National Potato Chip Day


About National Potato Chip Day

Date: Celebrated annually on March 14

Mark National Potato Chip Day this March 14 with a bag of your favorite spud snack.

The first potato chips were served in Saratoga Springs, New York in 1853, where they were referred to as Saratoga chips for many years. They came about after a customer kept sending back his potatoes complaining that they were too soggy. The chef decided to cut them paper thin and fry them in oil as joke. Some joke that turned out to be.
