I bought Trader Joe's "Potato Trio" (potato chips). The Nutrition Facts box states it has no saturated fats and no sodium.

Is it healthy?

Potato Trio Potato Chips
$1.99 a Bag!
No Salt! No Kidding!
Trader Joe’s Potato Trio Potato Chips are made
with three distinctive potato varieties: red bliss, blue
and Yukon gold. Each brings its own unique flavor to
the mix, and the vacuum frying process used to cook
the potatoes results in chips so loaded with the big
bold flavors of the potatoes themselves, we decided to
leave them naked. Naked of salt, that is. We haven’t
added any. A quick glance at the nutrition panel on
the bag tells the whole story – 0mg of sodium. OMG.
We’re selling each five ounce bag for $1.99, a great
value for these unique, kosher certified chips.

@Setanta,
Yeah, me too. That's why I don't buy them very often.

1 serving = 130 cals and 6gms fat
1 bag = 650 cals and 30gms fat

no thanks

well, actually, I'd love them while I was eating them. It's afterwards that I'd rather not deal with.

@gollum,
Healthy? Depends who you ask. Deadly? Depends who you ask.

Keep in mind a recent study found that potatoes will make you heavier than you ever dreamed possible, so if weight gain is your goal then by all means scarf those suckers down.

Here's a related thread posted by BumbleBeeBoogie just the other day.

www.able2know.org/topic/173740-1 called "Study links potatoes... to weight gain"
it says that even the simple boiled potato can cause greater weight gain than a sugary drink or an extra helping of red meat.

Potato chips are pretty much dehydrated potatoes. Wonder what that 1 ounce serving weighs when it's fully rehydrated.

I get LAYS when they're on sale; last two bags were $3.99. Buy one, get one free. I try to have 11 or less chips at each sitting during the eve. I read recently that potato chips are one of the worst snacks; but I'm addicted.

@gollum,
I think there is no guarantee of packed food so better you have it homemade.

@cicerone imposter,
I consider them a serious toxin. Once in a while, I will eat them anyway. Actually, no worse than corn tortilla chips.

I sure wish there were something edible to go with a good dip. I once tried celery, which is why I included the word 'edible.'

I confess that for all my posting about how I eat healthy foods I am addicted to potato chips. If any are in the house, some of them are in my mouth, like little insects, crawling in of their own volition, even against my will. Sometimes I want to spray them with Raid.

@edgarblythe,
Exactly! Someone asked me how many I eat at a sitting. I had to be honest. "How big is the bag?" I asked.
