When I was in college, my fabulous dietitian had samples of PopChips in her office. I very clearly remember taking a sample, because hey, who doesn’t love free stuff, but thinking “Oh boy, another low fat fakey.” Well, I was wrong – because the crunchy, salty potato-y goodness of PopChips kept me coming back. I’ve been a fan of them for several years and usually replenish my stash at Costco, and my favorite flavor is definitely the BBQ. My husband even likes them, and that’s saying a lot as he is definitely a fan of good old fashioned fatty boom boom BBQ potato chips. (Who’s not, right?!)
This year at FitBloggin’, I was psyched to get to try out the new PopChips Tortilla Chips! There are four flavors – Nacho Cheese, Ranch, Salsa and Chili Limon. My favorites are definitely ranch and chili limon – they’re slightly spicy, salty and tangy and are perfect on their own. With half the fat of fried or flavored tortilla chips and 0 grams of saturated fat, these are a chip you can feel good about eating. I also love that they’re all natural – they’re Non-GMO and have no preservatives or fake flavors and colors. I think this goes a long way in snacking, because I don’t feel as “heavy” when I eat natural snacks. My only request to PopChips is that they make a plain tortilla version – I’d love to have a lower calorie tortilla chip for guacamole or salsa or light nachos.(Nerdy industry sidenote: They have the cutest writing on the bags. Props to their copywriter and marketing comms team! I’m so much more inclined to buy a lighter food product if the attitude is fun! (I know, I’m weird.))
