Trade-up Tuesday: Chips


Can’t have a party without tortilla chips and salsa? Well we can’t either! So This Trade Up Tuesday we found a healthier chip for your family and friends!

They are high fiber, low sodium, have 4g of protein, and they are still “Restaurant Style.” Beanitos Restaurant Style, White Bean with Sea Salt wins this contest. They bring in a NuVal score of 60, that’s more than triple most leading tortilla chip brands and much higher than the Mission Tortilla Rounds with a  NuVal score of 5. They also have less saturated fat and sodium then Mission. Paired with fresh made salsa from our produce department, this snack is both healthy and delicious.

As if there weren't enough benefits from Beanitos, the chips are also gluten free and contain no preservatives. Trade up today and make a step towards a healthier lifestyle!
