TERRA Sweet Potato Chips Review

I am always looking for a healthy snack to add to my arsenal of snacks. Being the frugal university student, the sales are what determines what my next snack is. At Costco TERRA Sweet Potato Chips were on sale for $3.99 so I decided to give it a shot.

Upon tasting them, they really do taste like sweet potato and they are addictingly crispy. I went through a good handful quite quickly.

The chips are all natural and low sodium. They are only 160 calories, 11 grams of fat, and 15 grams of carbohydrates in a serving. There are even 3 grams of fiber and 50% of your daily value of Vitamin A. They are indeed a healthy snack!

However upon comparison, the sweet potato chips aren't that much better than LAY'S Original. The TERRA chips are 160 calories for 17 chips while the LAY'S chips offer 160 calories for 15 chips. Even when you dive into the other nutritional values, TERRA chips aren't significantly healthier than LAY'S.. The only significant difference is that TERRA has some 50% of your daily value of Vitamin A while LAY'S has 0%.

Delicious bag of chips but judging by the price, I might skip it and reach for the LAY'S instead.
