This week I ate some health food and it added silliness to the mystery. I tried Veggie Straws. Don't know if you've ever seen these, they are essentially potato chips flavored with different vegetables. They are still salty and deep fried but now they taste like tomato and spinach. What a great combination: The healthiness of deep fried potatoes, with the taste of spinach. That's like making a gas guzzling compact car, or a nine inch HDTV. I seriously wonder who approved the creation of such a treat.
What cracked me up even more was the writing all over the bag trying to make it sound healthy. Things like 'less fat than potato chips'. If you have to state that it has less fat than potato chips, that's starting with the bar really low. That's like a new computer coming out advertising that is has more disk space than a Tandy 1000. Not too impressive.
Let's suppose at this point I was still interested in eating a veggie straw, then I read the back: 'tastes great with your favorite dips." I would hope so. Anything should taste good if you smother it in creamy ranch dip. So what you're telling me is that this is healthier than Potato chips, tastes like spinach, and if I smother it in something that tastes good, it'll be yummy. Thanks Veggie Straws, I think I'll stick to Pringles.
