Win POPCHIPS!

Happy one-month anniversary of Valentine's Day!! 
What?  You don't celebrate the month after Valentine's Day?  Well, good thing I do; I have a special gift for you!


In February, I got the best Valentine of all: special delivery from Popchips!, love note and all:


Popchips was kind enough to share with me their new flavor - Sweet Potato!


The box contained several snack-size bags of Sweet Potato Popchips, all with a cute Valentine attached.  I'm a sucker for puns.

Here I am, rambling on and on about my Valentine's package. Where are my manners?  Readers, may I introduce you to Popchips.  For those of you who don't know what Popchips are, they're the hottest, tastiest "chip" on the market. The best part is, they're not bad for you (Popchips are not fried; they're popped!) and don't have too many scary, unidentifiable chemicals listed in the ingredients.  Sounds like my kind of chip!


Want more information?  Their website has everything you could want to know, including FAQs about the popping process, nutritional details, the variety of flavors offered, where they're sold, and the online Popstore where you can order your own chips!  Check out their site or their Facebook page for more fun tidbits.

Now, back to my love affair: 
I'd had the "Original" flavor Popchips a few times before and already knew I liked the chip itself.  Thin, but airy, crunchy but light. Plus, being so low in calorie, these make the perfect companion for my more calorie-dense dips, like hummus or guacamole.  Now it was time to try flavors, broaden my horizons.  So, I poured myself a bowl of sweet potato Popchips to taste-test.

Quite delicious!  The natural sweet potato flavor really comes through.  Out of habit, I almost paired them with hummus, but they were flavorful enough on their own.  This makes these little bags a great snack to toss in my purse or schoolbag while I'm headed out--packaged flavor without the grease!  I always need easy, no-mess snacks handy for my long days commuting, out & about.

In sum: tasty, light, popped!  Bonus points: they're also vegan and gluten-free !!  As a vegetarian temporarily avoiding wheat, this is extremely exciting for me.

And now, it can be exciting for YOU!

  1. POP CHIPS! So good. They don't want me to win ... I could eat a lot of Pop Chips in one month. But as for how I'd use them, I'd use them for full meals. Breakfast = seven bags of cheddar potato, lunch = ten bags of sea salt and vinegar, and dinner = twelve barbecue potato. For a full month. If I wanted to live it up, I'd have parmesan garlic for dessert. Hope I win!!

  27. If it wasn't for Brandon Dubinsky i would have never found out the amazing-ness that are pop chips. I entered #Bdubipops giveaway everytime and never won! I'm finally starting to see them around Jersey after searching for them for months but only in one flavor :[ you should send me the assortment :].

  70. These sound amazing - so many great sounding varieties, leaving me torn between sour cream and onion, sweet potato, barbecue, and parmesan garlic - they all sound great as standalone snacks or with a sandwich or salad, but you had to go an mention hummus, so plain dipped in hummus sound amazing as well!

  80. Popchips ROCK! I have only tried the sweet potato one and did love it so I am quite interested to taste the others :) Hmm my next choice of flavor would be the BBQ.. or sour cream and onion... or parm and garlic?! I cannot decide :) I love chips ON sandwiches and I am sure these would add a great crunch and flavor to a big old sub!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I have never tried Popchips, but I'm pretty sure my favorite flavor is going to be Sour Cream and Onion. Two of the greatest things ever combined on a healthy chip? Yes, please.
    I'll probably eat these as my snack during the weeknights since I don't get to go home from 7 am-10pm. Plus, I've always wanted to scare away all of my classmates with my onion breath, so..... two birds, one stone.

    ReplyDelete
  82. It's a close race between BBQ and Salt & Vinegar for my favorite flavor. Popchips are the best!
