I Love Lay’s Potato Chips

Pop Chips, can’t say that I will.  OK, so here’s the scoop.  Recently I heard a fitness expert who I respect and admire, therefore will not be named; recommend Pop Chips.  Many of you who have been reading my blogs for a while realize that I love potato chips as much as the next gal.  Actually my two favorite vices might be potato chips and ice cream.  Sometimes together in fact, just kidding.

I love potato chips, I always have but I mean real potato chips.  When this fitness expert recommended Pop Chips I immediately investigated.  As many of you know, I use myself as a guinea pig for you.  Pop Chips are marketed as being healthy, all natural, non-fried chips.  Well you can imagine my excitement.

Alas I must be candid.  I purchased a couple of varieties, ate a small bag on Saturday and on Sunday morning I had a stuffy nose, scratchy throat and of course I was sneezing.  This is a usual reaction of mine when a food item is not 100% clean and natural.  I must admit I am a bit confused, perhaps it has something to do with the dehydrated potatoes, I am really not quite certain.  Since I am not sure why I had this reaction the next day, here is my thought.  I think I’ll stick to Lay’s.  Yeah, you heard me, I said Lay’s.  Why?  Because I recommend the real thing.  It’s called moderation my friends.  So take it from me, if you have a craving, have a handful of the real thing and walk away.  In fact, when you’re thinking about snacking please oh please think about the real thing.  Don’t misunderstand, I am certainly not advocating eating fried food all the time, but if you love potato chips as much as I; choose one day a week and give in to your craving.  But remember, just a handful.

When you are thinking about snacking and decide you’re going to be a little naughty, just exercise moderation.  Allow me to remind you that there are many options of the real thing.  Some of my favorites are:

  • Lay’s original potato chips (not baked)
  • Terra Chips (all types)
  • Blue potato chips (one of my personal favorites)
  • Tostitos corn chips
  • …and many more

Obviously you get the idea.  A little snacking is not going to harm you, so take my advice, reach for the real thing but take a handful and walk away from the bag.  Sorry Pop Chips, I really thought I was going to recommend you.  I did have high hopes.
