One of the highlights of ExpoWest every year is what is new to the world of snacking. From unique ingredients to cleaner labels, there are some truly creative companies out there. Splash Magazines decided that with no ExpoWest this year, we would do our best to share some great products that will be tasty additions to your home.
Low carbohydrate and keto diets have become increasingly popular in the past few years, but trying to find a vessell to enjoy a sandwich or burrito is one of the main challenges of both of these diets.

Folios™ Cheese Wraps are lightly baked sheets of cheese that you can do anything with. You can use them as wraps, stuff or roll them, you can melt, crisp or baked the cheese, but whatever your choice is you will get nothing but great cheese flavor.
The Folios™ Cheese Wraps have 13g of protein and only 1g carb per serving and come in three tasty varieties, Jarlsberg, Parmesan, and Cheddar. They are the first and only wrap made of 100% natural cheese without starch, fillers or added sugar and they are naturally lactose and gluten free.

Rhythm Superfoods is always a staple of ExpoWest and they never fail to have a new product to add to their already incredible line of healthy and tasty snacks. Cauliflower has certainly taken off in many forms in the past year and Rhythm Foods came up with one of the best versions with their new Organic Cauliflower Bites. They come in three great flavors, buffalo ranch, sea salt and white cheddar and they are all packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Fiber. What makes these truly unique is that they are low heat crisped to preserve the vital nutrients and give you a slightly crispy texture but still give you that sense that you are still eating cauliflower. A wonderful texture that is unlike others. Rhythm also has carrot, beet, kale and fruit snacks. For more information, visit: Rhythm
Al Chipino is a line of tortilla chips that is quite unlike any other and definitely lives up to its moniker of “A Chip That Needs No Dip”. While torilla chips have mainly come as a plain chip or a few standard flavors, Al Chipino took on the challenge of bringing some flavors of the world to the tortilla chip. The Al Chipino flavors include: Thai Green Curry, BBQ Tikka Masala, Peri Peri, Bollywood Sweet & Sour, Salsa Picante and NY Deli Cheese.
In addition to be produced in the United States and bring all of those great flavors to each bag, Al Chipino chips are all: certified gluten-free, non-gmo, vegan, dairy-free, nut-free, cholesterol-free, msg free, trans fat free and they contain no artificial ingredients and are kosher certified.
The flavors of each Al Chipino chip will wow you with each bite as the chips are truly smothered in the region that those flavors come from. Peri Peri might be a name you are not familiar with, but it brings some of the incredible flavors of Africa to each chip, highlighted by paprika, garlic, onion and just a little bit of heat. Each variety is a true elevated chip experience.
