Rating: ©©©© chips (lip-smacking)
We’re pretty sure that we’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again, Sun Chips’ groundbreaking, and now iconic, multigrain chip texture, and shape, changed the way we looked at chips, and we will always love them dearly for that!
Sun Chips new ‘Veggie Harvest’ line of chips apparently are made with real veggies, in addition to the usual wholegrains.
Initial thoughts – these taste a lot, seriously a lot, like regular Sun Chips. In other words, great news!
Believe it or not, the very first ingredient listed on the back of the bag – dried yellow peas. DRIED YELLOW PEAS?!? YUM, right? Yeah right! And yet somehow, these really just taste like any other Sun Chips. Wow, very impressive.
If we were to nitpick about anything about the texture, then we might say that these chips have a slightly harder crunch than regular Sun Chips. Maybe something about the baked peas provides a more dense and tough texture?
There is a lot-lot-lot of seasoning coating these chips. Very salty, but also tasty. These chips are so heavily seasoned we are wondering if Sun Chips is perhaps trying to cover something else up?? Peas perhaps?
All the standard ranch flavors are present – garlic, sour cream, onion, dill. It really tastes like ranch dressing. FYI – this is not Sun Chips’ first venture into the ranch flavor field. In fact, their original Peppercorn Ranch flavored chips are some of our most favorite Sun Chips of all-time!
Long story short, if you want to include more veggies into your chip diet then Sun Chips new ‘Veggie Harvest’ chips are lip-smacking way to do that!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
