Bite of the Week - Lay's Lightly Salted Potato Chips

We all know that Mom loves coffee ice cream, but what most people don't know is that Mom is also a fanatic about Lay's Potato Chips. That big yellow bag of crunchy crisps never made it through the night after a grocery shopping trip, but since we're all trying to cut back on salt and calories, we decided to try the Lightly Salted variety instead. At first, Mom wasn't happy about the change. However, after eating a handful, she quickly changed her mind.
THE VERDICT: Fantastic! There is very little difference between the lightly salted and the regular Lay's. They are not as overwhelmingly salty and greasy as the original brand, and with only five ingredients, the taste is always fresh and natural. We certainly "can't eat just one" of these babies. At least with this bag of chips, we know we are getting 50% less sodium and 100% taste. You should definitely make the switch to Lay's Lightly Salted. We hope to see them being sold in smaller snack sizes soon. Mom wishes that she had some right now (but what else is new).
