Snack Trucks

By Jeremy Selwyn

Without a doubt, the best kind of truck on the road today is the snack truck. Without snack trucks, we'd all be a lot hungrier. We've been traveling the world in search of every snack truck that we could find.

Nottingham, Pennsylvania

The Herr Foods factory in Nottingham is a Mecca for snack trucks large and small.


Now Arriving

A Herr's van arrives at the plant to join the many other trucks already gathered there.


Ready to Go

A tractor prepares to pull a large Herr's truck out of the loading dock.


Meanwhile in the back lot, a whole fleet of trucks awaits the creation of more salty snacks.


Shop 'Til You Snack

Don't come to Nottingham just for the trucks. Herr's also offers a factory tour, and it's a great way to see how they make potatoes into delicious salted snacks. Nothing makes you hungrier than watching chips get made, so there's a small restaurant in the lobby where you can grab some lunch. Plus, there's a gift shop offering discounted chips, cheese puffs, pretzels and more, along with a wide selection of Herr's merchandise. The day I visited, they were giving out samples of some amazingly delicious chocolate-covered potato chips.
