A potato chip (NAmE and AuE; often just chip) or crisp (BrE and IrE) is a thin slice of potato (or a thin deposit of potato paste) that has been deep fried, baked, or air fried until crunchy.
The earliest known recipe for something similar to today's potato chips is in William Kitchiner's book The Cook's Oracle published in 1817, which was a bestseller in the United Kingdom and the United States

Covered Bridge Potato Chips factory, our photo taken in 2022. 

However in March 2024 the plant just off the Trans-Canada Highway went up in flames, and by the next day, all that was left were the charred metal remains of the building and equipment.
No one was injured, but the plant alone employed about 120 people, and benefited local truckers and farmers in western New Brunswick. There are plans to rebuild.

They are well known for storm chips!
Prepare yourself for those snowy winter days with Creamy Dill, Homestyle Ketchup, Smokin' BBQ and Salt & Vinegar all in one bag.

All-dressed (French: assaisonnées or French: toute garnie is a potato chip flavour popular in Canada. It is described as the flavour as a mix of ketchup, barbecue sauce, sour cream and onion, and salt & vinegar.
The term 'all-dressed' and its French equivalent "toute garnie" originally applied to pizza, meaning roughly 'everything-on-it', deluxe, or 'the works'.

Lay's (known as Walkers in the United Kingdom and Ireland, Chipsy in Egypt, Poca in Vietnam, Tapuchips in Israel and Sabritas in Mexico) is the brand name for a number of potato chip varieties as well as the name of the company that founded the chip brand in 1932. Lay's chips has been marketed as a division of Frito-Lay, a company owned by PepsiCo since 1965.

My favourite in the UK, cheese and onion taste a lot like these cheesy garlic bread. And as an aside, the cheesy garlic bread won the contest Lays were running for new flavours.

  1. Chip sandwiches sound absurd to me, but someone near and dear likes them. It must be a British thing.

  3. I have never been fond of potato chips.

  4. I have the feeling that every sort of chip has been made now in the world. Thank you for sharing these with us!

  5. I LOVE chips, but only the plain variety!

  6. You have a thing for Lay's. Most I've never heard of before, I DO like how it shows how many places you have been and how you took photos of all things, potato chips.

  7. Miss my Taytos sooooo much. I wonder if you spotted the imitation Lays cheese and onion, they throw them on the market now and again and I stock up. Haven't seem them now in a couple of years. Great imitation of the Taytos. But your collection is par excellence!!

  8. ...I always thought that I photographed strange things, you have me beat!

  9. That is a collection!!
    Take care and best wishes.

  10. The variety is dizzying! I had no idea!
