In keeping with my chip fix of late, the next products that I came across were Mediterranean Snacks Baked Lentil Chips (Cucumber Dill) and Lentil Crackers (Rosemary Herb). Now I love lentils so I thought why not give these a go?
First up was the Baked Lentil Chips. These were quite a surprise as they were extremely light and airy and better yet have 70% less fat than potato chips but still pack an impressive crunch punch. The flavor is exceptional and a wonderful blend of spices paired with creamy buttermilk and rounded out with a dash of dill. Now I am a huge fan of dill and find it often under-utilized – these chips give it a chance to really shine.
Next up was the Lentil Crackers. These are a bit more substantial in texture than the lentil chips as they are a proper cracker. The flavor is quite mild initially but as you crunch, the woodsy rosemary flavor begins to manifest itself rounded out and complimented by a salty kick of sea salt. These are perfect on their own as they are full of flavor but also are hearty enough to handle the thickest of dips.
You can view Mediterranean Food’s complete product portfolio on their Web site but I do believe that only the Lentil Chips (which come in six flavor varieties) and Crackers (which come in three varieties) are the only gluten-free products in their line, at least according to their Web site information. You can also follow the brand on Facebook and Twitter – not to mention they have a YouTube channel as well.
