Cassava Chips

I'm not exactly up there with The Chippie, but I sure do enjoy a good deep fried and salted slice of starch now and again...

So today I bring you a product review of a sort of off-the-beaten path kinda item. Something you may pass by at the market on your way to something else. But if you do, oh my peaches, you are missing something good.

As a die-hard fan of a quality chip, I have noticed that I rarely venture far from my beloved potato variety, (because heck kids, if I'm going to indulge, I'd best be sure it's going to be worth my while!) but then again, I always like to try something new. Especially when I'm feeling feisty.

That said, I encourage you to try, as I did, these excellently different Cassava Chips! Made from Cassava, (also known as yucca root or manioc and about thirty-six other names) a starchy tuber widely grown and consumed in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. And now, hopefully, here! (Or, where ever you are!) They really are a tasty treat.


They are, um, hardier than a potato chip, and have a bit more, chew to them (must be all that fiber) and a scoatch less, crunch, but overall, taste-wise, they are maybe a touch nuttier. All that and the big good happy news is that they are about 1/3 less calories and a good source of (the aforementioned) fiber and vitamin C. Big good happy news, right?

So if you see them around, try some, and enjoy!


The average Russian household spends about $12 a year on potato chips

Florida is second only to Brazil in global orange juice production, and puts out more than 90 percent of all juice consumed in North America.

Ohh...I do heart yucca root!
yummo, my mum likes bake with cassava a lot. These chips look really interesting.
