Review and Giveaway: Whale Tail Tortilla Chips
I was given the opportunity to review Whale Tail Tortilla Chips. I was sent a “pod of dangerously delicious” tortilla chips in 3 different flavors – Hawaiian Barbeque, Blue “Torchia”, and “Alaea” Hawaiian Sea Salt. All their chips are organic, naturally gluten free, non GMO, Kosher and have zero trans fats.
The Hawaiian Barbeque was wonderful – great smoky and sweet flavor. “This organic chip will have your taste buds standing up and doing a hula. The savory island barbeque flavor with a trace of tropical sun-ripened mango and a splash of lime creates just the right amount of zest to satisfy the palette.” I just loved these tortilla chips!
The Blue “Torchia” features “Organic Blue Corn infused with Chia. By adding a Blue “Torchia” chip to the flavor lineup, Whale Tail Tortilla Chips takes healthy snacking to a whole new level. Infusing organic blue corn with the rediscovered ancient Mayan super seed Chia adds a healthy punch and a wonderful nut like flavor to a delicious deep-blue organic corn chip. Chia contains higher amounts of omega-3 than any other vegetarian source, all essential amino acids, and five times more calcium than milk.” And I have to say that with the Chia seeds in just taste so much better than the regular kind.
The Alaea” Hawaiian Sea Salt chips feature “yellow organic corn with “Alaea: Red Gourmet Hawaiian Sea Salt. Alaea is unique to the Hawaiian Islands and legendary or being low in sodium content, 3% to be exact, and high in essential trace minerals that our bodies require. Alaea is sun dried, never processed, and imparts the rich earthy taste of corn that has been roasted “Island Style” over an open flame.” I thought these chips were awesome with some guacamole!
One of the really cool things about Whale Tail Tortilla Chips is their bags! They are 69% landfill degradable! And by the end of 2012 they hope to finish research to claim 100% degradable in a landfill and even in our oceans.
Whale Tail Tortilla Chips have partnered with the Wyland Foundation – which actively teaches millions of students about the conservation of our oceans, lakes, rivers, streams, and wetlands through public art, traveling exhibitions, and classroom education.
