Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips

Chips are Chips, Right?

Chips are usually categorized by their composition. Potato chips. Tortilla chips. Corn chips.

Something tells me that we will never see wide adoption of "bean chips." Just a gut feeling.

Yet, since going gluten-free and looking for gluten-free products, I have seen more and more bean chips available.

Now, why would this be correlated with me looking for gluten-free products?

I have no idea. There is no good reason for these two occurrences to be correlated.

Yet, I can't ever remember seeing bean chips on shelves ten years ago. Or even five years ago.

Maybe it it is just their time to come on stage?

I don't know, but when I see products that announce their gluten-free-ness, I am willing to try them.

Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips, Pico de Gallo flavor

I found these bean and rice chips in a main-stream grocery store in California. Not a health food store. Not a specialty store. Not a convenience store.

A plain ol' grocery store. I have not seen this brand before, so I was interested in trying these.

Anything pico de gallo flavor has got to be good, right?

Well, let's not be hasty, here.

But in this case, it is a safe statement to make!

These chips are good and not too "beany" tasting.

And they look like tortilla chips, but a bit darker in color. That's fine with me, as long as the taste is good.

The taste on these is fabulous, thanks to the pico de gallo flavoring. And they didn't skimp on putting the flavor on each every chip. 

I hate when they skimp on flavoring.

Not these chips. Full of flavor.

And crispy and crunchy too! Just the way chips should be.

These are so good, you should run right out and buy yourself some if they are in your local store. If they aren't there, look for them when you travel.
