Chick Peas in a Chip

Chip week rolls on! Today’s chip clip is on Regenie’s Falafel Thins, Bare Naked flavor.

According to the packaging, these chips contain a, “natural blend of corn, fava beans and chick peas”. The manufacturers to on to tout the product’s “fiber – protein – great taste”. Well, 2 out of 3 ain’t bad….

For 140 calories you get 140 calories, 7 grams of fat, 140 mg sodium, 3 grams fiber and 4 grams protein. So yes, there is certainly fiber and protein in these chips – but the taste leaves more than a little to be desired, and it certainly isn’t great. Think stale potato starch texture with an off-putting scent of past-its-prime Indian food.

Unfortunately, as much as I wanted to like them – the unappealing aroma of these chips overwhelmed their respectable fiber and protein content. They were dry with a vaguely nauseating marjoram and cumin aftertaste.

Despite the valiant effort Regine’s, it appears the world is perhaps not yet ready for a ground fava bean and ground chick pea with added wheat gluten and oat fiber chip. Your nutrition profile is respectable, but the flavor and texture components need would benefit from that last magical wish from the genie in the bottle.
