Like a bold tortilla chip, these spicy falafel chips are a fun way to explore the exotic flavors of the East Mediterranean. Made with organic corn, beans, veggies and spices, they’re packed with flavor and also rich in protein, fiber and antioxidants.
I received these falafel chips in my January Goodies Box.
Because these chips are on the spicy side, I chose a white tea to enjoy with them – white tea has natural cooling properties and helps to calm the palate after eating something spicy! I found this Silver Needle tea from Enjoying Tea to be just the thing to sip while munching on these delicious chips!
What I Think:
Having tried the “Original” variety of falafel chips from Flamous, I was pretty sure that I’d enjoy the spicy variety as well. But I had no idea that I’d enjoy them as much as I do!
I think I may have just found a new favorite chip. These are unbelievably good. They have a nice, satisfying crunch and a similar texture to a tortilla chip. They are hearty like that … but they’re thinner than most tortilla chips – which I really like – and they are not greasy. I even did the white paper test … I opened the package and poured the chips out onto a piece of white paper to see how much residual grease the paper would absorb. Usually with most conventionally produced chips, there are grease spots, usually quite a bit! But with these there are only the tiniest grease spots. And more importantly, they don’t taste greasy either. They just taste delicious.
This particular variety is SPICY, and as someone who favors spicy things, I like that too. They certainly don’t need a salsa dip … but you might want to consider a ranch dip or sour cream (or perhaps a cucumber yogurt dip might be delicious!) to help cool things off. Me … I like the spice. It warmed me up! Delicious!
My Final Thoughts:
These are absolutely delicious. I prefer them over “traditional” chips like tortilla/corn chips or potato chips … I prefer the texture, the flavor and the fact that they are not greasy like those other products. These are just … really REALLY good.
