Aldi's Dill Pickle Kale Chips Are Back and Snacktime Is About to Get a Lot More Delicious
Small list of ingredients; huge punch of flavor.
On the heels of Farmhouse Culture's Dill Pickle Kraut Krisps, Vlasic's Dill Pickle Chips, Emerald's Dill Pickle Cashews and Clancy's Dill Pickle-Flavored Popcorn, Aldi relaunched a fan-favorite dill-scented snack on June 10.
Spotted by @aldiforpresident for $2.29, each 3 ½-ounce bag of Simply Nature Kale Chips offers three and a half servings of vegan, gluten-free, dill-flavored goodness. The kale chips are also available in Sea Salt and Lemon & Olive Oil varieties, but why would you opt for one of those when you could pick pickle?
This veggie-infused snack is part of Aldi's Simply Nature line, which features all organic products that are free of more than 125 common food additives—including high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils (trans fats) and antibiotics—as well as all artificial ingredients, preservatives and colors.
According to Fooducate, each 23-chip serving has 130 calories, 6 grams of fat, 18 grams of carbs and 1 gram of protein. Unlike some produce pretenders that tout how they're "plant-based" but only include a tiny bit of the fruit or veggie promoted, the most prominent ingredient in these kale chips is—you guessed it—kale! Potato flour and starch, sunflower and safflower oil, sea salt, rice flour, white vinegar powder, cane sugar, garlic and a few acids (for tang) round out the ingredient list.
