Potato Chips BY Grzegorz T. Introduction Americans spend almost $4 billion every year on a treat we know as potato chips. A popular story says they were invented in 1853 in Saratoga Springs, New York.

One day a customer kept sending his plate of fried potatoes back to the kitchen asking that they be sliced thinner and fried longer. George Crum had a bad temper, and he decided to get even with the complaining diner. He sliced the potatoes very thin, fried them till they were curly crisps, and salted them. Certain the guests would hate them, he had the potatoes delivered to the table . To everyone’s surprise, the patron was delighted and asked for more. Choice 2.
