Today we are going to have a debate. Aren’t you so excited?
You know that icebreaker game where you share two truths and a lie? One of my truths is always that I have never eaten a flavored chip. The sight and smell of such salty snacks pretty much grosses me out.
However, there has been recent debate about the validity of this statement, especially, since getting pregnant, I can’t get enough these little guys:

Let the debate begin!
Topic: Jane Maynard has never eaten a flavored potato or corn chip.
Arguments in support of the main hypothesis:
- Jane has never eaten Doritos, BBQ potato chips, sour cream and onion nastiness, Cheetos or any other similar crispy snack with unnatural colors and/or flavors.
- Jane has never eaten Pringles, plain or flavored. Mashed potatoes have no business being made into chips.
- If a chip or corn chip has seasoned salt or pepper applied, this does not count as a flavored chip. Exhibit A: The picture above. Do those chips look flavored to you? I think not.
Arguments against the main hypothesis:
- Chips with seasoned salts count as flavored chips. Jane has in fact eaten the homemade potato chips at Tacone that are seasoned with a salty-sweet seasoning and corn chips at a Mexican restaurant in Phoenix with a similar seasoned salt applied.
- Jane is addicted to Kettle brand Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper krinkle potato chips. These delightfully spicy snacks are most certainly grouped into the flavored chip category.
Rebuttals: Not allowed (mostly because I can’t think of anything else to say on the matter).
So, what do you think? Can I still use this statement as one of the truths in the two truths and a lie game, or am I just living a lie?
For the record: No matter the result of this debate, I will never eat Cheetos! Or Doritos! You can’t make me!
