Product: Food Should Taste Good Harvest Pumpkin Tortilla Chips – $2.50+
I am obsessed with it. Not just in the fall, either.
ALL. THE. TIME.
No joke! I look forward to all those delicious pumpkin flavored coffee drinks in the fall. I love to cook with pumpkin and bake with pumpkin and eat pumpkin seeds…
Pumpkin is like my BFF for life.
And now…it’s a tortilla chip.
Yes. A tortilla chip.
Now, some of you may not think this sounds appetizing at all. But trust me…it works. It actually works.
The brand is Food Should Taste Good, which has never made chip I haven’t liked. And while I don’t consume chips often, my roomie spotted this at the grocery store and brought them home for me as a surprise. She knows my obsession with pumpkin well…and…I thanked her for them. I had other treats to devour first, but with my lack of a CSA bin this week and a tight food budget…it was bare necessities time. And with that came…dig through the pantry to find your snacks this week.
Enter Food Should Taste Good Pumpkin Harvest Tortilla Chips. Confused? Don’t be. The basic premise is that this chip is pumpkin flavored, kissed with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon. The pumpkin flavor actually sweetens the chip, which still has that corn tortilla texture and underlying flavor. But the sweetness isn’t too much, as the spices sort of tame it and make it…an interesting but delicious bite. They would be really awesome with a guacamole or hummus. But I like to eat them on their own. I love the soft crunch, the sweet notes in each bite, and that little hint of fall spice. It’s like eating a crunchy pumpkin pie…without the overwhelming pumpkin flavor and that nasty texture that pumpkin pie has (yes…I am a pumpkin freak but SO dislike pumpkin pie).
I. AM. IN. LOVE.
Let’s look at ingredients, shall we? What I love about Food Should Taste Good is that they use real ingredients. Nothing unidentifiable; nothing unpronounceable. No chemicals or preservatives. Just sheer awesome and real ingredients. The Harvest Pumpkin Tortilla Chips are made from stone ground corn, high oleic sunflower oil and/or safflower oil and/or canola oil, cane sugar, dried pumpkin, pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, sea salt and clove.
Nutritionally speaking, a serving of the Food Should Taste Good Harvest Pumpkin Tortilla Chips is 28 grams (I always dish up servings by weight)…or about 12 chips. This serving will provide you with 130 calories and 6 grams of fat. This serving will dish up 80 mg sodium and only 2 grams of sugar. LOVE that. Low sodium…low sugar. YES! You will be consuming 2 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein. These chips are cholesterol free and gluten-free.
And they are made of pumpkin-y love. And I am hooked on them. It’s a good thing I’m insistent about dishing out proper serving sizes and NOT eating out of the bag. It is only for that reason that I still have some chips in my bag in the pantry. Might have to try these with some hummus or guac. Hmmm…
Anyway…don’t be afraid. They are actually rather amazing to bite into and enjoy. If you are a fan of pumpkin…you’ll be a fan of these. If you aren’t a fan of pumpkin, don’t count these out. They won’t overwhelm you with their pumpkin flavor. Just a hint of sweetness before that salty corn tortilla undertone kicks in.
I am in love with these chips. For life.
