… Popcorn in Chip Form! Curious?
Remember rice cakes? If not, allow me to create a visual for you … dry, bland, crumbly, leaving your cotton-lined, parched mouth craving a fire hose to reintroduce enough hydration. Well, these chips don’t go there!
Chip’ins All Natural Popcorn Chips provide the habit-forming flavor of buttery, salted popcorn, without the annoying kernels notorious for getting stuck in one’s teeth. I’m so glad someone, Thank You Popcorn, Indiana, finally created a popcorn chip. What a concept. Really, what a concept! Delicious! They’re light and airy (ever so slightly reminiscent of a rice cake’s airiness without any of the bad baggage), have a crunch loud enough to hear, and can become your next addiction if you’re not careful. Chip’ins are flavorful enough that you just might find yourself unconsciously consuming the bag in one sitting. Need them to be a team player, though? They partner well with dips, hummus, and guacamole.
I love that Chip’ins are gluten free, made with whole grain corn, contain zero trans fat, and no cholesterol, artificial flavors, or preservatives. Chip’ins come in five munchable flavors: Sea Salt (dairy-free), White Cheddar, Hot Buffalo Wing, Jalapeño Ranch, and their newest creation, Classic BBQ (also dairy free). Each 1 oz./20g serving (about 20 chip’ins) contain 120 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, and 1g fiber.
Want some other fun ways to enjoy Chip’ins? Try crushing the BBQ or the Hot Buffalo Wing chips and using the crumbs as a coating for baked chicken. How about finely grinding the Jalapeño Ranch chips and mixing with sour cream, or a dairy-free alternative, and making an extra-flavorful dip for the Sea Salt variety or crunch veggies? I bet White Cheddar pieces would liven up your next baked potato.
Ready to add these to your next shopping list? Here are some of the familiar places you can find them: Walmart, Whole Foods, Super Target, Walgreens, Sam’s Club, Costco, CVS, Ralph’s, BJ’s Wholesale Club, and Safeway. You can also purchase them online directly from PopcornIndiana.com. Knowing that Chip’ins are so readily available is a good thing, I think (if I can I control my new addiction).
