Stacy's Pita Chips are one snack that I don't think I could ever give up ... but I must confess that I don't buy them too often because the bag will be gone in 2 days, no matter how hard I may try. So here's another confession. When I saw Stacy's Simply Naked Bagel Chips quietly resting on the shelf below and I threw a bag in my cart - I thought, well, the Stacy's brand name should ensure that these are good, but since they're bagel chips and not pita chips, perhaps they will not be so good that I will want to eat the whole bag.
Well, I was wrong ... about the second part. These all natural bagel chips are amazing. They are larger than I was expecting, being more oval-like than circular. Furthermore, they are not nearly as rock-hard as some bagel chips that I have sunk my teeth into before. Each perfectly thick round is firm, while still possessing a light, crispiness; making them more fun to enjoy than those that have the potential of breaking a tooth. Why are these bagel chips so unique? Well, to answer that question, I went to the back of the bag: "We take bagels, slice them vertically into bite sized chips, add all-natural seasoning, then bake them for the perfect crunch. Its 'basic' made into something more." The 'Simply Naked' flavor is simply salted; and I wouldn't have it any other way. It is not an overwhelmingly salty flavor, but simply a touch of seasoning (and a hint of sweetness) to make your taste buds want more.
Each 15 chip serving of Stacys Simply Naked Bagel Chips provides 130 calories, 7% of the daily value for total fat, 13% of theDV for sodium, 1 gram of fiber, 2 grams of sugars and 4 grams of protein. The simple ingredients that make up these simply delicious chips are: enriched wheat flour (whole wheat may have provided more fiber), sunflower oil and/or canola oil, organic sugar, wheat gluten, sea salt, malt extract and compressed wheat.
I paid a mere $2.50 for a bag with 8 delectable 1 ounce servings of Stacy's Simply Naked Bagel Chips (at CVS of all places) and they now hold the same status that Stacy's Pita Chips has ... so good that they will not last long.
