Kale is king. It has reigned for a few years now as the supreme raw food chip. Of course, other vegetables were going to want a slice of the action. So kale got competition!
I love brussel sprouts. I love parsnips. I heard they were being ‘chipped’. I had to sample them.
Wonderfully Raw chips were developed by a chef named Sequoia, a graduate of the Living Light Institute who began making raw foods after healing herself of Type 11 Diabetes through diet.
Generally, they were good. But, honestly, not all of the flavours rocked my world, but some defiantly generated a tremor! All of the line up contain raw coconut among their ingredients. Coconut is not only delicious but a metabolism boosting super food. Guilt free healthy snacking. Each pack is only approximately 120 calories and 8g of fat (but it is easily digested, healthy MCLA – medium chain fatty acids). According to Dr Oz coconut improves thyroid function, too. Vegan. Gluten free. Soy Free. Sugar Free.
Brussel Bites – Chili Pumpkin Seed Crunch
The chipotle heat is so good mingling with the slightly bitter brussel and the toasty flavour of the coconut. Loved!
Brussel Bites – Tamarind Apple Crunch
I could not detect the tang of the tamarind but the ginger and coconut were a divine mix. Loved!
Snip Chips – Cheezy Herb Truffle
I was excited about this flavour combination. However, I didn’t love this one. Too ‘parsnippy’ for my liking and not enough truffle and cheeze flavours.
Snip Chips – Chipotle Lime Cilantro
More chipotle flavour, please! If you don’t like heat then you may enjoy the subtlety of it. Otherwise, a good flavour.
Snip Chips – Dill Pickle
a lovely buttery taste with a gentle dill flavour. Loved!
So..the clear winner..does King Kale need to be nervous?? No. Competition is good. I think the healthy snack market has room for them all! I will definitely be buying these again.
Wonderfully Raw sell their Snips and Bites in many natural food markets, Whole Food and grocery store locations in North America.
