Simply 7 Review: Healthy Hummus, Lentil, and Pomegranate Chips!

Healthy Chips!

Wait, is that an oxymoron?

No!! Not with Simply 7 Chips, it's not!

Simply 7 snacks are healthy chips and come in Lentil, Hummus, and Pomegranate varieties. Yum!

Simply 7 chips are healthy alternatives to potato chips and tortilla chips, which are often fried and contain lots of fat. In contrast, Simply 7 snacks have 0 grams of trans fats and no cholesterol! They're also FREE of additives, preservatives, artificial colors, and artificial flavors. Plus, Simply 7 snacks are made from gluten-free ingredients.

We are loving eating our Simply 7 snacks as healthy alternatives to snack foods! Our first taste was at dinner, where we tried the Hummus Tomato Basil and the Pomegranate Black Pepper varieties. Our kids (ages 2 and 4) loved them, especially the Hummus Tomato Basil!

I'm always impressed with a food that's a healthy alternative to typical fried snacks, especially when my kids approve! Here is a picture of my son, gobbling up some of the chips as an after-school snack.

Here is a list of the flavors we received and are enjoying:
Pomegranate Sea Salt
Pomegranate Black Pepper
Pomegranate White Cheddar
Hummus Sea Salt
Hummus Spicy Chili Pepper
Hummus Tomato Basil
Hummus Roasted Red Pepper
Lentil Sea Salt
Lentil Bruschetta
Lentil Creamy Dill
and Lentil Spicy Jalapeno

I have also found it very convenient to keep a bag of chips at my office for between-meals snacks. I really loved the Pomegranate Sea Salt Flavor and shared it with my fellow grad students--there were mixed reviews from them about the fruitiness of the chips. I think their comments were mostly because it is an unusual flavor combination to have the slight tartness of pomegranates in a chip. I really enjoyed the chips and we ended up eating the whole bag.

On a trip to a conference with these same folks (and some of our professors), we munched and crunched through a delicious bag of Lentil Sea Salt Chips. Everyone approved very much! I also got requests for information about where to buy some in stores. You can check out if Simply 7 Chips are sold near you by visiting their website. They also have a $1 off coupon on their site right now!

The texture of these chips ranges from grittier-Frito-like to smooth, puffy, and light--like many of the new vegetable chips. The flavors and seasonings are quite strong, while the actual flavor of the chip itself (pomegranate, hummus, or lentil) is more subtle. We enjoy the lightness and crunchiness of the chips! My favorites have been the Sea Salt flavors and the Bruschetta. These snacks also taste great with dips like hummus or ranch!

My family definitely approves of these Simply 7 chips! They are really tasty and are healthy alternatives to regular salty snack foods. Please check out Simply 7 on Facebook and Twitter and thanks for reading my Simply 7 review!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
