The folks at Beanfields were nice enough to send me some free samples (an entire box) of 2 of each flavor to try out so that I could review them and share my thoughts with you. This will in no way impact my review-I remain impartial.
Aside from plain potato chips (flavored chips often have wheat or dairy) if you are gluten or dairy free, your choices are very limited.
Beanfields are made from, well, beans. Navy beans, black beans and brown rice to be exact. They don’t have too strong of a “beany” taste, as you would expect, but they do taste like beans. Overall, they are delicious. I have found a new favorite snack.
Here is my review of the flavors of Beanfields I have sampled:
Pico de Gallo flavor
I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised when I tried these. This was the first flavor I tried out. They are not too spicy and really taste like Pico de Gallo. These are not only gluten free, but dairy free as well.
One thing I truly miss is Ranch flavor. It contains buttermilk, so I can no longer eat it. But these chips don’t, and they are spot on in ranch flavor. No dairy either!
I have to admit, my husband tried these because I can’t eat really spicy food. They are spicy hot, but in a good way. Nice jalapeno nacho flavor. He ate the whole bag!
As a kid, I loved Wise barbecue chips. I still love them, but some barbecue chips have wheat in them. These were good, however, they could use a bit more smoke. Another observation I have is why use stevia? It seems a fad these days. I could do without it as it can cause stomach upset. It’s ok for me in small amounts, but I have to be careful, so I had to limit my intake of these. Why not use brown sugar instead?
These have a good, cheesy, nacho flavor. Very close to Doritos! These are a tie with the Pico de Gallo for my favorite!
All in all, I really loved these chips. Thank you again to Beanfields for sending me samples of your chips. I would definitely recommend them.
