Popchips Will Pop You in the Mouth With Delicious (Want to Get Popped?)

popchipsWhen a box of popchips arrived on my doorstep, I practically had to defend them with a stick to keep my husband from getting them all before I could try them. I don’t think I succeeded, as he actually got to all of the Sea Salt & Vinegar variety before I got any.

This new-fangled potato chip isn’t fried—unhealthy, the company says—or baked, dubbed undelicious by the company. It’s popped, to keep the flavor in and half the fat out. What’s “popped” exactly? A combo of heat and pressure before a potato “pops” into chip-being. The company keeps it real with natural flavors, no phony colors, no fake flavor or preservatives. At 100 calories a bag, you’re definitely not going to break the caloric bank, and the single-serve bags help if you’re like me and can’t eat just one of any potato chip. With no trans fats, and only .5 grams of saturated fat in a couple of the versions, it’s a snack you won’t feel guilty about munching.

Although the husband stole the Sea Salt & Vinegar, I did get to try the numerous other options: Original, Barbecue, Sour Cream & Onion, Salt & Pepper, Cheddar, and Parmesan & Garlic. The taste verdict? My favorites were Original, Barbecue, and Sour Cream & Onion, while my husband chowed down on the Cheddar and Salt & Pepper with abandon. The chips are thicker than a standard Lay’s chip and heartier than a baked chip. Basically, pick your favorite flavor and you’re not going to be disappointed in the popchip version of it.
