Love at First Bite, with Simply 7 and the Pitch List

Let me just start out by saying, that I am a picky eater. I always have been. Even before I had Crohn's Disease, there wasn't much I would eat. After I was diagnosed, it seemed like everything was off limits. The healthier it was for me, the sicker it made me, and the less I wanted to branch out and try anything new. So when I was offered to work with Simply 7, thanks to the Pitch List, I wasn't sure how well I would like the snacks, or how well my body would like them.

Thankfully, it was love at first bite!

Hummus Chips: Roasted Red Pepper, Sea Salt, Spicy Chili Pepper, Tomato Basil
Lentil Chips: Jalapeno.Sea Salt, Bruschetta, Creamy Dill
Pomegranate Chips: Sea Salt, Black Pepper, White Cheddar
I expected to get one or two bags to review, so you can understand my delight when a massive box packed with a staggering 11 bags was delivered to my door! There were three types of chips, with different flavors among them: Hummus, Lentil, and the most interesting one, Pomegranate. I started out with the Hummus chips, since I freaking love hummus. It happens to be its own food group in this house. 

I wasn't let down either! They were crunchy, and reminded me of toasted pita, but they had that same creamy flavor that hummus with olive oil has. After trying all the flavors, I have to say I loved the Tomato and Basil the best. The chips all held their hummus quality, but had slight hints of whatever flavor they were supposed to be. It was really nice to not have the flavor of a chip overpower its natural flavor.

The Lentil chips were something I had never tried before, but they too were really tasty. They were crunchy, but light, and weren't filling, like other chips I have tried. Even though I don't like dill at all, the Creamy Dill flavor was my absolute favorite! It reminded me of a Sour Cream and Onion flavor, and made it difficult to just eat a few!

The very last kind I tried was the one I was the most hesitant about: Pomegranate. I wasn't sure what to expect at all from these, but I was surprised to find that I really liked them! The Sea Salt flavor was my personal favorite. They were very lightly salted, but not so much that the sweetness of the pomegranate was ruined. 

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this brand! All the chips were crispy, crunchy, and had a creamy texture at the end. They weren't greasy or oily, and even my temperamental tummy  didn't have any problems with them! If you like what you've read, why not enter below to win your own box of delicious Simply 7 chips?
