Mediterranean Snacks Review and Giveaway!

The Mediterranean Snack Food Company recently sent me 3 bags of their Baked Lentil Chips to review.  I was thrilled to have a chance to try these unique chips and spread the word about a great company.  Here's some background on The Mediterranean Snack Food Company:

They are "a privately held company created in 2005 to promote unique, innovative, healthy and natural snack products that we are proud to serve our family and friends in the old world tradition.


We use a European snack process which allows us to develop innovative shapes and use ingredients like potato, corn, wheat, rice, oat, multi-grain,lentil and soy to make low fat, flash fried or baked snack products. We use only the highest quality, all natural ingredients with no preservatives, trans fats or cholesterol . We do not use any artificial or genetically modified ingredients in our products. All our products are 100% OU kosher certified."

Here are the three flavors of Baked Lentil Chips I was sent:





Cucumber Dill: 9 of 10.  These chips were very light and crisp with a great crunch.  It was hard to believe they were made from lentils!  I loved the dill taste, and I could pick up a hint of cucumber.  The chips were certainly salty, but a tasty salty if that makes sense.

Sea Salt: 8.5 of 10.  Again, the chips were crispy and crunchy.  They were the perfect level of saltiness - a little less so than the Cucumber Dill chips.  These were rather plain though (unlike the other 2 flavored varieties) and were best with salsa.

Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper: 10 of 10!  These were my favorite.  They were very flavorful and had a nice kick.  They were even kind of hot.

The Mediterranean Snack Food Company is kind enough to allow me to host a giveaway on their behalf.  One winner will receive two bags of each of the three flavors - Sea Salt, Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper, and Cucumber Dill!
