Boulder Canyon - Rice and Adzuki Bean snack chips

I don't often eat snack chips, but today I was in the mood for something crunchy and salty. I picked up a bag of Boulder Canyon-brand Rice and Adzuki Bean snack chips because they sounded somewhat less unhealthy than a typical bag of chips. Yeah, I tried to justify this one. :-)

Well, I was glad I did because these chips were yummy! They were much thinner than your typical chip so they had a lightness to them. They were crispy, melt-in-your-mouth goodness with an adzuki bean twist! Quite honestly, I thought they tasted like black bean chips so I glanced at the ingredients, which listed them as adzuki and/or black beans. Ha! I was right.  Then, there is a slight spiciness from the peppy red chilis tempered by the "natural" salt. These chips are really good! Try them if you come across them sometime! 

If you want to go all out, you can order a pack of 12 at Amazon by going to: Boulder Canyon Rice & Adzuki Bean Snack Chip, Natural Salt, 5-Ounce Bags (Pack of 12)Potato Chips).


  1. Like you, I don't often reach for chips when I have a desire for a snack. (I have more of a sweet tooth than a taste for salty foods.) Still, I do enjoy black bean tortilla chips once in awhile, so I think I'll check these out sometimes.

    Thanks for the recommendation, Angela!

  2. You are welcome. I love sweet and salty so I guess I go both ways. ;)

  3. These are my absolute favorite snack ever. I haven't been able to find them in the DC area... I used to get them at Whole Foods in CA but haven't seen them at the WF around here. Where did you find them?

    There is also a Lemon & Cracked Black Pepper flavor that is AMAZING but I've only ever seen it at a small co-op in Ann Arbor, MI.

  4. I happened to find them in the vending machine in my office! They were there for 2 weeks, but now, no more. :( I need to try that flavor you mentioned as well! I'm heading to Boulder next week so maybe I can stock up on them. I'll find out if you can buy them locally as well.
