If you haven’t heard about kale chips yet, you’ve been living under a rock because they’re one of the trendiest treats out there these days.
Awhile back I did the homemade kale chip thing and really enjoyed how they turned out, but hated the fact that if you don’t eat them all right away, they get soggy and not-so appealing. Since then, I’ve been trying different store-bought brands of gluten-free kale chips here and there to see how they compare. The downside to taking this route is that kale chips are freakin’ expensive. You get an itty-bitty bag for like, seven dollars.
Since the kale chips can be somewhat pricey, but they’re still a tasty snack to splurge on here and there, I wanted to share my FAVORITE brand so far.
Brad’s Raw Foods: Tasty Store-Bought Kale Chips
Brad’s Raw Foods makes tasty gluten-free kale chips of five different flavors – Nacho, Naked, Nasty Hot, Pina Kale-Ada, and Vampire Killer. Interesting names, right? I’ve only tried the Nacho Vegan Cheese and the Vampire Killer Garlic & Vegan Cheese flavors so far and I have loved both.
What I like about Brad’s Raw Foods kale chips is that they’re crunchy, so you actually feel like you’re eating a chip, but it’s kale! So you can be like, “Look at me, I’m being all healthy and sh**, but I’m actually enjoying it!” Brad’s Raw Foods kale chips stay good for a while too, so it’s not like you need to eat the whole container right away (although I won’t judge you if you do). Also, these kale chips are so good that they’ve helped me to cut back on my intake of chips and salsa a little bit. If you’re addicted to copious amounts of Mexican cuisine/nachos like I am, you should definitely check out Brad’s.
My advice to anyone looking to find the best store-bought kale chips is to check out Brad’s Raw Foods. I found them at my local Kroger, but if you can’t seem to find them near you, just check out the site’s online store. They also provide info on how you can request their product to be carried at a store near you. You can also connect with the company on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest news and product information!
