Simply Sprouted: Way Better Snacks #CheersVoxBox Review {Healthy Non-GMO Snacking}

Pin It

Yesterday, I shared a brief post on the new Cheers to You VoxBox that I received, and how excited I was to be part of the unveiling. What's even more enjoyable is the chance to share my experience with the goodies that were inside.

I like to consider myself a foodie, so when I have the opportunity to try anything that is...well...edible, I'm all in! One of the products that was included in my Cheers to You VoxBox was a snack size bag of Simply Sprouted Way Better Snacks, Simply So Sweet Chili Corn Tortilla Chips. To be honest, this had been the very first time that I'd even heard of the brand.


Jim Breen, Founder of Live Better Brands had this to say about his product:
It all started with a simple vision to create a better snack. We wondered, wouldn’t it be great to go back to a time when the food we ate was actually nutritious and good for you. You know, before decades of environmental harm and mega food conglomerate processing wiped out most of the nutrients which used to be abundant in the food your grandparents ate. To make products you could feel good about eating again and sharing with others. Well, with that in mind, we decided to do just that.
 

What makes these tortillas different than the rest? For starters, they are made with wholesome sprouted seed ingredients such as broccoli, flax, quinoa, chia, and radish, making them very nutrient hardy and much more easier to digest, since the outer protective layer of the seeds are removed. They're also vegan, certified gluten-free, certified kosher, and contain no trans-fat.

The fact that these are also Non-GMO Verified is a huge deal for me, especially since the main ingredient is corn (a big product in the GMO industry). GMO's are everywhere. Sometimes it's difficult to decipher what companies are for them and which ones are against them. I know these products are probably lingering about in my kitchen, but we do try to pick up products with Non-GMO Verified labels when we can. I'm personally all for having mandated labeling on each and every food product out there. A customer should always have a right to know what's in their food, and if there's supposedly nothing to worry about, then why hide it? Am I right? 



Okay, so I may have gone on a little rant there, but my initial point was until we can get a mandated label for food products, it's nice to know that we still have the Non-GMO Verified Project. Brands like Way Better Snacks, who receive the Non-GMO Verified label, are the ones that will continue to keep me as a loyal customer.

As far as taste, these tortillas are really good! Gone are the days when healthy meant not having any flavor. The Sweet Chili has a tiny kick, but nothing that's too overpowering since it also has a bit of sweetness in there. These are honestly full of flavor. I just love biting into those healthy sprouted grains–yummy! Plus, each serving (11 chips) has 500mg of Omega-3 essential fatty acids.


Other Tortilla Flavors Include:
  • Simply Sweet Potatoes
  • Simply Beyond Black Beans
  • Simply Sunny Multi-Grain
  • Simply Tangy Mustard & Onion
  • Simply Naked Blues (no salt added)
  • Simply Spicy Sriracha
  • A Nacho Above
  • Oh My Sweet Punkin (yes, it's spelled that way) Cranberry
  • Everything Nice Apple Cinnamon Spice

I am all about healthy snacking, and these Way Better Snacks are perfect for those times when I need a little something to curb my appetite. Sadly, they seem to be only available in the Midwestern areas. Since I am on the East coast this is not great news for me, but luckily they do have an online store. After doing a little research, I was also able to locate their products on Amazon. I will definitely be picking more of these chips up. Since they contain clean, pure ingredients, they're a snack that I can totally feel good about eating.
