Potato Chips

They’re actually sweet.  Well they’re just a little sweet.  They have a really funny mouth feel.  They’re not at all like regular potato chips.  While the first crunch is similar, the subsequent bites have a smoothness to them.  It’s strange.  The other thing that separates these from normal potato chips is the absence of a salty taste in the mouth.  The label bears this out listing only 50mg of sodium per one ounce serving.

The really bad thing about these chips is, I like them.  I could eat the whole 7 ounce bag now.  The problem with that is, at 160 calories per ounce and 7 ounces in the bag, that’s 1120 calories per bag or around 140 minutes (2 hours and 20 minutes) of hard peddling on my exercise bike.  Can anyone recommend a good 2 hour and 20 minute movie on Netflix?

Price $1.99 (7 ounce bag)

Calories 160 per ounce (28g)

Garlic Rice Noodle Soup Bowl – Trader Joe’s – Food Review


A mild almost sweetish broth with some unobtrusive rice noodles makes for a quick and inexpensive lunch. The only problem is the 1340 mg of sodium (salt) per bowl.  But still, not bad for 99 cents.
