NEW from Hippie Foods: Organic Coconut Chips in Tamari & Cracked Pepper and Coconut Bacon Flavours

Delicious new vegan whole food snacks, from Canadian company, Left Coast Naturals, make noshing nutritious

Burnaby, British Columbia (October 27, 2015): The big hunger for Hippie Foods’ delicious, nutritious and organic Coconut Chips has spawned two irresistible new flavours from Burnaby, BC-based Left Coast Naturals: Tamari & Cracked Pepper and Coconut Bacon.

“We like snacks as much as the next guy or gal, but we don’t like our snacks to be full of empty calories and junk, and we don’t want to regret eating them almost as soon as we finish them,” says Ian Walker, President and Founder of Left Coast Naturals. “So we use healthy ingredients to create crisp, satisfying chips that leave us feeling well-nourished, too.”

Sold in 56g bags, Hippie Foods’ Coconut Chips are a handcrafted, nutritionally dense snack food that makes you feel great about your choice, even as you’re saying, “Mmmm… meat-free bacon.”

Natural hickory smoke flavour, organic maple syrup, organic tamari soy sauce and roasted organic coconut make for a sensationally tasty, crunchy, gluten-free, vegan snack food in Hippie Foods’ Coconut Bacon. You can also use these delicious treats on top of salads, soups, stir-fries – even on ice cream or sorbetto for a savoury counterpoint to your sweets.

If umami is what you crave, Hippie Foods’ Tamari & Cracked Pepper Coconut Chips are “unputdownable.” Organic nutritional yeast is the secret ingredient in these delectable chips, the very first food product to use nutritional yeast and be certified non-GMO. Enjoy them with lemonade or cocktails at casual get-togethers or in place of nuts at fancier soirees.

Hippie Foods: Hippie Garden Chips

Organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan and raw, this healthy snack packs a nutrient-dense crunch with satisfying flavour!

Burnaby, British Columbia: Hippie Foods, the makers of Hippie Snacks Coconut Chips and Hippie Cookies, also offer Hippie Garden Chips. Organic, gluten-free, Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan and raw, the chips are available in three savoury blends: Roots Medley, Crunchy Coleslaw and Snacking Stir Fry.

Hippie Garden Chips are crafted from slices of organic vegetables, using local produce wherever possible, including kale, sweet potatoes, zucchini, red beets, cabbage, carrots and onions, which are gently crisped through a unique nutrient-preserving dehydration process. The flavour blends are then hand-mixed with a savoury dressing made from organic nuts (no peanuts) and seeds.

Each serving of Garden Chips is packed with 4 to 6 grams of protein and 3 to 4 grams of fiber and is a healthy alternative to other snacks often loaded with empty calories. While the three flavours will appeal to a wide variety of tastes, the feel-good treat will also satisfy snackers with special dietary requirements, including gluten-free and vegan diets.

“Our goal was to craft a chip that tastes great and provides wholesome nutrition. Using ingredients we like, we created a snack that’s all about having your veggies and loving them too!” says Ian Walker, President and Founder, Hippie Foods. “Our foods are a twist on traditional snacks, cereals and treats. Who says chips can’t be made from whole veggies instead of corn or potatoes or that cookies can’t be made with nutrient dense nuts instead of flour? Granola made from seeds, nuts and fruit instead of oats? Absolutely! We believe that food should be wholesome, delicious and made with ingredients you can pronounce.”
