I recently reviewed one of my two new favorite chips — Tostitos Multigrain Tortilla Chips. Here I will review the second, which is from Food Should Taste Good.
This multigrain chip, which is made with all kinds of healthy products, can also be used as a cracker, giving it a versatility that most chips cannot offer. It is cholesterol and gluten free and made from all natural products.
For those unfamiliar with the concept of Food Should Taste Good, it is quite simple. Pete Lescoe, its founder believes that food should be made from quality ingredients that are prepared in the best and healthiest way possible.
He especially liked the idea of taking natural, high quality foods and infusing them into a chip/cracker in a way that would keep the flavor intact and bring rich texture to the overall taste. Out of that dream, Good Should Taste Good was born. For more information about the company, visit their website at food should taste good (.com).
Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Chips are made with brown rice flour, evaporated cane juice, flax seeds, oat fiber, quinoa, safflower or sunflower oil, sea salt, sesame seeds, soy flour, stone ground corn and sunflower seeds.
There are roughly 24 servings in each 24-oz bag. That means one serving equals 1 oz, which is about 25 chips. There are 140 calories in each serving. Less than half of those calories ‘” 60 — are related to fat.
There is a total of 6 grams of fat within each serving. Of that among, about .5 grams represent saturated fat.
Unfortunately 18 grams of carbohydrate are also contained within each serving, which may mean those watching their carb intake will want to steer clear. Additionally, a serving contains 1 gram of sugar and 80 micrograms of sodium. That is one of the lowest sugar and salt intakes of any chip on the market today.
Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Chips offer some good things as well. A serving contains 3 grams of protein and fiber. It also contains 6% of the daily-recommended amount of iron and 2% of the needed calcium as based on a standard 2000-calorie diet.
These deliciously flavorful chips/crackers can be eaten alone or accompanied by equally delicious and nutritious sides like artichoke dip, brie, fresh fruit, hummus, spinach dip or white bean dip. Either way, I can almost guarantee that this is a chip you will be happy you tried.
Here is my summary review:
Taste: 5 stars. Food Should Taste Good is all about the taste and their multigrain chips prove that point. They are full of rich taste and wonderful texture. Additionally, they quickly fill you up so that you don’t over indulge. You may not even need a full serving.
Freshness: 5 stars. Next to taste, freshness is very important to the company. These chips are vacuumed sealed to prevent moisture leakage and ensure a crispy, tasty chip each and every time.
Green value: 5 stars. The bag is biodegradable and, even though it doesn’t say it, it appears to be made from recycled paper producta.
Variety: 5 stars. If you aren’t into multigrain chips, Food Should Taste Good offers a wide variety of other options including Buffalo, Chocolate, Jalapeno, Olive, Sweet Potato and The Works. The Buffalo chip is delicious with blue cheese, chili or vegetable dip. It is also great for accompanying a salad. The highly unusual Chocolate chip goes perfectly with banana, ice cream or peanut butter. Jalapeno is perfect with black been salad, cheddar or goat cheese, corn salad and of course guacamole. Olive chips taste amazing with feta or parmesan cheese or hummus. Sweet potato chips can be sprinkled with cinnamon, rubbed with apple butter or raspberry jam or served with fruit salsa. The works go with almost anything you can create.
Nutrition: 4 stars. No chip is 100% nutritious. The high carb intake could be a deterrent for some.
Packaging: 5 stars. Food Should Taste Good Muligrain Chips come in a biodegradable cream and black bag with brown trim. The company logo is featured on the front.
Ease of storage: 4 stars. Chip bags are never easy to store. They tend to be bulky in size and large in nature. This bag is no different.
Availability: 5 stars. Unfortunately, I have only found Food Should Taste Good Muligrain Chips available at Costco. That can be a problem for anyone who doesn’t have that store locally or who doesn’t possess a membership.
Price: 4 stars. These chips are a bit more expensive. They run a little over $6 for a 24-oz bag. However, the bag seems to last forever and the quality and taste of these chips, not to mention their health aspect, make them well worth the cost.
Product purchase probability: 5 stars. I love these chips. I will be back for more.
Final rating: 4.7 stars. These chips top the list!
5 stars – outstanding
4 stars – good
3 stars – average
2 stars – below average
1 star – poor
