Well, here we are in the month of February. That means that 2023 is rolling right along, and it’s time to make the most of it. And because this is the time of Leo and you’re most likely in the process of making plans for Valentine’s Day, we understand that other celebrations that are occurring during the shortest month of the year might be the furthest thing from your mind. Well, the one we’re discussing today requires no planning, expensive gifts, or making reservations that require hours of waiting. And what’s more, it’s ten days after Valentine’s, and not beforehand. That’s right, on February 24th, we observe National Tortilla Chip Day, and we want you to come to Bogey’s Sports Pub to celebrate!
Some Crunchy Facts About Tortilla Chips
Like many other food staples that we consume on a regular basis, we don’t always take the time to appreciate how tortilla chips came to be and why they’ve achieved immense popularity over the years. Here are some fun facts about tortilla chips that you can really sink your teeth into.
Taste not Waste
In the 1940s, Rebecca Webb Carranza decided to use the discarded tortillas from the automated workstation at her job. The result is a low-calorie chip that is accompanied by various toppings to craft a limitless amount of snacks. Her contributions are recognized in 1994, and she was given the “golden tortilla” award for her efforts in the food industry.
Popularity & Recognition
Just nine years after Carranza’s award, the State of Texas announces that it’s made the tortilla chip its’ official snack. This was followed by unmatched popularity in 2010, with the tortilla chip officially outselling hamburgers and hot dog buns as America’s favorite snack.
