When it comes to satisfying our snack cravings, few treats are as irresistible as corn chips.

With their enticing crunch and mouthwatering flavors, these delectable snacks have become a favorite for people of all ages.

But what exactly are corn chips, and what makes them so irresistible.

The Origins of Corn Chips

The story of corn chips dates back to the early 1940s when a man named Elmer Doolin discovered a tasty fried snack while traveling in San Antonio, Texas.

The snack, known as “fritos” in Spanish, was made from corn masa dough and deep-fried to perfection.

Doolin was so enamored by the taste that he purchased the recipe and the manufacturing equipment to produce these crispy delights.

He then founded the Frito Company, which later merged with H.W. Lay & Company to become the renowned Frito-Lay, Inc.
