Founded in 1908 as the Leominster Potato Chip Company in the town of Leominster, near the New Hampshire border, Tri-Sum has a pretty good claim to being (as their website brags) “America’s First Potato Chip” manufacturer. In addition to the unflavored Tri-Sum originals, the firm also sells flavored chips, including Barbecue and Sour Cream & Onion, under the Wachusett label.
