The front of the packaging of Athenos (Original) Baked Pita Chips has a bright blue sticker on it that reads, "50% less fat than the leading potato chips." Well, since crispy snacks like potato chips are my weakness, I only too happily threw this product in my grocery cart to try it out.
Their website describes Athenos (Original) Baked Pita Chips as "the ultimate dipping chip ... made from freshly baked pita bread, baked and seasoned to perfection ... with 50% less fat than the leading brand of potato chips and no cholesterol." What I found was a tasty, golden brown, sturdy pita chip, so good for the eatin'. Not too salty, not not too oily and just as good as World Classics Trading Company Sea Salt Baked Pita Chips (Review). My problem was when it's hard to eat just one serving, which is about 11 chips (28 grams).
Each serving provides 120 calories, 4 grams of total fat (6% of the daily value), no saturated or trans fats, 270 mg sodium (11% of the DV), 2 grams of fiber (8% of the DV), less than 1 gram of sugars and 3 grams of protein.
The ingredients list of Athenos (Original) Baked Pita Chips reads wheat flour, sunflower oil, salt, sugar, yeast, with ascorbic acid, rosemary extract and citric acid to preserve freshness. To overcome my problem of eating more than 1 serving at a time, I started having with StarKist Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water (Review) - lots of protein and crunch to make a nutritious snack.
A 9 ounce bag (255 grams) cost me $2.50, and I would buy these instead of regular potato chips any day of the week.
