My family has a major potato chip habit. And I do really mean…major. I’m not even joking. My husband will eat half a bag of chips most evenings (after a full dinner, with a second helping more often than not) while watching TV or surfing the web. I have absolutely no idea how he is not a cast member of “My 500 Pound Life,” that’s how many chips he eats. He eats so many chips we should buy stock in Lay’s. Well, I think you get the idea, right?
I like chips, though on a much smaller scale. I don’t eat them every day, and when I do, I get a small snack bowl to exercise some sort of portion control.
When I heard about Bare® Snacks Crunchy Banana Chips I was pretty excited to try them. Because I love bananas and crunchy snacks, so to have the best of both worlds sounds pretty awesome!
I’ve tried other brands of banana chips and have, for the most part, found them pretty flavorless. This brand is the only one I’ve tried that are crunchy and packed with so much flavor! There are three varieties: Simply Baked Crunchy Banana, Cinnamon Crunchy Banana and Cocoa Dusted Crunchy Banana. All three flavors are so incredibly delicious!
I do have to say the Cocoa dusted variety took me a little bit by surprise, because I accidentally inhaled some cocoa dust and sent myself into a small coughing fit the first time I tried them. But, after that I knew not to breathe at the same time I was shoving them into my mouth and all was good. Very good. As a matter of fact, just talking about them now is making me want to hit the pantry and pull out the only bag that’s left in there and snack on them as I write this post. Excuse me for a moment…
