History Chips have been likened to "edible microchips." They are grown in genetically-altered potatoes and are prepared like common French fries. Upon consumption, the History Chips grant their consumer historical information about Mobius. The more one eats, the more they learn. However, they are implied to be unhealthy if eaten in excessive amounts.
The History Chips were developed about 5000 A.D. on Mobius, where they were consumed by people in order to gain knowledge of the past. In that time, History Chips on Amy Rose's and Tekno the Canary's adventures were best sellers.
