    The only thing we'd ever want to be in a long-lasting relation-chip with, is, well you guessed it, chips! Chips of any kind -- baked, fried, popped, vacuum fried or sweet, savoury, we'll also risk it and say healthy! That's how confident and smitten we are. Think about it, our companion at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, movie nights and straight through when solitude strikes, chips make every situation better.

    Which is why we want you to move over Pringles or Lay's because we've found homegrown online brands that make chips all the more exciting and interesting than it already is. You've just got to give their crunchy creations a go. Bookmark for the love of chips and order away on the LBB Shop.

    This definitely isn't new territory because we had heard of vegetable chips in the past but fruit too? Now that's #somethingdifferent! Get Chopinz for when you want to munchinz guilt-free! Their vacuum fried chips made of 100% natural veggies and fruits baked in a vacuum fryer is as healthy as it gets. If the thought of eating a vegetable chip other than potato scares, believe us the options are addictive. Sure, Sweet Potato and Beetroot are familiar territory but Okra and Garlic Chips? Yum. In the fruit section, we recommend the Mango and Jackfruit Chips.

    We're simple people, when we see the likes of Popped Barbecue Chips or Crispy Thai Caramel Coconut Chips, we throw away all our money, natch! This is exactly what happened with Natch, a premium snack brand that is vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free. Their interesting chips, like we mentioned earlier will take your palate on a journey. Especially the never-fried whole grain chips and their fingerlicking good coconut chips. Each pack is also weighed out just enough to satiate those cravings. If you like the sound of thin, crispy coconut chips, check out Bluff Snacks too! They make just this, exclusively.

    To Be Honest (TBH)

    The OG healthy chips brand, To Be Honest made real vegetable vacuum fried chips cool and super duper delicious way before anybody had heard of it in the country! Plus, their experimentations don't just stop at the usual Beet, Taro and Sweet Potato chips but push the boundaries with Tomato, Okra and Sweet Ripe Banana Chips. Add to these specially concocted spice blends and we'll tell you that eating vegetables as chips feels just as indulgent and unhealthy. Who wouldn't want chilli, amchur, coriander or Himalayan rock salt sprinkled as fairy dust on chips, amirite?

    Safe to say BRB Popped Chips are poppin' and an LBB favourite! Most if not all of our team has tried these addictive potato chips that are popped (much like popcorn) not fried to cholesterol glory, giving it the green signal each time. We love that these chips are light and crispy while still being 60% less in fat. The flavours are definitely to write home about -- made for the Indian palate you will find Bhel, Spicy Chipotle, Cheese and what we can't get enough of, Garlic. Oh, and BRB promises more chips and less air in every bag. Our prayers have finally been answered!

    Better., from its name is yelling to you that your regular bag of chips can be so, so much better than fat and air. It can be protein-packed, made entirely of chickpeas and still taste as good or dare we say, "better"!  The brand calls these crips, but hey, crisps are only the English way of saying chips. And not like we needed reasoning to munch on these. Rosemary and Rocksalt, Cracked Pepper and Supers Seeds are the flavours these are available in. The brand also makes complimentary dips to go with these for some creamy on crispy action.

    Motherland Superstore

    Welcome to South India and prepare to never leave once you get yourself a bag of the most crispy, fresh and flavourful Banana Chips from Motherland Superstore. Here's what you need to know -- these are gourmet banana chips, cut so thin and fried in edible coconut oil, they are crisp to the heavens! Motherland flavours theirs with Rock Salt, Curry Leaves, Pepper and Turmeric or Mustard. They also make Ripe Banana Chips and Tapioca Chips. These chips need no dips, they are so good!

    Tubs has got to be the wild card of chip brands on this list, period! Taking us by surprise, all their chips are made from -- wait for it -- rajama, moong dal or chickpeas aka chole. So high in protein and low in saturated fats but that isn't even what we're most pumped about! It's the sound of Moong Lime n Chilli, Rajma Cheese, Chickpea Masala, Rajma Smoky Barbecue and many, many more such flavours that has us drooling over! Can't believe we can now snack to our heart's content. *Happy tears*.
