Fat-Free Spuds for Dieting ChowHounds...

Lisa Antinore | Mar 26, 1998 12:04 PM

I know, I know, true ChowHounds are not supposed to diet, but sometimes we get a bit carried away and need to shed a couple of pounds...

My best friend Paul is always counting fat calories (extemely annoying to eat with him....) and he unlike myself is a big chips fan. When I saw the recently released Fat-Free (made with Olestra) Lay's potato chips, I decided they'd be perfect for Mr.Svelte.

The crinkle cut plain and mesquite flavored regular ended up being so good that Paul made me swear throughout the evening that I hadn't put the real Lay's into the fat-free bag to sabotage him. I really hadn't. We both kept rubbing our fingers together, the shiny olestra a dead ringer for real potato chip grease...

If you're on a really strict fat-free regimen or have heart disease and can't bear to part with your chip cravings, give these a shot. They are suprisingly tasty. God knows what they'll discover the side effects of Olestra to be in a few years, but ignorance is bliss, so munch away guiltlessly while you can...

And neither of us suffered the much-discussed "anal-leakage"....... :)
