Slim Chips by Hafsteinn Juliusson


Milan 2010: designer Hafsteinn Juliusson of Iceland and Italy presented flavoured paper snacks in Milan last week.

Called Slim Chips, the snacks are made of edible paper with organic colours and flavours in peppermint, blueberry and sweet potato.

See all our stories about Milan 2010 in our special category.

Here's a tiny bit of text from Juliusson:

Slim Chips are good and they contain no calories. Instead of getting fat you can now eat paper with different flavors. It's like eating tasty air. The Slim Chips are made out of edible paper and pure organic tastes.

    are they good?

  • I like it. There is probably a big market for it in the USA

    Hopefully it is not made of recycled paper :)

    Or is it?

  • Therese Senac

    Yay!.. this has savoury versions of sugar paper!

  • Pony the Trap

    At the very least they could have put them in a paper bag. Or an envelope so you can tear chips off at will. That said, anyone eating these (hipster or otherwise) deserves a hammer to the shins.

  • Stella Corona

    Doesn’t paper have calories? It’s all fiber!

  • Kudos Pony

  • Is it provided in A4 sheets?

    Then we would dot need burn letters or put them into the shredders. You could eat the paperwork you do not like others to see!

    Honestly I have to say that this is an excellent idea from Hafsteinn Julíusson:

    economic ruin and volcanic ash… finally something good to come out of iceland…

  • Are you kidding? Instead of pushing for people to live more balanced healthy lifestyles, we are promoting the continuance of excessive eating with empty food. We complained for years about non-nutricious food causing our health demise, and here we have an actual, completely nutrition-less “food” we are praising.

    The chips for your anorexia have arrived!

  • cacas

    soylent green!!!! hehehehe!! I`m afraid. hehehehe

  • denis

    i’d rather have a salad – it goes down better!

  • davide

    if you’ve been eating shit for your whole life you don’t know that it tastes like shit..

    i see nice sarcasm here! thumbs up, guys!
    but you should have used an eco-package as well…

  • CARBS.

  • Booh

    Yeah! What he said:

    I’ll take three!

    No! Five!

    Where the hell did they come up with these flavors though… peppermint… blueberry… and sweet potato. I wonder if the snozzberry really tastes like snozzberry..

  • memo

    Hey !! maybe with a soda ink flavored cola to swallow those chips.

  • Adan

    odd and good, just like björk!

  • I like the “Don’t get fat” logo.

  • The end of food.

  • pavs

  • Healz

    i had mushroom flavoured paper chips once. Tasted terrible and made me hallucinate.

  • Lucy

    Why cant they just eat salad or something=?


      Cause then you are killing lettuces fool!

  • Jetwax

    Is that zero calories as in “Coke Zero” ? One wonders what goes into it to enable it to have zero calories d;-)

  • irene

    If you don’t wanna get fat, just stop eating! you don’t need toilet paper to loose weight! What are we? Cows – to be chewing all the time???

  • Nart

    I'd rather have salad with no dressing. (which is what I've been eating for the past few years)

  • victoria

    Millions malnourished. Spend money on paper – to eat. Claim you’re sane.
