If you are on the look-out for healthy gluten-free snacks, you have to try Baked Lentil Chips by the Mediterranean Snack Food Co. I received baked lentil chips in these flavors: Cucumber Dill, Parmesan Garlic, Cracked Pepper, Sea Salt and Roasted Pepper. In addition, I received Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt Baked Lentil Crackers.
Mediterranean Snack Food Co. Baked Lentil Chips Review
I brought a couple bags of these chips and a box of the sea salt lentil crackers to my mom’s house for a birthday party.
I have to admit, when I imagined how these baked lentil chips would taste, I was a bit skeptical. Think about it, how tasty could “baked lentil” be? Upon my first taste, I was pleasantly surprised! The chips are crispy and have a nice crunch. The flavor of the lentil, garbanzo and adzuki beans isn’t overpowering, it’s very subtle.
I like the texture of the chips – you can see the bubbles that formed from the baking process throughout the chips, and yet these chips are strong! (Don’t you hate it when your chip breaks right into the dip?) These are the perfect chips for dipping into hummus and the scoop-like shape is perfect for dipping.
While I like the other flavors, my personal favorite is Cucumber Dill. Dill fans will fall hard for the Cucumber Dill! I don’t think I have ever come across a snack chip with this winning flavor combination. (These didn’t make it to the party, because I ate the whole bag. They are that good.)
I did get some other feedback. My brother-in-law liked the Parmesan Garlic and my sister liked the Rosemary. There is a flavor for everyone.
I put the sea salt lentil crackers right in the middle of the crackers in that heart-shaped basket. These were great with a little pub cheese!
Not only do they taste great, the Baked Lentil Chips are healthy too!
