Savoury search

One of those dreams that seems to have taken up the whole of my sleep time last night.
Just the one scene with myself and my wife involved in an endless search for crisps, or potato chips if you are in any other part of the World.

The search was fruitless as I woke whilst we were still looking, having walked miles without finding a single crumb.

Talking of crumbs, it was American, George Crum that inadvertently came up with the potato chip in 1853 in Saratoga Springs, New York.
The story goes that Crum's French Fries were sent back by a diner who didn't like the thickness of them. Crum to get back at the rejection, reportedly cut them ultra thin but the fussy diner loved them and the potato chip was born.
