It all started with an interview with the stars of one my eldest daughter’s favourite dance shows. I was offered the interview, and I asked if my ten-year-old competitive dancing daughter could co-interview the dancers with me. When they said yes I challenged her to come up with some of her own questions to ask.

I shouldn’t have been surprised when the daughter of a food blogger asked “What’s your favourite snack to keep in your dance bag for between dance classes?” The dancers agreed that “apple chips” were amongst their favourite between-classes snacks, which meant at our next trip to the grocery store my daughter was on the hunt for what chips.

To be honest, I had never tried apple chips so I wasn’t really sure what to look for, where to look for them, or what they were going to taste like. But then I found Martin’s Crispy Apple Chips in the fresh fruit section (ironically at the end of the apple section) and brought them home.

We immediately threw a few into a container and into my daughter’s dance bag (as per usual we were rushing to dance). Then we popped a few into our mouths and through bites and chewing my daughter says “Mom! They’re crunchy like real chips!” Clearly… we didn’t know what to expect but we certainly were not disappointed.

Martin’s Crispy Apple Chips have now become a staple snack—not just for my little dancer, but for the whole family. Because of this, we’ve come up with some fun, easy, and yummy ways to eat apple chips that are just too good not to share!

1. In a bowl

I know it sounds simple, but apple chips have become one of our favourite crunchy snacks. Toss them in a bowl for your next family movie night.

2. In a container to enjoy while on the go

Enjoy them by putting them in containers for before and after activities, as sports snacks, or as a welcome addition to your kids’ lunchboxes.

3. As a dessert children will absolutely eat apple chips as dessert. Especially if served and/or drizzled with store-bought caramel sauce or with my Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Dip (recipe below) or even just on top of a bowl of vanilla ice cream.

P.S. You should try these options with the new Martin's Crispy Apple Chips with Chocolaty Drizzle (shown in the pic below).

4. As a sandwich topping

Stay with me on this one...I actually got this idea from the Martin’s Crispy Apple Chips website because there are some recipes like my Slow Cooker Pulled Pork, my Beef Dip or my Easiest Sloppy Joe recipes that are super yummy with a bit of sweet crunch on top.

5. With Dip

What mom isn’t always on the lookout for a quick, easy, healthy snack that their kids will actually eat? My kids love to dip crackers and veggies into dip and lately I’ve been replacing their crackers with apple chips with not a single complaint at all! Pair your apple chips with store-bought hummus or a homemade, high-protein dip like my Yogurty Peanut Butter Dip or Maple Greek Yogurt Dip (recipes below) and you have yourself the perfect snack covering some of the most important food groups!

1 individual container of plain yogurt

  Maple Greek Yogurt Dip
