Quick Reference

Crisps—in full potato crisps—very thin slices of potato fried until they are crisp and curly, then usually given some distinctive flavouring and packaged up to be eaten cold, appeared on the scene in the 1920s (the first known printed record of them comes from 1929). American English-speakers call them potato chips.
