Are Stacy's Multigrain Pita Chips Healthy?

Updated on May 10, 2011

Stacy's Pita Chips are a healthier alternative to Fritos and Lay's

I discovered Stacy's pita chips a few months ago, and I've had a chance to try some of their flavors since that time. My favorite is Stacy's parmesan cheese and herb, but my second favorite is the Multigrain chip.

Pita chips are apparently made by baking pitas (you know, pocket sandwich bread) and then seasoning it. Unlike the parmesan cheese and herb, with the multigrain most of the flavor is in the chip itself and not from the seasoning. There is some seasoning on the multigrain, but it's just a tiny bit of sea salt, which I've been told is better than regular table salt (I'm no expert in chemistry, so I can't tell you the difference).

Like other Stacy's chips, the multigrain chips are made with all natural ingredients and don't have any artificial flavors added to them. In addition, they are baked instead of fried, so there are no trans fat and zero cholesterol.

Buying Stacy's Multigrain Pita Chips - As I've said before, you can end up spending a lot more money than you have to when buying boutique snack foods like Stacy's chips. You have to know what channels to go through to get them at a low cost. If you just go down to your neighborhood grocery store, chances are they are selling these chips in small bag for $1.50 to $2 a bag. The truth is, you can get these a lot cheaper online. Amazon has the 6 ounce bags for a little more than $2 a bag (at the supermarket you'd get a 1.5 ounce bag for about this price) in 12 bag packs, and you can save even more if you "subscribe" to them, which means you set up a schedule to have them billed and delivered every few months or so. You'll save an extra 15% if you subscribe. Believe it or not, I buy a large portion of nonperishable food items this way, and save a lot of trips to the store.

Alternative uses for Stacy's Multigrain Pita Chips - Pita chips can be used in a variety of recipes as a healthy alternative to breadcrumbs or as stuffing. You'll understand when you see them, as they are not the same texture as greasy Fritos or those thin Lay's potato chips.
