Bangalore: No matter what we do, we always prefer a path which is free from mistakes. Even though we know that mistakes are a part-and-parcel of our lives, yet we try our best, not to commit mistakes.

But, has anyone ever thought, even a mistake can bring millions to them or a mistakenly done mistake can ever worth millions? The answer will be ‘no’ in some of the cases.

As reported by ‘My Bank Tracker’, there are some mistakes that have become extremely popular around the world and also have made millions.  

1. Potato Chip

Potato is also the highest consumed vegetable and potato chips are indeed one of the most enjoyed snacks around the globe. While enjoying a movie, enjoying television, hanging around with friends, potato chips adds more delight. But has anyone ever wondered how potato chips came into existence?

Well, potato chips are the result of a serious mistake by Chef George Crum.

Once, a customer ordered some fries for himself but each time he was served the fries, he sent them back into the kitchen. According to him, the fries were too thick and were not crispy enough. After a score of times, when the chef was not able to resist this, he sliced the potatoes, paper thin and soaked them in oils. Upon the addition of extra salt, the potato slices were sent to the customer.

Surprisingly, the customer liked the slices and potato chips were born.
