Are you a foodie? Then you have a special day to celebrate today. Celebrated on January 29 every year, the National Corn Chip Day is what would make all the corn chip lovers across the country pay tribute to the one of the wonderful delicacy – that is loved by people of all ages.
What started the National Corn Chip Day?
Well, seriously – we don’t know. The exact history, founder and when it was started is completely an unknown fact. But, the corn chips have been in existence since the 1930s. In fact, Fritos Corn Chip was perhaps the first ever and original corn chip that was sold in the 30s.
A delicacy that presumably has a Mexican origin has two people assigned as its “inventors”. Isador J. Filler has been believed to the person who thought of making the chips in the rectangular shape and marketing them as chips. He patented it in 1932. Then, Elmer Doolin was the one who came up with Frito Corn Chips and began making them in mass production.
The National Day dedicated to corn chips as the National Corn Chip Day came into being somewhere in 2002 andd has been one of the best events.
