Tyrrell's Beetroot, Parsnip & Carrot Chips with Sea Salt

 
 
I'm always on the lookout for healthier snack options, that still taste great and really satisfy "the munchies".  :<)
 
I recently tried: Tyrrell's Beetroot, Parsnip & Carrot Chips with Sea Salt and really enjoyed these rather unusual "chips".
 
 
Here's the ingredient list and nutritionals:
 
 
Mixed root vegetables in variable proportions (beetroot, parsnip and carrot) 65%, sunflower oil, sea salt.

Now that's my kind of ingredient list!
 
These are not for anyone who hates veggies obviously. But then again, how can anyone really hate vegetables? ;<) I find that hard to imagine. 
 
But if you DO like veggies and enjoy the crunch of a good chip snack:
 
 
are definitely one to look for and try.
 
Gluten-free too, that's always a plus.
 
 
Stop by the Tyrrell (fun!) site to see their extensive product line that includes all kinds of other delish sounding nibbles. They also have a caption contest happening right now.
 
Tyrrell's is based in England which is kind of cool too.

I can't remember ever having any other snack food that came from the UK. I hope they continue to add to their North American markets, for the US and Canada. I'd love to try more of their products.
 
 
Only two things that would have made these chips even better.
 If they were organic and if the chips were just a bit bigger.
 
But when it came to flavor and crunch, top-notch!
 
I had a hard time not eating the whole bag at one time! ;<)
 

Overall rating for this product: Very Good. 4 out of 5
