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.
