Ok, I received some of these brand new snacks in the mail from the folks at Classic Foods, and after trying them I secreted them away so my kids couldn’t have any. Shocking, I know. I’m not proud of it, but I had my reasons. What reasons? I wanted to share them with some other dietitians at a meeting I was going to—and I’m glad I did because every one of those dietitians who tried them, liked them. A lot. By the end of the meeting there was nary a Poptilla to be found in the conference room.
What are Poptillas, you ask? Well, they are popped tortilla chips–a new idea as far as I know. The seasoning mixtures are really good–the salsa verde actually tastes like salsa to me. Plus, they have less fat than regular fried tortilla chips because they are popped. I happen to like the light and crunchy texture of these chips better than that of baked tortilla chips (though they have a little more fat in them). In my world, these kinds of snacks are a treat and not a daily staple, so I’d rather eat what I really like. I’m the same way with chocolate (smile). Each serving of Poptillas has 120 calories and either 5 or 6 grams of fat. They are made with whole grains (whole grain yellow corn flour is the first ingredient in the list), and they have no preservatives, no trans fat, and no artificial flavors or colors. They are also made with gluten-free ingredients, and come in 3 tasty flavors: Yellow Corn, Nacho Cheese and Salsa Verde.
