Enjoy Life Plentil Chips Review!! #enjoylife

I recently had the opportunity to try the new Plentil Chips from Enjoy Life Foods.  Even now I just close my eyes and can remember their crunchy light airy goodness.  Yum.

So first, let me tell you a bit about them.  Enjoy Life was founded in 2001 by CEO Scott Mandell.  They quickly became a "big deal", from shipping their first products in November of 2002 to entering the Canadian market in early 2005.  In December of 2005 they were the first company to EVER get certified Gluten Free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization(GFCO).  By March of 2010 they already had 32 products out on the US market and 23 in the Canadian market.  March of this year they introducted Plentils, their first salty snack product. 

All Enjoy Life products are free of the top 8 allergens and made in  a dedicated gluten and nut free facility.  In addition to the top 8 allergens most of their products are also free of potatoes, sesame, sulfites, and casein; as well as, no artificial ingredients, no trans fats, and no genetically modified(GMO) ingredients.  Sounds good to me!  They also have a stricter testing for gluten than the FDA reccomends.  They test to make sure they are under 10ppm instead of the recommended 20 ppm. 

Now onto the product review!  I was sent a box containing four flavors of Plentils. 

The outside of the box.  Love how their E is a fork!  Made me giggle!

Inside of the box when we opened it.  Loving all the colors!

Dill and Sour Cream
 The dill and sour cream flavor had just the right combinations of dill and sour cream.   I love a good dill sour cream dip and this is what it tasted like.  Plus the light and airy crunch it made just melted in your mouth.  When my kids tried this one most liked it.  There were a few who didn't like the dill flavoring, but I expected that as their dad is not a dill fan either.

Garlic and Parmesan
 The garlic and parmesan was by far the kids favorite.  This might have something to do with the fact that we use a lot of garlic in our house so it's a flavor they are all used to.  Oh and of course what kid can resist a cheese taste!  These really were good.  I only got to sample a few though as the bag was quickly gone with my kiddos munching on them!

Margherita pizza
 Yeap this is as yummy as the name says.  Margherita pizza was by far my favorite.  A hint of sweet a lot of crunch wonderful combination!  I was tempted to hide this bag and not let the kids try it.  But the good in me did prevail and I did share.  All of the kids liked this one as well and sadly it was gone very quickly. 

Light Sea Salt
 The light sea salt flavor was good by itself.  Or as a dipper.  My kids really loved using this one to dip up some garlic hummus.  I am blessed to have kids that are willing to try different things.  These are a great munchy snack. 

And last a great picture of all the little papers used in the box.  My kids had hours of fun playing with these!!

Don't forget to check out all the other great products from Enjoy Life. I've been cruising around their website and  am making a list of things to try!  Those soft baked cookies sound so good, chocolate bars always rank high up their on my list too, chocolate chips, granola, and the list goes on!  It is normally hard for me to find things that are gluten and dairy free, but everything in their line is!

  1. Do they make a plain version? I tend to dislike flavors on snacks like this except in extreme cases, although my family would most likely love most of these flavors :)

    1. These are a new product and right now these are their only flavors. The light sea salt is very close to being a non flavored one though.

  2. I thought some of their products contained potatoes and casein?

    The margarita pizza ones sound delicious, I have never tried Enjoy Life Plentils before.
