Hippie Chips: Get Crunchy

Standard

When we saw a bag of Hippie Chips by Rock-n-Roll Gourmet at our local super market, we had to try them. After all, it’s about time someone recognized and made chips just for people like us. 🙂   I mean, seriously, you must know by now that hippies want to eat more than just granola. (hee hee)

Rock-n-Roll Gourmet was founded in June 2009 with the mission to produce healthy, great-tasting snacks. They are a company of music lovers and musicians who, confronted by unhealthy snack food choices traditionally found at most live performance venues, recognized an unfilled niche for a healthy-yet-delicious snack alternative. The snacks that Rock-n-Roll Gourmet makes are low-cal, low-fat, gluten free, non-GMO, certified Kosher and contain no MSG or trans-fats. That’s good news when you’ve got the munchies. Oh – and they’re made in the USA. Love that.

They make six kinds of savory Hippie Chips, three are vegan and three are vegetarian:

Vegan Baked Potato Chips:

Haight-Ashberry Jalapeno, Memphis Blues Barbeque and Sea of Love Salt

Vegetarian Baked Potato Chips:

Lime is on My Side Cracked Pepper (whey); White Room Cheddar (whey, cheese, buttermilk); Woodstock Ranch (buttermilk)

We tried the Haight-Ashberry Jalapeno Hippie Chips. The flavor and texture were great. They reminded us of PopChips with more attitude and a bit of kick. And the 1 oz. bag was a great portion size.

Rock-n-Roll Gourmet also makes several sweet snacks, which are all vegetarian (contain dairy).

If you want to grab a bag of munch-able Hippie Chips for yourself, you can check local grocery stores (ours were found at a Maryland Safeway in the natural foods aisle), or order online right from the source. Sample one bag or buy a dozen and use them for lunches and snacks. Heck, if you’re a hippie, you could carry a bag to your next concert or protest. Crunch on, man.

    • Hey Lori, you can get some on Amazon.com, however, the company site appears to be down. 😦 Hopefully it’s just a snafu or redesign, but we will check back again.
