Cinnamon PopAlongs and Revolution Foods Organic Lunch Pack Giveaway

Revolution Foods Pop AlongsHello and Happy Thursday! Because I enjoyed eating fruit mashups, I recently decided to try another product by Revolution Foods called PopAlongs. When I bought them (at Whole Foods), I was a bit suspicious that they would be akin to other similar looking popped chips on the market which I found to be somewhat underwhelming, but they are actually *so* much better and nothing like the other popped chips at all.

The flavor of PopAlongs I purchased is called "Simply Cinnamon," and the chips are made from whole grains rather than rice or potatoes. The cinnamon Pop Alongs actually remind me a bit of a Spanish dessert that I loved growing up called Cinnamon Tortilla Crisps (tortillas cooked with butter, cinnamon, and sugar).

PopAlongs are whole grain, contain no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial ingredients. They come in three flavors: Purely Original, Cheesy Cheese, and Simply Cinnamon (the one I love!). The Simply Cinnamon flavor is 100 calories per serving (16 chips), with 3 grams of fat, 1 gram of fiber, and only 3 grams of sugar (the other two flavors have only 1 gram of sugar per serving). So, one serving is only 2 weight watchers points!

******************

Revolution Foods Organic Lunch PackBecause I'm such a huge fan of their products, the kind people at Revolution foods have offered to give away a Lunchbox Sampler to one of the fabulous readers of Yummy Diet Food. The Lunchbox Sampler consists of PopAlongs, Revolution Foods Mashups, and Jammy Sammy Sandwich Bars.

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post by 8:00 PST on Friday March 13th. I'll choose a winner at random.

Revolution Foods is also sponsoring their own contest for moms. The cause is very inspiring -- they are looking for submissions from mothers who are revolutionizing how kids eat in their communities. If you are a mom trying to help your kids eat better, it is definitely worth checking out!

Enjoy!

I totally agree that other "popped" chips are bland and boring. I would love to try PopAlongs these to see the difference!

Ellen said...

Thanks for letting us know about these, I would love to try them! I visited my local Whole Foods for the first time recently, based on your recommendations for Indian food and other things. Keep up the great work!

The Blonde Duck said...

We don't have a Whole Foods. We just have one grocery monopoly. And they don't have ANYTHING like this!

Joie de vivre said...

86 comments! Holy moley you are popular! Thanks, as always, for your nice comments. I'm not sure how low-cal Ethiopian food is. In my collard green recipe, I actually halved the butter and doubled the greens from the authentic recipe and it still used 2 sticks of butter for a pound of collards and a bag of spinach. But everything in moderation right? You will enjoy it. :)

Michelle said...

would love to try these

baby safety kits said...

It's amazing how not only gadgets face through evolution but as well as a kid's food!

Looks tasty though.

Katie said...

I love chips! I want to win the pop alongs sampler!

Joanne Mitchell said...

Hi! I noticed that my website isn't appearing well just in case you want to read what I think about food being the food buff that I also am. Cheers!
