My Thoughts

I got to test out a few bags of these tasty Snyder of Berlin Potato Chips, and they are snacks that are simply delicious. They're made with all the best ingredients, and are packed with flavor. Each crunchy chip is a delight for your taste buds. They taste amazing on their own, but they are also perfect for dipping into your favorite condiment. Of course, the best part is that they are gluten free. They also come in some unique flavors like the Vlasic Dill Pickle which was our favorite.  It takes sort of like vinegar chips, but even better.  We also tried the Honey BBQ, and they were fantastic as well.

 My kids really enjoyed this chips. They aren't greasy like most chips, but they are still crispy and taste great. Most gluten-free chips taste like cardboard, but these are packed with flavor and you can be proud to serve them up in your child's lunch box.  If you're looking for a great snack to start the school year off right, give these chips a try.
