If the door is open the store is open and fresh chips are available. If you're there when the wok is on, watch them being cooked. Taro chips, sweet potato chips, potato chips.

From when I was a little girl I loved Taro chips. Taro Ko Factory are the best tasting Chips. They have I think 3 different types and they are all good. You should try them.

We always make it a point to stop here in Hanapepe for taro chips. We wanted to take pictures but were afraid to ask if it was okay. He looked interesting frying up the chips. Maybe we will ask next time. Good product.
