Hey there Fitter Foodies.. Happy New Year to you!!!!!!  I hope if you’re someone who eats healthy you threw out all that wonderful holiday food or at least you are now eating it in moderation and are back on track.

I decided to get in touch with a wonderful company – Healthy Vending by h.u.m.a.n.  They have vending machines all over.  HUMAN healthy vending machines are filled with everything; snacks and drinks both hot and cold.   They describe themselves as “the world’s first health activist company to distribute eco-friendly and high-tech vending machines that only vend nutritious foods while simultaneously educating the consumer on nutrition and the products in the machine at the point of sale (via 23″ LCD screens).” I want to share some reviews on products they sent me. Over the next month or so I will be reviewing the following products that can be found in their machines.


Popchips – Sour Cream and Onion Potato


Revolution foods – Organic Mashups squeezable fruit, unsweetened – Berry flavor


Zico – Pure Premium Coconut Water with natural Mango Flavor – Yummy I can’t wait for that one


Nestle – Juicy Juice – 100% Apple Juice


Roll-ups – Simply Fruit – Strawberry


Planters NUT-rition – Wholesome Nut Mix


Cliff – All natural Crunch Granola bar – white chocolate macadamia nut


Annies – Organic Granola bar


Kashi TLC Roasted Almond Crunch


Larabar – Cherry Pie


Larabar – Cashew Cookie


So, let’s start off today with Popchips

Net Wt .8 oz(23 g)

Serving Size: 1 bag (23g/18 Chips)

Calories: 100  Calories from Fat 30

Total Fat 3.5 g

Saturated Fat 0g

Trans Fat 0g

Polyunsaturated Fat 0.5g

Monounsaturated Fat 2 g

Cholesterol  mg

Sodium 160mg

Potassium 210mg

Total Carbohydrate 16g

Dietary Fiber 1g

Sugars 2g

Protein 1g


All natural – no preservatives, no artificial flavors or colors, no cholesterol, gluten free.  Woo hoo!!!!

Let me start by saying they are not only popped but they pop in your mouth meaning they have a good texture.  They are definitely tasty and they would take away the edge for potato chips if you are watching your fat intake.  Do they have the same crunch…no…but I am just as satisfied because I normally wouldn’t eat potato chips when eating healthy…so hooray for Popchips.  I will buy them in the future.  When passing your local Human Healthy Vending Machine (http://www.healthyvending.com) give them  a try. Let me know how you rate them.


See you soon with another review…. stay tuned!!!!
