Are There Tasty, Healthy and Gluten Free Snack Chips? ~ Simply7 Review

I have a snacking problem... seriously, it's bad. I love to munch on chips during family movie night, all afternoon, because I'm bored, when I walk through the kitchen, and well, you get the idea. Know that since I am nursing a nine month old right now, that does have a lot to do with my appetite being over the top, but I need to try harder at keeping my snacking choices on the healthier side.

*I received these products for reviewing purposes. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own. see disclosure.

While on the hunt for healthier chips that also taste great, I came across Simply7 Chips. These are exactly what I have been looking for, and they taste so delicious. Every ingredient in Simply7 chips is natural and gluten free, a big plus! They also follow seven wonderful core standards for their products hence the name Simply7. 

The Simply7 core standards are the following.
  • 0 Grams Trans Fat and No Cholesterol 
  • No Artificial Colors or Flavors
  • No Preservatives
  • Gluten Free Ingredients
  • All Natural Recipes
  • Simple Ingredients
  • Simply Delicious
There are currently four varieties of Simply7 chips, and I was sent three to taste for this review- Quinoa, Lentil, and Hummus. The one variety that I haven't tried but plan to is Pomegranate. 

After trying these three different types of chips in four different flavors, my whole family decided that we couldn't choose a favorite. We equally love the Quinoa and Hummus chips. The Quinoa has a very light, crispy texture, and are high in protein. They are, of course, gluten free, but also Non GMO Project verified and Vegetarian too. The four flavors we devoured were Sea Salt, Sour Cream and Onion, Barbeque {voted 2014 Men's Health Best Chip for Men}, and Cheddar. All of these flavors are Kosher and the Sea Salt and Barbeque are also Vegan. Personally my favorite was the Cheddar, but I also really like the subtle but tasty Sea Salt flavor. My husband and daughter claimed the Barbeque Chips were the very best flavor. My son just said he loved them all, but took over the Sour Cream and Onion as his own.

The Hummus Chips from Simply7 are a bit thicker and crunchier in texture than the Quinoa. They are also shaped more like a shell, and that is actually what our seven year old son calls them- his shell chips. He loves, loves, loves these. The Hummus Chips four flavors are Sea Salt, Roasted Red Pepper, Tomato Basil, and Spicy Chili Pepper. The Hummus Chips have 50% less fat than your average potato chip, are gluten free, Non GMO Project verified, and also Vegetarian. They are made with chick pea flour, and to be honest, I was happily surprised that my daughter and son would eat them. Oh and eat them they sure did. We enjoyed the flavors, but I will say that the Spicy Chili Pepper had a bit too much of a kick for my kids. My husband and I have crunched away on this bag by ourselves.

The Lentil chips have more of a puffy texture, and less of the crispy crunch that we really enjoyed in the Hummus or Quinoa. Their flavors include Sea Salt, Creamy Dill, Jalapeno(quite the kick to this one), and Bruschetta. This gourmet lentil snack has up to 50% less fat than potato chips, and is gluten free and Non GMO Project verified as well. The Sea Salt, Jalapeno, and Bruschetta are also Vegan. This was not our favorite since it had more of a puffy texture that didn't crunch like we prefer in our snack chips, and personally I was not big fan.

I have to say after trying 3 varieties of the Simply7 chips, that they have done a wonderful job of keeping with their 7 core standards. I have actually searched out a local store to find these chips which will now be a staple in our home. If you would like to find a store to purchase Simply7 Snack Chips you can find a store locator on the website. We are making our grocery list up tonight, and my son wanted to make sure his "shell chips" were on it, and not to forget he needed more Sour Cream and Onion Crispy chips. Interpreted that means "Grab me my Tomato Basil Hummus Chips and the Sour Cream and Onion Quinoa Chips from Simply7, Mom".  Think we have found our healthier chips to keep on hand!
