Saratoga is all that and a box of chips! For those who aren’t aware, the potato chip was invented here in Saratoga Springs, NY over 150 years ago, and Saratoga Specialties company offers the original recipe of the ‘Saratoga Chip’ in their original packaging — little snack boxes! (more on this later)
And now Mayor Scott Johnson has declared August 24, “Saratoga Specialties Original Saratoga Chip Day!”
August 24, is the 158th anniversary of Crum’s unintentional invention of the potato chip, and what could be more significant than that fateful day when fork could no longer meet potato?
In recent years, the Saratoga Specialties Company has reintroduced the Moon Brand Original Saratoga Chips. These throwback, crispy goodies are packaged in an identical replication of the the Moon’s Lake House “take-out” box and sold nationwide as well as being available at many area venues, the latest of these being City Hall on Wednesday where the first 100 people to show up will get a free box of chips! (Box of chips still just sounds wrong, doesn’t it?)
Have you ever tasted the popular Saratoga Chips? What do you think of them?
