For some reason I always seemed to consume more snacky types of food when I’m on holiday. It must be the season. My newest snacky snack is the raw flavored kale chips from Rhythm Chips.
The kale chips are air crisped at a low temperature so they’re nice and crunchy. Vegan and gluten-free too. Basically, it’s just kale flavored with a blend of fresh veggies, nuts, juices, herbs and spices.
I haven’t had nacho flavored chips in a long time, but the taste is very similar and it’s so much healthier. It’s amazing to have the nacho taste without the scary long list of chemical sounding ingredients and artificial flavors.
Unlike the extra long kale chips that are baked in an oven, these are much smaller as they have to fit in a bag. There’s some big chunks, pictured above, but at the bottom there’s also all the smaller broken-off pieces (good for sprinkling on other foods).
Besides the Zesty Nacho, there’s also Bombay Curry and Kool Ranch, neither which I’ve tried yet. Two servings in a 2 oz. bag, at 106 calories per serving. The sodium isn’t too bad, about 187mg per serving.
Available at Whole Foods, they retail for about $5.99. Kinda pricey, but there’s also a $2.00 off sticker right on the package which can be used immediately, bringing the price down to $3.99.
