Wine calories versus Bag of Chips calories


Hey how was all that food over the festive season? Mmm … my mouth sommer water again just thinking about it.

While rekindling those joyous times munching down on a bag of  “Lays” chips, I turned the bag around and looked at the calories, 525. Now I do indulge every now and then by stuffing my face with thinly sliced deep fried potato chips, but compared to my wine intake it’s minuscule. So it makes me wonder how does my bag of chip’s calories compare to my wine drinking calories.
