PopChips All Natural

01-19-09_1552Big thanks to Alex over at PopChips for the lovely care package.  Inside the box were 9 single serving size PopChips Baggies. Perfect for bringing along as a snack for lunch. I got all 5 varieties which includes: Original, Salt & Pepper, Sea Salt & Vinegar, Parmesan Garlic, and Barbecue. These chip are never fried and never baked. So how can they make it so crispy, crunchy and so chip-like? “We apply heat and pressure and pop! it’s a chip.” I don’t fully understand the magic of it all, but whatever it is that they do, I like it. These PopChips are yummy and less fatty than normal potato chips, but they do not lack in flavor. The texture of these is sort of like a hybrid of potato chips and rice crackers which is refreshing. I can’t say that these are grease-less because they do use safflower oil, sunflower oil and canola oil on them, but based on the residue left on my fingers and the inside of the chip bag, PopChips are defiantly less greasy than normal potato chips. No preservatives, no artificial flavors or colors, no cholesterol, no saturated fat, and 0 grams trans fat makes me that much less guilty for snacking. I’ve seen the larger bags at Whole Foods for $2.99 and Fresh & Easy for $1.99 ($1.59 when on sale). I haven’t gotten a chance to try all 5 flavors yet, but I did try the Barbecue flavor already and they were very tasty.
