While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Hut, hut, crunch! January 29 is National Corn Chip Day.
This Sunday, some of you might be sitting around a big TV watching men in shoulder pads and tight pants run around chasing an oblong ball.
At your gatherings, there will likely be any combination of dips - seven layer, guacamole, salsa, French onion, you name it. It's also very likely that when you eat those delicious dips, you’ll reach into a bowl of corn chips.
The über crunchy, über salty snacks are known for their distinctive roasted corn aroma and made by baking or frying cornmeal.
In 1932, C.E. Doolin bought a small business that manufactured corn chips and began to sell them from his Model T Ford in Texas. The most recognizable corn chip was born – the Frito.
Fritos, made by the FritoLay company, have since become the quintessential corn chip. Popularized by their dipping ability and the ever-delicious Frito pie, a bag of Fritos can be found at most couch gatherings - including Super Bowl 47.
It is?? I'll alert the media.
WOO-HOO! I'll celebrate it! Wish Frito (ahem) L@y would bring back the taco flavored Fritos. Those were awesome!
We love p0rnchips!
