‘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.

That looks stomach churning.

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

Time is suggesting “there otta be a law”. Surely, with so many pages of law and regulations, someone thought to make such snacks illegal.

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

Some idiot at some office Winter Solstice party will be seen dipping them in guacamole dip and choking them down.

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.
