Default First food issue in a long time

Picking up groceries today, I noticed the 12 pack of Utz chips had exclusive Topps cards. Bought a bag, (The one with 12 snack size bags inside)

Included is one pack of three cards plus at least in mine, a header/coupon for more Topps cards.

special numbers, Like utz28, etc. And a different front design.

No idea yet how many in the set.
No offer on the bag for a mail in set.

Could be a decent one.

I never heard of Utz chips, what part of the country are you in?

Are their chips good? (Stomach growling, time to get a snack, I was fine till you mentioned food!)

Just so you know, this is actually the 2nd year UTZ has cards in their product.

I'm a bit north of Boston.

I didn't see the cards earlier in the year, but what's online says they've been out for a while. Maybe Market Basket just didn't get them?

I didn't see them last year.

The chips are ok, about what you'd expect from a brand priced between lays and store brands.

Previous wide distribution food issue was 2016 Wal-Mart Marketplace Pizza. Been a long time since Cracker Jack has had any cards.

Default UTZ cards are awesome

I personally collect them and love them.

There's 2 sets -- 2019 and 2020.
The 2019 set is identical to 2019 Topps flagship except for the numbering and UTZ logo. These sets could be purchased from UTZ.

The 2020 set is a whole other beast entirely. I personally how they look nothing like Topps flagship but sadly when I contacted UTZ about purchasing complete sets, they answer was "no, we aren't selling them".

They are a nice niche product and are considered SP's. They run quite a bit more than their regular Topps counterparts and while production numbers aren't known, the general feeling is that it's a great deal less than regular product.

I wish they sold UTZ chips here in Colorado but they're a product of the NE. Actually no, I'm glad they don't because I'd be buying 100s of bags of chips LOL

You can order the chips on Amazon in different quantities but I did not see anything mentioned about the cards, and Steve seemed to say the chips themselves are just ok.

The Utz chips are only in the large multi-bag packs. I live in Maryland and was just at the supermarket tonight and they are everywhere. I did buy a few and pulled a Mike Trout (on top) of the cello pack and sold for 20 bucks on ebay. The plastic containers are specially marked as having Topps cards. I like them.

Utz used to advertise in Yankee Stadium. In the original ballpark's final seasons, it had the ad on the extreme right end on the outfield wall. According to Wikipedia, Utz was a sponsor of the Yankees until 2012.

Just went to a local store and found two. Yea Haw, reminded me of the old days chasing down regional/national food issues which I love. My favorite was trying to complete the '86 Jiffy Pop set and ate so much of it I usually gave it away. My nemesis was the Gooden and had to trade a couple sets to get it as I was stationed overseas and it was difficult to complete the set with one store..

I called UTZ its a regional issue in the Philly , New York to Maine Area and they were sold out of the bags that contain the cards. My daughter picked up 4 from Shop Rite in NJ for me today

I picked up a bag the other day and pulled an Acuna Jr. They're neat cards.

Thanks,

Utz makes our favorite chips, bar none. The regular chips are fab but the harder to find Red Hots are basically crack in chip form.

The cards in this pack are Utz cards I believe...I had 2 packs, opened one. Cant find the singles for the life of me, I'm sure we have all been there!

Agree 100% Utz' specialty chips are terrific. We like the Salt & Vinegar and the Sweet Heat varieties.

Only one Houston chain carries them, and they have the typical 'MLB Licenced Product' logos but the packs that contain cards are not here in the Houston market as far as I can tell.
