Pringles

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Does anyone else find that after eating a few Pringles or Lay's Stacks that they feel sick to their stomach? This has happened to me a few times and I don't know why.

Oooooh you just reminded me - I have the little mini packs of Pringles in the cupboard! Woohoo!!

And no, I don't get that. Maybe it's too high in sodium for you?

The fat free ones will make me sick, maybe it's because they have olestra in them?

It could have very well been the sodium in them, as was suggest. Plus, if I'm not mistaken, they have MSG in them too - another form of sodium.

some of the ingredients in them might not agree with your stomach. that could be why they make you feel sick.

i don't normally feel sick after i eat them (unless i have more than i should) but then again my nutritional needs are different that most- i NEED a diet that has a good amount of sodium in it- it helps control my vertigo symptoms/ low blood pressure.

I've never had the fat-free ones with olestra... I'm not a fan of anal leakage (anyone know what I'm talking about)? Yah.. I don't think I'm going to eat any more of these.

I'd heard of that being a possible side effect many years ago when it was first being used in chips. Anymore I prefer crackers or dry cereal (like chex) if I want something crunchy to snack on.

Salts are a type of electrolyte, and being even slightly dehydrated can make low blood pressure worse.
Even though I know this I really do not like eating a lot of salty or processed foods they taste gross.

But it does say on the packet.. 'when you pop , you can't stop' and it is so true they are so addictive.

How many is a "few"? Pringles (unless you are getting sick from the spices) should be fine - they are not greasy like normal potato chips.

We are not "chip fans" - but do like plain Pringles. We rarely will eat potato chips - too greasy.

i think its like 10 chips or so. I love the 1/3 less fat ones. All the crunch of chips, but less fat and oil and tasty!!!!!

I looove the four cheese ones but they are so hard to find. I start to feel sick if I eat too many pringles, but I limit myself so that I don't feel like that.

Thats the first time I have ever heard someone else say this. This use to happen to me when I was younger, I would feel like I was going to vomit if I ate Lays or Fritos.

But I kept the faith and kept on eating them and now they dont make me feel sick.

My husband and I had this talk last night after fish and chips (both fried).

We eat pretty healthy and mostly whole foods (no corn syrup, artificial additives, modified, hydrogenated oils, etc.) so when we eat bad (processed foods, fried, soda, and the like), our bodies don't adjust as quickly and it doesn't make us feel good and does effect our stomach in a negative way.

However, you can build your tolerance for junk foods, in the same way our bodies are conditioned for the healthier stuff, they can be conditioned for the junk stuff so you don't feel sick or uneasy. I tend to believe it will catch up with your health sooner or later, some it never does, but some it will give diabetes and heart trouble.

hummmm...I don't know then. For some reason no matter how many times I tried it Arby's Market Fresh sandwich made me sick. Arby's was close to where I worked and easy to pick up. Even when I took most of the meat off and didn't get any sauce. Just something about it and me...

And I normally don't even like sour cream and onion chips except for the pringles.

I think the outrageous sodium levels in a lot of foods affect me -- I have to smuggle my own popcorn into the theater these days, because their oversalted popcorn makes my lower back (where the kidneys are) hurt for a day or so. And I love Pringle's Sour Cream & Onion and Salt & Vinegar chips, but I have to stick to just a few of them a day.

Interesting sidenote: a friend of mine met Mr. Pringle a few months ago! They met at a carshow or something, and it came up in conversation that this was the fellow who invented Pringles... and when the ad agency designed the logo character, they made it look just like him, with the center-parted hair and the mustache!

I wonder if he hangs around the snack aisles in grocery stores, hoping to be recognized...

Ooo, can't eat Pringles, after checking the ingredient list!
post #21 of 27
Oh, I just remembered. Has anyone tried the Pringles Selects yet? The sun dried tomato flavor is sooo good
But like regular pringles, high in sodium and I can't eat more than a few.

I don't get sick at all from eating Pringles. They are some of my favorite chips, especially when I have a can of Frito Lay Jalapeno and Cheddar Dip to go with them.

Why do you have to resist?!??! If you're not going to eat them, then send them my way!

Ooh actually... just watching a David Attenborough documentary and just looked back up at the tv and they're showing a nice close up of a stoat chomping on rabbit insides. Not so hungry anymore...

I don't want to feel sick after eating them... aw, heck I'm going to have a few more. And by the time they got to California they'd be stale.

Mmm.. rabbit guts!

Not me...and I asked Hobo, he says that Pringles don't bother his stomach either...but then, he's been known to eat just about anything.



P.S. Hobo Skimbleshanks says to tell everyone that stolen Pringles taste better than "hand out" ones
