The Better Chip

I review a lot of chips. No really,  a lot

I like chips, but they aren't something I eat all the time, unless they are corn chips. I love corn chips because they seem healthier than potato chips and I they are the perfect vessel for one of my favorite things - salsa. 

When I had the opportunity to review The Better Chip line of corn chips, I was super excited to try them.

The flavors all sounded delish right from the start from Jalapeno and Sea Salt to Red Pepper and Salsa Fresca, I was like yes, these are the chips for me. I was hooked with the first bite of the Japaleno flavor. The first thing that hits your tastebuds is a rich, sweet corn flavor that blows almost all other corn chips out of the water. They are a similar thickness to Tostitos, but have a far better flavor profile. Tostitos are almost a non-entity in taste, made to simply deliver salsa to your mouth, but The Better Chip is actually a fantastic chip to snack on - sans salsa. Which is saying a lot coming from me. 

The Better Chip - Jalapeno

They are naturally gluten-free and made from non-GMO ingredients. A HUGE plus for me. Of all the flavors I had an oppportunity to sample - Jalapeno and Sea Salt was my favorite. The jalapenos added a brightness with a green pepper flavor and a subtle hint of spice. I devoured the whole bag in minutes - thank goodness they were snack size! 

I hope more people catch on to these great chips soon. I'll keep my eyes peeled in my local supermarkets to see if they hit the shelves soon.

Anyone else try these chips before? What did you think?
