Finally, our potato chips of gone organic! Potato chips are an important part of our menu, since we eat them pretty much whenever we have sandwiches.
Up until now, our potato chips hadn’t gone organic since 1) they’re suprisingly hard to find, and 2) the ones that I have found have been VERY expensive!
Thanks to Google Express, I found some organic potato chips online for a reasonable price. And they’re delivered to my front door! How awesome is that?
Also, I want to try an experiment. . . I’m curious. . .
Would we eat FEWER potato chips in a month if they were organic?
Potato chips are one of those foods that you just want to eat more and more and more of. . . I’m wondering if it’s that junk food phenomenon, where you crave more and more and never feel satieted– like with Oreo cookies you know?
We’ve been buying our potato chips from Aldi, since they have hands-down the best prices on chips! But these bad boys have now been eliminated from my Aldi Organic Food Checklist, and added to my Whole Foods (Google Express) Organic Food Checklist.
When I open one of these bad boys, it’s all I can do to keep us from gobbling up an entire bag at one meal!
So if we eat ORGANIC potato chips, will we eat less? I hope so, since the organic chip bags I bought are half the size of the non-organic chips we used to buy from Aldi. Also, these organic potato chips cost $.69 more than the Aldi brand non-organic potato chips. So yes, a huge price difference. But worth it to me, since the idea of eating conventionally grown potatoes is kind of scary- they are loaded with pesticides!
Just what brand are these organic potato chips via Google Express? They are actually a Whole Foods brand!
Yes, Whole Foods does actually have some affordable grocery options! I ordered the 365 Everyday Value (Whole Foods store brand) Organic Sea Salt Potato Chips and the same brand Organic Barbecue Potato Chips.
They cost $2.69 for a 5 oz. bag, and the Aldi potato chips we’ve been buying cost $1.99 for a 9.5 oz. bag. So clearly, a huge price difference. But if we eat HALF the amount we have been, the overall cost will be manageable.
Once again, experiment time. . . I’ll see how it goes. . . how many organic potato chips will we eat in a month. I’m not sure, but at least they’re all organic thanks to Google Express!
