Because their "Veggie crisps" contain no actual vegetables. It's not like I actually thought there were veggies in them but, still, the bastards shouldn't sell something named after something which isn't even on the ingredient list.

Well, unless you consider the veggie term to be deserved due to "contains 1% or less spinach powder, tomato powder, and turmeric". Potato starch, corn meal, salt, and vegitable oil (canola, safflower, and sunflower oil) seem to be the main ingredients.

52.9% of the calories are from saturated fat. Yep, sounds like veggies to me.

Potatoes are vegetables. :)

And of course most of the calories in a crisp come from the fat they are fried in!

If you want something healthy, don't get something deep fried.

Potatoes are vegetables. :)

Botanically, yes
Nutritionally, well, not exactly
:p
Wheat and rice would be vegetables too, under that respect

If potatoes are veggies can I count French Fries as one of my daily servings of vegetables? :p

I read the thread title too fast and found myself wondering what anyone could have against tacos.

I saw a Poison Arrow Frog, and lots of other small and brightly-coloured frogs in the reptile house at the zoo last week. They were cool.

I don't think they were made out of vegetables but the colours were very crisp.
