I recently came across these Way Better Snacks Sprouted Sweet Chili Tortilla Chips and have to say that I was really impressed with them. Snacks foods and Gluten Free Mike are pretty much synonymous and anytime I can find new, healthier options to get my snack fix on with – well, I am always game.
I know what your are thinking – more corn chips – just what we Celiacs need. I have to say that I was of the same mindset until I really took a look at the ingredients. These are so much more than just corn chips. In fact they actually contain sprouted seeds and gluten-free gains which help add benefits that are sometimes lost when eating whole seeds or grains. Way Better does a way better (pun intended) job of explaining the ins and outs of sprouting. So on to the taste…
The first thing you notice about these chips is that they are light. When you bit into them they are still wonderfully crunch but just have that airy feel to them. Yes, corn is definitely in these chips but so is organic sprouted quinoa, brown rice flour, flax seed, chia seeds, broccoli seeds, and daikon radish seeds. This blend makes for a complex flavor combination that is full of nutty, earthy notes that really make these chips a standout. The Chili flavor is also one of the best I have come across in a long while. It is spicy but not overpowering allowing the subtle undertones of sweet cane sugar to play off of the spicy cayenne pepper, onion, and garlic. A slight tangy kick courtesy of apple cider vinegar and a hint of saltiness make this a truly addictive flavor in my book.
You can learn more about Way Better’s complete product portfolio on their Web site where can also find a store near you that carries them or order right online. I know that I for one am looking forward to trying their other varieties.
