Product review: EatSmart Naturals - Veggie Chips from the Goodies December box

As part of the December box from Goodies.co I received a bag of EatSmart Naturals - Veggie Chips, which contained the flavors of potato, tomato and spinach. The bag is one serving with 160 delicious calories. The chips are more crisps than chips since they are low in fat (12% total fat) and not greasy at all. They have no cholesterol and are also gluten free - one of several gluten free products included in the December Goodies box. The company website is eatsmartnaturals.com and they have additional products that are gluten free, including tortilla chips and cheese curls.

I served the crisps for lunch to accompany sandwiches and with a side of cheese. As you can see from the picture above, the crisps come in three flavors and while the tomato flavor is obvious, the spinach flavor is somewhat weak and not easily discernible. The potato flavor is fine and what I really like about all three kinds of chips is the fact that they are totally non greasy. They are very crunchy and crisp. They are perfect to accompany a smooth textured cheese like a brie or the sliced pepper jack that we used. I rarely rave about veggie crisps or so called healthy chips because they often taste too healthy or even somewhat stale. These eatsmart chips taste fresh and very good. They actually do taste like chips that have been air dried and all the flavor, especially in the tomato flavor, has been preserved.

To all my readers that suffer from gluten allergies, I can recommend these chips as a healthy component of their diet. I would not miss regular chips as well since I find regular potato chips often too greasy to eat and have switched over to pretzel sticks instead. These eatsmart veggie chips are a wonderful and healthy alternative for those that look for healthy chips to eat with their sandwich at lunch.
