Simply 7 Snacks are simply delicious

Thought I love sweets, sometimes I crave a salty and crunchy snack.  I'm not fond of pretzels, and we all know that potato and corn chips are loaded with unhealthy fat. I try to keep those products of my house except for parties.
Simply 7 Snacks

Recently, I was sent a box of Simply 7 Snacks to sample. But, when I looked at the list of ingredients, I thought it sounded a little too good to be true. After a few bites, I changed my mind. I couldn't believe how crispy and terrific the chips tasted.  Doubting myself, I gave some to a few friends, and they all agreed. These chips prove that healthy snacks is possible.

The Simply 7 Company was founded and stands behind seven impressive core standards:

Zero grams of trans-fat and no cholesterol
No artificial ingredients or flavors
No additives or preservatives
Gluten-free ingredients
All-natural recipes
Simple ingredients
Simply delicious

Quinoa Chips 
Their "better for you" products come flavored as Hummus Chips, Lentil Chips, Pomegranate Chips and Quinoa Chips.  In each case, the named item (hummus, quinoa, etc.) is the main ingredient.

First I tried sea-salted pomegranate chips because they just sounded so unusual. However, even though they had a nice crunch, they were a little too sweet for my liking.

Next, I tried Quinoa Cheddar Chips and loved them. To think that a serving (about 20 chips) includes eight grams of protein is a real bonus. The calorie count for that serving size runs about 140 calories.  Not bad!

I also devoured the sample of Quinoa Sour Cream and Onion Chips. I have not used the products with dips because they taste so god plain.  I suspect guacamole would make a smashing combination.

I was happy to learn about Simply 7 Snacks and will definitely be on the look-out for them in the grocery store.  According to the company's literature, they are carried by Safeway, Harris Teeter, HEB, Shaw's, Whole Foods, Gelson's and Shop Rite.  Each bag should cost between $2.50 and $3.49.

No more blue corn chips for me. I love these snacks and would absolutely be proud to serve them to my friends and grandchildren.
