Buy Stacy's Pita Chips Parmesan Garlic and Herb
Stacy's Pita Chips are the best!
I first discovered Stacy's Pita Chips a few months ago at my grocery store. Unlike some of the leading snack food manufacturers, Stacy's chips are all natural and baked, not fried, so they have zero trans fats and zero cholesterol.
One of my favorite flavors of Stacy's Pita Chips is the parmesan garlic & herb. These aren't just chips flavored with powders that mimic the taste of parmesan cheese and garlic and parsley. Stacy's uses the real McCoy for their ingredients. For this reason, after you open a bag you'll probably want to eat it within a few days. Unlike those Frito Lay chips that will survive the apocalypse, Stacy's uses ingredients that will naturally decay over time just like real food, because it is real food!
Stacy's chips are made from real bagels, and they are not only great for dipping, but also great for cooking. You can use them in place of breadcrumbs in your recipes, or you can use them in stuffing in your turkey or chicken.
Now for the bad news: if you get the small bags of these chips there are only about a dozen chips per bag, and that bag has 140 calories. Actually, the chips have that many calories, I don't know how many the bag has. Don't eat the bag.
My biggest problem after buying my first bag of Stacy's was that I wanted another, and the price for a bag of these chips at the supermarket was way too high, especially compared to the big brands. I found a solution to that problem when I found that Stacy's sells their chips online through Amazon.com, who I grocery shop with regularly anyway. Not only were the chips cheaper when I ordered from Amazon, but I could add them to my subscribe list and have them billed and delivered at regular intervals. Not only did this save me time, but it also saves me money because Amazon knocks an additional 15% off the price of grocery items when you "subscribe to them". You can set up the schedule however you want, so you can receive a new order every week or even every year.
Take note of the price per ounce when ordering these chips, because it might change how you want to buy them. Last time I checked a 24 pack of 1.5 ounce was selling on Amazon for $.48 per ounce, while the 12 pack of 8 ounce bag was selling for $.28 per ounce. Just use a little care before ordering and be a smart consumer and you'll save a ton of money over buying these chips at the supermarket.
