1. Do you shop locally?

2. How much shopping do you do online?

3. Do you antique, thrift shop, or go to flea markets or yard sales?

Tyrell's:                         Lays:

Protein-5.6                    1.5

Carbs-50                       14.0

Sugar-1.3                      

Fat-24.5                         9.5

Sat. Fat-2.8                    1.1

Fiber-5.2                         1.5

Sodium-less than 0.1      154

So I guess you mean you like them for the taste and not neccessarily for the nutrition

I don't know, I'm not sure I agree that it's not a normal thing but do you think the opposite could also not be a normal thing, always wanting to eat?

If you're speaking of the local grocer I think you're speaking of (one that's been significantly busier than the other recently?)--their whole food section has been a life saver for me w/the FA thing. Saves me the trip to Whole Foods--the only thing I can't get there is Tofurky pizza. But I can buy their pizza dough in the refridgerated case & some Daiya cheese shreds and make it myself. So NBD. ;)

Dude--we're talking about chips. Who gives a fig about their nutrition?

I don't really like chips, but occasionally DH comes home w/some artisanal vinegar and pepper chips that are delicious. But I can't tell you I've read the nutrition info on them. They're chips. They're crap nutritionally. I don't need to read the label to know that...

I'm a salty/savory over sweet type person....I find them and lots of othe types of chips in the local grocery store.  The stores that I go to have a really good selection of this type of product.  The organic/whole food section has grown over the years, lots of good choices.

The key phrase is "your opinion." It could be argued that living to eat isn't healthy or normal, either. Every doctor I know preaches moderation...

<<Good, in what way, taste or Nutrition as while they may be less in sodium, they are high in everything else:>>

I think this was to me?  Good as in taste as in quality ingredients.  I'm not putting chips out there as some kind of nutritious food or anything, they are chips, lol.   I would rather eat a chip like Tyrells than Lay's any old day, better quality = better taste to me.  As the saying goes, life is too short to eat bad food or drink bad wine/beer.

Oh, ok so you are going by taste and not actual Nutrition. Have you ever compared Lays to Tyrells?

<<They look similiar to the kettle chips I get from Costco. Not sure why I would go and order them from England (if that is what you actually do as I don't see anything on the site to order the chips).>>

I don't order them from England, they are in the local grocery store.  They are yummy, try them if you see them some time.

My son is the same as me--he has to be reminded to eat. Although he's better about it when he's going thru a growth spurt, which seems to be happening right now. DD never misses a meal. That one likes to eat. Come to think of it, while in appearance, the kids favor their same gendered parent, in personality, they favor the opposite. I can't remember where I was the other day that I was w/some of DS's peers and one of the girls said, "Wow--you talk and act just like him!" He's an unapologetic smarta$$ just like his mama. DD is a sweetheart, just like her daddy.
