March 14 is National Potato Chip Day, celebrating a snack food that brings in more than $16 billion annually in the U.S. market. The potato chip has an interesting history dating back to the mid-1800s. One story of origin states that the potato chip was first created in 1853 by George Crum in New York, who made ultra-thin and heavily salted fried potato slices as a joke for a customer who complained that his restaurant’s fries were too thick. Others place the origin of the potato chip earlier, as recipes for potato chips seem to be present in cookbooks published during the 1820s. No matter where potato chips came from, it is certain they’ve been embraced as a favorite snack food available in hundreds of different styles and flavors; and we celebrate National Potato Chip Day by showcasing the following 30 potato chip package designs.
