NataLove said, “How can this have only 1 carb per serving and taste so fantastic. You can definitely tell that it is a dieting sauce, but in my opinion only because it is a tad watery. However, it is PACKED with flavor! Semi-Sweet, mildly spicy, definitely smokey! IT is a fantastic marinade and exactly what you need in your pantry if you are dieting or in general just not trying to have as many calories with your food.”
Kim said, “I have a house full of picky eaters. Sometimes they just refuse to eat things if they think they’re too spicy. This BBQ sauce is sweet, and not spicy at all, and my young kids really enjoy it. Well, the whole family does.”

Lauren5560 loves them and said, “Oh. My. God. I was not expecting this to be so freaking good!!!! I went paleo in January and it’s tough- mainly because there aren’t many options when it comes to snacks and I can only have so much beef jerky until I’m burned out of it. Along came Bubbas!!! This is like Chex mix gone awesome. It’s really very good. Try it!! You won’t regret it!”
TERRA BBQ Sweet Potato Chips are a uniquely tasty sweet potato chip, packed with flavor. They’re Kosher and made with non-GMO ingredients and are made with real vegetables. With each bite, you’ll taste a tangy mixture of tomato, molasses, garlic, and spices. Buy a pack of 12 for $30.92.
Rachel said, “I love Terra Chips. They’re made from slices of real fruits and veggies, not some reconstituted mix of fruits and veggies. These chips are all fruit, but unlike other chips where all chips are crisp, the apple pieces in these stay chewy, and, because they are heavier, they almost all end up on the bottom of the bag.”

KS said, “Tastes great. It’s very hard for me to be vegetarian. I don’t require the taste of meat, or even the consistency to be happy, but these are awesome. Even my carnivore partner said he could eat them.”

John Spoto said, “This is a great veggie burger/ meat substitute!! Very juicy and flavorful. Cooks nice on the grill. Second only to The Beyond Burger. I would rate this as better than Boca Burger and 365 Meatless Burger. Yeah only 2 in a pack though, but Beyond Burger also comes 2 in a pack as well. I definitely recommend this burger to vegans. People who are looking to eat less meat and eat healthier can also enjoy this burger as well. Great tasting burger!!”
