I love potato chips. It's just the whole combination, the potato, the salt and the oil. I am fearless, I have real guts in admitting that in this day of "don't eat chips but if you have to. eat baked chips." OMG Have you ever tasted a baked potato chip? I bet you have in the name of "trying to shed a few pounds." Baked chips are the WORST ...........the very WORST." Yuck, spit it out.
Here is some rambling of a senile old broad. When I was a teenager we ate chips for snacks BUT the potato was sliced very thin, so thin you could see through it and scattered throughout the chip there were little bubbles of oil. Biting into one sent heavenly bursts of flavor throughout your mouth. But the best part, no one was fat. NO ONE. The fattest person I ever saw ( and he was a movie star) was Fatty Arbuckle and he would be considered the norm today. We ate what we wanted and never used the word, diet.
Why? Many reasons .......we never had processed food and no GMO's. (Bill Gates hadn't been born yet. No, I won't say it) No chemicals floating in the air we breath and no trans-fats. All this stuff makes you FAT.
The Kettle Chips (in top picture) are the best I can find (beside making my own).
Has anyone found a good tasting potato chip recently? Or have you given them up for good too, like a lot of people.
