Reviewing My Fave Snacks of 2020

Hey friends. 🙂

2020 has been anything BUT ordinary – and these snacks are anything BUT ordinary, also! I discovered all of these in the last few months and let me tell you, they have made my grocery pickup orders a little extra flavorful. 😉

Except for the wontons, I believe all of the other snacks are vegetarian, so that’s a nice bonus for all of you non-meat eaters!

(I’m writing this whilst on hold with College Board, suffering through their 80’s elevator music, and I need something to do with myself.)

First up: Late July Jalapeño Chips

Y’all. I cannot even begin to describe the perfection of these crunchy, crispy, flavorful chips. They taste like Cool Ranch Doritos except they’re HEALTHY and ORGANIC. But seriously, I have never tasted anything more similar to those Doritos. They’re just a little spicy and bursting will flavor all around. Please note that Late July also offers a Jalapeño Lime TORTILLA chip – but these are not tortilla chips. They are corn chips, yes, but not tortilla chips.

Next we’ve got: Late July Korean Barbecue Chips

Are you starting to notice a trend?

Like the jalapeño chips, these ones are Late July as well. They are also extremely delicious, though I would have to rank them just behind the “green chips” (I call them green and purple chips because of the bag color – they’re actually both a nice golden yellow color). These ones are a little less spicy than the lime ones and that may be better for some of you more picky eaters. Still bursing with flavor, though!

Let’s change it up a bit: Simply Cheetos Puffs White Cheddar


Cheetos have never been the most healthy snack, but the brand recently released a more natural snack line – Simply Cheetos. Be warned, though – this snack is highly addicting! Cheetos did not cheat with the amount of cheese on these puffs. And if you’re looking for a more spicy snack, you can try their White Cheddar Jalapeño Puffs.

And now for a whole meal: Bibigo Mini Wontons Chicken & Cilantro


These are included in my list of foods I discovered in 2020, and they’re super popular around my house! We actually wind up eating these as a whole meal, but if you cook only a few it could definitely be considered a snack. (They stick to the pan super easily, so while you’re cooking them make sure you have plenty of non-stick spray or oil around.) These can be found at Costco and probably other places, but I get them from Costco. They’re really savory and great to dip in soy sauce!

Overall rating: 7/10

Lastly: Quaker Rice Crisps!


Compared to the last few snacks I’ve listed, Quaker Rice Crisps are super healthy. They come in a variety of flavors, but my favorites are cheddar and buttermilk ranch. (I’ve never actually tried the sweet & spicy chily or the sour cream & onion, to be totally honest.) I get these in a box at Costco but I know you can get them from Walmart or basically any other supermarket as well. To me, biting into these can feel like nails on a chalkboard, but in a really yummy way. Which kind of makes it worth it. 😂

Health rating: 9/10
Flavor rating: 9/10
Overall rating: 8/10

I might come out with a part two of this next year, this was a fun post to do!
