If you’re a fan of raw kale chips but tired of making them yourself or just looking for a healthier snack, you’re in luck. Kroger’s now carries the Brad’s line of raw kale chips.
The Brad’s chips are not baked or fried like ordinary chips. Instead, they are dehydrated at 115 degrees or lower so that the chips will not lose essential enzymes and nutrients. Moreover, unlike the chips you make at home, these have a lot more healthful ingredients that add flavor; they are not just kale leaves and salt. The basic raw kale chips, for example, are made with carrots, kale, flax seeds, raw buckwheat groats, scallions, extra virgin olive oil, Bragg apple cider vinegar, orange juice, garlic, and Himalayan sea salt.
Brad’s also has the Vampire Killer flavor of raw leafy kale chips that major on garlic, as well as the Nacho flavor of raw leafy kale that majors on nacho vegan cheese. The chips come in a brown paper bag, while the leafy kale comes in a clear rectangular box-type package.
Oh, and the leafy varieties are currently on sale at Kroger’s for $4.99 instead of the usual $6.99. Give ‘em a try. You might find a new favorite. I found these at Kroger's Waynetowne, but they were not in the health food aisle. Look for them with nuts and other snacks.
