Terra Chips – Flavors, Price and Review

Terra Chips
Hi Everyone! I hope you are doing well. Today I’m going to be talking about my experience of Terra Chips with you.

I recently had the opportunity of trying out a few variants from Terra Chips and to be quite honest it was quite a new and different experience. Whether it’s the taste, the ingredients or even the color of the chips, everything felt a bit more healthier and really tasty. Want to know what else was good? Keep reading!

About Terra Chips

Terra Chips

Terra Chips is the brainchild of two New York chefs, Dana Sinkler and Alex Dzieduszycki. The chips are made with real and whole root vegetables including Batata, Beet, Carrots, Parsnip, Sweet Potato amongst so many more. They are Gluten Free, GMO Free and don’t have added salt. They are made in Canola, Sunflower or Safflower oil.

Packaging

Terra Chips

Terra Chips come in a black bag which is very attractive. This has about 141 gms of chips and the bag can be pulled from both sides to open. The packaging is designed to keep the chips crispy and fresh.

On the front side of the packaging you will see the particular flavor depicted with a picture of that vegetable.

On the flip side you will see a description of the flavor along with nutrition and ingredient details.

My Experience with Terra Chips

I ended up trying 3 variants from the Exotic Vegetable Chips – Original, Blues and Mediterranean.

Let me start by telling you about the Original variant.

Terra Chips

This one includes Batata (no your regular potato but a Cuban variety of Sweet Potato), Parsnip (looks similar to but isn’t the same as a radish), Sweet Potato (yam), Taro (pretty similar to Arbi) and Yuca (Tapioca). Each of these chips has an individual color – ranging from a pale yellowish white color to a red. These chips don’t feel like wafer thin ones that we are used to eating – they do feel a lot more wholesome. Flavoring wise there is literally barely anything on top. Probably a hint of sea salt is all you will feel.

Next I tried the Blues.

Terra Chips

I have never seen Blue chips in my life – ever! And these are a strong blue color. So of course at first I was like whaaat, but then when I tried them they were crispy and didn’t feel weird at all. These are made from naturally blue potato and have an almost purplish blue color. Again the flavor is simple – barely any salt too. Somehow I did feel that this blue potato had a slightly stronger after taste versus the others I tried.

Lastly I tried the Mediterranean one.

Terra Chips

These include BatataParsnipSweet PotatoTaroYuca and Ruby Dipped Vegetables (naturally red color). The flavoring in these is pretty good – a very apparent flavor of onion and garlic powder. The packaging says a hint of lime, which is in fact correct – just a tiny bit of sourness that comes along with these chips.

Here’s a complete list of ingredients for this:

A seasonal mix of root vegetables (sweet potato, parsnip, batata, taro, yuca), canola oil and/or safflower oil and/or sunflower oil, seasoning (whey {milk}, sea salt, evaporated cane juice, spices, onion powder, garlic powder, autolyzed yeast extract, natural olive oil flavor, citric acid, vinegar powder [maltodextrin, distilled vinegar solids], safflower oil, oil of lemon, toasted sesame oil), beet juice concentrate (for color).

 

Pros

Final Word

Terra Chips

If you are looking for a healthier version of chips, and are quite particular of the ingredients used then Terra Chips is something that you absolutely must give a try. The fact that there’s no added salt makes them a slightly healthier option. Natural vegetable flavor is mostly what you will experience while you have these. And even the one’s that have a little bit of extra zing going on it’s again naturally done.

Bonne Maman & Le15 – The art of French Patisserie

Bonne Maman
France tourism recently brought together Bonne Maman and Le15 for a fun baking workshop. This was held at StudiO15  – Pooja Dhingra’s very own central kitchen where all of the Le15 goodies are made. Chef Pablo and she taught all of us bloggers what a little bit of French preserve can do to dessert.

Bonne Maman is a French brand that makes the real French preserves. Preserves are more real, whole fruit as compared to jams and are kind of a tradition in France.

Studio15 has the perfect set up for a baking class. And it is so neatly organized. Pooja Dhingra and Chef Pablo got us all excited when they spoke about what the evening had in store for us. And this only just started with a welcome drink that Chef Pablo had gotten ready for us. It felt like a nice tangy watermelon based drink.

After that we were all set to begin baking! And on the menu today were Thumbprint Cookies and some Matcha Cup Cakes. Pooja guided us on each step and we moved forward pretty quickly on getting the dough done. The whole mixing and blending surely worked up an appetite. And of course all of the aroma from warm butter, sugar was honestly making it difficult to concentrate!

Now each of these were filled in with some French preserve from Bon Maman. The Matcha one had the apricot preserve and the Thumbprint cookie had the strawberry one.

And then finally it was time to grab those cookies and gobble them up. The first bite was like warm goodness. And the flavor of the strawberry preserve just works wonders. And the apricot preserve goes amazingly well with the mild matcha flavor in the cup cake.

I actually ended up getting a sample of the Bonne Maman preserve and have been having it with my morning toast. I have the apricot one which is extremely delicious. Next on my mind is the strawberry one!

So that was it for my perfect evening that was all things French. I had such a great time there.

Epigamia Yogurt

Epigamia Yogurt

Wondering if you can replace your ice cream cravings with Epigamia Yogurt? Keep reading to find out!

Epigamia Yogurt

Hey guys. Welcome to another blog post. This is Shweta from SugarSpiceNice and today I’m telling you about my current favorite dessert replacement – Epigamia Yogurt.

I love dessert – I mean I can eat it after a meal, even before, or even as a meal! So you know exactly how unhealthy I have been. So i tried to switch things up a little and decided to try some yogurt on an afternoon when I was craving some strawberry ice cream. And so Epigamia Yogurt happened to me.

This is Greek Yogurt – in simple terms, it’s yogurt that has been strained to remove it’s liquid so that what is leftover is the creamy stuff. That’s how it differs even with regular flavored or fruit based yogurt. Internationally, moving to Greek Yogurt is quite a thing now – that’s because it claims to have more protein and less carbs than regular yogurt. Epigamia Yogurt is one of the only few greek yogurt brands available in India at the moment.

The verdict

I tried all the flavors from the Epigamia Yogurt range and found all of them, even the plain one to be really rich and creamy. The yogurt also somehow feels slightly lighter than regular yogurt and personally for me actually does better than any other flavored yogurt. The fruit flavored ones are really delicious – you can expect the entire taste of the fruit bursting in your mouth, with the actual tang and zing actually associated with the fruit. And they don’t feel overly sweet like ice cream does sometimes.

Final word

Epigamia Yogurt

Yes, Epigamia Yogurt is more expensive than other flavored or plain yogurt available in the market, but it is a tastier and healthier option. Also, if like me you are trying to use this to replace dessert cravings, then it does work out cheaper as well. The one flavor that you absolutely must try is Mulberry – it’s absolutely delicious.

My Favorite Paper Boat Drinks

PAPER boat drinks

I’ve tried a few flavors from Paper Boat drinks, but there are 2 that particularly stand out for me – their Chilli Guava and their Aamras flavor.

Paper boat Drinks

The Chilli Guava flavor from Paper Boat drinks is something that gave me major throwback feels – eating peru with some chilli powder and salt mixed on top. That yummy chatpata taste, mixed with the sweetness of guava. The Chilli Guava flavor from Paper Boat drinks mimics that taste really well. They beverage is just right in consistency and the flavor is perfection.

Paper boat Drinks

Another flavor that I absolutely love from Paper Boat drinks is the Aamras one. It has that nice sweet and sour, pulpy mango feeling. A lot of mango beverages can get a bit to watery and not have a good consistency – but this particular one differs. And it also doesn’t give you that over sweet mango taste – the flavor is very real.

Paper boat Drinks

The packaging of Paper Boat drinks is so well thought out – these are literally pouches and not boxes, so they don’t end up occupying too much space in your handbag. And they come with a proper lid that can be closed and opened super easily, on top. This actually makes these drinks so comfortable to travel with, because you don’t have to worry about a straw or something to consume it. And also you don’t need to have it all in one go – the packaging is absolutely leak proof.

Paper boat Drinks

Another thing that I loved about Paper Boat drinks is that they feel really natural and don’t give that over sugared feeling that a lot of packed beverages give. Their ingredients seem pretty basic and nutritious which makes these a really great option.

These are available very easily at any of your nearby grocery stores or you can even order them online from Amazon. I’ve linked these below for your reference.

*I was sent the Chilli Guava flavor by Paper Boat Drinks. But I genuinely absolutely loved. The Aamras flavored one was purchased by me
