Jackson's Honest Chips: Review and GIVEAWAY ($59.88 VALUE)

Be sure and check out our current GIVEAWAY while you're here.


I have a confession.

I love chips. 

And when I say love, I mean love, as in close to worship.... Of all the foods I have given up since switching to a diet full of "real food" (as opposed to processed cr**) giving up chips is something I've done... sometimes.

Sure, I choose the organic, non-gmo versions of chips... but they are still chips. They are still made with rancid vegetable oils which I really, really, really should not be putting in my body.

So discovering Jackson's Honest Chips was a BIG. DEAL. 

It's coconut oil, baby!


What's different about these chips? They are fried in coconut oil! Goodbye rancid vegetable oil. Hello goodness. We have all heard the health benefits of coconut oil, even if not everyone understands just how bad vegetable oils are for our health....

The ingredient list on Jackson's Honest Chips reads as follows: organic potatoes, organic coconut oil and sea salt. That's it, folks. Honest, to honest, goodness. And only that.

I know they are better for me... But how do they taste? 


So what do chips fried in coconut oil taste like? Well, let's be honest, they taste different than what you are used to potato chips tasting like. There is a definite flavor difference. Vegetable oils are processed, denatured, stripped, and destroyed until they are a lifeless, death-giving, tasteless, rancid version of something our ancestors would have never recognized as food.

Coconut oil, however, has a taste, a flavor, it has character. So, yes, these chips taste different than your regular potato chips. And they are delicious. It took me three or four chips to adjust to the flavor difference... but than I had no problem eating four bags over less than two days. (Did I just say that? That's embarrassing....)

I already have so many ways I love to use coconut oil every day, I guess I can add eating chips to that list! And I highly recommend you do, too.

All in the family...


While I am sharing with you things I love about Jackson's Honest Chips, let me add one more thing. This company is legit, folks. They are a family. They are not some mass corporation that puts a picture of a family on their product to make it look like they are a family business, they truly are a small (very small) family business. Hop on over to their website and read their "our story" page and I promise you will fall in love with them just like I did.

And once you learn the story of how these chips came about you will want to help support this amazing family even more! These parents are unbelievably inspiring.

There you have it. That's my review. Now order yourself some chips. And while you're at it, enter to win a WHOLE case below!

Athena loves Jackson's Honest Chips just as much as I do! She's savoring her bite.

  6. They are the most wonderful chips in the world! And such a great find after being real food/paleo for 2.5 years. It is hard not to eat an entire bag every time they arrive at my doorstep. And Megan always includes such a nice note with my order. Thanks for doing the review and sharing their great story.

  11. We brought home a profoundly delayed child this summer. I am overwhelmed at the thought of revamping how we eat, but interested in giving him the best chance to progress that I can.

  12. I've been wanting to radically change my family's eating habits for a long time now, but there are so many habits that I know will be difficult to change. Potato chips are a big weakness for my guys, so these sound like an awesome alternative - thank you for this great giveaway, and for sharing their family story! :)
