Food Should Taste Good (and it does!) Review and Giveaway
I was contacted by the Food Should Taste Good chip people recently to taste their products. Asking me to taste these chips is like asking someone else to sample an all-you-can-eat ice cream buffet, or the best chocolate in the world. Tortilla chips are my food vice. More specifically, Food Should Taste Good chips are my vice. I love these chips and have been eating them since I discovered them 3 years ago at Whole Foods. Since then, I only buy them when I promise myself I’ll use full restraint and will eat them on occasion, sticking to the serving size. I have yet to keep that promise…I love FSTG so much that I even contacted them about being their RD spokesperson. I never heard back about that, but hey, the offer is still good!
Anyway, I immediately agreed, as there were some new varieties of FSTG chips I had not tried. The day I got the FSTG package, I tore into it to find the Multigrain, Sweet Potato, Yellow Corn, Blue Corn and Cheddar Varieties. For research purposes only (riigghhtt) I ripped open the Multigrain, Sweet Potato, and Blue Corn. The Multigrain chip is like a powerhouse version of a standard tortilla chip. It is perfectly salted, crunchy, crisp, and actually tastes multigrain (but in a good way, not in a highly processed chip way). I love sweet potatoes, so a sweet potato chip combo is even better. I’ve tried these in the past, but had to re-taste to be sure. Yep, just as good as I remember. Subtly sweet and salty, which is my favorite combo.
I had never had the blue corn chip and it tasted similar to the multigrain variety to me. When I ate this chip, I paired it with a quick chickpea and cucumber salad for dinner and did not feel guilty one bit for eating chips with dinner, as these aren’t just any ol’ chips. These are gluten free, cholesterol free (naturally), and trans fat free chips without any genetically modified ingredients. And, there a good source of fiber with 3g per serving. In a chip! Some pasta and rice out there doesn’t even contain 3g of fiber per serving! I felt good about enjoying my tortilla chips with dinner and getting some fiber to boot.
FSTG also has some other incredibly tasty flavors: Olive, Jalapeno, The Works!, Chocolate, and Lime. I was sad to see they no longer sell the Buffalo variety. That was one of my favorites! Tied for second are the Olive and Jalapeno chips. The jalapeno have some serious kick and are great to make nachos with. I love olives and these chips have a perfect flavor that goes well with a bruschetta or hummus topping. In fact, all of the FSTG chip bags have suggestions for toppings on each variety of chips. And I love the ingredients in these chips – so wholesome! They’re high quality all natural ingredients, and are also certified Kosher and lower in sodium than many other chips. In the blue corn variety you’ll find ingredients like quinoa, sesame seeds, and organic blue corn. You can even see the ingredients in each chip.
I tried to control myself but I inhaled the blue corn bag of chips in only 4 sittings (there are 6 servings per bag) but figured I was getting more fiber with the extra large servings I dished out! If you like FSTG as much as I do, you can “like” them on their Facebook page too, and check out their website for product information, store locations, recipes, and nutrition facts.
And if you want to win your own sample pack of 5 bags of chips, just leave me a comment with the five flavors you’d like to try and don’t forget to include your contact info! (Sorry, no P.O. boxes please!). I’ll pick a random winner on Monday. Good luck!
