Way Better Snacks

Way Better SnacksThe folks at Way Better Snacks have revamped the classic tortilla chip with sprouted grains, beans, seeds and other simple ingredients that pack party-worthy flavor.

Enjoy the satisfying crunch of stone-ground corn chips with the added boost of sprouted quinoa, flax, chia, broccoli or radish seeds, sprouted brown rice, sprouted black beans or real sweet potato.

“Our approach is simple: we source high-quality ingredients and then germinate as many of them as possible,” says CEO and Founder Jim Breen. “We believe sprouting helps to ‘unlock’ the inherent good qualities of our ingredients.”

Way Better SnacksTo sprout their grains, beans and seeds, Way Better partners with a company that has 25 years of germinating expertise.

They also work with third-party certifiers to ensure these tasty chips are gluten free and Non-GMO Project verified.

“Everyone can feel good about sharing our snacks,” Jim says. “And the name Way Better drives everything we do, from our product to our packaging to the way we act as an organization.”

What’s your favorite dip to serve with Way Better tortilla chips?

I mix salsa with black beans (or lentils) - it goes wonderfully with their chips! Also, very filling and satisfying :)

We love your chips! We never feel guilty eating them because they have many healthy ingredients. I wouldn't buy them if the weren't GMO free so thank you! My 11 year old daughter can eat an entire bag if the chili in one sitting so we have to watch her. Thanks for making such a great product.

I've had the sweet potato chips and they are nummy! I like that they don't use canola oil or gmo ingredients.

I believe the only flavor that has sugar is the Sweet Chili. It is sweet and spicy hot. Not in the extreme, but enough that my heat loving husband (who doesn't like sweets) gobbled up a whole bag one evening! We have also tried the Multi Grain which has a good corn flavor, and the Sweet Potato which is a corn chip with a hint of sweet potato and a little less hardness. Still plenty of crunch and crispy fresh, just not as hard. All around good tasting chips and they each have been unique and full of flavor.

Now if you stop using the processed oils we be good! Start using animal fats or maybe Coconut or Palm oils! As these are the really nutrient dense foods. Marco

@ANN - While the ingredient list on their website (http://gowaybetter.com/ingredients/) did not list any animal ingredients, I would check the particular flavor you plan to buy to make sure.
