5. Symphony Chips Chip
We round off the list with a snack! Potato chips are easily a fan favorite, but this brand is a game changer.
Symphony is a family-run company that specializes in gourmet chips. They started out as a spice company selling Las Vegas chef Andre ‘Anderson’s unique blend of herbs and spices. Unfortunately the spices weren’t a hit so the team decided to offer tastings of raw vegetables and of course, potato chips in the store. Their chips quickly gained popularity when shoppers fell in love with Anderson’s (the family patriarch) spices on delicious homemade chips. The rest is history!
Symphony Chips has been featured at the Atlanta Black Star, Good Morning America, and a variety of other outlets. People can’t help but fall in love with the Anderson family and their flavorful chips! Since then, they have expanded to include three flavors: original, smoked and balsamic. Everyone has their own taste and they are all available online!
With all-natural ingredients and their family recipe, these chips are also vegan-friendly, gluten-free and safe against peanut allergies! Did we mention that there is no MSG either? This is the perfect alternative to your big brands!
