Hummus, Lentil, Kale, Quinoa and Vegetables in chips? With Simply7, they have done that and more!
Keep reading to find out why you should try them too!
With chips made from Kale, Quinoa, Hummus and Lentils, and in flavors such as Kale Dill Pickle, Quinoa Barbeque and Hummus Roasted Red Pepper, Simply7 really does make something for every taste.
In fact, the Kale chips are not like your typical ‘chip made of kale [leaves]’ but are instead a ridged chip – that still contains nearly 80% of your daily recommended Vitamin K. The Quinoa Chips are also simply delicious with a light, crunchy bite, using quinoa as the main ingredient. Then there’s the Hummus Chips that give you that creamy, authentic hummus flavor, and contain 50% less fat than potato chips (but do contain dairy). The Lentil Chips are also great, using lentils as the main ingredients and giving you 3g of protein per serving. Finally, the newest member of the Simply7 family is their Vegetable Chips which are 100% Organic and taste great!
Many people think that the Simply7 means that the chips in their line only contain 7 ingredients, but this is not the case. In actuality, it refers to the 7 simple standards that all of their products follow (with some products containing as little as 4 ingredients). These 7 simple standards are things they truly believe should be basic expectations for any snack food. They are:
- No Added Preservatives 0 Grams Trans Fat No Artificial Colors or Flavors Gluten Free Simple Ingredients Simply Delicious
At Simply7, they believe that the closer it is to its original form, the purer it is and the better it is for you (as can be seen through their 7 simple standards stated above). That means no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, no preservatives, no MSG, no additives, and no chemicals are found in any of their foods. Moreover, this means that they DO use real chickpeas, real lentils, real sea salt, real tomatoes, red peppers, garlic and all the other healthy ingredients listed on their labels. “Because nature is beautiful and it tastes great! Why mess with perfection?”
Furthermore, all of Simply7’s chips are Gluten-Free Certified and do not contain any wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, shellfish, or sesame seeds, and many are dairy free as well. However, some of their products do contain milk ingredients because they use whey powder (from cheese production) to give them a creamy taste. This includes: all of their Hummus Chips; Lentil Chips: Creamy Dill, White Cheddar; and Quinoa Chips: Cheddar, Sour Cream & Onion.
*Simply7 Chips are great for adult and kids alike. However, they are crunchy (like unstale chips should be!), and are therefore best for kids who have at least one set of molars. Many of their products also contain dairy, so if you are your child has a dairy intolerance, make sure to check the label before chowing down.
Simply7 was originally created because of a distressing trend noticed in local grocery stores: food made with ingredients that most people don’t recognize and can’t even pronounce. From there, the Founder Rashim Oberoi decided to create a company that makes sure every ingredient used is not only natural but is SIMPLE. He also wanted to show people that simple ingredients are actually exceptionally delicious.
He took these principles and established the 7 Simple Standards that their company stands behind. Hence, the Simply7 name.

As I said before, there are a lot of “kale [leaf] chips” out there, but after awhile, they all start to taste the same – and not everybody wants to eat a leaf; especially picky kids!
But that’s why the chips by Simply7 are so great! With a ridged texture and real chip-like crunch, even those who aren’t into the “eat green” movement are sure to love these Kale Chips! The Quinoa chips are also a great way to get some more of this super-seed into your family’s diet, and the Hummus and Lentil chips are an easy way to get in more beans too.
