    Why is it impossible to eat only a couple of them?

    Any ideas?

    Dunno, don't eat em unless they're in something. Now hand rubbed Tater Tits "bet ya can't eat just one" by Carlin's Own, nope, I usually switch off.

    LOL. I finally stopped, but my fingertips are dehydrated from the salt.

    I used to be that way with potato(e) chips. Would sit down with a 3 lb bag, watch a move and eat until the sides of my mouth were cracked and raw.

    It's the work of prying those little husks open, and then achieving the instant solitary award. There is a feeling of accomplishment each time.

    Every once in a while, I get such a craving for something salty. I used to do chips, but I now go with salted nuts.

    But, I must confess - my lips are a bit sore, too, from the salt. Those suckers are addictive. Man.

    I stopped before hitting rock bottom, but maybe someone will organize an intervention for me in the future. ;) I admit that I have no control. LOL.

    It's the new ads they're running, they've hidden subliminal messages in them. "Eat till you puke"; "You are not in control, do not attempt to adjust the dial"; "Just keep on eaaatttting themmmmm".

    I heard somewhere that if you're craving salt, your potassium levels are low. Eat a banana.
