National Corn Chip Day

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

National Corn Chip Day

When : Always January 29th

National Corn Chip Day celebrates the Corn Chip. Fifty years ago, few Americans knew what Corn Chips were. Today, most American can not imagine life without this tasty, crunchy holder of salsa, cheese and (mostly) Mexican dips. Its even sprinkled atop salads, making salads even more crunchy.

On National Corn Chip Day, enjoy eating one of your favorite snacks. And, take our Corn Chip corn chips for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks today! I don't know about you. But, I will find that easy to do.

Did You Know? Fritos Corn Chips were first marketed in 1961.
Remember the political incorrect "Frito Bandito"?

Origin of National Corn Chip Day:
Who created this day and when remains a crunchy question.

There is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a "National" day, which requires an act of congress.

This Day in History January 29
Baseball's American League is founded (1900)

    I don't like Salsa so I never have corn chips around...... But they are good when I have had them.

  Yes, I remember the "Frito Bandito" very (!) well. I need to be held up by him more often. These days I notice my thirst after eating corn chips . They are now an occasional treat. But I plan on indulging with chips and salsa this coming Sunday.

    I love corn chips. I don't eat them that often, but when I do, I really enjoy them, especially with salsa or bean dip. Thanks for the trivia!
