NBC’S “THE OFFICE” GOES ON THE
HUNT FOR LOCAL BRAND CHIPS

October 13 – Nottingham PA – “There’s no Herr’s chips left!” exclaims Karen as she stands in front of the vending machine in last night’s episode of “The Office”, a NBC comedy that is based out of Scranton PA.”

The Herr’s Salt and Vinegar Chips have that affect on people. With that distinct taste, nothing compares. Jim, who is falling for Karen, then tasked himself with the “special project” of finding Herr’s Salt and Vinegar Chips for her. Jim proceeds to call local grocers, markets and even the Herr’s local branch office.

“The fact is, this scenario is not that uncommon,” comments Ed Herr, President of Herr Foods Inc. whose personal favorite is the Salt and Vinegar. “Regularly our customers tell us that they have a Herr’s favorite they want vendors to carry. That is because our chips are made with the freshest potatoes and the best ingredients. They are worth the hunt.”

In the end, Jim hunted down a bag of Herr’s Salt and Vinegar Chips for his desperate officemate Karen. Jim called the Herr’s Warehouse who told him that the office next door had some left in their vending machine.

As is true in real life, a bag of Herr’s chips may be closer than you think. While Herr’s Home Office is in the small town of Nottingham, PA, Herr’s distribution stretches across the Northeast US. “We are just glad to satisfy taste buds in “The Office” as well as other offices across the Northeast,” said Don Cartusciello, VP of Herr’s Marketing.

Karen happily finds a bag of Herr’s Salt and Vinegar chips waiting for her on her desk before the episode is over. Thankfully, there is a happy ending for everyone else who is craving Herr’s. The Herr’s online store makes it possible for people in offices everywhere to enjoy Herr’s products.
