Enjoy Life: New Products!!!

So Festively Packed!
I was once again approached by Enjoy Life, to test some of their latest products - this time their line of Plentils.

Plentils are a vegan's answer to flavored potato chips, except that these chips are made from Lentils and contain none of the 8 most common allergens: wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish & shellfish.  They also happen to be gluten-free!  Add to that minimal, pronounceable ingredients and these chips are a dream come true!

To my dismay, these chips are seriously addictive!

In fact my boyfriend and I polished off 4, yes FOUR, 4 ounce bags in one weekend.  Oiy!

So you can guess what I think of these chips, they are seriously good!

I loved three flavors: Dill & Sour Cream,  Garlic & Parmesan & Margherita Pizza!  These really pack a flavor punch with this lighter than air chip.  Flavors that are typically off limits to a Vegan Girl like myself are once again a possibility!  They don't taste spot on to their real counterparts, but they are delicious nonetheless.  With these I don't feel so left out come snack time.

I thought the Light Sea Salt was okay.  After trying the other three samples, these chips were a little bland.  However, if you're craving traditional potato chips, this flavor is your answer.

I just have one issue, the oil.  Every single flavor contains one to two types of oil (Safflower or Sunflower Oil).  A healthy diet just doesn't need added oils, an unhealthy diet doesn't need them either.  These chips would be perfect if they would just drop the oil, but I suspect it is necessary to get the crisp, lighter than air texture (sigh).  And I suspect it's the added oil(s) that is driving the rather high fat content on these chips.

However, for those of you not concerned with oil, these are a most excellent vegan snack!

Keep It Healthy!
