Default Exactly what is a "dire potato chip shortage"?

http://www.foxnews.com/food-drink/20...ng-for-14.html


So Japan has a shortage of pertater chips and some bags are selling for $14 each. If potato chips were in short supply around here, I simply wouldn't care and wouldn't miss them even if I did want to buy some.


Shortages of staples like rice, potatoes, and onions I can understand getting upset about, but not junk food.


Tell me, are you panic stricken or feeling threatened by a the specter of a potato chip shortage?

When times are 'good' people buy drink, chips, junk food, etc., when times are 'bad' people buy drink, chips, junk food......I should have invested in those things rather than the blue 'chips' I did.........
No, I wouldnt miss them calling my name.

I'm still trying to find "salt free" potato chips. I know, what's the point but you actually get used to them. I think there really is a shortage of them.

I remember being quite upset when the store next to my office stopped selling HOHOs. I was grief stricken for days.

When I make chips, I either "no salt" them or very lightly salt them. Making them myself, allows me to make them EXACTLY the way I like them.

ONE average sized potato will make a whole bag of chips...

Potato chips are one of those things that I have occasionally, and when I do, I want "the real thing", not some reconstituted paste. I want full fat, full flavor, and best texture. I remember Lays as being a good brand. Ruffles were really good. Maybe they still are. I don't know if they make that anymore.

Depending on how they look, I will buy white or red potatoes and cut them across the largest side. I don't cut chips but about 1/4 to 3/8" thick rounds and season them with Mrs. Dash Original and a pinch of salt substitute (potassium chloride) and bake them. I like them better then chips.
