Crunchy, healthy, yummy

A while back when our family was having a tough time, a sweet friend of mine delivered a “care package” for us that was full of snacks. First, I was deeply touched that she’d gone to the trouble to do that for us, and second, I pulled out the bag of included chips and went, “What the heck are these??” The “these” in question were Simply 7 Lentil Chips, and while I like lentils as much as the next hippie, I was skeptical, to say the least. But! They were delicious, and they were also 1) gluten-free, 2) high in protein, and 3) a good source of iron. What’s not to love?

So I went to the store to buy some after I inhaled that first bag. And it was there that I discovered they retail for like $4.50/bag (a little high for my regular snack budget).

Amazon to the rescue!! Right now they have an available $8 coupon you can clip on various Simply 7 chips. Go for my favoriate, the 12-pack of Sea Salt Lentil Chips, and when you clip the coupon and buy via Subscribe & Save, it comes out to $23.81 shipped, or just under $2/bag. If you’re feeling more adventuresome, snag the Mixed Chips Variety Pack for $23.35 delivered, after coupon and S&S. (Pomegranate chips?? I may have to try those.)

It’s nearly guilt-free snacking, and at this price, why not?

    Variety mix out of stock already. I wanted to try jalapeno but the coupon didn’t work on those. So, sea salt lentil chips it is! Thanks for sharing this great deal.

    I recently bought these from costco. They do have rice in them so not as low carb as would seem at first glance but look gluten free and pretty darn tasty.

    I just got some of these in Trader’ joes last week (TJ brand) and I was very impressed, and the kids ate them up.

    Thanks, Mir. Going to try something new.

    Is anyone else irritated with Amazon’s new S&S shipping policy? I have standing S&S orders (Pull-Ups and Annie’s vegetarian chewy rabbits), and Amazon won’t ship these chips until it’s time for my regular S&S shipment in Feb. The environmentalist in me understands and appreciates the smaller footprint but the impatient child in me wants my stuff NOW NOW NOW!
