  So since we are on the subject of Earth Day this week and about what products we can use to help keep the planet healthier, we decided it would also be a good time to mention a brand that will help keep us healthier too...Beanitos.

  Beanitos aren't just a regualar chip.  Beanitos are just what they sound like they are...Bean chips (and crunch).  I just had to quote their site here  "Every Beanitos snack is a lean bean PROTEIN machine, packed with rich, delicious flavor and amazing wholesome goodies like FIBER and ANTIOXIDANTS. With all this tasty goodness, it may be hard to chew with such a big smile."  #vivalabean

  Each serving of Beanitos boasts 5 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber.  They are free of MSG, gluten, sugar, artificial colors, cholesterol, preservatives, artificial flavors, trans fat, corn, and GMO's.  

  With such a large variety of flavors there is sure to be a flavor for everyone.  Beanitos was kind enough to send us each a variety of flavors and here are our thoughts:

  Mommy in GA:

The Original- These smell like roasted beans, I like the saltiness, definitely a different texture than a regular tortilla chip, not bad plain, very good with salsa.  I really liked this one especially with the salsa.

Honey Chipolte BBQ- Smell is pleasant, the bbq is stronger, good amount of seasonings, very barbequey, kind of wish the flavor was a little stronger.  I am not a huge fan of BBQ chips so I was surprised that I liked these.

Restaurant Style- I am going to assume that these were pretty good as I never even got my hands on the bag, the kiddos devoured the whole thing without me : (

Nacho Cheese- I just didn't like these, maybe my expectations were a little too high due to my love for Doritos, my taste buds were slightly disappointed.

Hint of Lime- The kids must have liked these too as I also never go to try one.

Garden Fresh Salsa- The smell isn't really that strong like I had expected, first bite these seem a little plain, I did taste a hint of sweet and salty, not great but is ok, don't care for them plain.  These were better with salsa but still not my favorite.  

Sweet Chili & Sour Cream- These smell ok but I really expected a stronger smell, I really like these, just enough sweet chili and hint of sour cream to even it out, not too spicy and not too sweet.  These are my favorite!!!  No salsa required : )  

and Mac N' Cheese Crunch- Here is the third product that went MIA during this product testing, I really wish I could have tried these as cheese curls are one of my favorites.

(Note:  Mommy in GA does have five kids so occasionally a product or three, especially food, can mysteriously go missing.  We apologize for the inconvenience : ) )

  Mommy in PA: 

The Original- Honestly these taste like Triscuits, I was a little worried to try these but was pleasantly surprised.  I hate using another brand in my review but that is honestly the best way I can describe them.  I think these would be delicious with some kind of queso : )

Honey Chipolte BBQ- The flavor of these is really good, kind of addictive actually.  This could easily take the place of my regular bbq potato chips : )

Restaurant Style-  These are delicious, especially with salsa.  You won't even be able to tell you are eating a bean chip, these taste almost like a tortilla chip, nice saltiness, just a little easier to chew : )  These were my favorite for dipping.

Nacho Cheese-  My daughter and I liked these ones.  Nice strong cheese flavor.  Not exactly like the other brands but that's ok cause they were still tasty : )

Hint of Lime- These were definitely my least favorite.  I am not a fan of lime on chips I guess, maybe these would be good with a complimenting salsa???  

Garden Fresh Salsa-  These were also delicious with salsa.  I also liked these ones plain, great tomato flavor.  My daughter tried one but didn't like it because she doesn't like tomatoes...oh well, her loss : )

Sweet Chili & Sour Cream- Ok so I thought I liked these the second I put one in my mouth...but just that quick my tongue said no way, this is just not my kind of flavor I guess : (

and Mac N' Cheese Crunch- Not too bad but I just couldn't get past the texture difference.  My husband agreed, tasted ok, texture...nope : (

Oh and a little side note from both of us...we love the packaging, bright colors are our friend : )
