It’s hard to imagine, but some of the most basic and obvious snack foods we eat actually had to be invented at some time.

The story behind potato chips is pretty funny because they were invented because of a prank:

Once there was a rich guy named Cornelius that didn’t like his french fries, so the chef got a little offended and came up with a plan.

Since it was really REALLY  rude to eat with your hands, the chef thought it would be a great joke to make food for Cornelius that he COULDN’T eat with a fork and knife and HAD to eat with his hands. He fried up a bunch of thin slices of potatoes and that’s how potato chips were born!

Did Cornelius like it? Or was he made? Check out how he reacted to his prank food:
