Guess what? The first time I actually had a Riceworks chip was live at the BlogHer booth down in San Diego just in August. I picked up my five free bags of Riceworks chips and I got to sample tons of different flavors. I tried to get all five flavors but I went to a few different grocery stores and couldn’t find the Tangy BBQ flavor. Shoot!
My boyfriend and I ended up opening up the four different flavors and doing a little taste test over the weekend to see which one we deemed as our favorite.
What I had initially thought were going to be my favorites since I’m a plain chip type of gal, I was surprised when the ones I picked out were the bottom of my taste buds favorite list. I actually ended up liking the Salsa Fresca , Sweet Chili, Parm, then Sea Salt. When the taste test was over, I ended up putting the rest of the chips back in the bags, and took the bowl of Salsa Fresca with me to the table and finishing off the bowl. Soo good.
Scotts top faves were “the first three”, he didn’t pick out just one favorite and just said he’d eat them all if he was given them…guys!
We both thought the sea salt was a bit too bland and I suggest it tasted like those rice cakes.
It definitely has some great benefits as Riceworks is made with whole grain brown rice, it’s wheat and gluten free (well “duh” I suppose, since it’s made out of rice). Vegans? Yep, you can eat (some flavors of) these, and it’s also Celiac friendly. If you’re not feeling like eating them directly out of the bag, you can actually cook with Riceworks and make stuff like Salsa Fresca Fajita Salad, or Sweet Chili Inside Out Spring Rolls. Drooling already.
Guess what else?
I’m going to give away five free bags for you guys as well! What do you think of that? I’m wondering if there should be five separate winners? (one coupon each) or one winner who will get all five bags? What do you think it should be? Leave a suggestion in the comments below. Comments are open, so you can enter as many times as you’d like. But be creative! Tell me what flavors you think Riceworks should make next, or how you’d share them!
Let’s get it started. The quicker we get this giveaway on the go, the quicker these chips will be in your own hands!
Let’s say the contest ends…..ahh, how about next week? Sunday October 2, 2011 at 2pm EST. That’s enough time sure, right? :) Contest is open to residents of Canada and the US of A. Oh yeah.
Pssst. If you can’t wait til next week to see whose won, you can get a $1.00 off coupon on Riceworks website — that is, if you confess your snacking sins.
