Popcorn, nuts, cookies and tortilla chips are just some examples well-liked snacks. However the most popular of all snacks are potato chips. People would agree that it just takes one chip to tease the taste buds creating a craving for more. This tasty was accidentally invented in 1853 in Saratoga, NewYork.

George Crum was a chef in a restaurant where fresh fries were a popular menu item. One day, a diner complained that the fries were too thick and soft so he sent the plate back to the kitchen. George Crum hoping to satisfy the customer, made a thinner batch of french fries. The man was still unhappy Crum felt insulted and was angry. He decided to annoy this fussy man, He made paper- thin fries which he cooked in boiling oil. He salted these crispy potato slices and then served them. The customer, surprisingly enough, loved them and potato chips were invented.

News of this creation spread and soon other people began making their own version. In 1895, the first potato chip factory was opened and potato chips became available in grocery stores. Today most people would agree that when it comes to eating potato chips, it is difficult to just have one.
