If I buy a packet of chips, I tend to eat them all at once, however the last few I have bought were so salty, I could not.
I was very proud of myself the other night when I bought fish and chips, as I left some chips -something I rarely do -I go on and on eating even when I am so full -cannot resist chips, particularly hot ones of any kind.
The only packs I can ever eat completely are the ones in the Multi-packs which many people buy for school lunch treats! I think they are about 20 grams. When I was little you could actually buy this size pack everywhere,as well as the pack which today we consider small. They were the largest packs available and I remember my mum buying these and they would be shared among the family of 4 quite adequately!There were no 200gm ones at all back then!! I have never in my life eaten a whole 200gram pack of chips in one go!! A pack this size ,will easily last me for about 6 serves! I just twist them closed and put a tight twist-tie on the pack till I want some more!
HOT chips,I can eat in quite a decent serving,though,again I do not end up pigging out till I feel bloated.I have a small appetite and I really just hate that feeling more than almost anything,
The only time i eat them is while the Tour de France is on TV, & doesn’t finish until 2.15am,
My husband used to eat the Aldi ones all the time, but luckily he’s gone off them now, & has stopped buying them. I do love hot chips, but only when there hot. If I can’t finish a serving of them before they get cold, I leave them! When we were last on a 5 week cruise, we only ate the5 times, & you could have had them everyday! When I was in my early 20’s, I used to occasionally buy hot chips & eat them between 2 slices of buttered bread, from the canteen where I worked. Yum!
Now when we have packet chips, I weigh out the same amount for the both of us. We only have them if we're both watching something on tv very late at night, so that's not very often, as I like to go to bed at midnight, & my husband goes to bed after midnight & reads for a couple of hours, or watches Youtube on my laptop.
Anything savoury or salty is my vice - I LOVE chips (and cheese) so will readily forego anything sweet to indulge in anything salty.
My favourite flavours would have to be lime and black pepper and cheese and onion (although the cheese and onion does tend to repeat on my for a couple of days after). This could be due to the amount I've just eaten ... I will quite happily eat an entire packet myself (and we're talking huge packets).
For small packets of chips (those individual ones) I eat all of it!
But for big packets of chips I usually spread it out over a few days. It's just too much and becomes too salty if the whole packet is eaten all by myself! If I'm having a party of with a few friends then I would share the big packet and we would eat it all in one sitting!
