Route 11 Sweet Potato Chips

Potato chips are looked at like the devil's spawn because of the high fat & low nutritional value - so are other types of chips more ... wholesome? Well, when I saw Route 11 Sweet Potato Chips at the grocery store recently, I decided to check it out to see if these were any better than regular potato chips. The packaging says these chips are lightly salted, all natural, wheat and gluten free plus made using all natural sea salt.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 28 grams
Calories: 140
Total Fat: 7 grams, 11%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram, 5%
Sodium: 55 mg, 2%
Carbohydrates: 19 grams
Fiber: 2 grams, 8%
Sugars: 4 grams
Protein: 2 grams

These chips certainly are mighty tasty. They're sturdy yet crunchy, and are slightly sweet and slightly salty at the same time - it sounds like an odd combo, but somehow it all works together and a yummy chip is the result.

Each 1 ounce (28 gram) serving of Route 11 Sweet Potato Chips provides 140 calories, 7 grams of total fat (11% of the daily value), 1 gram of which is saturated fat (5% of the DV), 55 mg sodium (6% of the DV), 4 grams of sugars, 2 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein. Plus there is 120% of the daily value for vitamin A. When you compare these chips to Lays (Classic) Potato Chips, they come out on top. A 28 gram serving of Lays provides 160 calories, 10 grams of total fat (16% of the daily value) and 170 mg of sodium.

The ingredients are simply sweet potatoes, peanut oil and/or high monounsaturated sunflower oil and Real Salt (sea salt). I bought a 42 gram bag of Route 11 Sweet Potato Chips - unfortunately, that is 1.5 servings, meaining 16% of the daily value for total fat - definitely something to watch out for.

So nutritionally, I would prefer these sweet potato chips over a bag of Lays Classic Potato Chips, but something like Glenny's Sea Salt Spud Delites Review has less calories and fat, and is just as tasty.

Have you tried sweet potato chips before? Did you like it?
