Really? Eww? Or Mmmm?

You know what I haven’t had for about a bazillion years? Pringles. Because why? Because they have 150 calories in 16 chips. That’s … lemme see, now … around 9 1/2 calories per chip (original flavor). Would it be worth it? It just might be. Especially if what the Wall Street Journal reports is true, and the calorie count is roughly the same.


Check out the new seasonal offering: Okay, nasty or nice? At first, you go, Ewwwww — potatoes and sugar! But potato candy is deLISH! And I love sweet-and-salty combinations. So…. Right?

If I can find these babies at JayC, you just KNOW Imma check ’em out! How about you?

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: What is your character’s favorite snack?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      I know, right? And, just to be fair, I have to get one of each, don’t I?

    To me, salt content (plus hydrogenateds) is the barrier to snacks. I just don’t like salty food, unless it’s just salty enough, and hydrogenateds scare me.

    My vampire ladies, of course, like cute guy with a chaser of bourbon.

      Jane, snack food does seem to be high in poison, doesn’t it? Potato chips of all kinds are my weakness. One of my weaknesses. One of my many weaknesses. Cute guys and bourbon are pretty good, too, but I think I’d pass them both to get to a bowl of potato chips.
