Popchips Barbeque Potato ChipsPopchips is usally a safe bet for a tasty, not too oily chip. We have already given the thumbs up to Popchips Cheddar and Popchips Original but the Popchips Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips Review is just ... aiight! I decided to try the Popchips Barbeque Potato Chips to see if I would discover another favorite.

Popchips are not fried or baked. Instead, they say, "we start with wholesome potatoes, add a little heat and pressure, and pop!"

These chips have a very nice barbecue flavor, just what you would expect, and there is a pleasant slightly spicy kick after you've even a few chips. These were so yummy that I was glad that I had bought a single serving bag - I surely wouldn't have stopped if I hadn't.

Popchips Sour Cream & Onion Potato ChipsPopchips say, "We don't fry it (unhealthy). We don't bake it (undelicious). We take wholesome potatoes, add a little heat and pressure, and pop! It's a chip. The only thing added is a flavorful blend of seasonings for a snack so delicious and crispy, you won't even notice it's (we hesitate to say) healthier." Hey - I don't think baked chips are 'undelicious' nonetheless, we have to agree about the deliciousness of Popchips Cheddar and Popchips Original. I wanted to try more flavors, so I picked up a bag of Popchips Sour Cream & Onion.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 23 grams (18 chips)

I've had Sour Cream & Onion chips before, and I surprised myself by liking the intense flavor. The Popchips version has a much milder flavor, which I liked, but not as much as others I've had. The chips are a little thicker than regular potato chips, but somehow more airy - I guess that's the "pop" in "Popchips." There is a little residue that gets left on the fingers - but not much. I have to admit this was not one of my favorite Popchips varieties because of the mild flavor.

Each bag (23 grams) provides 100 calories, 11% of the daily value for sodium, 1 gram of fiber and protein plus 2 grams of sugars.

Popchips CheddarI've tried the Original Popchips and I liked them a lot. Given the range of flavors offered by the brand, though, I figured it was a shame not to try the other ones, so I opted for the Cheddar flavor. I picked up a one-serving bag for $1.29 at Duane Reade - pricey but really not too bad for healthier chips.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 ounce (21 chips)
Calories: 120
Total Fat: 4 grams, 6%
Saturated Fat: 0.5 grams, 3%
Sodium: 290 mg, 12%
Protein: 1 gram
Carbohydrates: 20 grams
Fiber: 1 gram, 4%
Sugar: 1 gram
Protein: 2 grams

I scanned the ingredients list first and it was nowhere near as simple as the Popchips Original: Natural Potato Ingredients (Potato Flour, Potato Starch), Safflower Oil and/or Sunflower Oil, Seasoning (Whey Powder, Salt, Cheddar Cheese [Pasteurized Milk, Cheese Cultures, Enzymes], Maltodextrin, Yeast Extract, Natural Flavors, Lactic Acid, Buttermilk Powder, Cream, Palm Oil, Safflower Oil, Butter Powder, Disodium Phosphate, Turmeric Oleoresin, Annatto Extracts, Onion Powder, Sodium Citrate, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid), Rice Flour, Salt, Soy Lecithin (Processing Aid). I figured many of those probably went into the cheesy coating, so I decided to do my best to put the thought out of my mind and enjoy my chips.

Popchips OriginalI have a new love in the land of salty, crunchy treats, and that love is Popchips. I've seen these in the grocery and with flavors like Original, Barbecue, Sea Salt & Vinegar, Salt & Pepper, and Parmesan Garlic, they sounded delicious. I finally caved today and picked up a bag of the Original Popchips for $1.29.

Popchips is all naural, and they say, "Never Fried. Never Baked." So how the heck do they do it?!

We came up with a chip like no snack aisle has seen (or taste bud has tasted). That's because we found a way to pop all the flavor in while keeping fake stuff and more than half the fat of fried chips out. Thanks to the magic of popped. Popping is a way of making our all-natural chips. We start with the finest ingredients, add a little heat and pressure, along with a little snack magic. And pop! It's a chip.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 ounce (22 chips)
Calories: 120

Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 260 mg, 12%
Protein: 1 gram
Carbohydrates: 20 grams
Fiber: 1 gram, 4%
Sugar: 0 grams
Price: $1.29

All I can say is, yum woohoo! These chips are like Glenny's Sea Salt Spud Delites in that they're light and crispy, but these are a bit more substantial. They're delicious and salty, the perfect combination of baked goodness and hefty crunch.

Each 1 ounce serving of about 22 chips provides 120 calories, 12% of the DV for sodium (260 mg) and 1 gram of each fiber and protein. The sodium content is a little high, considering Baked Lays Potato Chips has half that amount (but is not as delicious).
