Most of the time I eat well. However, I do like to snack. And when I do…it’s usually not very healthy (yes, I’m talkin ’bout you, Mr. Potato Chip!) So needless to say, I’ve been looking for a snack that is both healthy and satisfying and I’m happy to report that I’ve found it! Introducing Jicachips, chips made from the fabulous root vegetable jicama. Packed full of fiber, jicama has 50% less carbs and calories than a potato and when baked it is transformed into a crunchy, healthy and delicious snack! Jicachips are available in six flavors, five of which are 100% vegan; sea salt, smoked bbq, chili lime, spicy soy ginger and cinnamon sugar.
Each bag has four servings of veggies and only 100 calories! Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it? But I know what you’re thinking…how do they taste? Well, the lovely folks at Jicachips sent me samples of their chips and a few stood out as my favorites.
I am usually not a fan of bbq flavor, but with the Jicachips Smoked BBQ I am now a convert! The balance between the subtle natural sweetness of the jicama with the smokiness of the bbq is the perfect combination. The Jicachip is not your average chip. It has a definite crunch, but it is also slightly chewy which I really enjoy.
Coming in at a very close second is the Chili Lime flavor. Slightly spicy with a hit of tang from the lime, these chips are packed full of flavor.Now if you have a sweet tooth, which I of course do, you must try the Cinnamon Sugar flavor! Yum, yum, yum. Not too sweet, but sweet enough to wrangle my afternoon hankering for something sweet.
So do yourself a favor and head on over to Jicachips. Your taste buds will thank you!
