"Slim Chips" Flavored Paper Chips In Stores This Summer?

Diet heaven meets ironic design joke: very soon you may be able to experience the delight that is eating those pieces of zero-calorie, hardened, flavored, edible wafer paper we told you about a few weeks ago.

Brand Packaging reports that “Slim Chips” will be on shelves very soon, two years after the concept made a bit of a splash on ze blogs.Via email, designer Hafsteinn Juliusson confirmed the story. “Hopefully we will have them available this summer,” he writes, “It’s a Icelandic pop corn producer that produces them. At the moment we dont know where it will lead to,” noting that you can stay up to date on the progress on his Facebook page. In April, we called Slim Chips a concept piece that “will never be sold in stores,” so I guess now we’ll just have to eat our words. Mmm, eating crow has never been this slimming!
