Some foods just go together, like cheese and crackers, cookies and milk, and peanut butter and jelly. So, what goes with both dip and salsa? Chips of course! In the spirit of our Cinco de Mayo Eat Well Ad this week, I’m highlighting one of my favorite tortilla chips: Tostitos® Multigrain SCOOPS!® Tortilla Chips. What sets these chips apart from the rest? First off, the bowl-like shape (or the “scoop”) makes it perfect for piling on healthy dips, like Dannon® Oikos® Greek Yogurt Dips, Three-Layer Mexican Dip and Classic Guacamole, as well as veggie or fruit loaded salsas, like Sweet & Spicy Kiwi Salsa, Peachy Black Bean Salsa and Summer Melon Salsa. These chips are also heartier than typical tortilla chips, which makes them even better for scooping. Next, Tostitos® Multigrain SCOOPS!® are made with a few simple ingredients: corn, heart healthy oils and salt. These chips are even low in sodium, but still taste salty. The salt is on the surface, giving the tongue a burst of flavor verses being baked in, which is common among several other chips, crackers and cereals. Interesting, isn’t it? Last, but certainly not least, these chips taste great! How will you munch on Tostitos® Multigrain SCOOPS!® this summer season? I’d love to hear from you!
