For those of you who don't know, March 14th is known by many as Pi Day (3.14). Unfortunately for me (but not necessarily for the kids), that resonates more in mathematics classrooms than in bakeries. I do love a good, round, sweet or savory pie, but I'll have to eat something else on this day to honor the missing "e". As luck would have it, today is also National Potato Chip Day! Potato chips date back to 1853 when Chef George Crum decided to slice potatoes thin and make them crispier rather than soggy after complaints from some customers. What an ingenious move! In 2005, the global potato chip market generated a revenue of US$16.4 billion which accounted for 35.5% of the total savory snack market that year (Wikipedia). So with that, I'll count down my top four potato chips in recent memory. I'll let my readers decide what I'm missing that should round out my top five! Leave a comment on here, Twitter, or Facebook!
4. Ruffles Cheddar & Sour Cream
3. Zapp's Cajun Crawtators
2. Bob's Texas Style, Original
1. Zapp's Hotter 'n Hot Jalapeño
