Greasy, crunchy, deliciousness…Happy National Potato Chip Day!!!

1. Potato Chips date back to 1853. An unhappy customer at a restaurant in Saratoga Springs, NY kept returning his fried potatoes to the chef, requesting they be prepared much thinner. The chef sliced them so thin that they could not be eaten with a fork. Thus was born the potato chip.

2. As junk food goes, potato chips contain only 3 ingredients (potatoes, oil, salt)

3. Potato chips sales are over $15B  a year worldwide. They tally up about one third of all savory snacks!

4. One of the most popular flavored potato chip varieties is Sour Cream and Onion. Compared to just 3 ingredients in the original version, this one has 20 ingredients including MSG, Palm oil, and artificial coloring’s (EWWWWWW!)
