If you’re like me, your kids snack constantly, and are constantly deciding they’re tired of what’s in the cupboard. Unless it’s candy, which, of course, they would eat for all three meals and snacks if you let them. I recently posted about healthy snacks for your toddler here, but then I discovered another snack that is not only delicious and kid-approved, but is actually full of wholesome ingredients.
Another snack food that my kids never seem to tire of is chips. In fact, they’ve made the short list of foods my autistic son will actually verbalize (chips!!chips!!!). I think chips are a go-to munchie for most people, but they’re usually ridiculously high in sodium and other things you don’t want in your (or your offspring’s) body.
I sampled three varieties of the Honchos tortilla chips (Deep River Snacks also sells kettle chips, potato chips, popcorn, and baked chips): ranch, nacho cheese, and peach habanero. Healthier does not always necessarily mean tastier, but I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor and texture of the ranch flavored chips.
I would definitely say that the taste was as good or better than an unhealthy version of the chip (we’re all thinking of the one that starts with a “D”). The only thing I have against this chip is that it’s not the peach habanero. But more on that later. The nacho cheese was also totally yummy. It seems taking out all the bad stuff doesn’t adversely affect the taste. Who would’ve thought.
My three kids, my husband and I all sampled all three varieties and we all really enjoyed them all, but I gotta tell you, the peach habanero was on another level. I don’t know how they managed to get a perfect approximation of a peach in a chip, but it is amazing. Pretty much the perfect chip. I mean I’m literally unsure I’ve enjoyed a tastier chip in my life …
Okay, so now for the information you’re practically begging me for: how can I get my hands on this delectable yet nutritious health product?! The great news is that there’s a pretty good chance your local grocery store carries it. You’ll find it either in the deli, organic or gluten-free aisle. You can click here to check for sure. You can also buy it on Amazon!
Do yourself and your kids a favor, stock up on the yumminess and take my advice: double up on the peach habanero. You just don’t want to deal with the disappointment when the bag comes up empty.
