Kaleamazoo Chips are delicious dehydrated chips made form kale, which means all the goodness in the kale remains after the production process is complete. They come in four flavors, “Lemony Kick-It,” which packs a bold, clean, citrusy bite, “Lime Coconut,” a milder but just as delicious variety with shreds of organic coconut and hints of organic lime juice, “Garlic Parm,” made with real high quality Parmesan cheese, and “Choco Chili Cinnamon,” a sweet and spicy flavor made with real Michigan maple syrup for snackers with a sweet tooth.
