We Test it: 3 Gourmet Chips

Indulge in a healthy, crispy snack with our favorite gourmet chips -- all rated low on fat, high on flavor.
Our Picks for Tasty, Healthy Chips

If you're going to indulge, do it right -- with top-of-the-line, crispy, crunchy, perfectly salted potato chips, not a bag of greasy crumbs. All our picks have little or no bad fat and taste nearly indistinguishable from full-fat munchies.

Kettle Bakes, Lightly Salted

125 calories, 3g fat, 0g saturated fat, 0g trans fat, 115mg sodium for 20 chips

Made from whole sliced potatoes, this new line tastes far superior to the average baked chip (and disappeared from the office within minutes).

Terra Blues

130 calories, 6g fat, 1g saturated fat, 0g trans fat, 115mg sodium for 15 chips

While not expressly a "better-for-you" brand, these relatively low-fat, thickly cut chips made from exotic blue potatoes provide a substantial crunch.

Michael Season's Reduced Fat Honey Barbeque

140 calories, 7g fat, 1g saturated fat, 0g trans fat, 160mg sodium for 17 chips

Thin and crispy with a light, smoky, backyard barbecue flavor, these chips are fried -- but in heart-healthy peanut oil.
