Our First DOUBLE Giveaway: Chips + Dip

The winners are: EMMKAYC, ISHIIGIRL, RUNESHADOW, KROGE15, and CARYNV07.

Food Should Taste Good. It's a statement in which we firmly believe, and it's also the name of a company that's been very kind to SparkPeople. In addition to donating chips to the first SparkPeople Convention in San Diego and the upcoming Cincinnati SparkRally, they send our office samples of their new flavors. We first reviewed their tasty chips almost two years ago.

This time they sent us the two newest members of the Food Should Taste Good family: White Cheddar and Toasted Sesame.

The Toasted Sesame were excellent with hummus or on their own. If you like sesame, you'll love these. They were just as crunchy as the other varieties, with real sesame seeds scattered throughout.

The White Cheddar chips were cheesy and delicious, but the good thing about these is that they don't dye your fingers orange like some cheesy snacks do!

Like all their chips, these have 50% less fat and sodium than typical tortilla or potato chips.

Today we're sharing their made-with-real-food chips with five of you!

Each winner will receive a case of chips--your choice!

But that's not all!

What goes better with chips than salsa and guacamole? Not much!



A few months ago, the folks from Wholly Guacamole sent us a huge care package, with everything from 100-calorie guacamole packs and single-serve salsas to layered dips. Holy guacamole, indeed! Coach Nicole and I are perhaps two of the biggest guacamole connoisseurs there are (though we differ on whether it's best made creamy or chunky). Just the other day she wished aloud that we could have guacamole in the office all the time. Some day...

We love their guacamole and salsa. We especially like that they have spicy, medium, and mild varieties for each. Some like it hot (me!) but others prefer a tamer taste. The single servings packs are very convenient.

The company also launched a funny site called Get Off the Ranch (as in Ranch dressing!) The site has funny videos, games, and facts that compare ranch dressing to guacamole. (Hint: Guac does contain fat, but it also has fiber and that fat is mostly the heart-healthy kind.)

Those five lucky winners also will win Wholly Guacamole and Salsa snack packs!



To enter, click here! Be sure to read the rules. This contest will end next Friday at 9 a.m.! Winners for both giveaways will be selected at the same time.

What is your favorite flavor of chips? Are you a guacamole or a salsa fan?

    The FSTG Blue Corn Tortilla Chips are my FAVORITE chip. I usually pair a serving of those with a 100-calorie pack of Wholly Guacamole for a completely satisfying snack. Sometimes, I'll add on some reduced-fat shredded cheese, chili, and fat-free Greek yogurt (as a sour cream substitute) and make it a meal. - 4/18/2011   4:58:30 PM

    I love both guac and salsa, but salsa is my favorite because I can enjoy it on plain lettuce, like a sald, but I don't need to add any dressing. The flavor is all there. - 4/18/2011   2:50:11 PM

    Salsa for sure - I'm very allergic to avocado. (Although if I win, my husband will gladly eat the guac! :^)

    But which kind of salsa, that's the question? Right now, my favorite is the tomatillo & roasted yellow chile salsa from Trader Joe's. - 4/18/2011   10:49:54 AM

    I LOVE both Salsa & Guac, but I usually rock the Salsa because you can eat more of it, which is nice when you're in a snacky mood. - 4/18/2011   10:34:06 AM

    I love both guacamole and salsa. Sadly, my family does not, so it's all mine. That self-control thing gets to me sometimes, so I have to choose my battles. Oh, bother...Pam - 4/18/2011   9:41:02 AM

    I have never tried these chips, but the sesame sound really good to me. I also have not tried this brand of guacamole, but I have heard it is very, very good. I will have to give it a try soon. I like to make my own guacamole. We have a friend in California that grow their own avocados and gave me her recipe for homemade quacamole and we love it! - 4/17/2011   5:03:42 PM

    I'm a guacamole junkie! Love it with chips or just about anything. Would love to win one of these gift packs as although I love chips and crackers most are way too salty for me. I've got a pack of Wholly Guacamole in my fridge right now! - 4/17/2011   10:15:50 AM

    Salsa...love it, but don't mind guacamole either! As for the chips, sesame seed ones sounds like they would taste great with salsa, but the white cheddar sounds good too. - 4/17/2011   9:13:00 AM

    I LOVE Wholly Guacamole!! That is the best packaged version I have found! - 4/17/2011   8:19:09 AM

    Ooh! I love the FSTG Sweet Potato chips. Either plain or made into nachos, delish! I'd love to try the others. And who doesn't love guacamole? Easier than making it myself... Yum. - 4/17/2011   2:27:33 AM

    I like guacamole, but tend to bypass it in favor of the salsa. Since I know I'd lose restraint, it's better to eat the one I can have more of. - 4/17/2011   2:22:34 AM
  • 60
    Yay! I had no idea they made 100 calorie packs - my day is already improved by this. :D - 4/17/2011   1:25:16 AM

    I am a guacamole and salsa fan (both spicy) ALL THE WAY because I am one "Hot Spark Momma!" :)

    As far as chips....I like Trader Joe's Tortilla (spicy of course with flaxseed). - 4/17/2011   1:03:33 AM

    Sounds good. - 4/16/2011   11:36:26 PM

    I like guacamole once in awhile, but I'm a major salsa fan. And I like my salsa hot!! As for chips, well, you gotta have something to hold the salsa... - 4/16/2011   10:42:29 PM

    I love the convenience of using the Wholly Guacamole in its individual squeeze packets. Very easy to put in lunch box for using with sandwiches, chips,also vegetable and/or fruit sticks. - 4/16/2011   10:09:48 PM

    Great heads-up, Stepf! I'll have to try the chips, but human guac-crock that I am, I can attest that Wholly is every bit as good as my time-honored, from-scratch recipe. How happy am I to find out here that it's available in 100-calorie portions, too! (I knew there was a good reason to get up this morning!) - 4/16/2011   9:25:05 PM

    Lol, i eat Wholly Guacamole 100 calorie packs almost daily. I always stock up and have a few in my freezer because apparently I fear running out. I use it instead of salad dressing on salads. I put it on boca or chicken burgers, I eat it with crackers. I dip baked fries in the guac. I've even eaten it by just squeezing it out of the packet and in my mouth. Love it! I also want to know where I can find those crackers. I love sesame crackers and the hummus ones sound really good too. - 4/16/2011   8:39:09 PM
  • 52
    If anyone were ever to look at my nutrition tracker, they'd see that I eat a 100 calorie pack of Wholly Guacamole every day. - 4/16/2011   7:46:55 PM

    I've never actually had guac with chips, I just tend to have it every now and then on top of lettuce and tomato as a salad. Salsa is a bigger staple for me. I use it for chips as a healthier dip, and also as a topping for baked potatoes so that I don't drown them in sour cream. I've never heard of those chips, but I'm definitely going to try to find them. I grew up that chips went hand and hand with a sandwich, and it's been a hard habit to break. I'm constantly trying to find crunchy healthy things to eat with them, and those look fantastic. - 4/16/2011   4:29:03 PM

    I love chips and guac! I don't let myself eat them anymore because it's so hard for me to have just one serving. I'm going to have to look for the single serv's and the chips next time I go to the store! - 4/16/2011   4:07:17 PM

    Thanks to SP, I tried the 100 cal packs of Wholly Guacamole and the chips over a year ago. The guac is a staple in our house and the chips are great too.

    The guacamole on any kind of an omelet makes a fantastic and filling breakfast (or dinner)!
