Food Should Taste Good - Good News for Conscientious Snackers
I had the pleasure of trying a couple of great tasting varieties of tortilla chips this weekend. I am a health conscious gluten-free eater who has a difficult time finding room for chips!
Food Should Taste Good snacks are made without GMOs. Good news! They are certified gluten-free which is a must for those of us with celiac's and gluten sensitivities or allergies. A good deal of them are also completely vegan. YES! Please note that there are some flavors that include some animal products - cheddar, white cheddar and chocolate. If you are eating a totally vegan diet, you will want to check the packages carefully.
Food Should Taste Good products are made without artificial ingredients, including that horrible chemical MSG. They are also without trans fat, preservatives, and cholesterol. They do have fiber and real food ingredients. I wasn't thrilled to see some sugar on the bags, but at least it is in the form of evaporated cane juice. I can handle a little of that now and then because it is natural, not refined sugar.
I tried two varieties: Sweet Potato and Multigrain. I love them both. the sweet potato flavor tastes very good and does not leave a salty or greasy taste in my mouth. The multigrain flavor is bursting with seeds and great taste.
You might wondering how the cost of these snacks compare with the more mainstream brands. They are a little higher, as you might expect for better quality snacks. They are less than most of the certified gluten-free products on your grocer's shelf, however. I found them at $2.99 at my local Meijer store.
You can find more information their website.
