunchy? (I may have described a chocolate covered pretzel, but chocolate chips would do the same, and be better in my opinion)

Oh, and just an update, the process is in motion, pictures will be coming up asap as well as various test info.

Mush here, making chips now, about to post some pictures, we made a special bitcoin chip. Anyway, yes we will ship them internationally if you are willing to pay the price for shipping, I'm not sure on the details of sending snacks overseas, or how well they will fair (you dont want to eat chip dust obviously) but we will look into it. On a side note, I will say that the chips seem pretty hearty, because they are thicker than standard chips.

Is anyone interested in buying some right now? We could ship out a few batches, but please post here soon, so we can make them.

So far they taste great, but they come out a bit burnt, but seriously these are way better than any chips I've had so far. Right now we are trying out the SHA256 Salt N Pepper flavor, and its awesome.

Anyway, if you would like to order some please POST HERE, and we will respond to you ASAP (salty is making chips as I write this) The pictures will be up within the hour, most likely in 20-30 minutes.

Ok! Picture time, here's the progress so far. Sorry if the pictures are big, but don't they look good?

Heres what we started with:
http://i.imgur.com/FH7l5.jpg

we then went to step two, slicing
http://i.imgur.com/e0NKV.jpg

Then we need to soak the slices, this removes excess starch, and makes the chips crispy
http://i.imgur.com/k8aeY.jpg

Then you need to dry them before adding them to the hot oil (water and hot oil doesn't mix well)
http://i.imgur.com/AB4BU.jpg

This is the first introduction of potato to fryer
http://i.imgur.com/smOMG.jpg

So the cooking begins
http://i.imgur.com/chMqF.jpg

The final product, cooked a little bit more than we planned, but they were delicious.
http://i.imgur.com/BzaLm.jpg

And as promised, we will be making chips in shapes and with images, Mush cut this one with a knife, but we will be using a stencil to cook on an image rather than cut, but this was the first attempt.
http://i.imgur.com/teygd.jpg

And here's how it turned out, not quite perfect, but it was the first try. And yes, I should be a hand model

Well I appreciate your input. I suppose we could create "adult toys" from potatoes, but I can see that going very badly, so we will just stick to chips.

Ever wondered why half the bag of chips in a commercial package is all air? It's to prevent chip dust like you were worried about. If you take a standard bag of chips and stack 10 bags vertically, the bottom one will act like a balloon to protect its contents. Additionally, the empty air space is filled with an inert gas such as nitrogen, instead of plain air which would impart a stale flavor.

Just some tips for shipping. Wink

I appreciate the tips, but I think we will be alright during shipping. We put a batch of chips into a big brown paper grocery bag, and shook the hell out of it, and no chips broke. The difference between our chips is, they are much thicker than lays for example. If you feel like pulling out a ruler, our chips are about 30 millimeters, so there is actually a noticable thickness, but of course we will test it, before shipping them out.

If I may make a recommendation for whipping tests...

Through extensive theoretical testing, I have determined that the ulitmate durability test for shipping should involve cramming a brown paper bag with 2 fistfuls of chips, then delicately strapping it between a juicy raw rump steak and the back of a midget clown (prefereably dressed as a KKK clan member or Nazi as this increases the risk assessment integrity IAW ISO 2002). Take said midget clown to one end of your local football field and tell the midget his (or her) task is to run from one end to the other and therby exit the arena.

Now comes the technical assessment side.

Around the area you are to place a number of small terrier class dogs whom have not been feed for at least a day but 3 is preferable. If you have said midget clown dressed in a KKK/Nazi styling and wish to obtain a higher level of credability then approach your nearest oppressed / minority group and ask them to assist by attempting "pay back" on said KKK/Nazi midget during the 100m sprint section.

The assessment.

Fire the starters guns then release the hounds / howling mobs. The runner has 2 minutes to complete the obsticle course or the event ceases, which ever is first.

The results.

Remove the chip packaging from between what remains of the steak / midget sandwhich and assess intact rate of chips against the 4 standard categories (below in ascending order).
4. Shithouse - nothing left of the midget or steak let alone a chip
3. 3rd world - chips are semi- intact but you wouldnt feed them to a refugee
2. Finger-Licking-Good or simply FLG - these babies are semi intact and you can seperate chips from flesh to get the intended chip flavour such as "dot chock fudge"
1. Holy shit , a miracle or HSAM - through an act of good at least 3 chips are intact. Good for DHL shipping.

P.S. this is a joke and if your upset then lighten up...

If I may make a recommendation for whipping tests...

Through extensive theoretical testing, I have determined that the ulitmate durability test for shipping should involve cramming a brown paper bag with 2 fistfuls of chips, then delicately strapping it between a juicy raw rump steak and the back of a midget clown (prefereably dressed as a KKK clan member or Nazi as this increases the risk assessment integrity IAW ISO 2002). Take said midget clown to one end of your local football field and tell the midget his (or her) task is to run from one end to the other and therby exit the arena.

Now comes the technical assessment side.

Around the area you are to place a number of small terrier class dogs whom have not been feed for at least a day but 3 is preferable. If you have said midget clown dressed in a KKK/Nazi styling and wish to obtain a higher level of credability then approach your nearest oppressed / minority group and ask them to assist by attempting "pay back" on said KKK/Nazi midget during the 100m sprint section.

The assessment.

Fire the starters guns then release the hounds / howling mobs. The runner has 2 minutes to complete the obsticle course or the event ceases, which ever is first.

The results.

Remove the chip packaging from between what remains of the steak / midget sandwhich and assess intact rate of chips against the 4 standard categories (below in ascending order).
4. Shithouse - nothing left of the midget or steak let alone a chip
3. 3rd world - chips are semi- intact but you wouldnt feed them to a refugee
2. Finger-Licking-Good or simply FLG - these babies are semi intact and you can seperate chips from flesh to get the intended chip flavour such as "dot chock fudge"
1. Holy shit , a miracle or HSAM - through an act of good at least 3 chips are intact. Good for DHL shipping.

P.S. this is a joke and if your upset then lighten up...

As a black jewish little person I find this very offensive

Alrighty, testing day 2 begins. We have what we believe to have perfected our "SHA 256" SaltnPepper chip and our original salt chip after hundreds of batches. We are now changing how the potatoes are sliced, going more for the traditional circle cut instead of the long cut, as we believe that they will cook a bit more evenly this way. I will honestly say, these are the best chips I'v ever had. As for how they taste, think about boardwalk cut french fries, but chips instead of fries, I would say they are similar to that, but with a better seasoning mix. We may or may not work on fixing the "special chips" today, but we will be looking for a more viable method of getting the correct shapes and pictures on them.

We are trying to figure out the best way to ship them, and how many we can ship for what costs, we will try and figure this out in the next day or two.

Will there be a Yahoo Press Release?

We are being interviewed by Steve Jobs as we speak.

Anyway, I appreciate the support, name/flavor suggestions, and all the love from the community. Our next test that may be the most important, is testing the shelf life. I took 31 chips and put them into a ziplock bag, and I will just be leaving them on my counter sealed. Every day I will eat one, and hopefully find out how long these chips can safely be stored at room temperature before the taste begins to change. I'm hoping it will be at least two weeks, as these chips will be made to order, they won't be sitting around besides in transit time, and hopefully giving you well over a week to eat them. It would be very nice if they stayed fresh longer than that, and I'm sure I can change the time with vacuum sealing, and other methods, but we will not be adding any preservatives.

You'll probably also want to store them at warmer temperatures than that, due to shipping conditions to test out if they'll spoil during shipping.

Good suggestion, but my room temperature is about 86-90 degrees, so I think that should suffice. But we will make sure we have all senarios covered before shipping out bad chips

A little late to the party... but could I suggest a name change to ButterFried Bags?  

Funny you should mention that, we are actually thinking of changing the name all together, because as of now, we haven't been able to incorporate butter in any way. If you add butter before cooking, it messes with the oil, and under the right conditions will catch fire. If you add the butter after cooking, then the chips are greasy. We are thinking about BetterFried Chips, or BetterFried Bags would work too.

Ok, a little bit of research yielded some info about shelf life. Just in a ziplock bag, they should maintain 100% freshness/taste for about a week. If they are sealed, about 3 weeks. 3 weeks sounds good to me, so I will start seeing how to vacuum seal them without crushing them.

Also for shipping concerns. I am about 95% sure these chips should have no issues with being shipped. They are very resistant for chips, I suppose due to their size. I shook them violently in a paper bag, and not a single chip broke.

As well as testing shelf life on them, we are also starting to try to figure out what increments to sell them in. I'm thinking we will just sell them by ounce with there being a minimum purchase order, of whatever makes economical sense. So for example you could order 3, 3.5, 5, 10 oz, 8 kilos, 800 lbs! What I mean is, you can pick your own increments.

to put it in perspective, the large single serving bags, that you get at a grocery store is 1.5 oz, with the huge bags being 11 oz.

Ok, so good news, like an ordinary chip, you can leave them out exposed to air for awhile without them getting stale *edit* we are up to 9 hours or so now. I'm not sure how much longer it will take before those that I left out get stale, but that's a good sign anyway.

We are still checking the best feasible way to ship them. Food vacuum sealer bags would be the best option, but they are quite expensive, and at this point, we are trying to keep expenses low, so we are checking out how well standard Ziplock bags work.

And I should also mention, we will accept Litecoins as well as Bitcoins as payment for chips, when we set up pricing, amounts available, etc after we have finished all necessary testing.

Well, heres a pic of the first bag. The scale reading is 4.39 oz, and the bag is a quart sized bag.

http://i.imgur.com/2BA9J.jpg

Those chips sitting outside the bag, have actually been sitting out for about 9 hours now, and are still fresh and good tasting. I actually don't think regular Lay's potato chips stay fresh that well when just left out, so I have hope!

I don't think I will ever want to eat potato chips from a store ever again after the tests.

And I am now shocked. 24 hours later, the chips just sitting on the table are still tasty and crisp. I will repeat, there are no preservatives or unnatural ingredients in our chips, yet you can leave them sitting out for an entire day, and they will not get stale. Come on Lays/Utz, how can you be letting this happen?

Ok, so I'm convinced these chips cannot go stale. I'v had some extras that wouldn't fit into the first bag sitting on my table in a bowl for over 2 days now, and they are still as crisp and tasty as ever.

As soon as I have confirmed that they can stay fresh for at least a week in a bag, we may be able to ship out our first batches. That being said, we will be figuring out prices when we do cost calculations with our next batch.

Can I suggest a "51% attack" flavor?  Maybe make it Sriracha or habanero flavored?

I like the idea and had a couple of questions/suggestions:

1. Do you plan on creating a website?
2. If not, can you at least post a price list of some sort?
3. When you ship, what will the chips be bagged in?
4. If you continue to use ZipLock bags, I recommend that you create a label that has the name of the flavor of the chip+any tagline associated with the flavor of chip.
5. In addition you should list the ingredients on the label as well as any website you create, in order to allow people with allergies to see what they are eating. This will help you avoid liability.
6. You should try to make some sour cream and onion chips.
 
I may order some, depending on the flavors.

1 Yes
2 Right now if you want some just ask, we are pretty much giving them away for the price of shipping, we just have to make more
3 Either ziplock bags or brown paper bags, they dont seem to go stale...
4 we are going to make little stickers to go on the bags
5 why wouldnt we do this, unless we don't want you to find out our secret ingredient, toothpaste
6 We need a funny pun name for sour cream and onion though. The names are more important than the flavors. The Butterfried labs SC Onion?

For the onion part of the name maybe something to do with TOR?

A tank full of nitrogen is also not that expensive...

I would be more worried about that browning of the chips - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acrylamide comes to mind.

Thanks for that, we will look into it, but as of now, we aren't even sure if we will be able to sell the chips cheap enough to cover costs, while still being affordable, but should it be feasible, we will definately look into keeping them fresh in higher tech methods. I will say though, sitting just in ziplock bags, I have no doubt that these chips will stay fresh for a minimum of two weeks, more than long enough to have them shipped and devoured.

I should mention, I do have a vacuum sealer, but the problem with that is, that the bags are like, an extra $20, thats extra cost that I would have to relay to the buyer.

A tank full of nitrogen is also not that expensive...

I would be more worried about that browning of the chips - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acrylamide comes to mind.

That was very interesting, I did not know about that. But, be assured that all excess starch is removed from the chips before they are cooked. Any browning on the chips is due to the lack of multi million dollar steam frying equipment that big chip companies use. If you look at kettle fried chips, that are thicker, and actually still submerged in oil, you will find that they bare resemblance to our chips.

Ok, so after tonight, we more than likely will be entering our final stages. I have 5 oz of chips prepared, and I will make sure they fair well over the next day or two. In that time, I will be beginning to produce lods of chips for the debut of ButterFried Labs Chips! We will start accepting orders shortly, as soon as we figure out the best way to ship, and the best increments to ship in. We will be setting our prices as low as possible, with just a little profit margin for our time and to hopefully upgrade our equipment. I want to thank you all for following ButterFried chips, and I will be happy to host any questions, comments, or concerns you may have, and I hope you will as pleased with our product as we are.

We will start by debuting just our Original flavor, I will tell you, its not just your run of the mill salt, its got a few tasty tricks up its sleeve.

I like the name, we will probably start working on salt n vinegar some time in the nearish future. I'm not a fan of Vinegar chips, so I have to find people willing to test them for me, as well as a way of adding the vinegar flavor, as just dipping/brushing them in vinegar is probably the worst thing you could do.

So far, we have just worked on our "Original flavor" which is a Salt with a bit of something extra that just enhances the taste, but keeps the Original Salt taste, and a Salt and Pepper. But we will be working on new flavors soon. I just have to hit the grocery store and browse the spice rack to see what looks good. I know for certain we will be attempting a Salt and Vinegar, BBQ, Cajun, and we have a few ideas for other flavors. I just need to gather more people to help me test, because as good as these chips are, I do not want to eat another 8 lbs of chips. I was starting to fear for my health at that point, but have no fear, eating chips becomes work after a certain amount far less than that point.

Acrylamide is actually a quite big concern of consumers around here and chips manufacturers managed to cut the amount in half as soon as they were made aware of it that consumers don't want the stuff.

You might want to invest in a thermometer and measure the heat of your oil bath exactly - and keep it as low as possible. One thing I'd love to try is to hook up a PID controller to a temperature probe and an oil bath (so it keeps the temperature even after adding cold potato pieces) and precision cook these chips. I managed by the way to get perfectly golden chips from ordinary potatoes at home, but it's quite some work to even cook up a standard pack equivalent. Scaling up (I just used a pot and ~1 cm of oil) though might be easy.

Especially with something that can potentially poison or at least harm people though, I'd be a bit careful about selling/buying the stuff on the internet - cool names or not... maybe try to find a food lab on your nearest university that has chemistry students and talk them into testing some samples?

Especially with something that can potentially poison or at least harm people though, I'd be a bit careful about selling/buying the stuff on the internet - cool names or not... maybe try to find a food lab on your nearest university that has chemistry students and talk them into testing some samples?

I'm not trying to make light of the situation, but from what I have read after doing a bit of research is that Acrylamide are in nearly everything, and has been there forever. Acrylamide is found in all foods when you grill, fry, bake, toast, or roast many foods at temperatures over 250 degrees (aka everything) Now I will very well attempt to cook longer and at lower heat to prevent any Acrylamide that I possibly can, but the fact of the matter is, you will get no more harmed from the chips than you will eating lay's potato chips, or an order of fries at a fast food restaurant, but thats just that, AN ORDER of fast food fries, moderation is key.
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2005/07/07/potato-chips.aspx

That being said, of course we will attempt to lower any Acrylamides found in the potatoes, first by soaking the potatoes to remove as much starch as possible, and I will be testing the lower heat longer cook method, but removing it all together is an impossibility. But again, fried potatoes aren't the only thing with Acrylamides in them. Bread also contains a realitively high amount, as well as rice and cereals. Now I know this is not light matter, but I'v found the only way to avoid Acrylamides is to do a "No Grain" vegan diet without any starchy vegetables either, which honestly very few people do right now.

Our goal is to provide no more Acrylamides in our chips as you would normally get eating a regular diet.

What in our diets provides Acrylamides?

Potatoes: chips, French fries and other roasted or fried potato foods
Grains: bread crust, toast, crisp bread, roasted breakfast cereals and various processed snacks
Coffee; roasted coffee beans and ground coffee powder. Surprisingly, coffee substitutes based on chicory actually contains 2-3 times MORE acrylamide than real coffee

And Acrylamides aren't our only food based carcinogens,

Heterocyclic Amines (HCAs): These form when meat is cooked at high temperatures, and they're also linked to cancer. In terms of HCA, the worst part of the meat is the blackened section, which is why you should always avoid charring your meat, and never eat blackened sections.
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs): When fat drips onto the heat source, causing excess smoke, and the smoke surrounds your food, it can transfer cancer-causing PAHs to the meat.
Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs): When food is cooked at high temperatures (including when it is pasteurized or sterilized), it increases the formation of AGEs in your food. When you eat the food, it transfers the AGEs into your body. AGEs build up in your body over time leading to oxidative stress, inflammation and an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and kidney disease.

and, heres my last statement. "A three-year long EU project, known as Heat-Generated Food Toxicants (HEATOX), whose findings were published at the end of 2007, found there are more than 800 heat-induced compounds, of which 52 are potential carcinogens. In addition to their finding that acrylamide does pose a public health threat, the HEATOX scientists also discovered that you're far less likely to ingest dangerous levels of the toxin when you eat home-cooked foods compared to industrially or restaurant-prepared foods."

I'm concerned about that "something extra:" billy bob will sue you if he's allergic to it. Make sure you give a full ingredient list.

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

I wonder how KFC gets around that, by just being able to say 11 secret herbs and spices? In our case, they are herbs and spices, but if I gave it away, it would kind of ruin the secret recipe.

On a side note, do you think people would be turned away from our chips if we renamed them KancerKrisps?

I believe the difference between that and this is that KFC is a restaurant, whereas you're selling a consumable product that isn't in a restaurant.

Anyone eating delicious fried potatoes probably doesn't care too much about things like this... i for one, dont.

one name idea:
Stale Share Salt and Vinegar


Slogan- "the best bite for your bit""

anyways, what flavors do you have as of yet? from the thread im seeing plain and the salt+pepper and id be interested in ordering some.

I like the name, we will probably start working on salt n vinegar some time in the nearish future. I'm not a fan of Vinegar chips, so I have to find people willing to test them for me, as well as a way of adding the vinegar flavor, as just dipping/brushing them in vinegar is probably the worst thing you could do.

So far, we have just worked on our "Original flavor" which is a Salt with a bit of something extra that just enhances the taste, but keeps the Original Salt taste, and a Salt and Pepper. But we will be working on new flavors soon. I just have to hit the grocery store and browse the spice rack to see what looks good. I know for certain we will be attempting a Salt and Vinegar, BBQ, Cajun, and we have a few ideas for other flavors. I just need to gather more people to help me test, because as good as these chips are, I do not want to eat another 8 lbs of chips. I was starting to fear for my health at that point, but have no fear, eating chips becomes work after a certain amount far less than that point.

Glad you like the name. If you ever feel like shipping out for a tester, give me a holler.

If anyone would be to help us test, it would be the person that suggested the flavor (aka you). If we start getting little bit of capital, and can afford to ship samples, we definitely will.

I'm not sure how we will disclose what is in the chips without giving away the recipes, but I can guarantee it wont be MSG or various preservatives/flavor enhancers, it will be more along the lines of 1/8th tsp nutmeg, 1/16 tsp Cayyenne pepper. Something very few people should have issues with. Something just to add a slight bit of intrigue to an otherwise old recipe.

nnnnno.... "Natural Flavors" as listed on a coke can consists of several secret ingredients that few people know. The actual ingredients are not listed.

I suppose. Anyway, like I said, rest assured, these "special / secret" ingredients aren't flavor enhancers (MSG), or weird acids, or chemicals, or things I don't know how to spell (and I'm terrible at spelling, so you are safe). My definition of a secret ingredient is a spice or seasoning that can be purchased from a grocery store that adds a bit of intrigue to a taste.

kk, in response to the chip cancer stuff, people neednt worry about it to much. when stuff browns (im not talking about charred and crunchy) that's a natural process called the Maillard reaction, and all that brownness brings out a bunch of tasty chemicals (natural chemicals, like sugar). that's why fried stuff is always gold and tasty. sure, there are some potential carcinogens present depending on what youre cooking and a million other factors, but it's far less dangerous than other commonplace things like shampoo, raw pork, or crystal meth.

also, curry chips. mild indian curry and thai green curry would be the best i think. while i cant think of any classy names, the indian one could definitely have offhand indiana jones references, and the thai one would just taste good enough to not have a fancy name. THAI GREEN CURRY FLAVOR CHIP = tongasm

Oke, everything is coming along fairly well. A few minor setbacks, but nothing major and too time intensive. I came to find out SOMEONE used my oil to cook fish with, so I had to toss out the last of my peanut oil  Angry but we are hoping to have things starting to move along quite shortly, perhaps even being ready to ship by early-mid next week, or by next weekend.

We will try to perfect any imperfections in this time, and perhaps start trying a new flavor so we can have a few choices for our initial release. Thanks again for staying with us, and I'll try to keep the thread as updated as possible. Just wanted to make sure you all knew, we are approaching the final stretch.

With our next test batch, we will be doing the cost analysis, in order to set a final price.

I can't wait until these hit the market.  IMO everyone should support these small businesses.  Buy some stickers, chips, honey, alpaca socks - whatever!  You're helping yourself and them. 

PS - I know it's been done, but Old Bay on a chip is pretty good stuff.

I am glad to see that the project is still going and wanted to know an ETA to market+approximate shipping prices.


Thanks

kk, in response to the chip cancer stuff, people neednt worry about it to much. when stuff browns (im not talking about charred and crunchy) that's a natural process called the Maillard reaction, and all that brownness brings out a bunch of tasty chemicals (natural chemicals, like sugar). that's why fried stuff is always gold and tasty. sure, there are some potential carcinogens present depending on what youre cooking and a million other factors, but it's far less dangerous than other commonplace things like shampoo, raw pork, or crystal meth.

So you have tested exactly THESE chips and can confirm that they contain low/not dangerous levels of Acrylamide?
Even commercial products had ranges from nearly 2mg per kg down to 47µg per kg (http://foodwatch.de/foodwatch/content/e10/e5281/e9192/e9210/e16571/Chipstest_2008_Tabelle_20080715_final_ger.pdf, german) a few years ago. After some bad press "suddenly" Pringles managed to cut their Acrylamide levels by a huge amount.

Looking at your example pics (which might be badly lit) makes me wonder if these chips were either seasoned with soy sauce or badly burnt - I regularly fry my own potato chips and they more or less look and taste like store bought ones (only that they are a bit thicker, are without any additives and can be seasoned to taste), not dark brown.

What actually also works quite well is to cook the chips before frying - something that is also usually done with french fries too (McDonalds fries are cut, cooked, shock frozen and then fried on demand).

Thanks for all of the suggestions, guys. I'm not sure how we will go about having the chips professionally tested, but I'll do some research into it. I was going to start sending test samples out to a few buddies last weekend (8/4 , 8/5) but I had a minor mishap with my fryer, and will be upgrading shorty as I mentioned earlier) Too add on to the BFL tradition, On top of that, I will be leaving for vacation for about a week so there will be another slight postponement, but don't fret, progress is being made, and these chips will be a reality soon enough. Maybe I'll even get some work done while on vacation. I'll be heading up to Maine into potato country, so you never know, I might find myself a supplier.

Right now, I'm working on trying to get the chips to brown up a bit less, they are by no means burnt, but they are a bit browner than I'd like. I'm hoping a new cooking technique, as well as a new and improved fryer will help with that.

My cost analysis will come about when I send my samples to a few people, as I am unsure of the best way to ship them as of now to avoid shipping costs. I went to the post office, and realized the $5 flat rate boxes are anything but a good deal, I would be hard pressed to fit a 1 oz single snackbag in one of those, so I will be looking into other options.

Along with all of this, Mush and I will be working on a site shortly, so as I said, progress is being made.

I should also say, we have made progress in all fields in general. New recipe as well as making them a bit better tasting by removing some excess cook time. We are still trying to improve, but you must admit, these look a helluva lot better than our first batch.

*edit* I should probably mention that the picture is a 1 gallon ziplock bag full of chips, about 3 lbs of potatoes down into chip form. Even my family and I haven't managed to make much of a dent in this bag just casually eating them over the course of a few days. I should also probably mention, they are just as crispy and as far from stale as you can possibly imagine as they were when they came straight out of the fryer, minus the hot. I have eaten nearly 12 lbs of potato chips since beginning testing, and I can honestly say, Lays and Utz just don't do it for me any more.

The name is a parody (in good humor) of BFL, we in no way mean to mock them, nor imply we have any affiliation with BFL. We just figured that having a catchy name that sounds like an already established BTC business would help with our product catching on. Of course the #1 factor there is taste, which I'm quite sure our customers will be pleased with. Hell, I'm pleased with our product right now, and it isn't even finished yet.

I'm also glad the community as a whole is interested in food products. I mean, when you are sitting around, doing some BTC/LTC business, watching your computers generate money for you, why not indulge in a snack that your computer can generate?

P.S, its especially nice getting that kind of comment from another food product.

Since I removed the Donation address I have been getting PM's asking for a new donation address. We really appreciate the donations, as even .005 BTC or 1 LTC helps quite a bit towards testing new flavors, buying more materials, and cutting out of pocket start up costs. Even more than the donations, we are loving the support, its been a while since I'v seen people take a shine to an idea better than what we are getting now.

So if you would like to continue donating to the cause of having our miners fed with delicious and nutri... uhm, ok I'm not going to lie to you guys, we are going for taste and quality over heath benefits (isn't that how snacks should be?)  you can send Bitcoins to 12LC65tumCMB9jcCD8zEaCpJ6tAeQJLkmu

Or Litecoins (because we are a BTC/LTC business) to LXiKGc1MT4sPAiHddMgumLzpE2te5aXVBQ

Thanks guys, and just a quick update. Mush and I are working on the website, we will start sending out test samples to various BTC/LTC users, and hopefully upgrade to our professional production equipment ASAP.

I appreciate the donation, thank you very much.

As for the picture, it is just some salt that fell off the chips, the picture is very large, so tiny details are very obvious. I found to eliminate condensations, after cooking I leave the chips out on drying racks with paper towels to absorb any extra oil, as well as letting them cool, this prevents any condensation from occurring in the bag, and keeps the chips from getting soggy. I had a slight problem with one batch that I hastily put into a bag so that I could keep it away from various people that were intent on devouring my entire batch, and the chips didn't crisp up very well.

Be careful with butter flavoring:

http://news.yahoo.com/chronic-butter-flavoring-exposure-linked-harmful-brain-process-160609953.html
 Lips sealed

Well, when we were thinking up how to cook the chips and create their unique taste, we had though of adding actual butter, not butter flavoring. This lead to three major problems. 1. They were horrible, you don't want butter and oil mixed, very bad. and 2. It would effect their shelf life negatively, and 3. Butter is very expensive, especially if we were to add butter to every single chip.
So, as of now, there actually is no butter or butter flavor added to this chips at all, which leads us to believe that we will be changing the name of our chips to BetterFried instead of ButterFried.

Thanks for the concern though.

As I said in the OP, the name is subject to change, it started with BuddyChips (after an inside joke) then ButterFried when we thought we could incorporate butter, because really, what doesn't taste better with butter? And for now, we will be changing it to BetterFried as we haven't found any practical use for butter yet.
