sweet, crispy and a lot of delicious.
I received a .8 ounce bag of Sweet Potato Pop Chips in my November Love with Food box.
When I munch on salty snacks like these, I like to drink iced tea because they just seem to go well together. I brewed up a pitcher of this OYGFIB? blend from 52Teas last night, and I enjoyed a tall glass of it with these Sweet Potato Pop Chips. A really tasty snack.
What I Think:
When I first saw “Pop Chips” on the grocery store shelves, I didn’t really think much about them. Something about them sounded “off” to me … was it like a thin rice cake that is made to taste like potato chips or what?
But it turns out, they’re nothing like what I thought they’d be. These are actual sweet potatoes (and rice flour) that are air popped to create a crispy, tasty snack that is (in my opinion) just as tasty as a fried potato chip, but without the fried thing going on, because, you know, fried is not only not the healthy way to go, but, it also is greasy and after a couple of potato chips, I tend to find this greasiness rather unpleasant.
These aren’t greasy at all. I taste the sweet potato, and it tastes the way I expect a sweet potato to taste: Sweet and savory and delicious. I think that this has been “seasoned” with a touch of sugar and I can taste a hint of salt too. That’s it. I taste a lot of sweet potato flavor, and a little bit of sugar and a little bit of salt. And a whole lot of YUM!
My Final Thoughts:
These are the new must have as far as I’m concerned. I’ll be buying more of these. Fortunately, they have acquired a certain amount of popularity, as I have seen these in my local Whole Foods. I’ll start checking the other grocery stores as well. I can’t wait to try some other flavors, when I do, I’ll be sure to update my blog with those taste discoveries.
