Well, it's almost beach time for me! My car is packed and ready to go:
But before I take off, I wanted to leave you guys with a little somethin somethin-
That's right! I didn't forget! The other day at TJ Maxx, I stumbled upon this bag of crunchy deliciousness:
Baked Lentil Chips. Has anybody else seen/tried these? I was hooked just by the ingredients: Bean Flour (Lentil., Adzuki and Garbanzo beans), Potato Starch, Vegetable Oil (Sunflower Seed/Canola Oil), Sea Salt, Potassium Chloride.
Not to mention the stats.
4 grams of protein? 3 grams of fiber? Yes please and thank you! You know I practically smuggled those bad boys out of there. For $2.99, I would have bought every bag - if there had been any others, that is.
Once home with my loot, I proceeded to rip open the bag and pop a few in my mouth. And I was instantly reaching for more. Seriously good stuff. I think I may have found a replacement for my pita chips!
They're crispy and crunchy, but thick - thick enough to not break when you want to pile on the dip. Or the hummus, in my case. They’re not dense though, they’re airy and light. And they taste fantastic. There's no beany aftertaste like I semi-expected. The Mediterranean Snack Food Company has an amazing product on their hands. Actually, they have amazing products since they also have a couple other flavors as well as veggie chips and cheddar puffs! If you're interested, you can find a place that sells them near you here. Unfortunately, they don't have online ordering, but you can call them to have a case shipped straight to your door, though I am unsure of the cost on that front.
Overall, I give this product a 4.75 out of 5 - and that's only because I could have totally done without the Potassium Chloride. Other than that, they were pretty much perfect.
