  1. I love hummus with vegetables and tortilla chips. Of course the good old chocolate cravings. Love sweet potato fries so I would love to try making the chips.

  2. sweet potato chips are definitely my favorite!!! so addicting! oh and also popcorners kettle flavor YUM!

  3. omg this is awesome!! i am OBSESSED with pop chips. i would love to make some of my own and/or experiment with different vegetables!

  4. i love that a bunch of your recipies are gf, and the pop chip maker looks awesome, i would love to try it!

  5. My favorite crunchy snack is probably popcorn. I like to put a wee bit of honey on it with a pinch of kosher salt to make “kettle corn”!

  6. From the store, Cheetos (shame, I know). At home, chocolate covered pretzels. And sweet potato chips when I’m not trying to kill myself slowly :)

  7. I love baked chips…love them! But my favorite flavor is sour cream & onion & I have a terrible time finding them around here now! :(

  8. I LOVE homemade zucchini chips! The only downside is that I can go through 3 full zucchinis in one sitting by the time all is said and done :)

  9. I find myself always snacking on something crunchy! I love this collection of all of your great creations! I’d have to say…Vanilla Cake Batter and White Chocolate Chip Caramel Corn is going to be on my to-make list. And come to thing of it…most of what’s on my list is your recipes. (I always trust your recipes.) (=

  10. BBQ chips, golden oreos, and tortilla chips are my weaknesses:( my favorite healthy crunchy snacks are carrots with hummus!

  11. My favorite crunchy snack is probably trail mix! Chips would probably be tortilla, with salsa. Simple.

  12. your homemade cinnamon sugar crackers sound sooo good….by far my fav crunchy snack is tortilla chips…I know kind of boring but it is what I always go back to.

  13. I love Stacy’s pita chips in multigrain and sea salt, and Food Should Taste Good multigrain tortilla chips

  14. I am the queen of crunch. I LOVE crunchy things especially apples, BIG carrots, and popcorn.

  15. I’m addicted to Popcorners – they’re sort of new? I think? Maybe? Haha. The white cheddar flavor is the bomb!

  16. I’m sitting at the salon getting my hair colored and I shouldn’t have read this post. I am now STARVING!!! Everything looks amazing.

  17. My favorite crunchy snack is anything with a sweet & salty combo going on…like chocolate covered pretzels, or salted caramel corn.

  18. I love sweet potato chips and that small bag in the stores doesn’t last very long around here. This way I could make a lot of them, just love them!!

  19. chex mix is my favorite!! we make my grandmother’s recipe (not the one on the side of the chex box) at christmastime!

  20. Pickles! With peanut butter, obviously. But if we’re talking crackery type things, I am all about animal crackers or graham. When I ate them more, I went through phases where I would eat one kind for months and then switch; cheese-its, wheat thins, goldfish, trisuits, pretzels, even saltines.

  21. I actually make homemade potato chips in the oven all the time! However, I have been trying to find a way to make them without any oil. The dehydrator didn’t work out so well! I would love to win this.

  22. Thanks for sharing all these yummy and crunchy treats!!! I love popcorn and anything with almonds!

  23. I’ve been looking for some new crunchy snacks, so thanks for this post! I love dried fruits, almonds (especially coconut flavored) and popcorn.

  24. I like any chip that is flavoured with sea salt, normal plain chips, sweet potato chips, baked chips, kettle chips, veggie chips etc.

  25. I love any barbecue or ranch chips…which is odd, since I hate both barbecue sauce and ranch dressing! ;)

  26. Oh my goodness, where to begin?! These all look incredible, Averie. Great giveaway, too! I love a good BBQ potato chip… particularly Kettle brand!

  27. Cake batter puppy chow?! Checking that out for sure. Oh, and that pumpkin spice granola . . . I have made that dozens of times since I found the recipe a couple months ago. I eat almost every single day:) Thank you SO much for it!

    1. That puppy chow is SO good! And thanks for LMK you make the granola a lot! Not even just in pumpkin ‘season’. (there is none for me!)

  28. There is a delicious recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Crisps on Leite’s Culinaria that I LOVE. And any cheesy homemade cracker, YUM.
