A Bit of Trivia ~ Potato Chips

Potato chips have been available for 160 years. They were invented by George Crum, a chef at a lodge in New York City. A customer complained that the French Fries they served were too thick. Crum made thinner fries, but they were unsatisfactory. In an effort to annoy the customer, he sliced the potatoes too thinly to use a fork. Surprisingly, the customer loved them, and potato chips were invented!
