Beanitos Back to School Healthy Snack Review

By now, back to school is either a reality or a soon-to-be reality for those of with kids.  And even if you don't have kids, you know that summer is drawing to an end.  Sometimes it is hard to find snacks that are healthy, taste good, and are something that your kids will eat.

Enter BeanitosBeanitos®, The Original Bean Chips™ were created by people who want snacks that are not full of empty calories.  Beanitos began back in January 2010, and it is a low glycemic, high fiber, gluten-free, high protein, great-tasting snack.  There are several different flavors.


My family and I had the opportunity to review a big box of these chips, and they were definitely a hit.  My daughter loved the cheddar cheese, and I loved the chipolte BBQ.  My mom found the pinto bean rather bland, but with a dip, it was amazing.  The black bean had more flavor than the pinto bean.  Taste was certainly not sacrificed.

My favorite thing about these is that they are filling!  When you eat something that is made with beans and has such a significant amount of fiber, you really can't go wrong.  While the calories are a little higher than other similar snacks, it is the right kind of calories--not empty!

The uses for these chips are endless.  You can put them in your kid's lunches or save them for afternoon snacks.  In my case, I will also be taking them for my lunch.  I'm sure my mom will be snacking on them as well.  I look forward to dipping them in hummus and yogurt dips!

I was wondering where I could buy these locally, and I was happy when I discovered that I can get them at our local supermarket!  What I can say is that if a place like Yelm has them, there is no doubt you can find a place near you.  Be sure to check out where to buy on their site.

I received the above products through Sublime Media Connection in exchange for an honest review. In no way was I asked to give a positive review.
