I am a total snacker. There are always chips, crackers, fruits, and cookies on hand in my kitchen. So when the opportunity arose to try Pasta Chips, I jumped on it. The kind folks at Pasta Chips.com freely sent me over the five flavors of the Pasta Chips: Sea Salt, Alfredo, Marinara, Garlic Olive Oil, and Spicy Tomato Herb and below is my personal opinion of each one. They also want to send 3 of my readers the same gift box of Pasta Chips! Make sure to enter the giveaway below!
The Pasta Chips are made of semolina flour and oven-baked thin. It’s like a cracker chip that is full of flavor. A big plus is that they have 60% less fat than regular potato chips. So I didn’t feel guilty at all when I devoured the bag of Marinara Pasta Chips! They are also low in cholesterol, saturated fat, and have 120 calories per serving!
The box was all fancy wrapped protecting the deliciousness inside. The kind folks sent me over the five flavors of the Pasta Chips: Sea Salt, Alfredo, Marinara, Garlic Olive Oil, and Spicy Tomato Herb. Each different flavor of chips are inspired by seasonings from a region in Italy. Here is my honest review of each flavor:
Marinara: My favorite of all five. The chips were full of yummy spices that were inspired by Naples. They have a nice tomato tang to it but not heavy. Completely addicting and could easily be eaten by itself…on the couch…watching tv…for breakfast.
Sea Salt: These reminded me of a wheat thin. They are simple yet delicious. Since they are the plainest of all the chip flavors, they are perfect to pair with dips like hummus, french onion, or even some slices of cheese. The inspirational region is that of Puglia.
Garlic Olive Oil: If you love garlic than these are definitely for you. The Italian region of Abruzzo is the taste profile region of these pasta chips. At first the garlic was a bit overwhelming for me, too strong for a chip. But I tried again the next day after seeing my DH devour half the bag. They aren’t bad at all, once you know the garlic level you are about to enter.
Alfredo: The actual flavor of Alfredo go lost somewhere before entering these pasta chips. Inspired by Rome, the spices lacked any creamy cheese flavor it was going after. The initial taste was not appealing and the powdered coating was a bit too salty for me.
Spicy Tomato Herb: My least favorite of them all. They have a strong tangy flavor that wasn’t spicy nor tomato. It is a bit off putting and lingers in your mouth. It really fell flat for me and not wanting more of this flavor from Calabria.
What I like you may not, and what I didn’t enjoy, you may love! So give these a try and enter below to win your own box of the 5 flavors of Pasta Chips.
