I am a sucker for salty foods. I especially love potato chips.
My favorite is plain, unexceptional, salted ripple chips. My family each had a favorite as well- all trying to be differentiated from one another.
My son likes ketchup.
My youngest daughter prefers salt and vinegar or lightly salted.
My oldest daughter enjoys sour cream and onion.
My wife enjoys dill pickle.
Sometimes I pick up a large bag for each member of the family. Usually I just get a jumbo bag of salted chips and force my family to eat those. Okay, force isn’t the right word- they each the chips willingly.
For most of winter, we were eating a bowl of chips every night. Which was a bit much, so we went a few weeks without eating any. My wife wanted to only eat them on a Friday or Saturday from now on. But last night, I busted out favorite flavors for everyone. Not gonna lie, after eating a few chips, I felt unsatisfied. The fresh grapes we’ve been having lately seemed better.
Maybe it’s me getting older and my body telling me to eat better. But I think I won’t be buying chips as much anymore.
