A crunchy potato chip makes for a satisfying snack. Symphony Chips was founded by Dondre Anderson and his daughters, Amina and Amari in 2016. The recipe for their product was curated by Chef Andre Anderson using a blend of over 28 herbs and spices as a seasoning. The company has two varieties: Original and Smoked, seasoned with their signature blend ( salt, onion, garlic, paprika, ground mustard, and more).
