Blues and Red Hot Blues… WOW!!!

Sunshine Organics in the small town of Maungaturoto in Northland New Zealand is the place where I found these next gems

Blue tortilla chips are made from blue organic corn  (ALL new  discoveries for me!) and are to die for!

We tried the Blue chips first and thought “ooooh Bliss!!” … Then we tried the Red Hot Blues and I had to pinch myself to see if I hadn’t actually died and gone to heaven.

Just enough heat to make you go weak at the knees and have your taste-buds soar but  not so much that it rips your insides to bits… perfection!

I’m not mobile enough to go looking for these here in The Hague, but once I am this is the item I’d hang just out of arms reach in front of the treadmill and be prepared to walk kilometres for. … or just say heck and grab the bag and make myself decadently comfortable with the bag on the sofa LOL.

Annoyingly I was sure I’d photographed the makers details on the back of the package but can’t find the photo anywhere at the moment… but if I find it later I’ll  be sure to slot it into this post.

I dare you to find the nearest organics shop to you JUST for the hope that they stock THESE CHIPS   (at the very least) … you won’t be sorry!

  2. I’ve known about the blue corn chips for a while now. I saw them in a health food shop in central London, but didn’t buy. Not because I didn’t want to try them (blue food wouldn’t have put me off), I just wasn’t in the mood. I think we can only get them in health food or other specialist shops here. I’ve never seen them in a supermarket.

    • Pie,
      I’m sure you are right about only finding these in health food shops so far because I haven’t found them in any Kiwi supermarkets either.

      I’m making some enquiries to see if I can find if these are sold here in The Netherlands because I searched various Dutch organic shop websites and found nothing like these on their product lists. They have a “store finder” on their website but darn it’s only for the USA.

      Listing where you could get these in local shops world wide would be an EXCELLENT addition to their website don’t you think?

  3. Oh I love corn chips… Now I have to try and see if I can find these! I can feel a dangerous addiction waiting to happen… Do you remember where they were made? I’m guessing US or AUS?

    • Imported Kiwi,

      I *knew* YOU would probably love these too ! When I asked on their website if I I could get these here in NL I also asked if they had a supplier in Christchurch.

      I DO remember reading on the bag that the distributor was in Petone or Wellington or there-a-bouts but that’s not too helpful unless I can find the photo I took with the close up of the details or remember the company name of the distributor. I DO promise to get back to you pronto if my enquiries come up with more information that might be helpful for you 🙂

  4. I love Garden of Eatin’s blue corn chips! They sell them in the supermarket here in my part of the U.S. 😀 I’ve not seen the red hot ones but will have to keep a look-out for them now!

    • Carrie,
      If you don’t see them in your supermarket but they already have the blues, it’s worth asking for them: they already stock the same brand and so they may be willing to bring in a test purchase of the Red Hot’s… if they do getthem for you, grab several (or half a dozen) packets and try them (if they get as far as friends and family even better LOL) and hopefully start a “demand” that means that the supermarket will stock them on a regular basis.
      If you do find them I’ve LOVE and honest review of what YOU think of them 🙂
