Yeah, you're right. There are three half-bags of chips going into the trash this week.

sort of like public politics sometimes, perhaps the competition on a grocery shelf dictates that you won't stand out, get noticed and bought, unless you go extreme?... this discussion seems to maybe hold true of store offerings being too sweet, too?

I use a mandoline, the slices are paper thin. Am still trying to perfect the sour cream and onion Lay's, these come close!

Oh, dearie me. I'm missing something here. If I have to work for a few hours to make potato chips, it sort of defeats the purpose.

That's why DH gets his hand slapped when he tries to grab a handful. Just do one potato.

Thank you. On my way to check it out.

BTW I am partial to Wise brand original chips, vinegar and salt and ruffled sour cream and onion chips.

Where do you get the sour cream and onion seasoning?

I used Kernal Seasons Popcorn seasoning. They have a bunch of other kinds too.

Supermarket bread products made with a lot of salt are one of the leading contributors to higher sodium levels in peoples diets today as sited by the US government.

My god...bread

Interesting point, Caslon. Growing up, we never had such things as snack chips in the house. Except...for the rare time when my parents had special cook-outs in the summer. And I did say rare, because they never occurred more than once or twice per summer.

As a result we 5 children didn't develop a taste/craving for chippy things. I had some Fritos at a friend's house last summer and I nearly choked. They were waaaaaay too salty for me. I routinely scrape the salt off pretzels before I eat them. In my case, I want the taste of the pretzel and not the taste of the salt.

We hardly ever have chips in the house and, last Christmas, I scoured the dollar stores for a tiny lunch-size bag of potato chips for my potato chip cookie recipe. I knew if I bought a regular-sized bag they'd just go stale. Plus I was horrified at the cost of a bag of potato chips. What!!! Good grief, they're only potatoes!
