Beanitos, the Bean Chips–For Serious Snackers (Review)


What are Beanitos?:

Beanitos®, The Bean Chips™  were created by serious snackers, for serious snackers (aka For Human Beans™) who demand more than empty calories from their snacks. And, since corn is in over 4,000 products at the typical supermarket and has been linked to a host of health issues including obesity, all of our products are Always Corn Free™!

You see, we love to snack, but when looking for a low glycemic snack that tasted great, we simply could not find one. So we set out about creating one. Two years later: Beanitos, The Bean Chips were born and launched in January 2010! While we did create a great tasting snack that won't spike blood sugar, along the way, we were able to make our chips even better for you.

Beanitos are loaded with non-GMO vegetable fiber (20% of the daily value in just 10 chips, that’s 5 grams!), 4 grams of complete protein and are rich in Essential ALA Omega 3s (600mg in Pinto Bean and Flax) all which are packed into one great tasting serving!

Beanitos are always free of corn, wheat, soy, potato, trans fat, cholesterol and are verified non-GMO, gluten free, lab tested and certified low glycemic & kosher! For more information on our 3rd party independent testing, check out the health benefits page.




My Thoughts:

I was sent a sampling of each of the Beanitos flavored chips, and have to say that my favorites were the black bean and pinto bean ones.  I didn’t care too much about the cheddar cheese flavored chips, as I am not usually one who likes cheesey chips.  But, both my husband and daughter loved the cheddar cheese chips, so go figure.


Having given up potato chips last year, it has been hard to find another chip that offered both flavor and that crunch effect that I remembered about potato chips.  I had tried various other healthy chips, but either they tasted like cardboard or had a funny taste, or they weren’t that healthy in the end, as they added salt and other flavorings.

These chips are great to eat right out of the bag, or with a fresh cup of salsa or bean dip. So, instead of reaching for a bag of potato chips, why not reach for a bag of Beanitos bean chips today.  I enjoy my chip snacking now, as I know that it is healthy for me, and will leave be satisfied and full after just 1 bag.
