I have a confession to make. I am a snacker! I love snacks and snacking throughout the day probably more than the average person. Now before I had kids this wasn’t a big problem. I could snack on pretty much whatever I wanted to- cake, chips, chocolate, honey glazed peanuts, etc. Two kids later and I have learned that my body responds better to healthier food options.
Thankfully, I’ve always known about the Kashi
brand and have tried a number of their products over the years thanks to my mom. She loves their cereals and loss a quite a few pounds a few years ago replacing some of her not healthy snacks with a bowl of their cereal. So, when I found out that I was going to get the chance to try out their Sea Salt & Olive Oil Hummus Crisps
, I was excited to see if I would like as well as I have some of their other products.

Although, it’s been some time since I’d had hummus, I have actually fallen in foodie love with these Sea Salt & Olive Oil Hummus Crisps. The crisps are salted to perfection. Sea salt is a little bit gritter than regular salt, but you’re not fighting to bite through chunks of sea salt on these crisps. And the olive oil doesn’t overpower the natural flavor of the hummus but enhances it.
Unlike potatoes chips, you aren’t left with a greasy mess on your hands either. I actually dropped some on my shirt and not a grease stain was left. Now, you try pouring a bad of regular potatoes chips on your shirt and see what happens. You’re going to have grease spots galore.

What I loved even more is that the Kashi Hummus Crisps don’t contain any partially hydrogenated oils or high fructose corn syrup. There’s been quite the controversy surrounding whether or not those two ingredients are healthy for human consumption. These crisps are made from all natural ingredients. And this is perfect considering I do my heaviest snacking late at night after I’ve put the kiddies to bed. I can enjoy a small bowl of crisps and not have to worry about staying up until my body digests them.
The only downside to these hummus crisps is that they aren’t gluten-free. So, I couldn’t share with Moo and JJ. 🙁 I definitely had to make sure to keep them out of their reach. And in all honestly, I kind of enjoyed having a snack that I could enjoy just by myself. I usually don’t buy foods the kids can’t have because I don’t want them getting into the wrong things and have a severe reaction due to their food allergies.
However, now that I’ve tried these, I’m crazy about Kashi’s Hummus Crisps and I will be treating myself to a bag after the kids are asleep once every few weeks. I think I deserve it. And you do too. I absolutely recommend that you grab a bag and try them out for yourselves. They come in three different flavors- Caramelized Onion, Sundried Tomato Basil & Feta and of course Sea Salt & Olive Oil.
At the end of day, we only get one body. Don’t you think it deserves the very best? So, here’s to healthier snacking options and eating habits! Don’t forget to check out the Kashi brand on Facebook here.
