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?

Yes, ITA RG but PKA was saying that they were of better quality and better cooking methods than the a mass marketed chip, like Lays.

Ok.

"I have discovered that better quality ingredients cooked in a quality manner,equals a better end product"

Do you have a link to this study? I like Lays but do try anything so I would be interested in seeing the difference.>>

No, as of yet my findings are unpublished, I will let you know when I have a publisher for my work on potato chips. 

So basically YOU think they have better quality ingredients cooked in a quality manner but there is no findings that they are any better then say, Lays? Can you please explain then why you wouldn't just say you like these chips better than a mass marketed chip, like Lays instead of claiming that they are a better quality chip cooked in a better quality manner.

That's my point. You eat them for taste, not nutrition. If you were eating purely for nutrition, you'd be eating homemade kale chips instead of potato chips...

On Wednesdays we wear pink.
