Barb inspired me
Barb wrote a post on the evils of MSG. I agree. However, I'm too much of a hedonist to give it up - yet.
We don't have aisles of Lays at our supermarkets, but I am thrilled to say that Lays are available. (They were imported from South Africa.) But I bet you can't get this flavor - at least in North America!
After I ate the pack, I read the fine print and discovered that there is no MSG! But my friend Amy told me that another ingredient, maltodextrin, is just another name for MSG. (Apparently MSG has lots of names, just like the devil.)
Update: a doctor friend, John, assured me that maltodextrin has absolutely no relationship to MSG.
