Thank you for visiting. This giveaway has ended.

Have you ever heard of popchips™? Up until a little over a year ago, I hadn’t. I picked up some at Blogher Food ’09 conference, threw them in my bag and didn’t think twice about them, until the flight home when my stomach started growling. I thought they’d be some healthy, stale, tasteless snack. I was pleasantly surprised. They were quite tasty.

Quite tasty indeed.

When Blogher Food ’10 rolled around, I was happy to see the popchips™ table. I nonchalantly passed the table a few times, hoping they didn’t notice, and was able to snag a few bags of my favorite flavor, “salt and pepper.” Yummy stuff y’all. It’s happy snacking for sure.

Why? Well, for starters popchips™ contain less than half the fat of fried potato chips. That’s something. Plus no trans fats and cholesterol.

Zero. Zilch. Nada.

How can that be? Popchips™ are cooked under heat and pressure, popping out a crunchy, tasty snack. They’re not fried. All the yucky oils and junk that comes from frying? Totally avoided. They’re not baked either. Baked snacks tend to lack flavor and crunch. Cool huh? Read more about nutritional facts, where to find popchips,™ and the rest of the nitty gritty at the popchips™ site.

When the popchips™ people contacted me about trying all of the popchips™ flavors and then offering a giveaway to one of you, it was a no-brainer. (Yep, I said giveaway, read on…)

A few days later this red box popped up at my door.

“Pop” open.

Creative people rock. I especially enjoyed their snackers credo.

Those witty popchips™ guys…

I’ve got to think, if this much thought goes into the packaging, what must be behind the actual product? Good stuff that’s what. Bags of good stuff.

The popchips™ folks sent snack size bags for us to try, along with a popchips™ chip clip, and coupons for popchips™.

Here’s your chance to receive a red box to pop open some snack happening goodness in your own home. There are two (2) ways to enter. (That means you can enter twice.)

• One way is to leave a comment here telling me your favorite time to snack. Does tailgating before your local college game bring on the munchies? Family movie night? Chillin’ at the beach? Just share your favorite snack time and you’ll be entered to win.

• The second way is to visit the popchips™ facebook page, “Like” them, and post a comment on their facebook wall telling about the giveaway here at Then come back here to leave a comment letting me know that you did so. Make sense?

So, again, you can enter twice, doubling your chance to get pop happy.

Giveaway begins today Monday, November 1, 2010, and ends Monday, November 8, 2010 Midnight PST.

Happy snacking y’all!

(The cool people from popchips™ sent me the box of goodies I mentioned above and will be supplying another one for the winner of this giveaway.)
