chips were invented by George Crum in Saratoga Springs, New York
in 1853. When Commodore Vanderbilt complained that his French
fries were too thick, a potato was thinly sliced and fried in
hot grease. The resulting invention of crispy potato chips is
now enjoyed by all. Try to stop yourself once you begin dipping
