Fire Up the Flavor with Terra Chips! Giveaway!

After 2 redraws...Wendy from Atlanta, you're the new winner!  Please e-mail me your mailing address ASAP!

Congratulations to Elana!  Elana, you've won this fabulous giveaway.  E-mail me (less dot sweet at gmail dot com) with your shipping address ASAP!

Every now and then I am contacted by a company about reviewing their product, and I can't help but get excited because I know that it's a good product.  This is one of those times.  I love TERRA Chips and was thrilled when they contacted me to do a review and giveaway.


What makes TERRA Chips different?  TERRA chips aren't your run-of-the-mill potato chips.  In fact, usually they aren't potato at all!  TERRA uses unusual roots and other vegetables to make their chips - things like sweet potatoes, beets, carrots, and blue potatoes.  The resulting chip is delicious and unusual and a nice change from a plain old potato chip.

For this review, I tried four different varieties of TERRA chips:
  • TERRA Exotic Harvest with Sea Salt - This bag full of kabocha squash, carrot, and blue potato chips is my favorite, and one that I actually buy when I'm in the mood for chips.  I especially love the flavor of the carrot and kabocha squash chips.
  • TERRA Original - This bag features their original blend of sweet potato, taro, yuca, batata, parsnip, and ruby taro.  This is the bag that introduced me to TERRA chips.  It's a nice blend  of exotic chips with good flavor and crunch.  I have to admit, I find myself selectively picking out the sweet potato and parsnip when I eat this variety.
  • TERRA a la Mexicana - The classic mix of TERRA chips with a Mexican flair.  The seasoning is subtle so the flavor of the chip shines through, but these chips have a nice salsa undertone.  A good choice if you want something a little different from a plain chip.
  • TERRA Blues - Made with blue potatoes, these chips are fun and delicious.  A great choice if you are looking for simple potato chips.  Interestingly, these chips are the official chips of Jet Blue.  How appropriate!
Win it!

I have a toddler, and these are the only chips, other than homemade, that we like her to snack on.

I like the original flavor, and the Mediterranean blend--haven't tried the other three listed here. The Mexican spice sounds like a great choice.

Kate E. said...

I'd like to try to Exotic Harvest with Sea Salt. Sounds yummy!!

Jacki W. said...

Mmmmm! I love the Sweet Potato and would love to try the Exotic Harvest.

Kara said...

I love the original blend - didn't they used to have a bag called "Sweets and Beets"? The sweet potato and beet chips are my favorite, and I could swear I used to buy bags that were just them.

Kara said...

I "like" you on Facebook :-)

I really like the sweet potatoes and parsnips in the Orignal bag - I must admit this is the only type that I've tried though! I'd be curious to try Kabocha squash - I'm not familiar with that.

I'm so disapointed that I missed the opportunity to play! I LOVE Terra chips and have been tooting their horn all week since I have been munching on them at work. My favorite are the Sweets & Beets, but I want to try the blue potato.
