After reading this thread, I went out and bought a big bag of chips and finished it. So much for cutting junk food from my diet. :lol:

I still cheat with cheese. But bacon, chips, fries, fast food burgers, junk food; it has all been exiled from my diet. No, stupid me, I look forward to apples. I won't tell the Doc about the apples; he'll just say I can't have them. And don't tell 'im I dip apple slices in honey. Oooh he'd be on me like a fly on sh*t. Nightmares. 8O
I'm afraid I'm heading down this road too. At one time I could eat anything and remain thin and healthy. But then things changed in the last ten years. I eat pretty healthy food most of the time now but I've been cutting out more "junk" bit by bit to include pipe smoking. My blood pressure is just short of hypertension (which makes me pre-hypertension). This developed in the last couple of years and runs in my dads family and starts around late 30s and early 40s. I'll end up on BP medication by the time I'm 40 but in the meantime I'm just trying to live as healthy a life that I can. I'm going to have to start ordering decaf coffee next. Sucks getting older.
Already? Wow.
It's not all bad I still drink scotch periodically and I do enjoy my pipes.
You won't like BP meds at all. You can PM me if you want to know why.
Much better to start cutting back early and avoid that as long as you can. But I've recently been thinking my Doc is lying about lifestyle stuff. My weight is down and my BP isn't. That usually gets him going on other things he'd like me to give up. But I bet him that giving up the pipe won't make any difference either. In fact when he even approaches that topic I usually comment that medicine can't qualify as a science. I've told him that I'm willing to trial giving up anything for 3 months. But if he's wrong then I get it back and he has to go running with me for three months. This is how you kill your Doctor.

Grippo Potato Chip Co. Inc., Cincinnati, OH

Grippo's Bar-B-Q - Grippo's are scrumptious chips, crispy but with that soft and yielding tenderness of the classic, American white potato chip. The BBQ seasoning is richly sweet and spicy.

Pipers Crisp Co.'s Black Pepper & Sea Salt — These chips … ahem … crisps have everything. Thin, but not fainting. Fine potato taste. Subtle seasoning, delicate with fruity black pepper. A chip for all seasons.

I've seen a lot of wacky threads on pipe forums, but this one takes the chip (ouch)!

What's so fancy about russet chips? I don't believe I've ever seen them in the store. Do they have a meatier flavor or texture?

Herr's Fire Roasted Sweet Corn — Marcelled chips with a very convincing buttered sweet-corn flavoring. Is that a good thing? Perhaps. Both bizarre and compelling, the seasonal nature of this offering helps to magnify this dialectic.
