The Potato Chip

The Curious History of the Potato Chip

A chef by the name of George Crum created the potato chip in a petty way to appease a particularly picky guest, Cornelius Vanderbilt, who had sent his fried potatoes back for being too thick. Crum sliced them thin and fried them to a crisp out of spite. Rather than be offended by the jab, Vanderbilt was delighted. Soon after, other guests began requesting to try the thinly sliced fried potatoes. Before long, each patron was served a complimentary basket of potato chips with the meal.

The quality of United States chipping potatoes doesn’t happen by accident. Only through a fine-tuned mix of soil and climate conditions, advanced plant science, contemporary harvest technology, and on-the-ground know-how do U.S. growers produce chipping potatoes of such high quality that their reputation extends worldwide. Every step that U.S. growers take, from planting to storing to shipping, is designed to maximize the health of the potato and its subsequent chipping performance.
