Snacks that make you go, “hmmm.” My head was tilted a little to left and I thought I heard the faint sound of C&C Music Factory when I came across my latest find. I’m familiar with the brand Simply 7. They make pretty tasty lentil and hummus chips that I devour on occasion. But I was totally intrigued by this new offerings of pomegranate chips! They have sea salt, black pepper and white cheddar in this line.
Pomegranate chips are designed to complement the sweet and satisfying taste of the pomegranate. Pomegranates have been treasured for their delicate beauty, taste, color, and health benefits for centuries. Simply 7 took their flavor and nutrients and baked it into an all natural bite-size chip.
I grabbed the Sea Salt flavor due to my obsession with sodium. Once you bite into this little pink crisp, you do get the salty essence with a good crunch. Then you notice a floral, almost sweet, note from the pomegranate. The taste is very unique and you are compelled to taste one after the other to wrap your head around this fruit chip mash up.
Now if you’re really adventurous, you might try these new chips with a roasted red pepper & pomegranate dip!
