So when I learned about CrispRoot Cassava Root Chips, I was pretty intrigued. I had never heard of these before, and was definitely interested in seeing what all the hype was about. I did a little research about Cassava Roots, and found that they're primarily a source of carbs but are not a significant source of protein. CrispRoot chips are also high in fiber and contain 30% less fat than traditional potato chips. They're also gluten-free, which is great for those on gluten-restricted diets.

Our Review of CrispRoot Cassava Root Chips :
The texture of the chips is very unique. They're crispy, but don't feel like a potato chip. There is something textural that I just can't place....It's not a bad difference, though. Just very different. They are also sturdier than a typical potato chip. They won't break when being submerged into dips like Hummus, French Onion, etc. the way a normal chip might. (And don't you hate when that happens?!)
My youngest kids really liked the CrispRoot chips, and couldn't really place the difference. They dipped the Original Chips and Sea Salt Chips in a French Onion Dip, and they happily snacked away. My teen, husband and I liked the more bold flavors of the Thai Ginger and BBQ Bliss. My husband even took some to work to snack on throughout the day. These are definitely a fun snack, and more eco-friendly than normal chips, as they require a lot less resources to cultivate. I would say they're definitely worth trying, especially if someone in your home requires a gluten-free diet.
