Utz Potato Chips is a snack brand. The company was founded in 1921 and distributes a variety of potato chips and other snack foods throughout the United States.

In 1962, Sterling Cooper hired Jimmy Barrett, a shock-comic, to do TV spots for Utz Potato Chips. During one of the commercial shoots, Jimmy insults Edith Schilling, one of the owners of Utz. He later apologizes for his behavior. ("The Benefactor")

Don Draper watches the Utz commercial later on, once it makes it to the airwaves.
