HERR Foods® Snack Factory Tops USA Today’s List of "10Best Readers’ Choice: Best Food Factory Tour"

Nottingham, PA (September 2, 2015) – Herr Foods® Snack Factory in Nottingham, Pennsylvania today announced it has been named America’s Best Food Factory Tour by USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice awards. The 10Best Readers' Choice winner is determined by popular vote among an initial list of 20 nominees, exclusively chosen by a panel of food and travel experts. After four weeks of consumer voting among the top 20 finalists, USA Today readers chose Herr’s Snack Factory Tour as the nation’s favorite.

"It is an honor to be named the nation’s Best Food Factory Tour. The fact that Herr’s was chosen by popular vote makes the win that much more special and we’re thankful to our loyal fans, " said Ed Herr, President of Herr Foods Inc. "We take tremendous pride in providing a live-action, up close view of our manufacturing process and strive to give our visitors the best experience possible. Our associates work hard to ensure our Snack Factory visitors have a memorable and enjoyable time while touring the facility."

The unique one-hour snack factory tour begins with the story and rich history of Herr's. Visitors are then taken through the working manufacturing rooms, allowing groups to get so close to the action that tour guides actually grab potato chips— crisp, warm and fresh off the line— to share with the group. After filling up on facts about pretzel and chip-making, visitors can browse in the gift shop to pick up souvenirs, as well as their complimentary bags of chips —included in the tour.

Herr’s Snack Factory Tour is family fun for all ages and is open year round. For more information or to schedule a reservation online, please visit Also, be sure to join the conversation at
