I'm Addicted to Cassava!

So, I wanted to tell everyone about my absolute favorite salty snack. They are Cassava Chips and are made by the Arico Natural Foods Company. These chips are both gluten free and casein free and are available in 4 delicious flavors including Original, Sea Salt Mist, Barbeque, and Ginger on Fire. It is not possible for me to choose my favorite flavor as it depends on what I'm craving and the mood I'm in at the time. Each one is equally satisfying!

Cassava is a root plant that grows much like a potato. They originated in ancient South American civilizations and now cassava is consumed as a staple food by more than 500 million people around the world.

Not only are they more delicious than potato chips, in my opinion, but they are healthier too! They contain twice the fiber and 40% less fat than the leading brands of potato chips.

The Arico Natural Foods Company also produces other products beside Cassava Chips. These include Cookie Pouches and Cookie Bars. Their Cookie Pouches are available in Double Chocolate, Chocolate Chunk, Almond Cranberry, Triple Berry, Lemon Ginger, and Peanut Butter. Their Cookie Bars are available in Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chunk, Almond Cranberry, and Double Chocolate.

You can also trust that a product made by Arico is going to be super healthy for you too. All of their snacks are gluten free, wheat free, casein free, dairy free, yeast free, and contain no trans fats, refined sugars, artificial sweeteners, sulfites, preservatives, and colorings. They are also Kosher and Organic Certified.

The flour used to make their cookies is organic brown rice quinoa flour and organic evaporated cane juice and organic agave nectar is used to sweeten their cookies.
