Chips are certainly not just chips, because I do eat my fair share a little too often. Maybe having stretchy pants isn’t really a good thing after all, but to help with the feeling of “oh-man-did-I-just-eat-that-entire-bag”, sometimes having those healthier options (or seemingly healthier) makes it seem less of a situation full of gluttony.
Levant Falafel Chips are gluten-free and are made primarily with a blend of corn, chickpeas, fava and rice flours. They are also lightly sweetened with honey. At first, the spices and flavor really didn’t taste like much. It was quite bland in flavor for a bit, in fact. But after a few more bites and a few chips later, there is an increase in flavor, and slowly the herbs start to kick in. However, it’s quite mild in flavor. So, these falafel chips work well if you’re looking to pair chips with dip, but do not have the chips overpower the dip.
