Snyder of Berlin Chips 65th Anniversary Snyder SnackShots Photo Contest



Chips are a summer food we always enjoy in my house. This year my son has loved to say "Chips" for some reason the word cracks him up. He will point to the cupboard and ask for chips with his lunch.



My son loves these ones. I like that they are tasty and dont get his hands coated in cheese powder

These were my favorite!



We had our chips as a snack during the afternoon while we played video games and watched cartoons. I really enjoyed the plain potato chips too. They had a great crunch and were not greasy. We served some with a clam dip for dinner with steak. It was a hit.





Each month the judges will select one photo entry that will be qualified for inclusion in the final judging of the Snyder SnackShots™ Photo Contest. Here's a Press Release (PDF) with some more details.

Eight semifinalists will be chosen: one each month, June 2012 - January 2013, for the final selection among all entries received.

Your photo should include Snyder of Berlin products in some way.
 
I am putting on my creative thinking cap to make a fun photo to enter the Snyder SnackShots Photo Contest. I would love to win any of the prizes!
