With the upcoming warm weather it’s getting close to chip truck time – the time of year when we crave the warm, brown-paper-wrapped-cardboard-boxes filled to the brim with steaming potato-ey goodness and the time of year when the aroma of French fries can lead to an unplanned emergency detour to a roadside stand.

Equally salty, sweet, crisp and chewy, the search for the perfect French fry is on.

Make sure no potato gets left behind using this list of local chip trucks. Find one in your neighbourhood and the search is on for the perfect French fry.

Please check each business for their operating hours and when they will be starting their year as most of them are seasonal.

Dan’s Delicious Delights

1168 Stanhope Airport Rd., Haliburton

A fry stand like one from the good old days, this chip stand is no muss, no fuss fry bliss.

Fresh cut french fries are the name of the game at Dan’s Delicious Delights, located at the Stanhope Airport in Algonquin Highlands. Fried to a deep golden brown, why not top them off with some salt, ketchup, or Dan’s favourite, malt vinegar? Add gravy and real cheese curds to make a stellar poutine, or better yet, why not have a whole Fish and Chip combo? You won’t regret it.  Dan’s Delicious Delights
