Default Can hedgehogs eat veggie chips?

I'm about to be a new owner of a hedgie and I was wondering if they're able to eat veggie chips. If they do will it benefit them in any way or will it harm them?

I'd personally stay clear of veggie chips, since most of them are salted, and I think they're probably in the same category of dried fruit, which is a choking hazard.
That being said, if your hedgie managed to eat a veggie chip, I wouldn't be too concerned unless it happened to be a vegetable hedgies can't have.
(I'm in no means an expert on these types of things, however. I'm a fairly new hedgehog owner, so you might wait for someone a little more experience to weigh in as well. )

No they can't.
They arent really that good for them and they still add salt to them
They are dried and probably likely to be a choking hazard.
They would be of no benefit as they will have little to non nutrients as - like most dried things.

Feel free to feed small amount of plain cooked veg or fresh fruit thats safe but avoid processed things like chips.
