When I tried Food Should Taste Good Cinnamon Tortilla Chips, I knew I would be going through all the other flavors because that one was just too delicious. Since Tanya had already reviewed Food Should Taste Good MultiGrain Tortilla Chips, I decided to go for the bolder Chocolate variety, which I picked up at my local grocery for $2.69.
Has anyone ever had chocolate chips? I hadn't, and didn't know if it would be good, but I was still willing to give it a try because the folks at Food Should Taste Good seem to know what they're doing. I was expecting a sweet crunchy snack, but after munching on a few, I would just like to tell anyone who hasn't tried this before: do not think that this will satisfy any cravings for sweet. The naked chip is tortilla based, but unfortunately the cocoa flavor does not completely convince me I'm eating something sweet. That's not to say the chocolate chip isn't a great tortilla chip - salty, crunchy, with a subtle flavor of cocoa - but, if I was craving something sweet, this simply wouldn't do. I'd put it in the salty family category.

The ingredient list conveys the company's philosophy of that food will taste good if you use quality ingredients that are natural and high in quality: stone ground corn, high oleic sunflower oil and/or safflower oil, semi-sweet chocolate powder (sugar, chocolate), evaporated cane juice, corn bran, dutch cocoa powder, vanilla extract & sea salt.
Over the course of a few weeks, I kept encountering information about the company Food Should Taste Good. One way or another, I found my way to their website and I oohed and aahed about several of the flavors like Sweet Potato, Cinnamon, and Chocolate. Well, when I saw the chips on sale at my local grocery store for $2.69 I couldn't resist, and into my cart when the Cinnamon flavor. Food Should Taste good says, "all natural ground cinnamon baked inside a rich corn tortilla chip creates an entirely new and delicious flavor profile that will satisfy both sweet and savory cravings." With a description like that, I couldn't wait to see if these chips could handle an actual dessert craving.
Despite being touted as a dessert, the "naked" chip is corn based so it still has the great crunch of a traditional tortilla chip. However, the cinnamon chip still manages to have a very distinct sweet and cinnamon flavor. The chips are similar to Stacy's Cinnamon Sugar pita chips, but crunchier and without the mess of sugar all over your hands (or clothes and the surrounding area in my case). Given that the Food Should Taste Good chips feel and taste less oily than Stacy's, I was surprised to find the nutritional information almost identical.
