In a perfect world, everyone (kids included) would snack on carrots and kale chips. For those who do, hats off. And sadly, consumers are often at the mercy of the processed food industry

Imagine how miserable everyone would be if the only snacks were carrot and kale chips! UGH! These healthier-than-thou food purists remind me of the religious right who think sex should only be about procreation. You want to be a fanatic fine! But keep it to yourself!

people should eat whatever they want. as long as it's in moderation there is no harm. the idea of a chip made from kale sounds totally gross thank you.

It's SO easy to make your own popcorn at home, especially with a hot air popper! Apple sauce too... Why buy any of that chemical laden crapola. It's all psuedofood!! But I'll pass on the kale chips, thanks.
Tx Kelly!

Life would be shit if all we ate were carrots and kale chips. I'm aware of the unhealthiness of some of the foods I eat, and I honestly don't care. Life is not worth living if you don't have fun. I would rather die a few years earlier than eat that shit forever.

again, I have to say it's sad to see how manufacturers turn good ingredients into essentially poison. What a waste of good food.
