“Really appreciate the fact that the Red Kale Chips is in a resealable package. On opening the package, the smell of the Red Kale Chips was a bit musky; probably came from the tomato powder and sweet paprika which was used as part of the flavouring.
I found the first bite to be really crunchy like regular chips, but as it stayed longer in my mouth, I can feel that it is dehydrated vegetable. At that point, I could not stop munching on the chips. The combination of crispy and chewy chips plus addictive tomato and paprika powder makes this a great snack! I tried the chips ten days later. It was less crispy but still tastes the same. Tasty treat indeed.”
