Yumm, I think these are the gluten free equivalent of Sun Chips! Not only are they shaped like sun chips, but the flavors are fabulous. My family is addicted to these tasty gluten free multigrain chips from Michael Seasons. Right now they are on sale on their website for $1.99.
Michael Season’s MultiGrain chips comes in three flavors: original, cheddar and honey chipotle. These chips are light and crispy, and since they are baked there is no greasy residue on fingers and plates. Each serving provides 12 grams of whole grains, 110 calories, 4 g. of fat, 3 g. of fiber and 2g of protein. What’s also nice: no hydrogenated oils, no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors.
I enjoyed these chips with sandwiches, with soup, and for snacking. I loved that they were light and didn’t leave me with a heavy feeling in my stomach. The flavors are robust and balanced.
Here’s the break down on the flavors:
Original Flavor: mild and salty, the most subtle of the three flavors, pairs well with anything.
Ingredients: whole grain corn meal, rice meal, sunflower oil and/or corn oil, oat meal, oat fiber, sugar, modified corn starch, black bean powder. ground sunflower seeds, salt
Cheddar Flavor: No fake cheese flavor here! These chips are coated with a coating that is made from actual cheddar cheese, and it tastes like real cheese. The flavor is rich but not overpowering and my kids couldn’t keep their hands out of the bag.
Ingredients: whole grain corn meal, rice meal, sunflower oil and/ or corn oil, oat meal, oat fiber, sugar, modifoed corn starch, black vean powder, ground sunflower seeds, rice flour, salt, cheddar cheese (pastsurized milk, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes,) dextrose, whey, matodextrin, yeast extract, garlic powder, buttermilk, butter (cream, salt), citric acid, paprike extract, disodium phosphate, natural flavors, spice, lactic acid, sunflower oil, onion extractative)
Honey Chipotle Flavor: Holy Smokes, these chips have a serious KICK! To my sensitive palate, I had tears in my eyes and a burning in my throat, but in a good way. At first you taste a hint of sweetness, then the spice kicks in. the flavor from the chipotle and smoke is incredibly yummy, and even though I was gulping my water like crazy, I couldn’t stop eating them.
Ingredients: whole grain corn meal, rice meal, sunflower oil and/or corn oil, oat meal, oat fiber, sugar, modofoed corn stacrh, black bean powder, ground sunflower seeds, rice flour, maltodectrin, salt, dextrose, dry honey, onion powder, red pepper powder, chipotle pepper powder, garlic powder, natural hickory smoke flavor, citric acid, natural flavor, annato extract
Overall, I love these light and crunchy chips. not only do they taste good, but I like that I get all the flavor with less fat and sodium
Pros: light, crispy, flavorful, healthier option when compared to traditional chips, great price!
Cons: Can’t think of any!
