Not chips, but Chirps! Does that make you say, “Whaaat???” – it did me when I first heard of the new chip alternative with more protein. I’ve had various “themes” for Fridays here on the blog (and many many many Fridays with nothing at all), including “Fitness Fridays” and “Fashion Fridays”… but I think for a little while at least I’m going to go with “Friday Fun Day” because who doesn’t like to have fun on Fridays?!
And eating chips is fun… but knowing they have protein and what they’re made of is just even more fun.
They were recently on Shark Tank and got a deal!! Check out the fun video:
Isn’t that fun? I love the energy and happiness these ladies show!
Anyways, my thoughts:
Honestly, I was a bit apprehensive with the first bite… because I’ve never eaten crickets before! lol (it’s not your average fare here in the US at least). At first bite, I wasn’t really into the BBQ flavor – I thought it needed a lot more BBQ flavor. I did like the Cheese flavor, though. And the Sea Salt was fine – great for using in salsa or whatever else. However, after eating a few more Chirps, I really did enjoy the BBQ flavor – it grew on me.
The chips are smaller in size than most tortilla chips, but they’re so cute and you also get a lot more individual chips in a bag that way so it felt like you were getting more that way (I know you’re not, but I think it’s a smart way to package/produce them).
I would definitely recommend these, and have no doubt that they will be seen very soon in all major stores and soon we’ll all be eating crickets! 🙂
*I was sent a sample of Chirps to facilitate this review, but like all my reviews, I only review the item on this blog if I actually like the item and/or think my readers will, and honesty is important to me, so if I don’t like something, I won’t share about the product with you all.
In other fun news, here in Pennsylvania the weather has been amazingly warm and gorgeous!!! We’re getting so spoiled, and it’s hard to remember it’s still February and not April or May! I like a bit of winter, but much prefer spring and fall over the more extremes.
So find something fun about today – whether you have a boring day ahead of you or not, find some fun or happy to spread around to others – it will in turn also make you have a happier day!
