I’m impressed. I really am. Anybody want to take a guess as to what’s impressed me? (Psst, look at the picture!) Yep, the answer is a new chip called Beanitos, made from pinto beans and black beans. Beanitos recently sent me a box full of chips to try and give my opinion on. Now, I’m impressed for two reasons. One, I really like getting boxes full of food to eat. Two, the chips themselves really wowed me! Keep reading to see what has me so excited about Beanitos!
Did you see what the label in the picture above says? It says Beanitos are certified low glycemic, are corn free, gluten free, high in fiber and protein and best of all (to my way of thinking), they have no GMOs (aka genetically modified organisms)! In a nutshell, they’re a snack I feel good about giving to my children, a healthy alternative to the usual cookies/potato chips/frozen-appetizer-type snacks they always ask for. The 1.25 oz. bags (which were just launched this year) are the perfect size for satisfying after-school hunger or even throwing into lunchboxes. But…do my kids like them?
I’ll answer that question with my oldest son’s opinion: “OH MY GOSH, THESE ARE GOOD!!!!” (Yes, I’m shouting, but that’s exactly how he said it.) These chips appealed to all five of my kiddos and, since I have two picky eaters, that speaks volumes.
I did get the chance to try all four flavors of Beanitos — Chipotle BBQ, Cheddar Cheese, Pinto Bean and Flax, and Black Bean. The Chipotle BBQ and Cheddar Cheese were my kids favorites, but I favored the Pinto Bean and Flax. It had almost a nutty flavor, while the Chipotle BBQ and Cheddar Cheese tasted like, well, Chipotle BBQ and Cheddar Cheese.
The fourth flavor was the Black Bean. It is the perfect chip to pair with some salsa, much healthier than tortilla chips made from corn. Seeing my family eat healthy, GMO-free chips with the fresh vegetables in the salsa made me feel like I was really doing right by my family.
I encourage you to do your own research on Beanitos, and they’ve made it easy for you to do so in a variety of ways:
