Why We Love Potato Chips (And National Potato Chip Day)
A. We love fat
California researchers have discovered that receptors in our mouths, upon coming into contact with fat, like that from potato chips, triggers a powerful addiction-type mechanism in our guts. Just eating one potato chip is so hard. Simply eating one chip makes you want to continue eating more and more chips until the whole bag or plate is empty.
B. It’s a great meal for on-the-go
While some people love sitting down and taking their time to enjoy a snack, some just simply have a fast-paced lifestyle. For those people always on the go, potato chips is always a great idea. A can of Pringles or a bag of classic Lays are plenty good for a road trip, or a quick trip to work.
C. It’s simple
