Toronto – March 11, 2020 – National Potato Chip Day is celebrated across the country on March 14 – a day in which Canadians gather to celebrate the country’s #1 snack food.
The origin of the potato chip can be traced back to 1853 where they originated as chef-cooked restaurant fare, but later went on to be mass-produced for home consumption in the 20th century. Flavoured chips were then introduced in the 1950s, and now potato chip revenues total over $15 billion annually worldwide.
Chips are Canada’s most popular snack food, accounting for nearly 60% of the domestic snack food market.
Whether you like kettle cooked, ruffled, flavoured, or other types of chips, National Potato Chip Day is the perfect excuse to eat delicious, Canadian-made chips.
