French Fry Diary 292: Baked Lay's Potato Crisps

What is most interesting about this product is that it doesn't actually say potato chips on the bag. The front of the bag pretty much just reads "Baked!" and then under that the Lay's logo and below that "original" to indicate the flavor.

On the back of the bag we learn they are called Baked! Lay's Original Potato Crisps. Now while crisps in the UK would indicate potato chips, but here in the US it means made from dried potatoes, like Pringles. And that also explains the bland taste of these cardboard reasons I really don't care for baked potato chips.

For the healthy conscious folks out there (who I have no idea why you're reading this blog, but I thank you) these start with all natural ingredients, have 80% less fat, no transfats, no MSG, no preservatives, and are gluten free.

They might be good for dipping but not for flavor. Not recommended, unless you have nothing else to munch.

First time visiting the site. Can't believe all the post. Just wanted to add that eating french fries doesn't have to be unhealthy. What if I told you you can have health french fries made with the T-Fal Acti Fry. Saw it on Dr. Oz. Only 1 table spoon of oil. That's it! And they taste great without all the fat.
