A young boy named Oliver Baty has made an extraordinary find, uncovering what may very well be the world's longest chip. This impressive chip measured a staggering 10.3 inches (26.2cm) in length and was discovered when Oliver was helping his mother, Donna, prepare dinner at their home in Pegswood, Northumberland. It fell out of a bag of McCain frozen oven chips while Oliver was eagerly assisting his mother in the kitchen. This is prepared by SSP.

Oliver's father, Scott, who operates a mobile catering company, explained the surprising occurrence, stating, "Donna emptied a bag of chips into the air fryer when suddenly, this single chip stood up like a totem pole. It was so massive that Donna couldn't even close the fryer lid. Oliver swiftly grabbed the chip, rushed into the sitting room, and placed it on his shoulder. Much to our amazement, it was actually larger than his head."

As soon as Oliver laid eyes on the colossal chip, he exclaimed that it must be a potential world record. Intrigued, the family decided to measure its true length, thoroughly inspecting it to rule out any suspicions of multiple chips stuck together. The results were astonishing—measuring at 26.2cm long, the chip appeared to be a single, unbelievably lengthy piece. Scott expressed his astonishment, marveling at the size of the potato from which it must have originated. He playfully compared it to the shape of a rugby ball.

Desiring to validate their find, the Baty family conducted an online search for previous big chips and discovered that their remarkable specimen surpassed the lengths of others discovered in the past. While there were claims of an 18-inch chip, they suspected it was a fabrication. Eager for confirmation, the family promptly reached out to Guinness World Records in hopes of officially proclaiming their chip as an unrivaled accomplishment.

Oliver, currently enrolled in Year 5 at Newminster Middle School, made the decision not to consume his remarkable discovery. Instead, he has carefully preserved it in the freezer, stating, "I couldn't ever eat it. It's too precious." Now, the excitement continues to build as the family awaits verification from Guinness World Records, confident that their extraordinary chip will be recognized as an unparalleled triumph.
