Chips are very salty and not recommended for people who ought to be on a low-salt diet, e.g. those with high blood pressure. Was the irony that you were there to get hypertension medication, and got the chips as well? Something similar?

It might help if I clarify that I did realize the chips were ironic until after I left the pharmacy.

Bingo!

*********SPOILER*********
A few months back, I was reading the news and saw that CVS was no longer going to sell tobacco products. The reason, as they explained it, was that selling such an unhealthy and potentially fatal product was not in line with their mission as a pharmacy. As I was reading this, I was chopping down on a bag of fatty chips I had just bought at my neighborhood CVS.
