This summer, you can snack for a porpoise. Literally. Whale Tails Tortilla Chips – a gluten-free snack option that comes in the shape of a whale’s tail – has introduced two new flavors: Hawaiian Barbeque with sun-ripened mango and Blue Corn infused with Chia, and they all support our aquatic friends.
“These new flavors continue the tradition of using only natural, organic, gluten-free, non-GMO ingredients to fulfill the consumer’s quest for delicious, healthy snacks,” said Ric Kraszewski, Vice President of Sales for Whale Tails Tortilla Chips. He went on to call the chips “habit-forming,” and I’m sure many snack fans could relate.
According to the press release, “The exciting new Hawaiian Barbeque flavor combines hints of savory island barbeque with a trace of tropical sun-ripened mango and a splash of lime, creating just the right amount of zest to satisfy the palette.” It sounds like they may be too hard to resist.
The Blue Corn chips also offer a healthy twist. As the release noted, “Chia contains higher amounts of omega-3 than any other vegetarian source, all essential amino acids, and five times more calcium than milk.”
To round it all out, enjoying these chips can even contribute to a better planet. A portion of every bag purchased is donated to the Wyland Foundation, which is dedicated to protecting the world’s waterways and marine life.
I haven’t tried the chips yet, but I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled. The chips are sold at Whole Food stores in Southern and Northern California, many aquariums and specialty stores, and online.
