Hippie Snacks has added two new products to its lineup: Cauliflower Crisps (in Original and Classic Ranch flavours) and Avocado Crisps (in Guacamole and Sea Salt). I love trying new products especially when companies make us think of consuming vegetables in a new and different way.
In the last year, Cauliflower has been the carbohydrate alternative and can be found in pizza crust, rice replacement and now crisps. I don’t mind this since my doctor told me to cut down on sugars like carbohydrates as I’ve developed gestational diabetes during my pregnancy. I was excited to try these crisps to see if it would quell my cravings for chips.
The cauliflower and avocado are seasoned with sea salt, seeds, and herbs, and baked for a crunchy texture. Both types are made with real ingredients you can actually pronounce, with 5g of protein in each serving.
Cauliflower Crisps (Original)
This is baked with real cauliflower, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and a touch of sea salt. I liked this as you get the flavour of cauliflower and would go really well with a dip like hummus. This was my personal favourite as its so versatile.
Cauliflower Crisps (Classic Ranch)
The ranch flavour really goes well with the cauliflower crisp. Easy to eat a whole bag too.
Avocado Crisps (Guacamole)
This was my husband’s favourite. It is baked with real avocado, pumpkin seeds and a touch of cayenne pepper among other spices to give you that guac taste.
Avocado Crisps (Sea Salt)
This is made with real avocado and seasoned with sea salt, seeds and herbs. I like the addition of the seeds as it gives it a nice crunch. The avocado taste is very mild.
We have seen veggie chips pop up in stores in the last few years, but what I like about Hippie Snacks and their version is that it has few ingredients, which you can actually pronounce. I’m Team Cauliflower, but the husband is Team Avocado. We can agree to disagree, but both kinds were good. It’s all about personal preferences.
