Stacy’s Pita Chips – Garden Vegetable Medley

Posted in Chips

It’s no secret that I have a love affair with Stacy’s pita chips. So far every flavor that I have tried, I have throughly enjoyed. Honestly I’m convinced that they could make cat food flavored pita chips and I would like them. Just kidding, that’s really sick. Today I spent the majority of the day curled up with my snack food parter in crimes cat and watching Netflix. Rough way to spend a rainy day, I know.

One advantage of being a junk food blogger is that there is never a shortage of delicious snacks to partake in when the mood strikes you. I had a hankering for something crunchy and remembered that I had these tucked away on a bottom shelf.

One of my absolute favorite thing about Stacy’s Pita Chips are that they bake the flavoring into the chip itself. I feel like a lot of other chip makers could take note of this as it tends to make the chip taste better, in my experience. The garden vegetable medley is a mixture of herb, tomato, and onion. Not exactly an entire garden in there and with a non-descript term like herb, I was curious if these would taste like a salad or some sort of Italian dish. Curious as to what herb was, I did a little investigating in the ingredients and found that it is thyme and rosemary (shouldn’t it be herbs?) Anywho, I really like rosemary and thyme so I let it slide. Sadly I’m pretty sure that someone drop kicked my bag of pita chips because upon opening it was nothing but chip shards, damn you SaveMart! The most apparent flavor in these chips are the herbs, followed closely by the tomato. These definitely have an Italian flavor to them, and they are really good (as expected). I did not pick up the onion until the very end and even then I thought it was rather faint. I think the only thing that I would change about these would be to add just a hint of garlic.

Texture: 4/5 – Stacy’s Pita Chips are twice baked, so they are always exceptionally crunchy (sometimes too crunchy)

Smell: 2/5 – Despite the normally pungent herbs used and the onion, the only smell I could pick up was of the pita bread itself. Weird.

Appearance : 3/5 – Most of the ingredients are visible when inspecting the chips, especially the herbs.

Taste: 4/5 – These pita chips are really good. The flavor does not linger on your mouth, which makes it easy to eat lots of these without realizing that you have consumed 2/3 of the bag. I also imagine that these would taste good slightly heated up with a small side of marinara. Note to self: buy marinara. I would definitely buy these again and would love for Stacy’s to sell actual pitas for sandwiches. Yum!
