Let's talk about potato chips !

I love them and I bet you love them too.  In fact, I never met a person in my whole life who said they didn't like potato chips.  Have you ?

Potato chip is American English.  In British English potato chips are called, potato crisps.  Potato chips are a major part of the snack food industry (about 36 percent of the share).

Potato chips only came into being around 1853, invented kind of by chance by a cook at the Moon's Lake House in Saratoga Springs, New York.  His name was George Crum, a native American.

He was trying to please a customer, so he sliced a potato as thin as he could and dropped the slices into frying oil.  When they turned a light brown color, he took them out of the oil and sprinked them with salt.  "Delicious !" cried the satisfied customer, thus potato chips were born.

Recently I like Chip Star consume.  How about you ?  Calbee Nori-shio ?                                (V.C)
