This is an ongoing work in progress, as I add to my potato chip photo collection!!!

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'.

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.
