For my crunchy fix, Glenny's Soy Crisps for a crunchy fix. However, I had the opportunity to try Stacy's Cinnamon Sugar PIta Chips the other day, and I decided to review them and see what everyone else thinks about this treat. I picked up a 1.5-ounce bag for $1.25 and looked forward to trying it.
Stacy's Pita Chips are made from "all natural pita" and then twice baked. I'm used to having soy crisps that have a light, airy texture, so the pita chips were pretty different - harder. When I opened the bag, I got a strong, delicious whiff of cinnamon, but as I bit into one, I could tell that this wasn't exactly what I was going for, texture-wise. However, the cinnamon and sugar flavors were perfect.
Each 1.5-ounce package of Stacy's Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips provides 200 calories, 11% of the daily value for total fat but only 3% of the DV for saturated fat, 180 mg sodium (7% of the DV), 8% of the DV for fiber, 9 grams of sugar and 4 grams of protein.
I know people who are Stacy's Pita Chips enthusiasts, but honestly, I don't really get it. The taste is just okay, nutrition facts aren't that great - natural doesn't mean low fat - and the ingredients list , while not bad, starts off with enriched wheat flour, organic sugar and sunflower oil.
Overall, I liked the flavor of Stacy's Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips but would have been happier with a lighter chip. These probably won't replace Glenny's in my heart (and stomach) for my go to chips. Still, if I'm feeling for a slightly sweet and cinnamony chip, Glenny's MultiGrain Cinnamon and Sugar Pastry Crisps doesn't have a high rating either, so I would probably stick with Food Should Taste Good Cinnamon Tortilla Chips.
