Before tasting anything I wanted to be sure of the product’s adherence to gluten-free standards. I was immediately assured that the four products are all manufactured on a dedicated GF line and also batch-tested to ensure no cross-contamination.
Okay, so now I’m safe to open the bag and bite into my first Sea Salt & Vinegar CheeCha Potato Puff. Wow, this is the perfect substitute for the deep-fried salt and vinegar chips I’m so fond of, especially on a hot and muggy Florida afternoon. The “puffs” are light, airy, no oils—just baked.
Next the Sea Salt & Spiced Pepper. These have just the right combination of spice, the lime reminded me of Mexican treats I’ve tasted, and the plain was not my favorite but my testers enjoyed it and reminded me they go very well with any dip. I was told Mediterranean Ginger is coming soon.
The company is family-owned. The concept started in 1996 when low-fat healthy snacks were starting to rise in demand and popularity and a family member had a serious heart attack, alerting the family to the need to change their diets.
Initially CheeCha Potato Puffs were not GF and contained MSG, but a willingness to listen to customers’ feedback and needs led them to change their seasoning line, resulting in this current GF and MSG-free line. I was told they continue to learn and improve by listening to their customers and welcome all feedback.
The chips are extremely light, can be used as a dipping chip or eaten alone, and the shape is playfully designed similar to a wheel. Kids and adults will enjoy.
