Late July Multigrain Snack Chips

Not too long ago, I overheard someone in my grocery store say "Ugh.  Organic food.  Don't want that!"  She turned her cart quickly to avoid the organic food aisle.  The truth is that the days of shoe sole taste and cardboard box texture organic food are long gone. 

We all have our favorite brands, organic and not organic.  Late July is a brand that I've found to be consistently good.  They make delightful mini peanut butter sandwich crackers.  They even come in little bag sizes that are perfect for school lunches.

So when I saw that they were making chips, I was eager to give them a try.  Like their other products, the chips are organic.  The great news is that they're multigrain and made with non-genetically modified grains, which are hard to find in chip land.  But that's not all.  They're certified gluten-free, and don't contain synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers, trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

For those watching their weight, the news isn't too bad, either.  About 13 chips contain only 110 calories.

Now, with all that going for it, your expectations of something snackingly decadent are soaring downward, aren't they?  Yeah, mine, too.  I should admit here to an addiction to that orange powder on Doritos.  I'm not all that easy to please.

Late July knocked this one out of the park.  I love these chips!  I've tried the Dude Ranch Chips which have a slightly tangy, salty taste and the Mild Green Mojo chips which leave a little kick behind in your mouth.  I'll buy them both again.  And again and again.
