Way Better Snacks Review

Sunday, March 31, 2013 Posted by Dina N

March is National Nutrition Month. Calendar aside, I happen to think that nutrition must be front and center twelve months a year - and not just during those three square meals a day.

It's no secret that Americans love to snack. According to a recent survey by The Hartman Group, these days we are snacking more than ever - an average of 2.3 snacks a day. Whether we do it in the car, at the office, or over the sink, it still counts.

This month, my family got to celebrate better snacking with Way Better Snacks. Or, as I call them, Way, Way Better Snacks. These delicious tortilla chips are the first of its kind to include sprouted ingredients. When I think of sprouting, I used to imagine bean sprouts and little else. Now I know that sprouted may mean chia seeds, flaxseed, black beans, quinoa, broccoli seeds and daikon radish seeds in my new favorite tortilla chips.

What's the big deal about sprouting? Well, thanks to Way Better Snacks, I got educated on that, too. Sprouting delivers many benefits, such as increased vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Your body digest those foods easier and better absorbs their nutrition. I am all about making my food count. If you are curious, you can read more about sprouting in their "Benefits of Sprouting" section.

Way Better Snacks come in six varieties: Simply Sunny Multi-Grain, Simply Sweeet Potato, Simply Beyond Black Bean, Simply So Sweet Chili, Simply Unbeatable Blues and No Salt Naked Blues. In every variety, you can clearly see the sprouted seeds in the chips. I inhaled the bag of multi-grain in no time flat. They are absolutely amazing. The crunch, the flavor, the taste - there's something so irresistible about these chips, it's hard to share them with anyone. I thought there was no way I could like the other varieties as much but I was wrong. I loved the Simply Sweeet Potato and Simply Beyond Black Bean, dipping my way through bowls of salsa and guacamole. But they are just as delicious plain.

My husband, who is a fan of all things spicy, ate almost the entire bag of Simply So Sweet Chili in one sitting. I managed to steal a chip or two, and completely understand why he likes them so much. The spiciness is just right, not too mild, and not too hot.

My kids got a handful of the No Salt Naked Blues in their lunchboxes one day, and started asking about them every day. My entire family is a fan of Way Better Snacks now. I just wish they came in single serving bags. As it is, one bag contains 5 and a half servings, and it is just too hard to only eat a few.

Last but not least, Way Better Snacks are Certified Gluten Free, Non-GMO, Certified 100% Whole Grain, Kosher, and Vegan. They contain no trans fats, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives,

Way Better Snacks are available at numerous retailers nationwide, including Whole Foods. I have not seen them in my neighborhood stores yet but I hope this will change soon. Did I mention that my family loves them?
