    ‘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.
  • Potato chip trail leads to suspected burglar

    Washington [PA] police followed a potato chip trail to arrest the suspect in a burglary early Thursday at a fast-food restaurant, where several bags of the snack were stolen. The trail led to Washington High School, where city police found and arrested Benjamin J. Sickles in the 2:23 a.m. break-in at a Subway at 217 Jefferson Ave., court records show. Police accuse Sickles, 21, of 70 W. Katherine Ave., of breaking three panes of glass in a door to enter the restaurant and make an unsuccessful attempt to open the cash register. He then allegedly threw cups at the register...

    Original link: http://youtu.be/qDF1Mi3z4mI Just when you thought it was safe to grab some munchies in the cupboard, a new study warns of cancer in cans and bags—in cans of Pringles and in bags of a myriad of other potato chips. This disturbing truth about an all-time favorite snack may be forcing food manufacturers to change their processing methods. But can the changes really make a difference? Researchers find that potato chips, among other processed foods, are loaded with the cancer causing chemical, acrylamide (uh-kril-uh-mahyd). The substance forms when carbohydrate-rich foods are cooked at very high temperatures. Some of the worst...

    Furious Muslims have heavily criticised Walkers crisps after it emerged that certain varieties of the manufacturer's products contain trace elements of alcohol. Some crisp types use minute amounts of alcohol as a chemical agent to extract certain flavours. The report in Asian newspaper Eastern Eye, highlights concerns raised by shopkeeper Besharat Rehman, who owns a halal supermarket in Bradford, West Yorkshire. Mr Rehman told the paper: "A customer informed us that Sensations Thai Sweet Chilli and Doritos Chilli Heat Wave are not on Walkers' alcohol-free list. Our suppliers were unaware of this. "Even if it is a trace amount of...

    Obesity is more dangerous than smoking and will dramatically shorten the lives of millions, a landmark study has found. While smoking reduces life by an average of ten years, the research says being seriously overweight can cut life expectancy by as much as 13 years. The Foresight report, written by 250 leading scientists, says Britain's obesity crisis is so severe that it would take at least 30 years to reverse. If current trends continue, by 2050 about 60 per cent of men, 50 per cent of women and 25 per cent of children in the UK will be clinically obese...

One of the corporation's store managers thinks he looks like Osama bin Laden -- and won't let him come near her store. Oscar Brufani delivers potato chips in Buenos Aires -- and he looks a lot like Osama bin Laden.

    MIAMI -- Miami-Dade police say a man stuck a potato on the barrel of a gun, believing the spud would act as a silencer and muffle the shooting of a woman. Police say Shane Thompson carved a hole in a potato with a spoon, stuck his gun inside and threatened to shoot the mother of his child. Thompson reportedly told her that no one would hear the shot, because of the potato's silencing qualities. Police say he never fired the tater-tipped gun, but instead hit the woman several times. Thompson has been charged with false imprisonment, aggravated assault and battery....

    An Ohio company has embedded silicon chips in two of its employees - the first known case in which US workers have been “tagged” electronically as a way of identifying them. CityWatcher.com, a private video surveillance company, said it was testing the technology as a way of controlling access to a room where it holds security video footage for government agencies and the police. Embedding slivers of silicon in workers is likely to add to the controversy over RFID technology, widely seen as one of the next big growth industries. RFID chips – inexpensive radio transmitters that give off a...

    A consumer group is demanding that Frito-Lay put warning labels on chips with the fat substitute olestra or face a lawsuit by a Massachusetts woman who says she got stomach cramps and had to use the bathroom quickly after eating the snacks. The Center for Science in the Public Interest said Wednesday that 30-year-old Lori Perlow of Braintree, Mass., would sue Frito-Lay under a consumer-friendly deceptive-advertising law in the Bay State. Frito-Lay, a division of PepsiCo Inc., said warning labels are not needed for its Light lines of potato and corn chips. "It's an extremely safe product, well-tested," said Frito-Lay...

    Snacks yer lot, Gina By JEROME STARKEY A WOMAN nearly died after eating nothing but CRISPS for three years. Gina Gough, 22, was rushed to hospital with severe stomach pains after scoffing 15 packets a DAY. She suffered jaundice and her weight had ballooned from 9st to 14st. Doctors first thought she had picked up the highly infectious liver disease hepatitis and sealed her in an isolation ward. But they later discovered her condition was a result of an addiction to high-fat, chemical-rich potato snacks. Gina, a nursery nurse, from Cannock, Staffs, needed four-and-a-half hours of emergency surgery to remove...

    By With the July 4 holiday approaching, our thoughts naturally turned to barbecues, hot dogs and chips. Lots of chips. Crunch these numbers: The Irving plant employs 640 workers and is open almost 'round the clock. On average, 600,000 pounds of raw materials are processed per eight-hour shift. A shipment of 46,000 pounds of raw potatoes lasts only 2 ½ hours. In the United States alone, 55 million Lay's potato chips are produced each hour. That's 13 million bags a day – about 3.4 billion bags a year. (And that doesn't even include the other well-known favorites, such as Doritos,...

    12/13/04 Dear Friends, It is no surprise that the Republicans are sore winners. They have spent the better part of the past month beating their chests, threatening to send to Siberia any Republican who doesn’t toe the line (poor Arlen Specter), and promising everything short of martial law if the Democrats don’t do what they are told. What’s worse is to watch the pathetic sight of the DLC (the conservative, pro-corporate group of Democrats) apologizing for being Democrats and promising to “purge” the party of the likes of, well, all of US! Their comments are so hilarious and really not...
