The business was purchased by Martin's Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc., Chambersburg, in 1994, and sold just last December to Eldon Dieffenbach, Berks County. Martin's planned to devote its energy to its baking business. Dieffenbach said at the time he wanted to add to his product line.
Thursday Dieffenbach announced that Saturday would be the last day the snacks were manufactured from the 6647 Molly Pitcher Highway plant. Fans flocked to grocery stores to clear out the Gibbles inventory. Dieffenbach said Gibble's Food was discontinuing production in order to focus on private label manufacturing. Approximately 30 employees are affected by the shutdown. Martin's was overseeing the distribution since December and intended to do so through April.
The original Dieffenbach's Potato Chips Inc. in Womelsdorf has publicly disavowed any connection with Gibbles. Online websites state that the family-owned business ended a relationship with Dieffenbach over seven years ago. The Gibbles CEO is listed on work-related websites as also involved in electrical contracting, wood reclamation, a farm operation and an IT company.
