Pop Chips...

*I was not compensated for this post. I did receive some awesome freebies, and am writing this partially as a thank you*

So, back in the day when I was employed (ugh, it feels so long ago already), we had this little shop in the lobby of our building. It was really not bad, and actually a great way to accidentally spend way too much money each week.

I am not a sweet tooth, but I love salty snacks. I was regularly tempted by the bags of "Dirty" Kettle Chips, lost will power, craved the salty snack when work got stressful, you do the math. And at 220 calories a bag, I felt my bum slowly expanding to better fill my desk chair.  I'd noticed these funny looking chips on the other side called PopChips. But they were a good 30 cents more, and the bag looked smaller.  Long story short, I bought it one day... and almost every day after that!

I can't really tell you the details of the product. I know that they are all natural, gluten-free and "popped" instead of baked or fried. I know the little bag has 100 calories, and the big bag have 360. And I know that when I can't resist my cravings, I can cannonball the big bag, and feel WAY less guilty than when I would cannonball a bag of Cheddar and Sour Cream Baked Ruffles at over 1,000 calories per big bag!

I'm quite simply obsessed with the BBQ flavor. Seriously, the combo they made is perfect. Just a little kick, not sweet. The chip itself is light and crunchy at the same time. Amazing.   No lie, I've already convinced multiple people to try these, and got my local grocery store to start carrying them. Just because I love 'em.

So, shortly before the wedding, in the midst of all that drama, I joked that the "Crunch is Calling" truck is nothing, they need a truck that brings me PopChips. Then, I tweeted @popchips and said, I need a PopChips delivery, moving my wedding 3 hours away with 12 days before the event, and stress eating!

I did not actually expect a PopChips delivery.   But!  They responded and said they'd send me some!  It took a little while (have you seen them tweet? Their social media/marketing team must be crazy busy!)  but today, there came a knock on the door, and a nice girl my age was standing there with this:

I can not lie... you know all my stress. This girl just made my week!!!  So... you should go get some PopChips (I know Target or CVS have them!)  and I will do my best to not eat alllll these little bags in one sitting : )
