Alas, I too love potatoe chips, but the carrots are what I end up snacking on as well. However I just have to indulge at times and have my favorite "ALL DRESSED" flavored chips. I love to dip them in plain sour cream. OOOOO toooooo yummy.

I love them both, though i think i love crisps (as we call them in the UK) more, plus they are more convienient and are something you can 'have in' rather than have to buy fresh like you do with carrots. However, carrots are obviously better for you and i really should eat more of those!

The carrots are good for you, but sometimes you just need a salty chip.

I have to admit, chips. I'm not a huge fan of raw veggies.

I'm not big on potato chips, so I'd have to day Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Although I usually have the carrots...

Both actually.I love veggies but do eat low fat chips like Baked lays or low fat pringles.I still make sure I watch my intake of the chips,though.

Potato chips; but, I limit how much and which type. I only eat Lays potato chips which were fried in sunflower oil and not the flavored ones. (I have too many allergies.) I also limit myself to either one single serving package/bag OR take a small bowl and fill it with chips. When they are gone, that's it. No eating directly out of one of the big bags or I'll eat too many. Carrots are OK; but, they just aren't as satisfying to me. If I want a change of pace; I'll snack on some carrots or celery. But, only occasionally.

I like carrots, but between the two I would rather have the chips. However, I would rather have SunChips than just regular potato chips. I believe they are a little healthier too!!

I would much rather have carrots than potatoe chips. I only like potatoe chips once in a while.

Give me veggies over chips anytime. chips are alright once in a while but carrots are great. We just had some fresh carrots for dinner tonight.

I would rather have potatoechips, but i do try to snack on veggies instead - however sometimes I will buy chips and just enjoy it for what it is without thinking about the calories =)

I could go either way. Fresh vegetables are always nice, espeically with cream cheese or a nice dip. Chips aren't so bad either. They're not all bad for you. There are many kinds of tortilla and corn chips, even organic chips. I've recently discovered blue corn. Guiltless Gourmet has a nice line of chips--they taste good too! Corn chips come in blue or yellow. Apparently certain kinds of corn are naturally blue. They've been growing it that way in Mexico for years. Interesting.
