There are many reasons why you should eat potato chips, but there are also many reasons why you shouldn't. One of them is the fact that there are many other options available—healthier ones, crunchier ones, fruitier ones, more addictive ones. It's time to put a stop to potato domination (but yeah, we'll still eat them when they're there).
Bare Fruit's Crunchy Granny Smith Apple Chip, P225, Healthy Options
These brown curls won't be winning any beauty contests. They look like apple wood chips, to be honest. It gets chewy after the initial crunch, releasing that honeyed type of sweetness you get from dried fruit—plus a dash of tartness. These chips are baked without any added sugar, preservatives, or fat. It's just fruit through and through. It's an acquired taste, but one that rewards you with a very mature interpretation of sweetness. And hey, it's 100% organic.
Glories Sweet Potato Kettle Chips, P175, Healthy Options
These are perfectly cooked kettle chips. They have that heavier, crackling crunch that works so wonderfully against the heavier sweet potato. We also love how the slices are generously gigantic. These gluten-free babies have a slight hint of sweetness and a little bit of spice. They come in Chipotle, which are good, but our tip is to get the Sea Salt and just let the kamote shine.
Turbana Plantain Chips, P250, Healthy Options
Think of your run-of-the-mill banana chips. Now think of these plantain chips. They're no-sugar-added things, which is glorious for junk food-fiends who look for salt, not sweet. They're starchier than banana chips, which may take some getting used to. Plantain is a blank canvas, and this one is dressed in a lot of garlic.
Chomperz Crunchy Seaweed Chips in Jalapeño, P245, Healthy Options
Nori is a game-changing snack, but Chomperz takes it to a different level. These powdery chips curl up from its time in the fryer, cupping a crazy amount of that jalapeño powder. The earthy umami flavor of seaweed is subtle, but that heat is definitely not. You'll be asking for water after a handful, so take it one at a time.
Good Health's Crispy Original Apple Chips, P169, Healthy Options
The giant promise offering 30% less fat than potato chips is certainly a huge pull. The red apples give it a less pronounced flavor, subdued but nice. It's crunchy at first, but like all apple chips, they turn out chewy in the end. It's sweetish, but only enough that you'll have no problem finishing a bag. Maybe two?
