    You would not file for a patent on your chips because then you would have to tell everyone exactly how you make your chips. You should keep this information secret as a "trade secret". For example, Coca Cola does not file for patents on their Coke recipe. They decided to keep it a trade secret because that will last forever (patents only last for 20 years from the day you file it).

    You also do not need a copyright. Copyrights are mostly for creative works such as books, music, movies, etc. and also for software.

    The most valuable thing you should file for is trademark protection on your brand name and image. More information can be found here: http://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/basics/index.jsp

    Cost will be around $5,000.
