Pop or Flop? Crunchy Snack Review and Giveaway
March 16, 2010 43 Comments
Can a potato chip be magical? If you could wave a wand and do something to a chip - what would it be?
Clearly, Pop Chips, think they have performed alchemy. They call themselves "craving-crushing" and "an all-natural chip like you've never tasted before". My expectations are very high.
My friend, Danica, suggested that I try Pop Chips, so I e-mailed the company to get a sample (I couldn't find any at my local Stop-N-Shop).
I am a fan of Baked Lays, because while they are not the healthiest food, they perform a service. You can grab a 100 calorie bag of these versus a 250 calorie bag of other potato chips with your sandwich and save yourself some calories.
What about Pop Chips? The manufacturer thinks they taste better than baked chips. I think this is a matter of personal opinion. I didn't like them better - but you might. They are made with 1/2 the fat of regular potato chips and do have a very light texture.
But, healthy? No. They are highly processed and devoid of nutrients when you compare them to Apples.
Also, I have found something else to satisfy my chip craving. A 100 calorie bag of Potato Chips. Yes, they do exist, and they are the perfect portion that makes you savor your treat. And, there is no monstrous bag sitting in your cupboard calling to you.
DO NOT buy your chips at Costco. I did that once and the results were not pretty (as my butt got bigger).
I received a coupon book (coupon for 2 free bags and other deals) from Pop Chips with the chips they sent me. I would love to send this along to a Pop Chip fan.
Please comment on why you like Pop Chips and I will choose a winner tomorrow.
