Sometimes a Little Salty But Then Again I Prefer Salty to Sweet

Each time I go to Quiznos and purchase a sandwich combo, these are the chips that I select.  There are a lot more fiberous than regular chips and a lot less sharp testing than Frito's.  I usually get the chedder flavor but now have been turned on to the onion flavored ones (note: I have not found these yet at Quiznos). 

What I like most about these chips are that they are more filling than regular chips and I guess I am getting close to the RDA for fiber with one of these babies.  I wish that some of the other fast food chains offered them as an alternative (sometimes I find them at Subways) as I highly prefer these chips to fries.

What did you think of this review?

I use to hate these, but now I dig 'em. Tasty & healthier than potato chips!

Although still a far cry from healthy, it's nice to know this is a healthier alternative when it comes to tasty snacks readily available.

I used to like them a lot because I got them with sandwiches in Quiznos. I find them a little too salty.

I like Sun Chips for its rippled and crunchy feeling. It's not too salty and feel less fattening. Still, it's no health food!
