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.

Yeah, that does seem strange. I just don’t see how that’s possible. Are you sure?

If Big M really cared about hungry kids, they’d do food stamps the same way they do WIC. Instead of loading money onto a debit card, they’d send out vouchers for “gallon of milk” and “pound of cheese”.

Popcorn and M&Ms. Good stuff. That and many delicacies are made of chocolate and sea salt. Some people just have pedestrian tastes and don’t get out much.

Nonsense. You want to indulge in such a product, go for it. They should not be available, however, to be purchased with your food stamp card.

Tell THAT to Wegmans grocery chain: chocolate-covered peanut butter-filled pretzel nuggets. Small jar costs more than a large jar of same sans chocolate, and NO, you can’t eat just one handful of the salty-sweet-crunchy goodness that it is.

Sugar and salt are basic to most confections and bakery items. Potatoes with chocolate would be the problem for me.

Oh you are so wrong. Salt and chocolate go GREAT together. Salt and sweet go GREAT together. It’s done, it’s done a lot, and the people who do it get fat because it tastes oh so good.

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

I dunno, the chocolate/caramel/sea salt craze has been going strong for around five years now. With the right chocolate, the sweet & salty mix is a winner.

Nothing new to the residents of southern Ohio; chocolate covered chips have been around during the holidays for several years now.
I can do without the chips, but we Buckeyes know Esther Price dark chocolates are the gold standard in chocolate candies. Godiva is second rate to those of us raise on Price’s chocolates.

Chocolate comes from a plant, therefore it is a vegetable and good for you. Moochell would be proud.
