Lays Manages to Make Potato Chips Even Worse For You by Smothering Them in Chocolate
TimeNewsFeed ^ | October 31, 2013 | Olivia B. Waxman

‘Tis the season to be gluttonous, so Frito-Lay is rolling out milk chocolate-covered “wavy” potato chips.

The limited-edition $3.49 5-ounce bags will be shipped to Target stores starting today and will be on sale throughout the holiday season, a Frito-Lay spokesperson tells TIME. If consumers like them, the company will evaluate whether to make them permanent.

While chocolate-covered pretzels are a familiar sight, USA Today also cites the trend of sweet and salty potato chip flavors that have been on the market like Kettle’s maple-bacon or sweet ‘n’ salty Bugles flavors, like caramel and chocolate peanut butter.

That looks stomach churning.

You don't mix salty with milky/creamy, or salty with sweet. It simply is not done.

It will be nice to hit both food groups (sweet and salty) in one shot. I call that balanced nutrition.

One of these years, I want to try the chocolate-covered bacon. I understand it’s delicious.

Lays was grandfathered in. But only through 2014, and then you’ll have to shop around for another chip.

I think the antioxidants should cover the preventative care requirement. The antidepressant activity of the chocolate will cover us for the mental health requirement. And then if we eat enough, we’ll have our birth control covered for sure.

It’s a winner!

Its not proper! No, not proper at all.

Do you put skittles in your chicken soup? Marshmallows in your sausages?

Flies in the face of the correct order of things.

Well, some of these types of laws have been on the books for some time. For instance, restaurants in Wisconsin must serve butter. Even the Kentucky Fried Chickem in Wisconsi serves butter rather than "Better Spread".

I think a little something was lost when the EU gutted Germany's beer purity laws to make way for Budweiser etc.

I had a chocolate covered potato chip last week. It was very good. It was from a candy store, wrapped in foil.

That doesn’t sound too good.

But, occasionally, I will use potato chips to dip into soft vanilla ice cream.

The combo of the sweet ice cream and salty potato chips makes for an interesting treat.

"combo"

When I was a teen, I used to occasionally eat hamburgers and vanilla ice cream together. It was not too different from eating a burger and a shake.

Paula Deen was right. Moochelle is a pig that wants the chilren to go to sleep hungry. One in Six chilren go to bed hungry since Barry took office. They are suffering quietly by spending money on loud advertising asking me to send money to FeedAmericadotcom. I would send money to them if the government wasn’t taking the money and spending it to buy APC’s for DHS.

Like Salted Caramel? Hamburger and Milkshake? Margaritas?

No, salt and sweet are like peas and carrots (there you go again). Two great tastes that taste great together.

Salted caramel and margaritas, no.

Hamburger and milkshake, yes -- but if the hamburger was put in the milkshake or the milkshake poured over the burger, it would be a definite no!
