I admit, I am a fan of the occasional corn chip, But I do try to eat healthy and watch my fat intake. It is funny how most corn chip brands now advertise “NO TRANS FATS.”  Hmm, since corn chips for the most part have not ever used trans fats, this is like putting a label on celery that says “NO TRANS FATS.” Saturated fat is still fat and for those watching their fat and oil intake, finding no fat chips can be a daunting task.

I used to be a fan of the Guiltless Gourmet Baked Corn Chips. However, over time I noticed they “reformulated” the chips and basically, added some oil to fatten the chips up and make them take “better.”  They once had 0 grams of fat and now a serving of 1 ounce of chips contains 3 grams of fat. And they are expensive, and no longer available at Whole  Foods Market from what I can tell.
