Salty's Potato Chips are a snack that can be found in vending machines, on corpses, and other places around Rapture. They heal a small amount of Health when consumed. When used with the Extra Nutrition Tonic, they will restore much more health.

Help Caption[]

A bag of delicious potato chips will give you a small amount of Health. Like all food and drink, they are consumed immediately when picked up.

Behind the Scenes[]

Choose wisely.

The unused brands.

  • In the Little Wonders Educational Facility of Point Prometheus, a special dispenser of Potato Chip can be found. It has two buttons connected to monitors displaying images of a Big Daddy and a woman. If Jack pushes the button under the female image, a small shock will electrocute him and he will lose a small portion of health. Hitting the Big Daddy image button causes one of an infinite supply of Potato Chip bags to fall from the machine. A variation of a Skinner Box, this machine was used to condition Little Sisters into accompanying Big Daddies (positive conditioning) and fear their female parents (negative conditioning).
  • Apart from having a franchise in the potato chip industry, Salty's is also an associate film studio called Salty's Sin-o-Scopes Pictures, specializing in erotic films.[1]
  • James Sharpe's portfolio features two additional brands of potato chip bags, Snappy Chappy and Wild Nights,[2] which were not used in the final version of the game.
