National Potato Chip Day History:
Potato chips were supposedly devised during 1853 by George Crum, as per saying goes. Crum who happened to be a chef, and based on who you ask, was of either Native American or African American origin. When a client objected that his fries were just too dense in proportion, Crum sarcastically transformed the potatoes as razor-thin and deep-fried them. He thought people would be able to take the dig rather to his surprise they loved it and started to ask for more!
Despite the fact that Crum did not patent his innovation, it became one of the most inventive appetizers in the food market. According to research, William Tappendon decided to sell and promote his potato chips near Cleveland, Ohio around 1895. Herman Lay developed Lay’s in Nashville shortly after and eventually turned his potatoes into a famous brand. National Potato Chip Day has thus been formed as a way to honor the salty, crispy food as well as its rich history.
