Go Raw Organic Spirulina Super Chips -- 3 oz
Green Spirulina Disks
These taste like banana and spirulina, but the spirulina isn't bitter at all. They shouldn't be thought of as cookies or chips, but like vitamin fiber nutrition wafers which are also tasty in the same way as a hippy food energy bar. I love them and keep them in my purse so I don't get hungry and irritable. I eat maybe 5 or 10 at a time. They really are rich with vitamins. My other favorite kind is the chai flavor.

Dislike the flavour and texture. Not nutritious!
I didn't know what to expect when I bought these. I should have read some reviews. They are not "chips" - they look like rabbit food in large discs instead of pellets. And they just taste like a cross between banana chips (OK) and sesame snaps (gross). I guess I was expecting something closer to kale chips? A nice salty snack was what I was looking for.
The texture - it's hard to bite through each chip, so I accidentally bit the inside of my lip a few times. Not fun. And they had a tendency to get stuck in my teeth. AND they don't really keep well. If you open the bag, make sure you keep it in the fridge. Even then, they will get soft and bendy if you don't eat them up soon. Again, not really "chips."
I have to add that spirulina is the LAST ingredient on the ingredients list, meaning there's really not very much of it in the product. So it seems to be purposely misleading. Spirulina is a very nutrient dense food, and that's what people eat it for! But the information on the bag seems to say there is not much nutrition in these chips at all.. of course due to the fact that it's the last ingredient, and the rest is cheap fillers. Banana itself is a raw and cheap good snack, so I would rather eat a banana than these tough little discs.

Chewy and tasty
These are small disc-shaped chips. They're green with small white flecks. I agree with another reviewer that they taste like bananas and figs as well. I think they are tasty and it's cool they have spirulina as an ingredient. Many people think they are too weird. They are more chewy than potato chip in texture. I think they give me an energy boost.

Healthy option for something crunchy
I first purchased this product after seeing an episode of Dr Oz who recommended adding Spirulina as part of a healthy diet. I absolutely love the taste and crunch of these chips.

If you like Spirulina - you will love these - I love the sweet crunchy flavor and texture! And Vitacost has THE BEST price that I have found. Such a great snack - I am addicted to these!!!
Just wish they came in a bigger bag...
