thingsthatwedo.com - Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips

The last time I had Simply 7 hummus chips was back in 2013 when I tried the tomato basil flavour. Fast forward to 2015 and I received this bag of Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips as part of my edible birthday stash of goodies.

One fine day at work, my pals and I decided to crack open this bag of Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips. After all, chips are meant to be shared with friends. What better time to have a taste test and see what everyone thinks.

Product Review: What ingredients are in the Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips?

The Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips are made with the following ingredients: chickpea flour, rice, potato starch, expeller pressed safflower oil, corn flour, sea salt, whey powder, garlic powder, cane and/or beet sugar, onion powder, olive oil, sesame oil, natural flavours, spice.

Thoughts?

Well, I have a few: I like that the Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips are made with chickpea flour as the first ingredient and rice and potato starch follow in second and third place. The rest of the ingredients seem decent enough.


Taste Test: how do the Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips taste?

A big group of us snacked on the Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips and I’d have to say it was a pretty even 50/50 split in terms of likes and dislikes. We ate the chips plain but we also paired it with a very light hummus dip.

For the most part, almost everyone liked the Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips when paired with the hummus dip. The scoop shape made these chips a perfect vessel to house the dip and the two flavours blended well. The chip alone had mixed reviews because quite frankly, the Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips don’t taste like your average potato chip. Although it had some seriously awesome crunch, not everyone agreed with the taste of a hummus chip noting that they preferred the conventional potato chip (or cheezies).

As for me? Well, I’m still a little on the fence. I certainly liked these Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips more than its tomato basil counterpart. They seem a little less intense and certainly work well with dips (which you know I love). I still find it a bit on the salty side but that could also be because the Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips are smaller and thinner and may warrant a slighter lighter touch in the sodium department to better balance out the flavours.

I bet you these hummus chips would taste really good with some dip and sliced tomatoes. Too bad I didn’t have any at work that day.


Verdict:

Overall, I’d say the Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips were pretty decent and certainly fared better than their tomato basil counterpart. Shaped as they are, they’re great for dips or maybe some guacamole.

I appreciate that the Simply 7 sea salt hummus chips have a lot of goodness in them. They have no trans fat, no artificial colours or flavours and no preservatives. My favourite: they’re also non-GMO. How many chips can make THAT claim?

I just have to remember to grab some diced tomatoes next time.

Special thanks to my pals at work for getting me edible birthday treats that can be shared. Really, food really is the best birthday gift but good company makes it all the better.
