Best Recommended Original Flavoured Potato Chips

Written by Updated ago

Potato chips have made its way around the world since 1853, eight years before the beginning of the Civil War. Its origin story started off with a hilarious beginning and it came to show that even back in the day, working in the restaurant was a drag.  A humble chef named George Crum at a restaurant called “Moon Lake House”. A customer came in to order a batch of Moon’s Fried Potatoes which was their signature dish. However, when served the customer decided to be difficult and asked to send it back as they were too thick. The second try was sent back as well as it was not to the customer’s liking. Insulted, Crum decided to cut the potatoes paper-thin, dumped it in the oil so that it became hard and crispy. He then salted it heavily. Thinking it would be inedible and some sort of a punishment turned out to be delicious pleasing the customer. Thus, the potato chip was born. And from that very day till this current century, a variety of potato chip brands have been sprouting out its own original flavour. Here are just a selected few that’s available in stores.
