Take a Factory Tour in the Snack Food Capital of the World

In and around the cities of York and Lancaster, you’ll find the factories that create Martin’s, Herr’s, and UTZ potato chips, and Snyder’s of Hanover and Julius Sturgis pretzels. It’s this reason that the region has earned itself the moniker, “Snack Food Capital of the World.” With National Potato Chip Day quickly approaching (it’s one of our favorite holidays), there’s no better time to take a factory tour of these top snack food brands and to get a behind-the-scenes look at how your best-loved snack foods are made.

Plan your visit today and don’t forget to pack some snacks; these tours are guaranteed to give you an appetite!
