Eating a green chip may have ranked among your worst childhood nightmares, but one Penn professor (who already has a whole lot on his plate) thinks tasting the rainbow might actually help shed some pounds!
A recent study found that students consumed 50% fewer chips if red-dyed, edible chips were inserted into stacks at regular intervals. The colored chips seem to suggest a measure for serving size, creating a portion control system that prevents snackers from guiltlessly wiping out a whole Pringles can in one sitting.
But let’s be real; the color red does nothing to stop people from binging. Besides, this would make for an awful new slogan: “Once you pop, the fun stops at the first red chip.”
