Saturday Review: The Better Chip | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I’m a huge fan of chips. They’re the perfect blend of crunchy and salty that makes my mouth happy happy. I mean, seriously, what’s better than a nice crunchy chip when the snack craving hits? Sadly, my beloved chips have become an infrequent luxury rather than my go-to snack since I began following a healthier way of eating. That’s why I always get really excited when I find a chip that I can easily fit into my eating plan!

As I was driving to work few weeks ago, I spotted a delivery truck on the freeway for a chip I’d never heard of before called The Better Chip. I hopped online as soon as I had computer access to check out their website. I didn’t see any retailer locations listed for my home state of California, but figured there surely had to be since I’d seen the delivery truck. I sent them an email inquiring about locations and they were kind enough to hook me up with some free samples and a couple of goodies to boot (t-shirt & reusable shopping bag)! How cool is that?!

In case you can’t read all of the flavor names in the photo, here are the samples I received:

  • Red Pepper and Salsa Fresco
  • Jalapeno and Sea Salt
  • Sweet Onion and White Cheddar

These chips are actually a tortilla chip rather than a potato chip. They’re made from a combination of fresh produce (onions, peppers, and jalapenos) mixed with while corn masa. You can actually pronounce all of the items on the ingredients list which makes them even better, in my opinion. The best part, they’re tasty, too! They definitely have a wonderful flavor without any artificial taste thanks to the fresh produce they use when making them. Each 1 ounce (28g) snack size bag comes in at 3 PointsPlus value on Weight Watchers. For those on other eating plans, they are 130 calories per bag. Check out this photo of the Sweet Onion and White Cheddar flavor.

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that the serving size is pretty small (about 9-10 chips). To me, that fact is definitely outweighed by all of the other great stuff these chips bring to the table (pardon the pun). Here are just a few of them:

  • Made from 100% natural ingredients with no preservatives
  • Each chip contains 40% produce (onions, peppers, or jalapenos)
  • Gluten Free
  • Cholesterol Free
  • Made from Non-GMO Ingredients
  • Contain no animal bi-products
  • Made in a completely nut-free environment.

These chips aren’t available nationwide yet, but hopefully they will be soon! You can check out their website to see if they’re in your area yet. If they are, I would definitely encourage you to give them a try. If not, and you don’t mind buying a large quantity, you can get them on Amazon. You can also like The Better Chip folks on Facebook to get all of their latest news and updates.
