Things You Didn’t Know About Things You Know Well


By David Hoffman


In 1863, George Crum, the head chef at Moon’s Lake House in Saratoga Springs, New York, was insulted when hotel guest Cornelius Vanderbilt, the well-known railroad tycoon, sent back his dish of French fries, demanding that they be thinner and fried longer. In anger, Crum decided to teach the commodore a lesson and shaved off paper-thin slices of potatoes, threw them intp a tub of ice water, let them soak, and dropped them into a vat of boiling grease. When they came out curled and fried crisp, he sprindkled salt on them and sent the potatoes back to the Vanderbilt table. Crum was bowled over when the guest sent back their compliments and requested another order. Soon , “Saratoga chips” (later to become simple “potato chips”) were a featured item on the hotel’s menu.

I-0037745.jpgSaratoga Springs, NY – Saratoga Chips, America’s first kettle chip, originally introduced in 1853, continues its commitment to providing healthy, all-natural snacks. All six Saratoga Chip flavors will now be made using Mountain Pure Himalayan pink salt, a mineral and energy-rich iron alternative to traditional salt.


Recognized for their rich, bold flavor, Saratoga Chips are certified non-GMO, 100% all natural, gluten free, allergen free with no trans fats, no cholesterol and no preservatives plus they are certified Kosher. The addition of Himalayan pink salt enhances the taste of all flavors of Saratoga Chips, while providing 84 beneficial minerals including calcium, magnesium, and potassium. This premium salt is found in the deep, protected veins of the Himalayan Mountain range, untouched by pollutants and impurities for more than 250 million years. To maintain this purity, Saratoga Chips works with certified eco-friendly sources that extract and grind the pink salt.


Himalayan salt, as described by Dr. Oz, differs from table salt in that it is pure. He states that it has, “…no contaminants, no anti-caking agent, it’s all natural, and has no pollutants . . . and because it has potassium, it can reduce blood pressure.” These minerals are commonly known to create an electrolyte balance in the body, increase hydration, and balance pH levels. Some cultures use Himalayan salt as a natural medicine and therapeutic cure, as it’s credited with detoxifying the body and transferring the toxins from healthy cells into the bloodstream and out of the system.


“We know people love our chips, but are also concerned about their health,” said Jim Schneider, President and Managing Partner of Saratoga Chips. “By switching to Mountain Pure Pink Himalayan salt in all of our flavors, you can satisfy your craving for the great taste of Saratoga Chips and enjoy the health benefits that Himalayan salt provides.”

Schneider continues, “Saratoga Chips is committed to bringing our customers an amazing snack experience. We will continue be creative in our flavor assortment and innovative with our selection of all-natural ingredients to deliver a superior product. Saratoga Chips is excited for people to savor our Mountain Pure Himalayan salt chips with family and friends this summer and enjoy our chips as a new tradition for years to come.”
