Slap chips go back a long way

We call them chips or even slap chips and Americans call them French fries though they are not French but Belgian. Historians say potatoes were being fried as early as 1680 in Belgium's Meuse Valley. Locals would eat small fried fish with their meals, but when the river was frozen they cut spuds lengthwise and fried them as a substitute. - funfacts.com.au; wikipedia.org; stim.com
