I am participating in a campaign sponsored by The Pitch List and Simply 7 Snacks. I received an assortment of complimentary Simply 7 Snacks in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for this post. Please see my Disclosure Policy for more information.
It’s no big secret that I love to snack. It’s also no secret that I don’t always make the best snack choices. I never met a chip or a cookie that I didn’t like. (Except oatmeal raisin. Blech.) I’ve passed my love for snacking down to my kids, too. So when I was given the opportunity to review all-natural, better-for-you snacks from Simply 7, I jumped at the chance!
The name Simply 7 comes from the company’s 7 core standards:
- 0 Grams Trans Fat and No Cholesterol
- No Artificial Colors or Flavors
- No Additives or Preservatives
- Gluten Free Ingredients
- All Natural Recipes
- Simple Ingredients
- Simply Delicious
Simply 7 is built on the principle that the consumer should be able to identify the raw vegetable, fruit, grain, or legume that their snack products come from. So their chips are made from Hummus (chickpeas), Lentils, Pomegranates, and Quinoa.
I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about trying chips that were made from something other than potatoes or corn. But overall, this snacka holic was pleasantly surprised. My family had the opportunity to sample several varieties of Hummus, Lentil, and Pomegranate chips. The Quinoa chips are brand new, and I’d love to review them in the future as well.
Hummus Chips: The Hummus Chips were my family’s favorite by far. They are made from chickpeas and come in 4 flavors: Sea Salt, Roasted Red Pepper, Spicy Chili Pepper, and Tomato Basil. My kids liked the Tomato Basil best, but I love the Spicy Chili Pepper – slightly sweet with enough kick to burn your face off. The chips are nice and crunchy – similar in texture to a corn chip. I would definitely buy these in the store as a snack, and I wouldn’t feel guilty about keeping them in the house.
Pomegranate Chips: The Pomegranate Chips have the best texture of the three kinds of chips. They are most similar to a traditional potato chip – crunchy and ridged. But I couldn’t quite get over the idea of eating pink chips. Also, the seasoning was a bit mild for my taste. The predominant flavor was the sweetness of the pomegranate. I might have enjoyed these more if they’d been more heavily seasoned. Still, if you’re looking for a mild, crunchy, sweet & salty snack, I’d give these a try. They come in Sea Salt, Black Pepper, and White Cheddar.
Lentil Chips: The Lentil Chips seem like a lighter version of the Hummus Chips – closer to a popcorn chip than a corn chip. The flavors are great – Sea Salt, Creamy Dill, Jalapeno, and Bruschetta. My favorite was the Creamy Dill, but all four flavors were tasty. Still, the Hummus Chips were the clear winner of the bunch.
