Giveaway: 4 Readers to Each WIN Enjoy Life Foods Plentils Crunchy Lentil Chips!
So I was sent this rockin’ awesome box of goodies in the mail a couple weeks ago and was asked to write a review about what I thought. A few things: 1) if someone asks for my opinion I jump at the opportunity 2) free stuff in my mail box makes me so much more excited to get the mail 3) I love trying new things. Free things, especially.
After giving myself a bit of time to go through all four bags in a portion-friendly-kind-of-way, I am now super duper excited to share my thoughts.
What’s the product?..
Enjoy Life Foods Plentils Crunchy Lentil Chips:
- Plentils have 40% LESS fat than the leading potato chip.
- They’re made from high protein lentils. (Super awesome!)
- As with all Enjoy Life Foods, there are no artificial ingredients and are free of the top eight allergens: Wheat, Dairy, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Egg, Soy, Fish & Shellfish.
- Enjoy Life Foods are also free of Potatoes, Sesame, Sulfites and Casein.

Okay, so enough of that! Lets get down to what my opinion is! My first thought when I tasted Plentils was that it has about the same texture as Pop Chips – light, non-greasy and super crunchy! In short, I loved them. And I can honestly say that there aren’t a lot of gluten free snacks that appeal to me. I guess you could say I’m gluten free picky. Anyway, I’ve ranked them below on which flavors I prefer. (#1 obviously being the flavor I’d eat while watching a movie and then realize I’ve finished the whole bag.)
- Dill & Sour Cream. Hands down. The best.
- Light Sea Salt.
- Garlic & Parmesan.
- Margherita Pizza
As I’ve mentioned in the past, having a “special diet” can be frustrating at times. It’s so important, at least for me, to have foods on hand (including snacks!) that don’t need to be cooked or prepared in anyway. Doing so alleviates the stress of needing to bake or cook everything from scratch. It’s an easy way to ensure you’re enjoying your lifestyle instead of always thinking of it as a diet. So I highly recommend this product.
So there you have it! Lets be honest, we all want to get to the good part which is the giveaway that comes with this review. Yes, that’s right! A giveaway.
