But seriously, that's like saying, "Drinking lard makes you prone to be fat!" It's ridiculous. And the bad thing is, this made front page news in my areas local newspaper!

Seeing as how drinking a can of soda every day would make you gain roughly 17 pounds annually, I'd say that chips are a minor concern at best, when it comes to fattening.

Chips are a good form of transportation. They help transport and deliver the salsa to my mouth.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

Salt and vinegar are my fave. Oh or pickle or jalapeno. In moderation of course.

I dunno. Gaining 2 pounds over the span of 4 years isn't exactly what I would consider fat.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">
