Kettle Pita Chips SOUND Good For You...

I like snacking, and often I crave salty crunchy things. I just tried a new tasty snack called Kettle Pita Chips? They're a cross between a cracker and a chip - very light and flavorful, and great for dipping (in homemade hummus).

These chips come in two varieties: Salt Kissed, and the one I tried, Salt & Pepper. I'm annoyed because these pita chips are a bit deceiving. They sound healthy, and are sold in many health food stores next to other healthy snacks (like those Sesame Blues made by Garden of Eatin'), but they contain the dreaded "enriched flour." Although it is organic enriched wheat flour, so I guess that makes it a little better. Let this be a little reminder to make sure you check the ingredients on food labels.

These could be a lot worse for you - the sodium is much lower than I expected - but the fact still remains that they're made with "enriched flour." It stinks that companies market foods to look healthy when they're really not. I guess I'll stick to Sesame Blues for my dipping pleasures.
