I love Popchips Tortilla chips--they satisfy the same salty, corny cravings as Doritos, without the icky feeling after eating the whole bag. (In my opinion, a bag of chips is a single serving, regardless of size.) I liked all four flavors equally, but the nacho cheese is closest to the Dorito of my heart.
My husband hates them with the heat of a thousand suns, especially the lime ones. He says he doesn't consider them tortilla chips at all, but a whole new snack he doesn't think much of. I suspect it's their lightness. These chips have about half the gravitas of regular tortilla chips, which makes them dicey for dipping guacamole and therefore unacceptable. That of course means more for me and I'll probably reorder. They're not readily available in my small town and a whole box just for memeME is like having money in the bank.
Note: I keep reading about how "healthy" Pop Chips are. Uh, no. They're CHIPS for crying out loud! This size bag contains 420 relatively empty calories and is full of salty flavor (translate into sodium and chemicals). They may not be as awful for you as regular tortilla chips, but if you want health, go eat some organic carrot sticks. If you want moderate self-indulgence, these are great.
My three star rating is the household average.
