Cinnamon Spiced Beet
Sweet Potato Pie
OMG this was so good. It literally was melt in your mouth sweet potato goodness. I love that there's cloves, nutmeg and ginger in it because it makes the sweet potatoe flavour so robust. Its literally a sweet potato pie for your pocket. This one is by far my favourite.
Ingredients: Organic Sweet Potatoes, Organic Apples, Organic Cinnamon, Organic Ginger,
Organic Nutmeg, Organic Cloves.

I am seeing all sorts of claims for healthy chips these days and its hard to know which ones actually live up to their claim. I am a huge chip fan and I could eat a bag of Doritos in one sitting but I try very very hard to stay away from those kinds of chips because its just a bag of high calorie crap.
When I received samples from Flamous Brands I was really shocked at how healthy these chips actually are. I spent a few minutes reading the bag and then thinking to myself can falafel chips actually taste good and also be this healthy? These chips are gluten-free, USDA Certified Organic; Non-GMO; Vegan; Kosher; no Trans Fat, Cholesterol, Coloring, Dairy, Nut, Wheat, or MSG. Pretty impressive right? The chips are a delicious blend of 15 vegetables and herbs starting with corn and chickpeas, and then layered with other vegetables.
I am a fan of falafel's but a falafel chip sounded a little questionable at first but of course I opened them up immediately. I had my boss with me and we both dug in. I looked at her for the first response and she says “OMG Nat these are good!!” minutes later we were scarfing down the whole bag. I definitely was taken back by these chips as I did not expect them to taste THIS good. They were so crunchy and full of flavour, but not sickening at all. They tasted very authentic and I literally had the whole office loving them. One of the girls actually went out a few days later and found them at Whole Foods and bought a bag.
They also come in spicy falafel which was my fave because of the added heat and they come in zatar flavour which is an oregano-based mixture of herbs. I made some hummus to go with these chips and its now a weekly staple in the house. Good bye tostitos and salsa, hello falafel chips and hummus!
