I recently had the opportunity to try The Better Chip; an all natural, gluten-free, cholesterol free, non-GMO ingredients tortilla chip and all I can say is YUM! These chips really live up to their name.
I received three varieties of The Better Chip including: Red Pepper with Salsa Fresco; Jalapeno with Sea Salt; and Sweet Onion with White Cheddar.
The company also sent along a really cute cotton tee shirt with the words "Lip Burner" emblazoned across the chest. This was a gift for taking time to try The Better Chip and write a review.
What I liked most about these chips is they were super fresh and crisp and had just the right amount of seasoning. I'm more of a naked chip kind of gal and prefer to dip my naked chips in salsa. The reason being, most flavored chips on the market have a coating of some manufactured powdery substance that leaves a nasty aftertaste. Or, there's so much seasoning that the taste hangs around in your mouth for hours. Not so with The Better Chip.
The Red Pepper with Salsa Fresco had big flavor packed inside the chip. Take a look for your self...
You can actually see the red pepper flakes baked into the chips. Better yet, the Red Pepper with Salsa Fresco are perfect for those times when you don't have salsa around. While these chips had plenty of flavor on their own I sampled them with some salsa just to see how the tortilla chip would hold up. Of the 10 chips I dipped, not one broke. That's because The Better Chip is thicker than most other brands.
While I enjoyed the Red Pepper chips, I really loved the Sweet Onion and White Cheddar. This really surprised me because I'm not a huge fan of any chips that add white cheddar. Again, it goes back to having too much of the powdered seasoning that usually doesn't even resemble the flavor of white cheddar. Not so with The Better Chip.
These had a great balance of onion and white cheddar flavors. There was a light dusting of white cheddar cheese across the entire chip. Just enough so that when you lick your lips you get the final remnants of the saltiness of the cheese. Delicious!
Sadly, I was only able to eat half of the chips because I shared them with my husband. I served them as a side with BBQ Beef sandwiches and a pickle spear. They were a great addition to the meal and in fact, were the favorite part!
I am saving the Jalapeno with Sea Salt for our Mexican Dinner night this week. I'm thinking of turning them into a nacho dish, but these chips are so good on their own I might just serve them as a side.
Unfortunately, The Better Chip is not yet available in my state, but I'm hoping they arrive soon. The good news is they are available in states where I have friends and family so I've already placed orders.
Learn more about what makes The Better Chip better and see if they are available in your home town. If so, I highly recommend buying a few bags. You won't be disappointed.
