Last week my girls at Chicago Blogger’s Network reached out to me for an opportunity to check out Popchips new fall flavor “Sweet Potato” now offered at all Potbelly Sandwich Shops. Now anyone who knows me knows I have a “healthy obsession” with Sweet Potato. Sweet Potato Pie…. Baked Sweet Potato…Sweet Potato fries…Sweet Potato Cheesecake…just to name a few of my faves. So Potbelly sent me a few coupons for free sandwiches and those moist chocolate chip cookies and it didn’t take much convincing after that. For those of you who haven’t had the opportunity to become better acquainted with Potbelly Sandwich Shops here’s a little background. Potbelly was born right here in the Windy City opening their first shop in Lincoln Park in 1996. Known for their made to order sandwiches, antique decor featuring local artifacts, and delicious shakes and sweets.
On Saturday afternoon after taking my girls to their Girl Scout troop meeting we decided to head over to Potbelly’s for a healthy dinner and to grab a bag of Popchips. I ordered a PB&J and soup for the girls (the PB&J is no longer on the menu, but they will gladly make one for your kiddies) and I ordered my usual Uptown Salad topped with chicken, fresh lettuce, apples, grapes, craisins, red onion, blue cheese, crunchy walnuts, and Potbelly’s signature vinaigrette dressing. I usually order a cup of chicken enchilada soup to accompany my salad, but it wasn’t the soup of the day so I branched out and tried the spicy black bean soup and I think it might be my new favorite. Of course I finalized my meal with a bag of Sweet Potato Popchips!
Although I have noticed Popchips in Potbelly Sandwich Shops before this was my first time trying a bag…let’s just say I have a new addiction. I have to be honest; I’m not big on healthy chips. I feel like if I’m going to eat chips, they might as well have all the taste, but these Popchips were different. They have the just the right balance of sweet, salty, and the crunch we all love. It’s safe to say I will be waiting by the mailbox for my free one-month supply!
