Simply 7 Chips come in these Vegan Quinoa and Lentil-Chickpea Varieties


Just when you think snack manufacturers can’t possibly come up with anything new, products like Simply 7 Chips emerge. Over the years, they’ve made all types of chips, from lentils, quinoa, and even pomegranate. Unfortunately, the pomegranate chips were phased out, as were some of their unique dairy-free flavors. But I’m updating this post since they do still have a few good dairy-free options.

Since our initial tasting, their packaging has also changed. Some of my pictures in this post have the old packaging, but the product itself looks the same. Here’s what the bags of Simply 7 Chips look like now.

Tasting Notes for Simply 7 Chips: Quinoa Dairy-Free Varieties

One of the coolest things about Simply 7 Chips is how each type of chip has its own crunch-maximizing shape. The plant-based Quinoa chips have a wave effect with a large surface area. Perfect for enjoying their light wafery crispness. These are a bit larger than the others and packed with protein (8 to 9 grams per serving!). Although, you only get to enjoy 20 chips per serving. Definitely no complaints from me.

Sea Salt

With quinoa as the first ingredient, it really shouldn’t have surprised me just how “quinoa” the “Just a Pinch” Sea Salt Quinoa Chips (pictured below) tasted. Each crunchy and lightly salted bite tasted pure, earthy, and quite distinctive.


For those who are a little leery of quinoa’s slight bitter notes, the “Slow Smoked” Barbeque Quinoa Chips are the way to go. As a kid, barbecue-flavored chips were the only flavor that I would go near, and Simply 7 has hit the flavor profile nicely. It has just the right amount of sweet and smokey, but using all-natural seasonings. Tony thoroughly enjoyed this flavor of Simply 7 Chips, too.

Tasting Notes for Simply 7 Chips: Lentil Dairy-Free Varieties

Shaped like little bowls, the vegan Lentil chips had a light, almost puffy, and crisp texture that is rather addictive. And like the other Simply 7 Chips, you get more pleasure for your calories: each serving allows you to nosh a full 31 chips.

Sea Salt

The “Just a Pinch” Sea Salt Lentil Chips have an earthy vibe, but are a nice light backdrop for your favorite dip or salsa.


When a little kick is in order, reach for the “Naturally Spicy” Jalapeno Lentil Chips. Even for my tame taste-buds, the well-rounded heat of these Simply 7 Chips was delicious.

Unfortunately, the Bruschetta flavor shown below, which was very tasty, has been discontinued.
