Potato Chips

Lime and Black Pepper. Honey Soy Chicken. Mustard and Honey. Sweet Chilli and Sour Cream.

Those are some of the flavours in the Red Rock Deli Chips range. I told myself that I was going to stick to my No Salt Corn Chips (in moderation) and not get into any of the other chips but, I caved. How could I resist trying all those interesting flavours? And now that I have gone onto the chips, I dying to get a pack of my old favourites, Salt and Vinegar.

Usually I get a drink of cold water or brush my teeth to stop me from eating any more but I must be low on self restraint at the moment because I polished off an entire pack by myself this afternoon. I think the only way is to not walk down that aisle in the supermarkets. And keep reminding myself "A minute on the lips, forever on the hips". I'll just keep repeating that.....

Its not just about weight anyway. I was reading the 'nutrient' listing while chomping on them and under fats, it has saturated, trans, monounsaturated AND polyunsaturated. How unhealthy is that?! I'd better make the Mustard and Honey pack my very last.

Salt and Vinegar will forever be the best flavour.

I have to admit, honey and mustard does sound nice. Brannigan's used to make beef and mustard flavour crips, which were to die for.

I guess I'm getting pretty old, but I remember when you just got one kind of potato chips - salty, greasy, and yummy - regardless of who made them. Now they're available in every imaginable flavor. I'm like noisms...the salt and vinegar chips are the absolute best. At least once a week I go through a whole bag while I sit at my desk in the office and feel my fanny getting wider. If only someone would invent a low-fat, low-cholesterol, low-calorie chip that could still taste yummy, I'd be a happy man!

I'm really not much on flavored chips. However, I do like the salt and vinegar chips and the Krunchers (brand) mesquite chips.

Salt & vinegar is my all-time favorite!

You need to replenish the fat before moving back to Palembang. :-P

Dill Pickle is the best

It wouldn't be funny if I was pregnant now seeing that Richard is all the way over in Palembang!

I'm surprised that you all like the Salt & Vinegar. In our household, I can have the hold pack to myself because nobody else will touch it.

I hope you all had a pack of them after reading that post. You can think about the consequences later :)
