Food Find: Popchips

I’ve been hearing chatter about chips for awhile and I FINALLY saw them at my local grocery store. The only flavor they had where Barbecue but according to the popchip’s site they also come in original, sea salt & vinegar, sour cream & onion, salt & pepper, cheddar and parmesan & garlic.

I broke into my bag while putting the groceries away. Measuring out a serving, I was quit impressed how many you got. It seemed like a little more then the baked chips I normally buy.

They are super crunchy, light, and (the BBQ at least is) very flavorful. I normally grab soy crisps or baked tortillas to curb my chips cravings but these are actually more like actual chips. Like soy crisps but thinner, lighter and made of potato. If that makes sense. ;)

All seriousness, they are yummy. I hope to try some other flavors. I hear they are at Target. Maybe, they’ll have more of a selection.

Nutritional Information for a 1 oz. (28g/about 22 chips) Calories, 120, Fat, 4.5g, Fiber, 1g, WWP 3 (2.5)

    I love these chips! Seriously. Love. I’ve had a few kinds. Favorite is original potato, but if I ever get my hands on some cheddar potato that might change.

    Yum I love Pop Chips! I can’t be trusted with the larger bags but I love the single serving ones! I got a variety pack of single serving bags from Amazon with about 6 of the flavors. My favorites were BBQ, Cheddar, and Sour Cream and Onion. The original were good; and the Salt & Vinegar and Salt & Pepper flavors were my least favorite but still tasty, if that makes sense.

    I want to try the Parmesan Garlic ones!

    I love the regular salt and pepper variety dipped in salsa. Soooooo good.

    FYI – I just found the Trader Joe’s brand of popped chips this weekend. They are awesome! Same nutritional info as the “Popchip” brand.

    I love the cheddar flavor. One of the little shops in my office building carries the single serving bags – they’re awesome!

    I love love love pop chips, and the black pepper flavor is by far my favorite! I can’t find them anywhere in normal sized bags, only the snack sized.

    They are so good!! My clients absolutely love them. I have tried the BBQ & Sour Cream & Onion and loved both. What’s great is that they are sold at most places in NYC now (drug store, convenience store, supermarket, etc).

    Hey Roni….I just had something very similar that I picked up at Trader Joe’s that is the same “popped” chip concept….can’t remember the exact name but I know the whole bag was only 6 points :) Just Fyi

    I’ve been hearing so much about these chips! They do have them at Target. In fact, they were giving away samples the other day, but they ran out right when I walked up :(
    Still have not tried them. I’m thinking I might have to try the Parmesan Garlic ones!

    Salt & pepper is my fave flavor, followed closely by barbecue. Target sells the bigger bags and they’ve expanded to many Costco stores now.

    I’ve written about them a few times, and the people who run the company are very nice.

    I’ve only had the BBQ but I LOVE them!!! It’s hard to stop with one serving though!

    I love the Popchips I’ve tried … I think they were just plain. I’m going to have to buy some more of those on payday, now that you’ve reminded me of their existence!

    Hi Roni! I’m behind in reading your blog, so I am going to spend sometime reading about what’s up with you! Charlie told me about the Blog event in March, sounds like fun!

    I must be living in the dark, because I’ve never even heard of those chips. I can’t wait to find them. I WILL have to count them out and put the bag away, because I will eat the whole bag!

    Love em! I have bought Regular, BBQ, and Black Pepper at our local Fresh & Easy — not sure if you have those markets in your area. We just got them within the last year or so around here. The Black Pepper are by far my favorite!

    Oh Roni I can’t believe you haven’t tried them yet, I LOVE popchips. I like to get them in cases of 100 calorie packs since I’m much better when they are pre-portioned :)

    Hi Roni! My favorite are the salt & pepper. Delicious and def hits the chips craving.

    Love the Vinegar and the Salt & Pepper (have also tried plain and BBQ- good, just not my favs). The Trader Joes versions are good too.

    I can never get healthy chips here. Other than Banana and Sweet Potato chips. These seem delicious!

    never tried them, but speaking as a designer – i LOVE the packaging! :)

    Love them, all flavors are great, and are a good subsitute for a chip lover like me, however, I liked them so much I ate the entire bag, therefore can not have them in the house!!! Like you BBQ is the best to me!

    I’ve been hearing lots about popchips lately. Just bought my first bag this weekend at Target – they had all the flavors. I chose cheddar. They were good but reminded me more of rice cakes than chips – maybe it was just the cheddar. I like Trader Joe’s version better. TJ’s BBQ Popchips are the best.

    I have tried both Popchip’s brand and Trader Joe’s brand and I prefer Trader Joe’s. I LOVE potato chips and these chips have made it easier for me to make a healthier choice and still enjoy the crunch and flavor of chips!

    I have a question…when you order the variety pack do you get a bag of each one of the flavors? I like to try each flavor to see which one is my favorite. I have had the pepper ones and I ‘loved’ them! A girlfriend of mine had the pepper ones too and she loved them too. I hope that I will get an answer back soon so that I can order some.
