Although potatoes have been around for a long time, the potato chip was invented by George Crum. Crum started his career as a chef at Saratoga Springs’ Moon Lake Lodge in 1853 where French-fried potatoes were a popular item on the menu.

The idea of frying potatoes originated in the 1700s when Thomas Jefferson, a Frenchman, introduced them to Saratoga. Crum laughed when customers complained that the fries were too thin and fried them for them.

They loved them so much that they asked for more. The potato chip was born. Crum opened his own restaurant from there. Jay Gould, Cornelius Vanderbilt and William Vanderbilt visited his restaurant with a basket full of chips at each table.

Crum’s invention was not patentable, but it became one of the most important snacks in the history of the food industry. Many of them started their own food production, including Hanover Home Potato Chips, which was founded in 1921.

Laura Scudder, a few years later, came up with the idea of placing the chips in wax paper bags rather than in glass containers.

Lay’s was established in Nashville by Herman Lay shortly thereafter. His potato chips were the first to be successful on a national scale. National Potato Chip Day celebrates the crispy, salty snack and its fascinating past.
