First there were potato chips.
Then there were chocolate chips.
Now, Lay’s is introducing Chocolate Potato Chips.
Oh, the sheer joy. Or horror.
According to Lay’s, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, this is a limited time product that the company is introducing based on market research. This is a product millennial women want. And they shall get it! Indulgence is always better when sweet and savory meet. Never mind PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi’s promise to healthify the company’s product portfolio.
Let’s, out of curiosity, take a look at the nutrition on this thing. We have no expectations.
A serving is one ounce. But get this – because of the chocolate, it’s only 4 chips! Unless Lay’s sell these in 4 chip packs, we can’t imagine anyone having the willpower to stop at such a low number.
The serving of 4 chips has 160 calories, which is the same as regular Lay’s Classic and Lay’s Wavy chips. It has 9 grams of total fat, half of which are saturated (22% of the daily maximum recommended value). Sodium is relatively low, only 45mg (2% of the daily max). Sugar, which you don’t see much of in potato chips, clocks in at 3 teaspoons.
Would you try this product? Do you think it could become a regular snack in your repertoire?
