Vegan Buffalo ArtiHearts & Plant Based Veggie Chips

I've teased a few of you about the mini haul I was able to get this passed weekend but I almost forgot about 2 items I got prior to that.  These Spicy Artichokes AKA Monterey Farms ArtiHearts Buffalo Flavor showed off the vegan "V" on the back of the package.  So I knew I had to try them at least once.  I found these at the Erie Giant Eagle a few weeks ago!  Tonight I put them in a Sun Dried Tomato Wrap and what I couldn't fit in the wrap I ate as-is and dipped in salsa.  Both were tasty but I will say due to their size they were a bit difficult to eat in the wrap.  I think they would be ideal for stand alone dipping or even thrown in a salad!




Next up are Brad's Veggie Chips CHEDDAR.  Again, they feature the "V" we tend to look for on the packaging.  They are also Raw, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, USDA Organic, Non-GMO, etc.

These are NOT a new product but rather an updated, re-packaged product.

I'm almost finished with these and wanted to share them with you before I move on to other foods and snacks.  It's been a while since I had Brad's.  Mostly because when I do find them they are really pricey.  But the last time I went to the Whole Foods Market they were on sale for at least 2 bucks off so I was surely tempted.

Have you seen the flavored Artichoke Heart yet?  Have you tried them?  What did you think?

  1. Gluten-free! My girl would grab that if she sees it on the shelves. She loves these things but of course, there are some she will have to avoid now, those with wheat flour in them.

    1. I'm going to try and start posting more alternative flour items again. Things that are gluten-free as well as vegan. I wish I was better at baking it would be easier to post that stuff! LOL

  4. Found your place! It took me a while to realize it wasn't on wordpress, ha :D
    I don't have a Whole Foods close enough, but a trader Joe is fairly close, it's my go-to for all things healthy :)

    1. Oh! So sorry about that! Thanks for taking the time to find me tho! Prior to this fall the closest WF was 3 hours from me. Now it's almost 2 because of the new one in Buffalo. Trader Joe's is the same way...now just under 2 hours away.

    1. I just need to find the perfect vegan ranch dip to make with them! They did have a natural crisp to them that was certainly welcome!

  6. I have never had artichoke hearts before. They must be tasty. Interesting, those spicy artichoke hearts. Glad you enjoyed them. Now, those veggie chips, I am familiar though not this brand as they are not available over here. They must be very tasty in cheddar flavor. By the way, thanks for visiting my blog!

    1. Let me know if you find them! And what you think of them! I hope to find them again soon! I have only seen them at Giant Eagle and that's over an hour away and we rarely go to that store anymore in our travels!

    1. I LOVE artichokes but it's one thing I haven't done much with from scratch at home. They are a process to prepare. Maybe one of these days I will try to work with them but not now. LOL
