New in the Market: Chip’ins Popcorn Chips

by Jo-Ann Heslin, MA, RD, CDN on May 9, 2011 · 5 comments

We love to try new foods. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

With the taste of popcorn and the crunch of a chip, Popcorn Indiana has produced Chip’ins, triangle-shaped popcorn chips. The chips are whole grain and gluten-free with not artificial flavors or preservatives. Chip’ins come in four flavors: White Cheddar, Buffalo Wing, Sea Salt and Jalapeno Ranch. These popcorn chips are a nice alternative to corn or potato chips for dips.

A one-ounce serving (about 20 chips) has 130 calories, 4 grams of fat, 21 grams of carbs, 0 to 1 gram of sugar, 1 gram of fiber and 230 milligrams of sodium. The Sea Salt flavor has slightly fewer calories (120) in a serving and less fat (2.5 grams). We tried the Sea Salt, a crunchy popcorn alternative, and Jalapeno Ranch, with a zesty kick. A serving of Chip’ins has the same amount of calories as a 2-cup serving of Popcorn Indiana’s Original Kettlecorn popcorn. As with all snack foods, the key is keeping the serving size reasonable.

They are great tasting and because of the restricted diet that I have to follow, they are one of the few “snack” foods that I can have. My only problem is finding some place that carries them on a regular basis. And in more than one flavour. Where can I buy Chip ‘ins

The only place that i have seen them so far is at WalMart. My boyfriend and i tried the white cheddar and the sea salt and they are wonderful. Hope they stay popular.

I have found Chip’ins at Whole Foods but they are not at every location and they never have all the flavors. I have resorted to having them mailed to me from Amazon. They are so delish and good for you as a snack item. Hope this helps 🙂
