The first time I had ever heard of snackLets kale chips, was when I went to Expo West this past March. I spoke with Gina, one of the co-founders, who was incredibly nice and very willing to share info with me about their products and company. So, before I tell you what I thought about their kale chips, let me share an excerpt from their “About Us” page:

- Double O Cheesy– I started with this flavor because it is the most basic out of the three. Instead of being seasoned with the expected nutritional yeast, these kale chips are flavored with tahini, lemon juice and other spices, making them a savory delight but not all that cheesy. Out of the three, this one gets third place, and that’s because I liked them; just now as much as the other two.
- BBQ Giddy Up– Even though the coating on these chips wasn’t as thick as the other two, it was packed with flavor and not lacking, There was even a subtle hint of hotness from the cayenne that was a good surprise. This flavor gets second place from me, leaving the best for last.
- Spicy Chili-lata– I’m not even sure where the “lata” part of this title comes from as far as ingredients go, and I don’t really care, these kale chips are so GOOD. With a heavy coating of dehydrated sauce, they have a flavor of coolness from lemon and agave, but plenty of spice from dried habañeros and seasonings to keep them savory. I had to seriously try to stop myself from eating the whole bag in one sitting. These were my favorite of the three and I think I’m having withdrawals already!
