Review: Brad's Raw Leafy Kale Chips

Hey All, I hope you are having a great weekend! I was lucky enough to get samples from the people at Brad's Raw for a review of their new Leafy Kale Chips! I adore this company, and WOW, these are the best kale chips I have ever had!!!! 

All of the kale chips are really crispy, but firm. I have noticed with a lot of store bought kale chips that the bag has a few leaves and the rest is crumbs! Not with these!! There were barely any crumbs at the bottom of the containers. They stayed together really nicely and have a delicious flavor. I also love that they don't use Lacinto Kale. I prefer curly kale! ;) 

My favorite flavor was the NAKED Vegan Cheese. They had a really yummy cheesy flavor made with nutritional yeast, sunflower seeds, red bell pepper and lemon juice. Totally coated with batter!
The next flavor I tried was Vampire Killer: Garlic and Scallion. I am a big fan of garlic, but I have to admit, I was a little scared that these would have a very strong flavor. To my liking, they did not! They had the perfect touch of garlic and scallion. These were my second favorite.
Last, I tried Nasty Hot! These were delicious as well, but I don't tolerate spicy food too well, so I ate these with caution (they still only lasted two or three days!). These are great for anyone who likes hot flavors!
Every time I see these chips in the store, I pick up a container. I know how easy it is to make kale chips at home, but these are totally worth it! Warning: They are so good that they don't last much longer then a day! They definitely win in my book for favorite kale chip! Yay Brad's Raw!!

Always good to have a stash of these little beauties I find!!! I make my own now as I have discovered they don't really travel that well all the way over to here in France sadly...just get crumbs :0(

yum...kale chips are awesome -- I make them at home to be money friendly -- but I'm jealous that you got to try these! Sounds great.

I love those names: vampire killer and nasty hot. Good to know they don't crumble-- find that annoying. Thanks for the review.
