Impulse Shopper

Sometimes.......I...get...the.......MUNCHIES!

So I pulled into the nearby Costco and bought a bag of chips.

I don't even remember the last time I bought potato chips, but there I was, with an Industrial, Combat, Clan size bag of:
Kettle Brand Sweet Onion Potato Chips which, it turns out, are superb potato chips.

Got back to the truck and munched and munched and munched until I noticed everything tasted like paper, then I quit.

Then I read the label. The Nutrition Facts part of the label. The part of the label that says a serving is 150 calories.
The part that reads; Serving Size 1 oz (28g/about 13 chips)

Thirteen chips!

Now..............................I remember why I stopped eating potato chips.

I've had an odd hankering for Cheetos lately. I don't even really like Cheetos, so I've been able to resist. Maybe I'm pregnant.

lol. I had a craving for those chocolate covered pretzels and bought a bag today. At almost the whole thing before I bothered to look at the back. 8 of them are 130 calories... Not as bad as 13 chips being 150 but still a shocker considering how I've been watching what I eat.

I've cut A LOT of snack foods because of the amount of sugar in them. It's insane! People aren't supposed to eat much more than 100 grams of sugar a day and in the pretzel snack alone I had about 50. I don't count fruits in my sugar count since I don't eat them near as often as I should. (a pear has 15g if you were curious)

At least I can pronounce 90% of the ingredients in them tho.

If you remember the recent news story about the couple arrested for assaulting each other with Cheetohs, you know they have a dual purpose as snack food and a defensive weapon!

I bought a good sized can of cashew nuts once on a month-long stay in Puerto Rico. Then I read the label, and found that 9 of them added up to about 150 calories. It took me the rest of the month to eat them at 9/day.

It's my belief that raw fruits are a net improvement in one's diet even if one has maxed out one's intake of calories and sugar. I would never count the calories/sugar/whatever found in any raw fruit. I've never heard of someone who shouldn't have eaten that apple every day or the 3 oranges per day or whatever...

IMO, potato chips that are cut from real potatoes, i.e. not processed like pringles, aren't all that bad for you... provided you have one of the flavors that is just condiments, herbs or spices and isn't full of sugar and crap (BBQ is a bad one usually) Especially now they are usually cooked in high omega 3 oils with no transfats. The starches in them aren't quiiite so high a glycemic load as a sugary snack or fruit, there is a modicum of fibre, and you may notice that they have more vitamin C in than most canned fruit or vegetables, this is because the frying heats them rapidly leaving no time for enzymes to break vitamins down.

None of this applies to corn chips, cheezy poofs, etc.
