4. You're just craving vinegar
Bragg apple cider vinegar. Start using it very day. Teaspoon in a glass of water, is one way to take it, but you can do it more than once a day. Your body is acidified and the vinegar, tho' an acid, will help your body alkalize.

Plus, those things are 'artificially flavored' whatever that means. If it weren't for that, I'd be buying them and eating them too whenever I got a craving for crunchy'salty'greasy stuff, which happens.

16. I started taking this yesterday
after reading elswhere how good (organic) apple cider vinegar can help out with indigestion.

Well, for months now I've been eating Tums with little relief, and after taking a spoon of this before meals in water yesterday and today I am feeling much better.

Hope this is something that keeps helping so well!

:thumbsup:

17. Artificially flavored means they use fake vinegar
This is no shit. Fake vinegar.

I got hooked on Smiths Crisps salt and vinegar crisps when I was in Berlin. The British post exchange (called Naafi, for Navy-Army-Air Force Institute) contracted with a British church in Berlin to run their roach coach operation. Every day they'd come to the field station with a Volkswagen bus full of these little sandwiches made on brotchen, pastries, British tea, British sodas and crisps. I find British tea to be disgusting (they make it with milk, which I do not care for but the British people love it. My dislike of British tea only means that there is more for them.) but the pastries were excellent, the sodas were pretty good, the sandwiches were very good...but this is about crisps.

Smiths Crisps are flavoured with real vinegar and real sea salt. They have a delicate tang and a pleasantly salty flavour. Unfortunately, they also have Beef flavour. Frank Zappa was very right--Lord, have mercy on the people in England for the terrible food these people must eat.

Then I got sent to NCO school in Massachusetts. Sitting in the PX was a big bag of Lay's Salt and Vinegar Chips. This is real MI food, so I got one and went back to my room with it. After four years of the excellent Smiths crisps, the Lay's were a definite shock. Imagine taking the battery out of your car, removing the caps and dumping it into a bag of potato chips.

Turns out that most of the chip makers in the US use "sodium diacetate" which is a powdered vinegar substitute. They can load it into the same machine that flavors their other chips. It also makes the chips taste awful.

Buy a bag of Cape Cod Salt and Vinegar Chips, which are made with real vinegar, and you will never eat "artificially flavored" S&Vs again.

8. Salt and vinegar kettle chips cure painful canker sores in the mouth
Probably due to the astringent and antibacterial qualities of the vinegar and salt. Works better than just about anything else. And they're yummy. Try it sometime.

9. Would you mind looking at the bag..
And telling me where they are made.. I'm curious if they have plants all over the country or if they all are made in Oregon.

15. Ow my tongue!
I've done that with the salt and vinegar Kettle Chips. The chips are extra thick and SHARP. Gives me what my family refers to as Capn Crunch mouth. Ouch but it's so yummy you can't resist.

18. What's always fun
is watching people who have never eaten them before. I've seen people grab a handful, stuff them in their mouth and start gasping, choking and reaching for the nearest drink..

19. I could easily do that if
I let myself get started on them. To avoid that, I just pretend they don't exist. <sigh>

21. Love 'em. My kids love them too.
If I let them, they will eat them until their lips are blanched.

I prefer the thin Lays variety to the think kettle chip type.
