Ireland's Tayto park an ode to potato chips

Posted Thursday, July 23, 2015 8:26 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Despite German ownership, Tayto is so fundamentally Irish that a branded theme park was opened in 2010, near the company’s factory about 30 minutes from Dublin. This park was the idea of Ray Coyle, who founded Largo Foods and is still managing director and a minority shareholder. But Largo Foods doesn’t own the park. Built on land owned by the Coyle family, managed by Ray’s son Charles and with other family members involved in operations, it is essentially a Coyle family business closely affiliated with the Tayto brand, while remaining a separately-owned operation.

There's a joke about Irish and potatoes in there somewhere, but I seem to be coming up empty.

An ode? How about a haiku to potato chips?

Thin and crispy chips

Salty delicious taters

Snacking made simple
