Summary
Some things go together and some things belong together. Today is the day to celebrate that most satifying of combinations; chips and dips!

While the humble American chip industry began in a restaurant in Saratoga Springs, New York, it was Dayton-based Mikesell’s Potato Chip Co. – founded in 1910 – that mass-produced potato chips for home consumption.

In 2022,, the potato chip market was worth around $40 billion in worldwide sales. According to Statisca, 284 million Americans consume potato chips each year – about 1.85 billion pounds of chips, or 6.6 pounds per person.

Given that popularity, it’s no surprise we have a national holiday dedicated to our favorite snack food.

But really – isn’t a chip naked without a dip?

All kinds of dips – hummus, salsas, guacamole – have been around for centuries. And since 1954, onion dips have dominated in grocers’ refrigerated cases, making chips and dips a staple of tailgate/holiday buffets.
