Let's get the introductions out of the way. The Better Chip, readers. Readers, The Better Chip. Hi.
The Better Chip is a healthier tortilla chip that's gluten free, has no genetically modified ingredients, 100% all natural... veggies and whole grain corn masa. That's it. I know, I know... you know how people say that healthy snacks equals "no flavor, no thank you" but you know what... these are really yummy!
Chips and dip are my absolute *favorite* snack. Hands down. Put out a bowl of french onion dip and crunchy chips... watch out, here I come. It's my 'go-to' for any sporting event, bbq, family potluck, etc. It's a must have in my book.
Without knowing my love for chips n' dip, The Better Chip sent me samples of five of their signature flavors: Spinach and Kale, Jalapeños, Red Peppers, Sweet Onion and Corn.
Despite the flavor, they all had the same thick consistency. They are perfect for dipping -- chips that will not break when you dip into a thick, creamy dip, salsa, hummus... any delicious dip!
The Better Chip #1: Corn. Simple goodness. Salty, tasted exactly like what it is, corn. Perfect pairing with the chunky salsa.
The Better Chip #2: Sweet Onion. Yum. One of my favorite flavors. Anything that is made with sweet onion calls my name. I tried these with a french onion dip - oh, so good. Nice, subtle onion-y, sweet flavor. I could have eaten these all day.
The Better Chip #3: Red Pepper. These were super duper flavorful. Spicy, bold red pepper flavor. Like a hyped up Dorito, but ten times better!
The Better Chip #4: Jalapeño. You can see the bits of jalapeño in each chip. Each chip packed a spicy punch and I enjoyed it with the creamy dip because it "cooled" it down. M thought these were like biting into an actual jalapeño and these were his least favorite, but I really liked it.
The Better Chip #5: Spinach and Kale. Kale is the popular green nowadays -- throwing it into your Vitamix or blender for beta carotene and calcium in your shakes with subtle flavor as opposed to spinach. Although I do like eating both greens, this chip flavor was just okay. It did remind me of eating wheatgrass in a crunchy chip form, haha.
The Sweet Onion and Red Pepper flavors were my favorite. The regular Corn flavor is perfect with your favorite salsa or even a cold spinach dip. The Better Chip can be found in the deli section of the grocery store, as opposed to the snack aisle (smart, eh?).

On the side note, a good friend of mine worked on a sustainable farm last summer and she has taught me so much about organic foods, nutrition, gardening/harvesting, and farm fresh products. The Better Chips make me feel good about what I am actually eating -- and hey, they are delicious!
Thank you, The Better Chip!
