So the title really.
I've got the day off work and I've eaten a full bag of those £1 grab bag sharing packets of crisps. (I've had no breakfast or lunch) I was just nibbling while reading.
My partner however thinks it's shocking I can eat a whole bag.
Would you be able to eat a whole bag? Aibu?

People at work are shocked at me coz I eat about 8 bags of the normal size ones whilst I'm there, to be fair though I'm pregnant and crisps are my craving x

It's only about 50gm of crisps isn't it? Not a lot at all.

If you were doing it everyday then that wouldn't be great. But as a one off, I hope you enjoyed!

What?! The grab bags are bigger but they aren't giant! Ridiculous.

Ooo I like to polish off those sharing bags of walkers Thai sweet chilli, now and then. Feel no guilt!

ALemonyPea Tue 30-May-17 13:18:42

I could easily do that. What crisps were they?

Your partner is being ridiculous, as long as you're not doing it all the time, a treat is fine.

How many grams?

I think it's a bit weird. Why not just eat proper food?

That's not a lot, I thought you were going to say a 200g bag which would still be no-one's business but your own.

I just opened a normal bag of walkers there was 11 crisps in in ELEVEN !!! so your grab bag was probably the right amount

They were walkers cheese and onion. 100gram packet. I haven't had crisps in ages definitely just a treat.

I felt greedy once he said that blush

I've eaten an entire sharing bag of crisps to myself before, as long as you're not doing it every day it's fine!

SquishedStrawberry - I do eat proper food regularly. Just felt like a packet of crisps,

I'm 7 years pregnant (last month - I'm round and heavy and tired) and have just eaten half a chocolate cake because I feel a bit sorry for myself today.

Because opening a packet is easy and full of salty goodness.

Crisps are proper food.

Whats the problem with crisps as long as your diet is balanced?

Sionella Tue 30-May-17 13:36:10

Well it depends on the crisps.

Kettle chips sea salt and balsamic vinegar? Bacon rashers? Goats cheese and chilli jam? YANBU.

Feet smelling cheese and onion or wee smelling roast chicken? YABVU!

100g is only 500 or so calories, you would have eaten more if you'd had breakfast and lunch

I'm the opposite to ew and woolly - could easily have done this pre-preg, but from first tri until now (6m on) I've gone right off crisps. One vaguely helpful symptom/side-effect, anyway!

yesnomaybeoh Tue 30-May-17 13:39:24

Sionella - unfortunately they were cheese and onion lol.

I now feel like eating another packet infront of his face. Just to prove I no longer feel guilty lol!!

WindyWednesday Tue 30-May-17 13:43:40

I could if it was the sharing bowl salt and vinegar ones that walkers make. They are much thicker and crunchier.

The reason I refuse to buy multipacks of crisps is because I could easily eat several packets in one sitting. I can resist cake, ice cream, biscuits, chocolate etc etc - but crisps are me downfall. Even reading this thread has got me craving a packet of Tayto! grin

I'm judging you on your crisp choice, the best big bag is flaming hot monster munch, try harder next time Op.
