Seriously? Deep Fried Green Beans?

Rob, BMI's fitness director, picked them up from me from a local supermarket.

According the the package they're called, "Mixed Vegetable Chips" and ingredients include sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, green beens, taro, non-hydrogenated canola oil, dextrin and salt.

I took the photo with the gum beside it to provide some perspective as to how small the container actually is.

Care to venture a guess as to the calorie content?

Would you be surprised if I told you that little container has just a hair fewer calories than a large supermarket bag of potato chips?

Having tasted them, if I'm going to spend the calories, I'll take the chips.

I wonder how many people out there buy them to be, "healthier"

(The label below - it's not for the whole container, it's for 100g. According to the top of the container, the net weight is 222g for 999 calories)
