Hugs..Yes, I think you're right, pretzel crisps. My fav chip is Pringles cheese chips. It will be awhile before I'll buy a can of those for I cannot leave them alone!!

Look at you eating ONE cookie!! When I grow up, I want to be like you and be able to only eat ONE cookie too!! LOL!! Menu looks good considering the season!!

Hugs...So, you had an Italian day yesterday!! Oh..Yum!! :)
All looks good and yummy!!

About pretzels vs potato chips, here's a comparison. Of course it depends on what type of chips you normally would buy though. Looks like pretzel chips are better except that they're very high in sodium. I don't know..pretzels are white flour, not good..and chips are potatoes..not the best choice either. I guess when you want some chips, just do the best you can and go from there.

I think I would go for sweet potato chips. Better nutrition, but not a huge amount better. Still, though. I like Sun Chips too.
