I hate that there are 300 calories in a little snack bag of potato chips... I LOVE potato chips but they are just wrotten for you. I might as well eat a stick of salted butter.

just a rant... I feel better. kinda...

try reduced fat cape cod chips - there's no chemicals, just less oil in the frying process.. i know they're 3 pts so that's probably around 150 cals!

Don't do subjects like this. It's really rude. It has nothing to do with the text.

Above poster: Did you expect a Halloween joke? I kind of did.

i think the OP meant "Booo" to show dislike . . sort of how you boo someone offstage if they suck?

OP here, sorry to be so "rude" to the PT community here and put a subject that I thought fit my posting perfectly. Please accept my appoligies for inconveniencing you so greatly and making you click on a posing that was about potato chips when you thought it was something better.

hungry women who want potato chips can get bitchy... can't we?

Me again, I feel the need to post a holloween joke here so that everyone that does click on this not as disappointed as the person that thought I was rude. Plus trhis covers two birds with one stone. now the title fits. Booo on you for being so snappy and calling me rude.

Do zombies eat potato chips with their fingers?
No, they eat the fingers separately...

305 here: i found nothing rude about your title, personally! i realized it was not about halloween within mili-seconds of reading your post. and i agree with you-i love the salt & vinegar chips, but ooooh! the calories! the one who thought your were so rude might identify with this joke:

Why do mummies have trouble keeping friends?
They're so wrapped up in themselves...

My grocery store sells very small packs of chips from the popular brands - Lays, Cheetos, Doritos, etc., for 25 cents each, and each pack has somewhere between 50 and 100 calories. Maybe your store has this too? Sure, it's not many chips, but maybe it'd help them be a tasty treat with just a few bites. Just a suggestion!

chips are my favorite, and I was SOOOOO excited to find that Ruffles now makes fat free chips with only 75 calories per one ounce serving!!! I keep a food scale right in my kitchen so I measure everything. I can't tell you how GOOD they are. I know they're bound to be loaded with chemicals, maybe even Olestra, but I DON'T care!!!! They're much better than the baked Lays I've been having all summer, at 110 calories a serving. Mmmmm

Try the mini quacker soy chips - you can eat 18 for 110 cals. And they are better than BBQ chips.

If you

If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all. Why are people SO mean that they have to "discipline" someone for posting a thought. Live and let live. You do your thing; write what you want to write, and let others do the same. Did it make you feel better to tell her what to post or not post? I hope so! You are so smart to be able to decide for this whole community what people want to read or not read! Wow. We're so humbled to be in your presence.
