It’s National Potato Chips Day! Here’s Their Delicious History! [VIDEOS]
It’s National Potato Chip Day! Who doesn’t love potato chips? I found the story of how they were invented and it’s a pretty funny little story!
According to ideafinder.com it all started from a chef trying to get back at a complaining customer!
In the summer of 1853, Native American George Crum was employed as a chef at an elegant resort in Saratoga Springs, New York. One dinner guest found Crum’s French fries too thick for his liking and rejected the order. Crum decided to rile the guest by producing fries too thin and crisp to skewer with a fork. The plan backfired. The guest was ecstatic over the browned, paper-thin potatoes, and other diners began requesting Crum’s potato chips.
What a better way to celebrate then with making your own homemade potato chips!
