Which came first potato chips or sliced bread?
Potato chips, but nobody knew this because sliced bread was the greatest invention since...well, anyway the reason nobody knew much about potato chips is because in the beginning there were no potato chips just a potato chip. This never really caught on and it wasn't until Lay's discovered what the problem was and rectified it through mass production, because nobody can eat just one.

What culture is the baked potato from?
There seems no definitive answer as to when the first potato was baked. However the earliest known potatoes were found in Peru and Chile, dating back to 500 B.C. Though at the time of the Explorer Historian Pedro de Cieza de Leon the Peruvians used them dried, in stews. The earliest mention of baked potato is by an American woman who lived in the early part of the twentieth century. Sorry

What was the first potato chip company?
Katie Speck Wicks invented the chip in an accident in 1853 and the Saratoga Chip was first made. It wasn't her brother as is often said. Later Herman Lay (of Lay's Potato Chips) popularized the product. The assertions that potato chips were an aphrodisiac his drove his sales. Of course, he didn't actually say that they were but he didn't say otherwise, either.

How are potato chips made?
First they wash them, then they dry them, they peel the potato, then slice the potato and fry or bake them, then they salt. They were actually made by accident. Someone was making something with potatoes and they cut them too thin! And when they came out of the oven, they were nice and crisp. So..... The End! - Riley Hughes Age 11 Ohio

What is the most eaten snack food?
Without having done research (this answer can/should be improved with facts), I'd have to guess that in the U.S. it's either popcorn, because it's generic, inexpensive and sold in massive quantities in movie theaters, or potato chips because there are so many brands and flavors competing for the market space. ...and it turns out that I'm wrong. According to the study I found (link below), kids actually snack on fresh fruit more than anything else. As for adults, the first 4 are gum (not really a food), chocolate candy, fresh fruit and...potato chips. Answer: Potato chips
