NEWS: Kettle Brand Reduced Fat Chips Will Make Me Feel Slightly Less Guilty About Eating An Entire Bag

Because I inhale Kettle Brand potato chips with a suction that is only bested by a Dyson vacuum cleaner, I tend to consume an entire 8-ounce bag in one couch potato-ing session. Of course, doing so makes it hard for me to keep my girlish figure. Fortunately for my girlish figure, Kettle Brand is releasing new line of reduced fat potato chips that come in some of their most popular flavors — Sea Salt, Sea Salt & Vinegar, and Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper.

The reduced fat potato chips will have 40 percent less fat than their regular counterparts. But, just like the regular versions of their chips they will contain non-GMO ingredients and contain no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, and no MSG.

To give you an idea of how different the reduced fat version is from the regular version:

A 1-ounce serving of Kettle Brand Reduced Fat Sea Salt chips has 130 calories, 6 grams of fat, 0.5 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 1 gram of polyunsaturated fat, 4.5 grams of monounsaturated fat, 160 milligrams of sodium, 19 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, and 2 grams of protein.

A serving of regular Kettle Brand Sea Salt chips has 150 calories, 9 grams of fat, 1 gram of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 1 gram of polyunsaturated fat, 7 grams of monounsaturated fat, 115 milligrams of sodium, 16 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, and 2 grams of protein.

Kettle Brand Reduced Fat Sea Salt potato chips are available now in 8-ounce bags and have a suggested retail price of $3.49. Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper and Sea Salt & Vinegar will be released in August.

    The only GMO food that is approved for human consumption in the United States is a GMO salmon.

    I hate when food producers pull this, like one of the orange juice people says “NO GMO ORANGES!” in big letters on the front, and on the back says “well, there’s no such thing as GMO oranges, but if there were, we wouldn’t use any.” (which led me to see if there were such things as GMO foods in the US, which there really aren’t, except for that one salmon.)

    But the hike of sodium is greater in the reduced fat! I’m curious on how the two the Salt n’ Vinegar compare—–since my single serving is usually the bag.

    It seems that when companies cut fat they always have to increase something else to compensate for flavour! Would be interested to taste how the 2 compare.
