Hungry Girl Today: 3.13.09

Tomorrow is National Potato Chip Day! We're rattling off our favorite chips

(and giving you some dips), so you'll be prepared!

Just Bitten!

Here are some BREAKOUT chips you may not be familiar with...

Cape Cod 40% Reduced Fat Potato Chips

PER SERVING (1 oz., about 23 chips): 130 calories, 6g fat, 110mg sodium,

18g carbs, 1g fiber, <1g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 4*

Through a crazy combination of their standard kettle-cooking process and

something called "flash-baking," the Cape Cod folks have created perfect-

tasting reduced-fat chips. AND said chips come in 100-calorie packs.

Somebody needs to give these people a medal! Click here to find the closest

bag to you (or here to get some without leaving your computer). The 100-cal

packs are hard to find but worth the search.

Baked rice & corn crisps... these are really good and fun. Plus, they come in

Zesty Guacamole flavor. Guilt-free guac-flavored chips?! Sign us up. There's

also a Cheesy Nacho flavor, but we like the guacamole one better!

22g carbs, 0 - <1g fiber, 0 - 1g sugars, 2 - 3g protein -- POINTS® value 3 - 4*

These things can't decide what kind of snack they are. Popcorn? Tortillas?

Corn chips? Guess they're a little of each! Bad name, nice taste, good

texture. They come in fun flavors, too -- Sea Salt, Zesty Ranch, and Nacho

Cheese. Click here to order online.

These brick-oven-baked snacks may not be billed as "chips," but they're

chips alright. They come in Classic, Garlic, and Tomato Basil. There's cheese

baked into each triangle and, yes, they actually do taste like pizza. So if you

like your pizza cold and crunchy, click to order.

Michael Season's Natural Gourmet Baked Multigrain Chips

Do you have a thing for SunChips? If so, you'll PASS OUT when you taste

these. They have less fat and fewer calories than SunChips, and they taste

INSANELY fantastic. Slightly sweet... very addictive... AHHHHHHHHHHH!

sodium, 20g carbs, 1g fiber, 0 - 2g sugars, 1 - 2g protein -- POINTS® value


These are our go-to snack when we want some potato chips but DON'T want

all the grease and fat that typically goes along with 'em. They come in a

bunch of flavors (we're obsessed with Barbeque). Check here to see where

you can find them or here to just order some online. And click here for a buy-

one-get-one-free coupon -- hurry, it expires 3/15/09!

Oooh, our favorite corn chip swap-out. They're SO much lower in fat than

regular tortilla chips, yet they still give you a nice crunch. Good going, GG!

And while these are the perfect plain tortilla chip swap, there are a bajillion

other flavors to choose from, as well. Click here to track 'em down.

sodium, 21g carbs, 2g fiber, 0 - 1g sugars, 2 - 3g protein -- POINTS® value


These are sturdy, slightly thick, and completely delicious. They're actually

nothing like any baked chips you know. In Lightly Salted, Hickory Honey

Barbeque, Aged White Cheddar, and new Sea Salt & Vinegar, they taste just

like REGULAR potato chips... and good ones, too. Careful not to down the

whole bag. BTW, the Lightly Salted ones come in 100-calorie packs. Oooh,

and click here for a coupon!
