Beanfields Chips - Review
We always love the chance to sample a new snack or two around our house, so we were thrilled when Beanfields contacted us to try out their new chips. F&B are always up for the challenge of the taste-testing, and this time, we enlisted two of their friends to help us out.
So, what are they?
Beanfields makes yummy snack chips, from black and navy beans and rice, cooked in safflower or sunflower seed oil. Each one ounce servings has 4 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber.
Their chips are vegan, gluten-free, cholesterol-free, trans fat-free, preservative-free and free of every one of the FDA's eight most common allergens, along with being verified as non-GMO.
Five varieties are available--Naturally Unsalted, Sea Salt, Sea Salt & Pepper, Pico de Gallo, and Nacho.
Yum. I absolutely adore the Sea Salt ones. I may have hidden the second bag of them so I didn't have to share. The husband liked them all, and they worked well for his salsa addiction (nice sturdy chips for dipping).
The true test, though, came with the kids and their friends. I asked them to try out the new chips I had, making no mention of the ingredients, and poured out the nacho ones. They all loved them and finished the entire bag between the four of them. Besides the healthy aspect, I did love the there was no orange residue on their hands or my house after the fact! I managed to appropriate a couple of nacho chips for myself and they really do taste like a nacho chip, a huge plus.
Beanfields are available at many natural grocery stores, including many Sunflowers and Sprouts, as well as on their website (click here to find the store closest to you).
