Gluten-Free Chocolate Tortilla Chips



I can not believe I didn't try these chocolate tortilla chips earlier - they are WONDERFUL! I love chocolate, as any of my readers fully know by now, and the subtle chocolate / cocoa flavor in these certified gluten-free tortilla chips makes for an extra-special snack. They are made by a company called "Foods That Should Taste Good (tm)" in Massachusetts, and my first thoughts upon tasting them include: "wow" that is a great tasting quality product with fantastic texture and mouth appeal.

I found these gluten-free chips at Whole Foods Market earlier today, and I have since tried them plain, and with a bit of Parmigiano-Reggiano I also purchased today as a treat. I enjoyed these considerably both ways. The one problem is the fact I could eat a whole bag of them in one sitting, which probably isn't the best idea for a diet, though it could be enjoyable. They are labeled as a possible dessert item too, and I concur.

In addition to chocolate tortilla chips, they have a few other varieties of wheat-free and gluten-free chips with interesting flavors I am looking forward to also trying: varieties including Jalepeno tortilla chips, olive tortilla chips, and even a gluten-free multigrain tortilla chip. And, here's a quote from their website regarding their gluten-free certification:

Are any of your products gluten-free?

Yes! All of our chips have been tested and certified gluten-free, and all are processed on machinery that that does not process any items with gluten. (If you are concerned about the oat fiber in the multigrain chips, don't be! The fiber is extracted from the oats, and does not contain any gluten.)

I am always pleased to encounter such wonderful gluten-free products, especially novel ones that are especially standouts in the crowd, that I can recommend to others. These definitely get my full "thumbs up" gluten-free product recommendation. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

I may have to make a trip to WholeFoods today. I love unusual flavor combinations and have really been enjoying chocolate in savory dishes lately.

Thanks for the heads up!

GF Steve,
Not to pick on you TOO much, but you must have really just glanced over the post, since the answer to your question was clearly there. But, I'll repeat here just for you :)

Dianne,
I sure hope the London Whole Foods has them! They are really good. I am counting the days til I get back to Whole Foods locally, and this time I know to pick up a few bags (since they don't last me long).
