The holidays have come and gone. There’s always a reason to enjoy healthy pita chips with delicious healthy and a bit decadent spreads. Personally, I like New York Style Pita Chips. Crispy. Crunchy. Yumm! Come on! They come in six flavors, are not just tasty but are also twice baked and never fried, which means they’re better for you (and your readers) than a handful of chips and provide more crunch with less mess. They’re the chip to dip! Flavors include:
- New York Style Ancient Grains & Flaxseed Pita Chips (NEW)
- New York Style Chia Seeds & Quinoa Pita Chips (NEW)
- New York Style Sea Salt Pita Chips
- New York Style Parmesan Garlic & Herb Pita Chips
- New York Style Red Hot Chili Pepper Pita Chips
- New York Style Garden Fresh Ranch Pita Chips
