Have you ever looked at the nutritional information on the side of a bag of chips? 150 calories, 11 grams of fat… FOR 10 CHIPS!!!! Can anyone here truly stop at 10 chips, especially when lounging in front of a 2-hour movie?
Well, for the health-conscious geeks among you, Icelandic designer Hafsteinn Júlíusson has come up with the perfect solution, the 0-calorie, paper-based chip. Named “Slim Chip” for obvious reasons, the no-fat snack is made out of edible, non-toxic paper and comes in three varieties: peppermint, blueberry and sweet potato. And as far as taste is concerned, the designer puts it best: “It’s like eating tasty air.”
Since Slim Chips are only a concept for now, you’ll have to excuse me as I go soak a piece of letter-sized paper in some barbecue sauce. Got to find an alternative solution while Mr. Júlíusson commercializes his idea, right?
