National Corn Chip Day

29 Jan


Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”



January 29th is mandated as National Corn Chip Day! Corn chips are right up my alley if you know what I mean. Who can turn down a good chip? Can you believe that 50 years ago (way before this journalists time), few Americans even knew what corn chips were? That’s amazing to me. Today, we can’t imagine life without those tasty little morsels. They were first marketed in 1961 and have been going strong since.

So, in honor of today being National Corn Chip Day – go out and eat some chips… with salsa… with dip… plain… with a friend… yeah, I know the pig is going to get his share!  I think I even heard his humans saying they were going to put corn chips in their chili for dinner tonight.  Now *that* does sound lip smacking good!

    Happy Corn Chip Day, Rocky! My momma said chips are infected with calories, so I have to celebrate in theory today :o(

      Oh I understand. Tell your mom she can throw her share of the chips outside. I’m sure my kin across the pond would absolutely love some – R

      I’m with my friend. This cold is the pits! Wake me when it’s spring. Until then, I’ll camp out in my bedroom watching television and eating corn chips 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
