9 Healthier Alternatives to Potato Chips

It’s 3pm and you’re feeling snackish. Sure, you could reach for that bag of chips like you always do, or you could switch up your grazing routine and opt for an inventive swap made from crunchy corn, seasoned chickpeas, crispy green beans, or ancient grains instead. If you’re ready for a change, level up your snacktime with these nine tasty chip alternatives.


Crunchy Corn Snacks

Move over, Pringles! LOVE CORN is a delicious crunchy snack made with simple ingredients and bold flavors. A great party snack, the tasty flavors keep us coming back for more. These craveable, crunchy kernels come available in Sea Salt, BBQ, Salt & Vinegar, and Habanero—a little something for everyone.



Chickpea Snacks

Made from chickpea flour, these snack puffs pack a little extra protein and fiber into our midday nosh sesh. Found in several flavors, it can be tough to choose just one. Currently, we’re diggin’ the Nacho Vibes and Sriracha Sunshine.


Dirt Kitchen

Pop Bitties

Ancient Grain Chips

These irresistible chips are packed with air-popped whole grain sorghum, brown rice, quinoa, and chia seeds. The all-vegan Pop Bitties are available in many tasty varieties. Vegan Sour Cream and Onion, anyone?

Saffron Road

Crunchy Chickpeas

These roasted chickpeas are perfect for eating straight from the bag, but we like them atop soups and salads, too! We’re obsessed with the Bombay Spice variety. Made with iconic Indian spices, how could we not be? Note, some flavors contain milk.

NADI Happy Hearts

Apple Chips

Made with only one ingredient, these snacks bring simplicity to the table. The convenience of these shelf-stable, crunchy treats makes it super easy to eat your fruits. Try these in Ida Red or Granny Smith varieties.


Harvest Snaps

Pea Crisps

Packed with pea protein, Harvest Snaps lets you snack with a purpose. These crisps come in a variety of vegan-friendly flavors like Black Pepper. Note that some flavors contain dairy and are not vegan.
