Way Better Snacks

At Whole Foods Market®, we love sharing good food and drink. Whether it’s a peak-of-the-season berry, a team member creation from our bakery, sausages made in house or a new grocery discovery, we love celebrating great flavors and products. But we don’t just want to tell you about it; we want you to enjoy it too. So, we’re doing a series of summer giveaways through mid-August.

Perhaps it’s the seasonal wardrobe of swimsuits, shorts and sundresses or maybe it’s the active days filled with time at the pool and park but there’s just something about summer that makes me want to eat right. Minimal ingredients and minimally processed foods free of all that icky stuff – that’s what I want this summer. Even for my snacks. Whether it’s a meal or fueling up in-between, you too likely are looking for foods you can feel good about eating and sharing with others. That’s why we’re giving away a case of tortilla chips that taste good and that you can feel good about. Read on to find out how to enter to win.

What do you get when you add sprouted whole grains and seeds to a tortilla chip? A Way Better Snack, of course! Way Better Snacks virtually named themselves. All their products are:

  • Vegan
  • Non-GMO Project verified
  • Kosher
  • Excellent source of whole grains
  • Low sodium
  • Meet Whole Foods Market’s strict quality standards of foods that are free of artificial preservatives, colors, flavors and sweeteners, as well as hydrogenated fats

Plus, their ingredient lists are simple (and easy to pronounce). Take a look at what makes up their tasty Simply Sweet Potato Sprouted Tortilla Chips for example: Stone Ground Corn, High Oleic Sunflower and/or Safflower Oil, Sweet Potato, Organic Sprouted Quinoa, Organic Sprouted Chia Seed, Pure Sea Salt It takes more than a great-looking ingredient list to make a superior snack; it’s got to taste great too, and Way Better Snacks do. Whether you’re looking for a snack for party time or any time, Way Better Snack tortillas chips are a great match (or munch!) for salsa, hummus, guacamole, pico de gallo and other dips. Yup, the name says it all – Way Better Snacks. They’re a recent – and very welcomed – addition to our shelves this year, so look for them at your local Whole Foods Market.

Are you responsible for nourishing staycation kids, happy campers, reuniting family members or simply looking for sensible snacks for yourself? Tell us who you'll be snacking with this summer in the comments below by Tuesday, July 31. We’ll pick a winner at random to receive a case of Way Better Snacks Sprouted Tortilla Chips – Simply Sunny Multi Grain, Simply Sweet Potato, Simply So Sweet Chili or a mixed case of all three (winner’s choice)!

I'd like to share these treats with my new beau and his young lads who could really benefit from knowing that healthier snacks DO exist, and they are not only better health wise, but in taste also!

I will be snacking with my family and friends!! I pray that God will provide a way for my family to snack with my oldest son, who just completed serving 7 years in the service. We live in Florida and he and his family live in Illinois. I haven't seen him the whole time he has been in the service, and he has 3 children (my grandbabies) and I have not met 2 of them yet. So I am praying that God will provide a reliable vehicle and the finances for me and my husband to take a trip and drive up to visit them for a while. Hugs and kisses from them all are long over due!! Oh, and we will snack with them if this happens!!

My husband and I are both home for the summer with our 7 year old son and 5 year old daughter. I teach Kindergarten and he homeschools our children. We hike and camp and we are vegan and always looking for affordable and natural vegan snacks to take with us on our summer adventures! These sound amazing and we would love to get to snack on these together!

I'll simply be "snacking with the one I'm with"...be that my three-year-old granddaughter, my 30-year-old niece, my 50-year-old husband or my "as-old-as-my-tongue-and-a-little-bit-older-than-my-teeth"self.
