I have mentioned here a few times that I am not a sweets girl. I mean don't get me wrong if you put a slice of cheesecake down in front of me I'd eat it-- I would hate to be rude, but this "sweet tooth" people speak of I have NO frame of reference. I think the last time I actually got a slice of cake at a wedding was three years ago. Before you go applauding me on my amazing self control I must make a confession to you about my unbridled NEED for salt in my life. I can eat a whole bag of potato chips in one episode of Real Housewives, I can eat ALL my Chick-Fil-A fries before I get home, and I can even (and been known too) eat all the salt from the bottom of the pretzel bag (by the way just because I CAN do all these things dosen't necessarily actually do... well on a regular basis). Clearly I love me the savory side of life.
It is pretty much a regular occurrence that I feel INCREDIBLY guilty about my salty snack intake which is why I am always on the hunt for healthy salty snacks.
I AM OBSESSED.
I picked them up at my local grocery store (HEB for you Texas people, the rest of you I feel sorry for your poor HEB-less souls) intrigued by the well designed packaging, flavor (Dill Pickle chips are the way to my heart, but very hard to find), and STUPID amount of health benefits. I only bought one package (um MISTAKE) because I had played the "I am tasty and healthy" game before and had been doped -fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
When I ate my first black bean and chia seed chip it was MAGIC I tell you, pure unadulterated MAGIC. I immediately regretted only buying one bag and resisted the urge to get back in my car and go buy another bag. Ignoring that urge turned out the be a HUGE mistake. My appite had been wet for Dill Pickle Chia crips and when I went back to the store they had exactly ONE bag left, but it was Southern BBQ. I decided not to discriminate-- I like Southern BBQ too.
Look at all those health benefits...
Good Source of Fiber
Not Genetically Modified
Empty Calorie Free
No artificial preservatives
No Milk Hormones
**As seen on Dr. Oz (I mean just sayin)
After I, or scratch that Reese and his slightly intoxicated friends, finished off my last bag of BBQ after a wedding I was ON THE HUNT to get my hands on some more bags of these. I went as far as almost buying them on Amazon and paying EIGHT DOLLARS for shipping FOR A BAG OF CHIPS. Yall, that is how great these things are.
Point is these chips are LEGIT and if you see them you should really pick up a bag.... or 12 (like I did when my grocery store restocked). They are the perfect healthy snack. The grocery store also told me that if I talked to the grocery manager he could order them for me (so I didn't have to pay shipping), just an idea for those who are wooed by the health benefits, my recommendation and the design nerd packaging!
Lesser Evil has no clue who I am, I am simply a girl who almost paid $8 shipping on ONE bag of chips.
