Healthy Potato Chips: Love Them or Hate Them?

Potato chips are one of my guilty pleasure foods. With their crispy, salty goodness, I absolutely love them! What I don't love, however, are healthy potato chips that are baked or popped. I just don't see their point. If I'm going to eat potato chips, I want to enjoy the good stuff. I'd rather eat real chips less often than something that simply doesn't taste good, but is still processed. How do you feel about them?

I love potatoes. I love crispy. I'll eat anything that falls into that category.

i love popchips, but i don't really consider them a direct replacement of chips...however, i am also in the crowd that likes baked lays better than most regular potato chips

I haven't tried the popchips but I do love baked lays, I actually like the texture of the baked lays more than I do the regular chips! Weird right? :shrug:

I love them, but they still don't replace a regular potato chip.

I haven't tried Pop Chips yet, but I love the idea of a healthy chip! Baked Lay's, the BBQ ones, are my favorite healthy chip.

I don't eat chips much, but I think I'd like PopChips because they aren't really like a "light" version of fullfat chips.

I love those veggie chips you get from Trader Joe's, if they count. I love cheese popchips too; I got a small bag of it from a college fair but can never find any grocery that sells it! And I mean cheese in particular. Very weird.

The flavor is strong. Maybe it's too salty for me.

I haven't tried any "healthy" chips but if they taste like cardboard, I'll stick to a small portion of regular chips.

I eat potato chips so rarely that when I do, they'd better be the real full-fat, full-salt kind. After all, the potato itself is just a bland delivery device for the oil & salt.

I don't really care for baked chips either and was very unhappy with the texture of baked chips- until i found a much better alternative. Lays Light Orignal Potato Chips. These are amazing! They taste exactly like the real thing! These chips are crunchy and light and crispy just like a normal potato chip only ten times healthier for you. A serving is about 20 chips for 75 calories and no fat. Thats right no fat. Don't believe me? See for yourself here I promise you will love these. I buy them at my local Walmart

I love those PopChips (in the regular flavor), but I'm not as big on the Baked Lays. Perhaps it's because the PopChips are different enough from regular potato chips that I don't feel like they're "trying" for the same thing, whereas with the Baked Lays, they're replacements for regular chips, and therefore not as good to me.

I really like the 'healthy' chips. (Although come on, they're still chips, we all know they aren't really healthy!) For some reason, I've always loved stuff that tastes kind of like cardboard. Must be the carb lover in me!

I don't really eat chips (baked, popped, or fried), but I much prefer the taste of baked chips to regular chips.

Admittedly, I haven't tried PopChips yet, so I can't say for sure that I love those. But I do adore Baked Lays. I have since they came out - I like them better than most regular potato chips (though Kettle Chips are another story). Baked Lays taste kinda like Pringles, IMO. And I like Pringles :)
