Rue Farms owners Jeanne and Matt Rue use only local, non-GMO russet potatoes for their kettle-cooked potato chips. The delicious result is golden brown chips that are more crunchy than crispy and come in palate-pleasing flavors like Dill Herb, Back Woods BBQ, and Apple Cider Vinegar. 937-717-6707; www.ruefarms.com.
Her company’s name may give a nod to a historic local bridge, but Lorraine Walker brings coffee beans from around the world to her Gallipolis roasting facility. Smooth-tasting Buckeye Breakfast Buzz, Pumpkin Spice Blend, or Snow Angel, a Yuletide offering with hints of coconut, caramel, hazelnut, and vanilla, fit nicely in any coffee-lover’s stocking. 740-709-1610; www.silverbridgecoffee.com.
