Trader Joe's Vegan Chips: Part II

It's Super Bowl Sunday and you are probably huddled up on the couch with your chips and soda. No Super Bowl party for me this year, but let's pretend. Known to change up their product selection (check out Part I), Trader Joe's has a couple new chips for me to try and this is the perfect day for it!

Before anything else, I have to say that I'm a huge Fritos fan and my one gripe is that they aren't organic. So I was pretty excited to see these Organic Corn Chip Dippers and tore them open right in the store (not really). The flavor is actually tame compared to Fritos. I know they are supposed to replicate Fritos Scoops size-wise, but flavor-wise the salty, oiliness wasn't there. Not to say they were bad, just not what I expected. It's still a great organic chip for dipping.

Trader Joe's Vegetable Root Chips are made of sweet potato, taro, batata and parsnip pieces. I like the wide variety of earthy flavors. Also, aesthetically they will brighten your spread.

Trader Joe's never fails to surprise with new and interesting products. Trader Joe's Crunchy Curls are pretty innovative. It's a lentil and potato puffed curl. Texture-wise I would compare it to a super puffed Cheeto or something similar. It had strong potato flavor, which I found delicious.

If you are lucky enough to have a Trader Joe's by you, go grab some of these chips and tell me what you think!

  1. I like any sort of scoop dipper for optimal filler. my fave of TJs chips are either their ridged sweet potato chips or the pita chips.

  6. Whoa! I just randomly googled "vegan chips" cuz I just recently started going vegan and my craving for some Doritos and Cheetos and kettle cooked noms and etc etc etc is killing me, and the first link that google gave me was your blog. And we both live in Omaha! I visited your website and was surprised to find out that Omaha had a vegan group. I'm gonna have to hit up TJ for their chips after work today :)

  7. I review a lot of vegan products that are from Trader Joe's and I love most of them! There have been a few that were bad, but for the most part I really enjoy them! I'm not a vegan but no reason I can enjoy them! www.clubtraderjoes.com
