Plentils. I received samples from Enjoy Life Foods of each flavor a few weeks back and thought: oh, I’ll just try one chip of each flavor, to get a sense, ya know – no biggie. Ahem, I had one bag. Of each flavor. By myself. Which means, I liked them. A lot.
I’m not a snacker by nature; I’m not a chocolate person or salty treat person but I gobbled these up. My favorite right now is the pizza flavor but the dill and sour cream is a close second. Truly, I loved them all and they are all the more delectable because they are made from one of my trusted brands Enjoy Life Foods who makes top 8 free goodies.
Yes, top 8 allergen-free. So even though they have dairy-tasting flavors they have no diary in them. Here is their nutritional information and Enjoy Life Foods's allergen policies.
When I asked point blank how these tasted like dairy yet contain no diary, here’s Enjoy Life's official statement: “We utilize the assistance of flavor manufacturers, who, through the use of natural flavors create a proprietary mix that reproduces the taste and olfactory properties of dairy without using actual dairy ingredients.”
If you have a dairy allergic loved one, contact Enjoy Life Foods directly about your needs. Take into deep consideration that eating a dairy-tasting product, may not be for you either emotionally and physically.
If you have a peanut and/or legume allergic loved one, check with your board certified allergist about the best course of action for you with a product made from lentils.
