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!
