I'm a total chip person. I love a good crunchy snack, and the healthier the better. But I must admit - some healthy chips aren't always delicious. After recently trying some Kale chips, I only got through about five before I quickly resorted to salt and vinegar Pringles. When my crunchy craving hits, dried leaves just don't cut it.
After loving the chia seeds I tried from Prana back in November (link to my Chia Banana Pancake Recipe here) I was really interested in trying these coconut chips to see just how "natural" (a.k.a. leaf-y) they taste.
Named after popular dance from around the world, one bag of chips retails for around $4 CAD. They are essentially organic coconut, sliced, dried and seasoned. yum. Here is the list in order of preference:
Dry roasted and seasoned with sea salt & cracked black pepper
Organic coconut strips in their most natural state
Dry roasted and seasoned with a rich and unique BBQ mix
Dry roasted and seasoned with spicy chili and exotic spices
When you bite into these crunchy chips, you get a natural coconut flavour, mixed with the seasonings (if any) and you'll definitely notice that there is coconut oil in them. We all love coconut here at home, so each flavour has been a hit.
Whether it's as a movie snack (Jive) salad topper (Hula) or smoothie bowl addition, (Classic) these chips are exotic enough to enlighten your taste buds, but not overly oily or seasoned to make you regret it an hour later.
These coconut chips are vegan, organic, gluten-free, kosher and GMO-free. Lots of love for this awesome Canadian brand as I was sent the entire range as a press sample.
