Food Should Taste Good: Review & Giveaway!

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed!

****

I’m a firm believer that there are certain things everyone likes. And when you meet someone that insists they don’t like it, they’re a liar or crazy; or maybe both. One of those things is chips. So when Food Should Taste Good contacted me and asked if I’d be interested in trying some of their chips to review and subsequently give away, I couldn’t resist. I mean, if I did, wouldn’t that just make me a crazy liar? I’ll do whatever it takes to stick to my guns! [Scroll to the bottom for giveaway details!]

I was chipped!

I was chipped!

The box of chips arrived on a Friday afternoon – the perfect opportunity for ultimate chip snacking. The box was labeled with a “fragile” sticker, which I thought was clever… no one likes broken chips! I immediately ripped open the box and was thrilled with what I found: four bags of chips including sweet potato, barbecue,  and classic salt and pepper. They’re all certified gluten-free and Kosher, and you can see all their varieties here. But the bag that caught my eye? The chocolate ones. Yes, you read that correctly – chocolate tortilla chips! As soon as  I saw them I knew what was to become of those chips… dessert nachos! I always snack on savory things like nachos and popcorn and think to myself “it would be really fun to experiment with a sweet version…” yet I never get around to making them. Thanks to FSTG, that all changed.

With a name like Food Should Taste Good, it’s no surprise that I’m about to tell you the chips taste good. In fact, they’re awesome; and I know I’m not alone in thinking so. I started with the sweet potato chips and had them alongside a wrap with dinner. They were super thick and crunchy (something I love in a chip), and also had a distinct sweet potato flavor without just tasting like a dried sweet potato or just a tortilla chip. And even though I’m not a health food nut, it was nice to know I could enjoy a hefty amount (serving size is 18 chips) without feeling guilty! I sampled all of the flavors that were sent, but saved the chocolate for my special concoction. These dessert nachos are SO easy to make and really fun. And depending on what you have on hand, you can really use whatever ingredients you have. I have every intention of making them again in the future, and even changing it up a bit!

    I am kind of boring, just give me sweet potato tortilla chips with chipotle hummus and I am happy 🙂

    I love reading your food blogs – they always inspire me to try to get creative in the kitchen. Also, this sounds fun. And it makes me want nachos, but I’m torn between dessert nachos (sounds fantastic and I want to try!) or just a standard savory nacho (most recent I made was delicious – blue corn tortilla chips, leftover chicken breast shredded, low fat sharp cheddar, homemade guacamole with lots of cilantro, and salsa). And now I’m hungry. 🙂

    have you ever made dessert nachos with apple slices instead of chips? i have done this a few times with granny smiths cause of the bitterness and love it!! i use lots of gooey toppings like caramel, chocolate sauce and marshmallow topping and sprinkle crushed heath bars on top. the apples make me feel like this is healthy…

  4. OMG Dessert nachos! Brilliant idea. I would love to try that.

  5. I want to try these! They look amazing!
    I am a nacho fanatical – the more toppings and the messier the better. Load them up!

    I love blue corns nachos covered in grilled veggies, beans, salsa, jalapenos and guacamole! But I also have had “dessert nachos” made from apple slices topped with melted chocolate, chocolate sprinkles, nuts (almonds and walnuts) and marshmallows. So good!

  7. i’m not a big fan of nachos, but definitely would be a vegetarian version. Black beans, monterey jack cheese, pico de gallo, sour cream. Last weekend I spent at my son’s track meet. This weekend I’m running in the Nike Women’s 1/2 in DC!!
