Fighting the creeping gelatination of my late twenties, I have often lamented the lack of zero calorie food: there’s just so many saltines and mustard a man can eat. So while everything I know about nutrition is recoiling at this line of calorieless chips by Icelandic designer Hafsteinn Júlíusson, my inner ectomorph is begging the hambeast that swallowed him to order a case. Slim Chips are made of edible, non-toxic paper and flavored in peppermint, blueberry and sweet potato. And what a pitch! “Instead of getting fat you can now eat paper with different flavors. It’s like eating tasty air.” Tasty air! I love that stuff.
Concept only for right now, alas, but it does bring up an excellent dieting suggestion : why not start slathering mustard on scraps of A4?
