hello and welcome to wednesday. and not just any wednesday.. it’s national potato chip day!

i was going to write a normal post with a giveaway at the end, but then i got distracted by a new website. and i proceeded to look at page after page after page. and then i laughed until i cried.

a few favorites?

this one:

and this one:

and we can’t leave out this one:

okay, okay, ONE MORE.

oh man.

if you go to that site, you WILL waste time. but you will laugh, so that’s like therapy, which isn’t wasted time. right? right.

so now, instead of posting actual content, how about a popchips giveaway? you know, in honor of national potato chip day!

image

i have been a fan of popchips for years. they aren’t baked, they aren’t fried.. they really are POPPED! to see how popchips are made, check out this video:

when you choose popchips over regular old fried potato chips, you are eliminating lots of calories and fat, but you are NOT eliminating taste. actually, i prefer popchips over any other chip and all the flavors are delicious.

popchips recently sent me a one month supply and i have fallen in love with their three new to me flavors: parmesan garlic, sweet potato, and chili lime.

image image image

the only one i haven’t yet tracked down is the jalapeño potato. can’t wait to find it!

my favorite way to eat popchips is paired with cottage cheese. i grew up eating lay’s potato chips dipped in either cottage cheese or sour cream, straight from the container. momma b and i would easily polish off a whole container of cottage cheese or sour cream, just sitting there, snacking the day away. this snack really takes me back to my childhood.

hmm.. thinking about it a bit more, i bet these would be amazing dipped in plain greek yogurt—which tastes just like sour cream! i am trying that next.

anyway, a few more fun facts about popchips:

  • each bag is only 100 calories
  • no oil is used in the popping process
  • the ingredients are all natural and there are zero preservatives
  • they are gluten free and kosher and most flavors are vegan
  • they are very low in sodium

i can’t rave about popchips enough. not only are they tasty, but the company is fabulous. they donated tons of their tasty chips to the great fundraising act to help raise money for susan’s cancer back in july. they are always friendly and interact with their fans. they are also a sponsor of blend retreat and we will be cramming the swag bags full of popchips in may!

okay, enough talk. giveaway time. popchips has offered one meals & moves reader to receive a one month supply of popchips!

to enter, leave a comment telling me what food/snack/meal reminds you of your childhood. bonus points if you tell the story behind why.. i am a sucker for memories.

oh yeah, and i will announce the winner on monday the 19th.

happy snacking!

When I was a kid me and my mom used to eat saltines crushed up in a glass of cold milk as a snack! I member seeing her do it, and she learned it from my grandfather who ate it as a staple as a kid..they were poor. It’s actually really kind of good and I have to say, it’s the strangest snack I think used to eat!

Ham, pickle, and cream cheese roll ups also made an appearance in our home pretty often growing up! Still love that one!

Chicken, cooked many ways reminds me of my childhood. My folks always raised their own chickens, so we had lots of fried chicken in the summer and baked or stewed in the winter, with a big pot of homemade noodles. Lots of impromtu picnics then, before relatives began to move away. Ummm—think I will take a chicken out of the freezer and fry that bad boy up tomorrow!!

Regular plain potato chips of brand. I used to sit and eat them at every family gathering with a big bowl of dip and my grandfather!

Ooh, the 19th is my bday, maybe it’ll bring me luck! Whenever I see those cans of spray cheese, it reminds me of my childhood. We always had those in my house when I was a kid, at least one or two varieties. My mom was a big junk food junkie. We ate it on crackers, either Sociables or maybe Triscuits (I can’t recall if we had those back then.) I would never buy that now, and not JUST because of the hard little cheese plug that forms between uses after the first time you eat it. Ew! :D

Ha, I’m glad I’m not alone! And thanks for the birthday wishes! (I know you’ll appreciate these geeky number-related things, since you and I share the same fave number: my bday month and day (3/19) add up to 22, and I turned 2×22 yesterday! :D)

Animal crackers – the kind in the little circus car box with the string handle! I would always have to get one when I went grocery shopping with my mom. I can remember walking out of the store still carrying the little box, and having to go back in to pay for them!
I’ve wanted to try popchips for a while. I don’t like regular potato chips because they’re so greasy. These sound perfect!

Soft serve ice cream reminds me of the awesome days of summer growing up. Hot and humid, the sun going down, bike rides, playing in the dirt, etc…so fun!

My mom used to make me princess lunches….which were not something royalty would eat at all. It consisted of Carl Buddings lunch meat rolled up, cheese slices cut into strips and other odds and ends out of the kitchen and put on a plate. I always asked for that. Kids are weird.

Sour cream and onion pringle sandwichs made with sharp cheddar cheese. Sounds really weird and I was super turned off to it at first, but its actually quite delicious. I have fond memories sharing this snack with my Pappy when I was younger

I think of my childhood, and I always think back on the snacks which I never buy anymore — but LOVED as a kid: Squeeze-its, Bugles, Gushers, Fruit-O’s, Crackers and cheese spread (with the little red “knife”), Lunchables, etc.

Oh man. HANDI SNACKS! loved that red knife.
