Beanfields Review & AMAZING Giveaway!

This contest is now closed, and the randomly chosen winner is… Noelle, otherwise know as An Opera Singer in the Kitchen! (I sing in my kitchen too, but it’s really not the same thing :)) Congrats, Noelle! Tweet or email me with your address and what kinds of chips you’d like in your case! Thank you to everyone who entered… and if you didn’t win, rest assured I have my next giveaway in the works!

You’ve probably read at least one review of Beanfields by now, but this review is special. Why, you ask? Well, firstly because it’s MY review, and secondly (and most importantly) it’s accompanied by a truly amazing giveaway! But first, the review*.

That Was Vegan Beanfields

My Two Favorite Flavors!

I had heard there was a vegan nacho-flavored chip set to hit the market, but I knew next to nothing about it. Honestly, I had kind of forgotten about it… until an email from the kind folks at Beanfields landed in my inbox! They asked if I’d be interested in trying and reviewing their vegan chips; I responded with a “Heck yah… and can you throw in a few for my readers as well?

Seriously, am I always looking out for you guys or what!?

The first bag I opened was, of course, the Nacho flavored. My first reaction was how different these looked from that other nacho chip we all used to eat before we smartened up. Right off the bat I could see that these were less processed, less artificial, less.. scientifically engineered. Then I took a bite. THEN I inhaled the entire bag. Don’t judge me- it was one of the single-serving bags, I promise!

The first bite was a little disconcerting to my taste-buds… I suppose I was expecting something more doritos-like, and although these taste very nacho-y, they taste nothing like doritos. The texture was also different from what I was expecting. They’re crispy, but in a different way from corn-based chips that have been fried. This isn’t a bad thing, they’re just different. And different is good! I’ll admit that I plowed through these pretty fast. I had every intention of saving a bag to share with my friend Lauren, but I didn’t. I ate them all. Sorry, Lauren πŸ™‚

The sea salt flavor (not pictured) was the 2nd that I tried. Other bloggers have already mentioned this, and I have to agree- there wasn’t nearly enough salt on those puppies. They weren’t bad, but they didn’t pop for me at all. We ended up using those for dipping, and later on for schmearing Daiya Havarti on. They were perfecto for that! Of the 3 flavors though, those are the ones I don’t think I’d go out and buy for myself.

Last, but certainly not least… the Pico De Gallo! These were actually my favorite of the flavors, a fact which may surprise you. Actually, it surprised me… I was prepared to fall madly in love with the Nacho flavor. The flavor was just so robust with just a hint of spiciness- and no dip needed. And just like with the other flavors, you could just tell these were less processed and much healthier than other chips on the market. These (and the Nacho flavor) I would spend money to buy again!

You should also check out their nutrition facts: For example, each serving has as much complete protein as a 4 oz glass of milk, and as much fiber as a 1/2 cup serving of raisin bran! There’s a lot more, those were just two of my favorite highlights. Clearly this is a company dedicated to providing healthier snack options. Their chips are also free of all the major food allergens, and they’re verified Non-GMO.

Now, on to the important stuff…

The Giveaway

One lucky reader, to be chosen from the comments below, is going to win AN ENTIRE CASE of Beanfields chips! You read that right, an entire case! That’s 12 bags of bean and rice-chippy goodness, yo! As an added bonus, you get to choose how you want your case put together: All Nacho? OK! 9 Nacho, 1 Sea Salt and 2 Pico De Gallo? Sure! To quote the great Roy Orbison: Anything you want, you got it!

The contest is open until Midnight (Mountain time), Tuesday 5/15. The winner will be chosen randomly and announced the following day

To Enter: All you gotta do is leave a comment below telling us how you love to eat chips. You know… straight out of the bag… lying on the couch in your pajamas… crumbled up over your favorite tofu scramble… sticking one corner of the chip in your mouth and letting your dog nibble on it (What? I’ve never done that!)…Β Β

    My favorite way to eat chips is dipped in hummus. But I’ve also crumbled some into lentil or split pea soup and they make a delicious crouton-like accompaniment!

    I love having a side of chips while I sip a green smoothie. The slight sweetness from the smoothie contrasts the salt and flavor from the chips πŸ™‚

    I love my chips straight up, with a nit of hummus or pineapple salsa or crushed over some spicy soup!

  • Anna May 9, 2012, 9:26 am

    I like chips for road trips- they’re something I can grab and munch easily without having to fumble with a solid container that has inevitably fallen onto the floor and is impossible to reach around the car seat.

    Chips and hummus for the win! Basically, anything with hummus for the win, really. But I’ve wanted to try these chips ever since hearing all the hype, and still haven’t been able to find them in stores, so I would love to finally get a taste.

    I love eat the wavy lays chips by taking a bite for every curve in the chip – this is the only way to eat them slowly instead of inhaling the entire chip!
