Beanitos Review && Giveaway

I've said before that the hardest part of my Get Healthy plan is the snacking. Fortunately today I have the opportunity to introduce you to another of my new found edible friends: Beanitos Chips. Beanitos are Corn Free, Gluten Free, High Fiber, and have complete 6g Protein per single serve bag! "PurposeFULL Snacking for Human Beans" [Love that. :)] I was sent a sample assortment of 4 Beanitos varieties including Beanitos Pinto Bean & Flax Chips, Beanitos Cheddar Cheese Pinto Bean & Flax Chips, Beanitos Black Bean Chips, and Beanitos Chipotle BBQ Black Bean Chips. The first bag I tried was Chipotle BBQ Black Bean Chips. Those come with a bit of a kick! I'm not someone who likes spicy, and I did like the chips, but I mixed my bag with a bag of regular Black Bean Chips to even out the kick. It was fantastically tasty! A combo I would recommend to any other heartburn prone snack lovers out there. Alone the regular Black Bean Chips are slightly salty. A couple days later I tried the Cheddar Cheese Pinto Bean & Flax Chips. I didn't taste a strong Cheddar Cheese flavor, and felt like these chips were a little bland. This morning I had the regular Pinto Bean & Flax Chips as an early afternoon snack. I didn't have high hopes for this bag after the Cheddar Cheese chips, but I was pleasantly surprised. The regular Pinto Bean & Flax Chips are salty and satisfying! 
All of the Beanitos chips are crunchy like a tortilla chip. Although I thoroughly enjoyed the flavors of 3 out of the 4 varieties they all came with a unfavorable aftertaste. It is not horrible, just not great, but after a few drinks of water the aftertaste vanishes. After tasting all four varieties through out the week I've decided these will be becoming a regular part of my Get Healthy plan snacking menu. The single serve bags are new to Beanitos as of this year and are ideal for sticking in Anthony's work lunch, stashing in my purse for a healthy snack while I'm out and about, or packing in school lunches. 

Do I recommend this product? Yes, and I recommend it for your whole family!
Would I purchase this product? I would :)
