7-Eleven has their own brand name snacks and I am here for it! The quality and variety are usually very good and I always find something new to try when I’m looking!Continue reading Sweet Chili GO! Smart Tortilla Chips
Finally, a chip after my own heart!
I won’t say it’s a first experience with RAP Snacks but it’s certainly the most memorable.
After the recent experience with Wicked Crisps, I was yearning for a flavorful experience. That’s where these RAP Snacks come into the light. Specifically –
Cardi B – JERK BBQ Chips and Lil Boosie’s Louisiana Heat.
These chips. These. Chips. THESE. CHIPS.
First up, I tried Cardi B’s. The bag has a caricature of her on the front and a real photo on the back. These chips are dairy-free!
They’re very good.
They’re a perfect combination of the light sweetness of jerk seasonings and a kick of heat with the BBQ flavor. They don’t hold back flavor at all, not even a little bit.
Job well done, seriously. Everyone else liked them too, even Legendary Khalifah liked them a little (he’s not crazy about spicy foods.)
Now, how about Lil Boosie’s Louisiana Heat chips?
These are what I would describe as a “slow heat”. They’re not in your face at first taste.
Legendary Khalifah even said “They’re not spicy.”
A few seconds later, he said:
“Wait. I need some water.”
The Louisiana Heat creeps up! They are very hot, in the best way possible. But not just hot, they also have great flavor.
Yeah, Lil Boosie’s chips have more heat than Cardio B’s and that’s okay. I am guaranteed to purchase both these again as I enjoy hot foods.
No whey or milk makes these a perfect choice for everyone who likes heat AND flavor.
If you don’t really like flavorful foods, these may not be for you. (Give them to me instead!)
Shopping for snacks in Food Lion, I came across a big bunch of Wicked Crisp chips. Knowing me, I picked out the non-dairy ones and thought I would be getting a gourmet version of veggie chips.
With a name like Wicked Crisps, I assumed that there would be BOLD flavors happening in this bag. I also assumed it would be crispy like chips ought to be.
I was wrong, on both accounts. The texture first – hard and plastic-y. Maybe some people like thick and hard chips but I am not that person.
With these sturdy chips, there’s no chance they’d break off into a dip.
Both bags that I purchased – Spring Vegetable Medley and Red Curry Hummus – had this same kind of chip: thick, sturdy, dry.
The main difference would be the flavor. Take a look at this Spring Vegetable Crisp:
There was not one shake of seasoning on these things. They were dry and largely flavorless. We decided they’d be better with soup. But we were at the beach and we had no soup so we put these away and tried the Red Curry ones.
The Red Curry Chips were the same undesirable texture but they had a shake of seasoning and it was very tasty. BUT, it was also very LITE.
I enjoy a lot of seasoning with my food and snacks. These Red Curry Hummus Crisps were made for people who don’t like heavy seasonings.
I found myself mindlessly eating a lot of these chips just so I could get the flavor of the curry. That’s not a good thing.
What else can be said about these? Thank you for your offering, Wicked Crisps, but we’ll pass on em.
My son and I had the pleasure to try these snacks!
Snacks are always a good idea to have near. That’s extra true when you really try to eat healthy.
I first heard about Graze snacks as a subscription box service a couple of years ago (I think!).
However, I don’t have a subscription. I saw some of these snacks on sale at CVS Pharmacy. I bought one sweet flavor and one savory.
Today, my son, Legend, and I tried them!
First, we had the sweet:
These oat squares had the texture of a chewy granola bar. The cacao flavor really came through strongly! As well as the cranberry and vanilla.
I loved it! Legend didn’t enjoy it as much. I think that he likes his treats sweeter. Because these were not very sweet, which is one thing I really loved about it.
I think we saved the best for last – a crunchy snack mix:
Legend and I both wanted more of these! It was so good, pleasantly crunchy and crisp. Although, not very spicy, I would have enjoyed a little more peppery kick. However, the makers know what they’re doing, flavor-wise. I could eat a 2 pound bag of this mix! 🙂
Over all, yes these are good and highly recommended.

Coconut isn’t so bad..
For years, my abhorrence of coconut was narrowed down to my intense dislike of the “dry crunch” experience that Coconut brought to my mouth.
Now I must admit, writing that opener was tough, given the fact that I actually like coconut now.
All of it; I like all coconut.
Even the shredded coconut that they add sugar to in the baking aisle.
Coconut flour is a little weird though.. and I’d just rather not use it. I mean, it’s like a sponge. It will ruin the texture of things. Lots of things.
Sorry to put negative energy out on coconut like this! So we’ll switch it up:
These are a delicious snack. They’re sweet and crunchy and filling, especially if you eat the entire bag (2 servings per bag).
Wash em down with this:
This coconut water is really good but I was so disappointed to find out that there is sugar added 😦 bummer.
Okay, and then what about this chocolate flavor:
These chocolate coconut chips are so fabulous! Crunchy and chocolate-y.
I was definitely skeptical but, looking back, what was I worried about 🙂
I recommend coconut snacks because : They’re natural, high in fiber and flavorful! They’re also affordable – all of the snacks featured in this post can be found at the Dollar Tree.
