A couple of weeks ago I ran to Darwin’s to pick up some pita chips. (Big shout to Darwin’s, home to some of the tastiest sandwiches I’ve ever tasted.) To my surprise they were all out. But they had falafel chips, which I had never heard of or tried. The package says it’s “the chip for hummus dip” so I decided to check them out. Well, I had no idea what was in store! These chips are FABULOUS! In fact, I would go as far as to say I absolutely LOVE them. Oh how I love them, let me count the ways:
- They are made with whole beans and canola oil, which means they are a deliciously and nutritiously balanced snack with more protein, fiber, and healthy fats than a pita chip.
- The spices on the falafel chips are totally scrumptious. I adore spicy food though, so if you prefer a more mild snack you may want to check out Trader Joe’s version of falafel chips. They are good but not as tasty as the Flamous brand, in my opinion.
- Couple them with hummus, guacamole, or bean dip and you’ve had a super quick snack or appetizer.
