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'll be snack along with our flow of out of town guests visiting throughout the summer. Chips and dip are the best for that mid-afternoon slump.

I love cheese, any type of cheese. I also like to serve fruit along with cheese of any kind. Another snack I like is pretzels dipped in sour cream.

I'll be snacking with my boyfriend,three teenage boys(they really put the chips away), his parents, friends with two small boys and whoever else stops by. We will be snacking at home and when we make the trek to the beach every weekend. Nothing better then hanging out with friends and family snacking, talking and having fun.

Everyone in my family loves tortilla chips. Even more when they are healthy. My sister is the one who loves them more than us. It will be like a dream come true if she won free chips. We all will share it and dip it in our homemade salsa.
