Told ya I had something fun for you this week!
So back when I was actively trying to lose weight, I was paying a lot of attention to food labels. As you do. I tracked my calories with Lose It — I still track pretty often, mostly just to make sure I’m getting enough protein these days. But when I was trying to lose my extra pounds from college and get in better shape, I was paying particularly close attention to my fiber and fat intake. Lots of fiber, not too much fat.
I was at home all day every day since I hadn’t yet scored my internship, so the desire to snack out of boredom was really high. I soon discovered a way to snack guilt-free: with Food Should Taste Good brand tortilla chips.
Now that I’m no longer trying to lose weight, I still love how delicious these chips are, AND I love the ingredient list:
Everything is all natural and recognizable! Plus, check out all those seeds and quinoa.
All of FSTG’s chips are gluten & cholesterol free, and many are vegan as well. And did I mention they’re delicious? It’s a pretty sturdy chip, so they even point out on the packaging that “it’s a cracker, too!”
I contacted FSTG to tell them how much I enjoy their chips, and was overwhelmed with joy at the arrival of a sample box on my porch!
All four bags were new to me flavors, and I couldn’t wait to dig in. I instantly grabbed the bag of Jalapeno Tortilla Chips and tore in (typical for me, the spicy food lover!)
These were hands down my favorite flavor. I described them to T-Man as a “healthy” dorito, which I think gave him unrealistic expectations for the chip haha. But what’s not to love about a chip that packs a ton of spicy flavor without leaving an unnatural orangey residue on your fingers afterward?
They’re colored with beet juice! But I promise they don’t taste like beets 😉
Check out the other amazing flavors they sent:
Loved these. They are pretty much the blue corn version of their original multigrain chip. Blue corn has a bit of a nuttier flavor…
Or maybe that was all the nuts/seeds in the chip 🙂
I had tried their sweet potato tortilla chips before, but was excited to try these slightly lower-in-fat kettle cooked chips (which are my favorite kind of potato chip!). They have a special way of cooking them that uses less fat.
You can’t tell in this picture
because the only chips that were left after binging on them Friday night with friends were all folded…but they are slightly thick chips and though they’re perfectly crispy, they still have some chew to them. Yum!
And the kicker… get ready for this flavor, guys:
Once I opened this bag, I pretty much made sure all my visitors tried it because I wanted to get everyone’s opinion. They’re definitely weird chips. The semi-sweet chocolate and dutch cocoa ensures a very rich chocolatey taste…
But everyone seemed to like them! Even as we ate and kept saying “man these are bizarre”, we somehow kept on grabbing for more. They are highly addictive! But only 4g of sugar 🙂
I personally think the best way to describe them is like chocolate graham crackers. The unique thing about them, though, is that they’re also fairly salty! I love me a salty+chocolatey combo. I did have a stroke of genius, however, and found a perfect pairing for them:
Ummm, chocolate tortilla chips + cinnamon flavored cream cheese spread = PERFECT!
I was so glad to sample this box and loved all the flavors. It will definitely ensure that next time I spot them in the grocery store I will go for one of their more unique flavors, instead of always sticking with my trusted Multigrain 🙂
