About National Potato Chip Day
The story behind potato chips is that, on March 14th 1853, a picky customer kept sending back fried potatoes to the kitchen of a restaurant owned by Chef George Crum. He kept complaining they were too thick and soggy. That is when chef George Crum decided to slice the potatoes as thin as possible so they could not be eaten with a fork.
The chef then decided to fry them and send it to the customer. This creation was so loved by the customer that he became a regular visitor at the restaurant.
