I found these potatoe chips ( yeah I know, bad food/high cal...but seeing that my sweet tooth can no longer support the local economy,)....(Oh not that chips are a substitute not, but a treat every once ina while...)...anyhow, back to what I was saying, found these chips at Save-On in Burnaby, and wrote to the company...received a great response.
Another item to be added on to the safe list...


thanks for asking.
we only make potato chips in this facility.
we use non hydrogenated sunflower / Canola oil.
no peanut oil,
no cross contamination at our plant possible.
thank you for supporting a local BC company.
The potato farmers in the Fraser Valley appreciate it too.
Buy local first

Not to be promoting potato chips here :wink: , but old dutch makes lots of flavors that are allergy friendly. I'm pretty sure most are peanut/nut friendly, and lots are milk free and certified kosher. Our family has the largest selection of foods we can eat in the junk isle. Pop, potato chips, tortilla chips, pretzels, popcorn twists...you name it and there are safe choices. We do not eat chips very often, it is unfortunate that I have so many choices of foods that are unhealthy, but not many healthy prepackaged selections.

Don't feel bad about potato chips. If you added up all of the processed foods you ate in a month and compared it with the national average, I'm convinced you would still be below average!
Our diet is pretty healthy and the odd bag of chips is not going to do much harm. I actually worry that we don't have enough fat in our diet! :oops:

I too feel that we do not have enough sources of fat in our diet. My daughter will be 3 in march and is still on soy follow up formula, mostly for fat intake (it has more than regular soy beverages ), and partyly because she loves it and doesn't really like soy drinks.

the rest of us use so good omega, it has the most fat of the soy milks, and it has flax derived omega 3. I also like to add an avacado to my salads, they are a good source of healthy fats.

The odd time I sneak in some chips, but purely for the health benefits. :wink:
