Did you know that January 29 is National Corn Chip Day? Of course you did!
The origin of corn chips dates back to 1932. The story goes that C.E. “Elmer” Doolin bought a bag of fried corn chips and enjoyed them so much he pawned his mother’s wedding ring (with her permission, one assumes…) to purchase the manufacturer and the recipe. He started selling them from his car and now the company he founded is the largest manufacturer of corn chips in the USA.
