Review: Beanfields Nacho

Last year I had the opportunity to try out Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips in a variety of flavors. (You can read my review here!) Well, they recently added a new flavor to the Beanfields family - Nacho! - and I was lucky enough to get to try it!

I love the Beanfields company, because they stand for everything I love - they are a family owned company that uses products grown here in the USA. They use non GMO ingredients - so no need to worry that you're eating "franken-food" as I call it. They are gluten-free, corn-free, cholesterol-free, trans fat-free, preservative-free and free of every single one of the FDA's eight most common ingredients that trigger food allergies.

Trust me, after recently having surgery and having to read every single nutrition label to make sure those items are not on the list, you're thrilled when there are companies out there that are not only completely transparent with what they do, but actually CARE.

So enough about the company, I'm sure you want to hear more about the new Nacho chips! Unlike most nacho flavored chips you'll find on the market, Beanfields are Vegan - the first chip to bring that cheesy flavor without the dairy. For those that live a Vegan lifestyle, going without anything cheese flavored is par for the course. You get used to it. But when you're stuck avoiding dairy suddenly after enjoying it for most of your life - well, it can get depressing, FAST.

Like other Beanfields chips, they are nice and crispy - different from your traditional chips though. If you're just used to those deep friend (chemical laden!) chips, it might take a couple of chips for you to get used to difference of these bean & rice chips compared to those. Now for the Nacho taste - certain brands are absolutely caked in coloring and fake flavor, Beanfields are not. The flavor is there, but it's not overwhelming. It has a good taste to it, not overly spicy either.

The first bag of Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips Nacho was gone in less than 20 minutes, so I'd definitely say my family gives it two thumbs up! ;) A six ounce bag retails for between $2.99 to $3.99, and there is a small snack size bag that's great for lunches that retails for $1.19 - $1.49, just depending on the prices in your area. You can find them at store like Whole Foods. (Local folks: the closest place to find them on this side of the bridge is Central Market in Poulsbo)

I received the product mentioned above in order to try it out and share my thoughts on it. All opinions are my own.

A coincidence? I just had my first taste of this crisp (chip for you) and it was everything you described!
As a corgi lover you will understand I am sure...mine give it the seal of approval!
Blessings and hope you will feel better very soon!
