This is my first product review on the blog. I figured it’d be easier for my readers to find great Paleo products I love if I keep them all in one place! Just click the Paleo products tab, or search Paleo products in the search box on here and you’re good to go!
Alright, let’s get to it! My first review is for a product that is exactly what the name says…AWESOME!! Sweetpotato Awesome are freeze dried, organic, thick sliced, sweet potatoes. A direct quote from their site about their slices:
Using a patent pending process to prepare the sweetpotatoes for the freeze drying, our slices not only have a unique texture and high retention of nutrients but a long shelf life as well due to it’s extremely low moisture content. We sell SLICES, not chips. Our slices are cut at a thickness that allows them to be used like a cracker or in the case of Flat Out Awesome, a piece of toast or flat bread. The thickness of the cut, the nature of the sweetpotato as a root vegetable and the freeze dry process yield a product sturdy enough to dip and scoop a variety of foods to go along with the Awesome. Enjoy!
I wasn’t sure what to expect with a freeze dried sweet potato, but man they are delicious! I love everything about them. The texture is perfect too. They’re crunchy, but not at all brick-like. Think cracker-ish. They crunch then sort of almost melt after a few chews. I have an addiction to chips, no joke I could down a whole bag in one sitting. These have the benefit of being crunchy and salty like a chip BUT they are very satisfying and filling unlike chips. Which means I can eat only a few and be totally content without the guilt and bloating.
I received four flavors to try: Dilliciously Awesome which is Dill and Garlic, Chias Awesome is Cinnamon and Chia Seed, Bits of Flat Out Awesome is Sea Salt but in smaller pieces, and Hot N’ Awesome is Dill, Garlic, and Chipotle.
We like to travel fairly often and these will make the perfect travel companion for me. The packaging is thick and unless someone sits on them they probably won’t get smashed. I can’t wait to make some guacamole and scoop these slices of Awesome into it!
They are having a sale through the end of the year for 17% off too! So go to their site and order some bags of Awesome with the code awesome17 at checkout.
