Pop Pop Pop… popchips

Last summer I found something amazing at Target. It was a brand of chips I had never seen before. These chips weren’t fried, they weren’t even baked, but they were popped! What were they called you ask? Why, popchips of course!


I loved them immediately. One serving of these delicious chips only have 120 calories and 4 grams of fat. Basically, an entire bag has approximately the same calorie and fat content as one candy bar.


Shortly thereafter, I began ordering popchips by the case from I loved this snack so much that I would go around and tell my friends and family members that they needed to try popchips too. One handful and they were hooked.

These days, three of my sisters, my brother-in-law and my dad are all ordering popchips by the case from  Here are some pictures I took from around the office today.






There are seven different flavors: original, barbecue, cheddar, sour cream and onion, sea salt and vinegar, salt and pepper, and parmesan garlic. (Barbecue is my favorite.) To find a retailer near you that carries popchips visit You can also order them directly from their online store or at Amazon.

This blog entry is making me hungry. I think it’s time for some popchips!

Hello 2010!

It’s a new year. But it’s not just a new year, it’s a new decade. It’s a time for fresh starts, new beginnings, hope for the future and of course some New Year’s Resolutions!

Now most people tend to set unrealistic goals, and because of that, give up on their resolutions by mid-February. I’m not going to to do that though. I intend to pace myself with a nice set of goals that I really feel I have a good chance of keeping.

In 2010 I resolve to:

Continue not smoking. That’s right, I have never smoked in my life. Do I feel tempted to do so? Not at all. Thus, this goal is a perfect New Year’s resolution.

Continue enjoying my recliner. My recliner is something special. It reclines very far. It’s very comfortable. I can sit in it for hours on end and my butt doesn’t even complain!

Watch more TV. I’m paying $135 a month for cable. But between Netflix, Facebook, my computers, Wii, PS3 and texting my friends, there just doesn’t seem to be enough time to watch TV!

Eat cookies. I love cookies. I intend to eat many in 2010! Are you going to eat cookies in 2010? If not, you’re a weirdo and I’m not sure that I’m comfortable being around you.

Eat a carrot. It will be tough, but I think I can do it.

See a squirrel scampering about during the summer time. I might even wave and say, “Hi squirrel!”

Listen to music. Hey, I’m listening to music right now. That means I’ve already kept this resolution. I am awesome!

Practice making the letter Z in cursive. That’s a tough one, especially if it’s a capital Z.

Place 50 orders at I placed 42 in 2009. Here’s an interesting tidbit; 2002 was the first year I ordered from Amazon. I had 4 orders that year.

Eat PopChips every month this year. Mmmm… PopChips.

Wow, making this list of resolutions was a lot of hard work. I think I will go reward myself with cookies… and PopChips… Mmmm.
