Product Review: Popchips
|March 24, 2009||Posted by Lauren Keating under Reviews|
I had a late night at work tonight, and I still havn’t gotten to the grocery store so dinner ended up being pizza. Which makes tonight the perfect night to do a product review!
Like many other people, popchips first came to my attention during the Superbowl. I was really excited to have the opportunity to try them! They seemed to have a lot of promise since they are all natural and low fat. The texture of these chips takes a little getting used to, but I kind of like it. Its like a cross between a Pringle and a rice cake. They’re really light and crispy, and not greay at all which is really nice. I also find that one serving is surprisingly filling!
As for flavors, I’ve tried barbeque, salt and vinegar, origal, and salt and pepper. I also have a parmasean and garlic, but one bag of those got lost (the box exploded in the FedEx truck, but the driver was nice enough to try to find all the contents for me) and for some reason I’m hoarding the bag that I do have. The barbeque is hands down my favorite. They have a really great flavor. I even went to Target to buy some more, but unfortunately they only stock original. Lame. The salt and pepper was my second favorite- the pepper had a nice bite to it! Salt and vinegar is usually one of my favorite chip flavors, but I thought these were too mild. They smelled really strongly of vineegar, but I couldn’t really taste it. The original were good, but I’m not really a plain chips kind of a girl.
All in all, i think these are a pretty nice alternative to standard chips, and I reommend them (especially the BBQ) for anyone who is looking for a chip with less fat and calories. I hope they come out with mor flavors soon- i bet these woudl be great in sour cream and onion or cheddar!
