The Better Chip May 15, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — colesbites @ 5:35 pm

The other day, I relieved a package in the mail from The Better Chip. When I opened up the box, I found a pink shirt, a reusable bag and 8 bags of chips, sweet onion, corn, jalapeño and red pepper. Each flavor is made from whole grain corn masa, 40% fresh veggies and  sea salt or natural seasoning as well as gluten free. These chips are made with 100% natural ingredients, not genetically modified, and no preservatives or cholesterol.

The Jalapeño and sea salt flavor had a nice kick to them. Each chip is hardy, double thick chips, crunchy and full of flavor. A 1oz serving of 10 chips has 130 calories, 6g of fat, 16g of carbs, 2g of fiber and 2 g of protein.

The sweet onion and white cheddar had a hardy, crunchy texture and a sweet but not overly powering onion flavor that I actually liked. I also liked the hint of cheesy goodness in every chip. This was by far my favorite flavor. Each serving of 10 chips has 130 calories, 6g of fat, 16g of carbs, 2g of fiber and 2g of protein.

Corn flavor: Usually corn chips are not GMO free since corn tends to be one of those ingredients in which farmers use tons of pesticide to kill weeds and gmo seeds can withstand the use of pesticides and weed killers. These chips are made with non-gmo corn which i liked. The flavor of these corn flavored chips were amazing and the double-thick tortilla chips added a great crunch factor. Each serving of 10 chips has 130 calories, 6g of fat, 16g of carbs, 2g of fiber and 2g of protein.

 Red pepper and salsa fresco: These red pepper flavored tortilla chips tasted as if there was a hint of salsa on them without actually having any dip on them. Each chip was sweet and savory with the salsa fresco actually being made with fresh bell peppers to aid in the taste. Each serving of 10 chips has 130 calories, 6g of fat, 16g of carbs, 2g of fiber and 2g of protein.
