Kale chips in the spotlight!

Monday, October 27, 2014

A couple of our favorite blogs have posted about us recently and we want to take a minute to thank them! All of our products have recently been certified Non-GMO and Purely Elizabeth took note. Last week, Purely Elizabeth published a blog post entitled "Our Favorite Non-GMO Snacks," and our Bombay Curry Kale Chips made the cut!  Here's a little from the post:

"October is Non-GMO month–an opportunity to coordinate our voices and our actions, for our right to know what’s in our food, and to choose non-GMO. We hear about Non-GMOs and supporting Non-GMOs all the time, but here’s a quick recap to remind you what a GMO is and why you should be concerned."  "…In 30 other countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production of GMOs, because they are not considered proven safe. In the U.S. on the other hand, the FDA approved commercial production of GMOs based on studies conducted by the companies who created them and profit from their sale." "…According to the USDA, in 2011, 94% of soy, 90% of cotton, and 88% of corn and 90% of canola grown in the U.S. contained GMO’s. In addition, sugar beet, varieties of squash and Hawaiian Papaya contain high levels of GMO’s. As a result, it is estimated that GMOs are now present in more than 80% of packaged products in the average U.S. grocery store." "…Peer reviewed scientific studies have linked GMOs to allergies, organ toxicity and other health problems. Environmental issues have also been linked to genetic engineering, such as biodiversity loss, an increase in pesticide use, emergence of super weeds and unintentional contamination of non-GMO crops."

The post goes on to name our Bombay Curry Kale Chips as a favorite for Non-GMO snacks! Thanks Purely Elizabeth!

We also got a shout out from Progressive Grocer about our new Holiday Cranberry Orange Kale Chips. They highlighted their arrival in a post called "In the Spotlight: Rhythm Superfoods Cranberry Orange Kale Chips" where they had this to say:

"In preparation for the holiday season, Rhythm Superfoods has launched a limited-edition Cranberry Orange variety of its classic kale chips. Cranberry Orange Kale Chips feature a tangy and fruitful flavor reminiscent of traditional Thanksgiving favorites. Like all Rhythm Superfoods’ kale chips, the seasonal selection is certified USDA-organic and gluten-free, and is high in protein and fiber. Rhythm Superfoods Cranberry Orange Kale Chips are available in stores such as Whole Foods Market for a suggested retail price of $4.99."

Thanks Progressive Grocer!

Recent Press Mentions!

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

We've been getting quite a few shout-outs lately from various places around the web, and we just wanted to take a minute and recognize them.  It always means a lot to us when we get noticed, so we want to thank anyone and everyone who takes the time to write about us!  Here are a few of our most recent mentions.

The Wall Street Journal recently published an article titled "You Can't Corral Some Folks' Taste for Ranch Dressing" where they discuss the growing popularity of the ranch flavor.  We were happy to see that our Cool Ranch Kale Chips got mentioned!  Here's what they said:

"At Whole Foods Market, the number of ranch-flavored vegan and vegetarian snack options has nearly doubled over the past five years due to consumer demand, says Dwight Richmond, global grocery purchasing coordinator at the upscale supermarket chain. 

Among the offerings: Rhythm Superfoods Kool Ranch kale chips and ranch-flavored Go Raw Salad Snax—nonperishable munchies made from raw dehydrated kale, carrots and other vegetables."

Thank you for noticing us WSJ! 

To read the entire article on the Wall Street Journal site, click here.

We were flattered to be included in Ask Men's post "Art of IndulgeMENt: tastes," where they listed several of their favorite food indulgences.  Here's the caption from our slide:

"The humble potato chip, oh how we love you so, but oh how you hate our waistlines. Enter Superfood Chips. Companies such as Rhythm Superfoods have been looking elsewhere across the vegetable spectrum for more healthy alternatives. One of the big ones is current trendy food-du-jour, kale. The company offers flavors including Texas BBQ, mango habanero, ranch and Bombay curry. Because it’s kale, the cabbage is a good source of Vitamin A, C, K, B6 and calcium."

Check out the original post on the Ask Men website here.

We also had a great shootout on the BostInno website for being one of the foods fueling the CrossFit games athletes!

From BostInno:

"With the CrossFit games in full swing, it's time we took a look at the nutrition behind this high-intensity sport. Many CF-ers eat a diet consisting of animal proteins and lots of veggies while skipping fast food and processed carbs. This nutritional regime is also known as the Paleo diet and is practiced by more than just these powerlifting people."

Those looking for a healthy snack — that isn't celery sticks and hummus — may be unsure of where to turn when their stomachs start grumbling. Well, not anymore.

"If you've never tried kale chips, get ready for your world to be rocked. These crispy chip-like delights are raw, packed with Vitamins A, C, K, B6, Calcium, Manganese, Iron, Potassium, and fiber all while having 6g of protein.

Now this is a snack you don't have to feel guilty about munching on."

Thanks BostInno, we're glad we could be of service to all those hard working athletes!  

Check out the post on their website here.

Thank you so much for the recognition!  We know we wouldn't be the company we are today without the help of our fans!

Bloggers Take Note!

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

We just want to give a quick shout-out to the bloggers who've written about us recently.  There is truly no better way to spread the word about our products than word of mouth, and we are absolutely honored every time a media outlet notices us, be it television, newspapers, magazines, or blogs.  Here's some of the latest praise we've gotten from some great blogs!


On June 8th, Sian Bitner-Kearney, of Skinny Mom did a piece entitled ‘10 Grab N' Go Healthy Snacks,’ and we were included in the list!  She sets up the article: 

"Let’s face it, if you’re a mom it doesn’t matter if you have one child or 10, you’re life is busy, fast-paced and often lacking the extra time to prep healthy snacks for the road. Whether you’re on the lookout for superfood snacks to keep you and your diet on track, or a healthy treat for the kids that isn’t packed with sugar, these 10 healthy snack suggestions from Made Man will keep everyone completely satisfied."

We landed first on the list of her healthy snack choices. Here's what she had to say about our kale chips:

"Kale could be the trendiest vegetable on the planet right now. However, this nutritional darling is no Kardashian—the leafy green has actually earned its celebrity. A one-ounce serving of kale chips delivers a whopping three days’ worth of vitamin K (which helps blood clot and might boost bone strength in elderly folks), as well as ample doses of antioxidants vitamins A and C. And despite packing less than half the fat of regular potato chips, Rhythm Kale Chips’ array of savory flavors (honey mustard, mango habanero, Texas BBQ) keep your taste buds engaged."

Thanks Skinny Mom!

Our second blog mention comes from National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) volunteer Alex Shimalla via the Gluten-Free Hot Products website.  On June 10th she wrote a review of our Mango Habanero Kale Chips that was absolutely loaded with praise! Here's a little of what she said: 

"A few months ago, my mom sent me a care package at college. In this box was a package of kale chips. This snack has now become one of my favorite (healthy) potato chip alternatives ever! The kale has been baked so each piece is nice and crispy. In just the first bite, you’re hit with the flavor of (surprisingly) a slight cheesy note. I couldn’t imagine kale could taste so good. So, of course, I went for another bite. After I put the second few chips into my mouth, I discovered the habanero. The heat is definitely there, but—luckily for those who aren’t the biggest fans of hot foods—the heat and flavor are not overwhelming. All in all, the flavors complement each other nicely. These chips are addictive actually…I ended up eating the entire bag (which is two servings) in a single sitting.

Rhythm Superfood has truly outdone itself. Their kale chips are certified gluten-free and organic. Not to mention, their products are made with minimal ingredients, so you can feel good about eating a “chip” from a bag (nothing processed or filled with ingredients you can’t pronounce)."

Austin Woman Magazine Loves Us!

Friday, May 02, 2014

We are blessed with countless great local media outlets here in Austin.  From television and newspapers, to magazines and locally based blogs, we have a great assortment of information sources.  Nothing makes us happier than when we get specifically noticed by these local folks, so we were thrilled when we got included in Austin Woman Magazine's latest issue!  The article was entitled "Snack Attack," and gave some healthy snacking options for the health conscious snacker.  Author Andy East sets up the article by examining the current Texas health climate.

"People say everything is bigger in Texas, but unfortunately, the old adage also describes Texans’ waistlines. According to F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America’s Future, as of 2013, nearly 7.8 million Texans were clinically obese, meaning they sported a Body Mass Index of at least 30. While dieting may not be the only factor contributing to Texas’ obesity epidemic, healthy eating habits can go a long way to improving our well-being. And what better way to inject some extra nutrients in to your family’s diet than with a healthy snack? Saddle up as Austin Woman helps you stave off temptation with some delectable, healthy snacks done Austin-style."

East then suggests some healthy snacking options including nuts, kale chips, and coconut milk ice cream.  Here’s what he had to say about kale chips:

"While kale may not be everyone’s cup of tea, by adding a pinch of zest to this nutrient-rich green, kale chips could do the trick. One cup of kale contains enough vitamins and nutrients to put the entire food pyramid to shame. Just one cup of kale is loaded with more than 200 percent of the daily value of vitamin A and more than 600 percent of vitamin K, the latter of which can safeguard you from several different cancers.

Kale is also high in calcium, iron, vitamin C and potent antioxidants. In recent years, companies like Austin’s Rhythm Superfoods have begun to produce kale chips, available in an assortment of flavors such as pineapple coconut, zesty nacho and Texas BBQ. When eaten in moderation, kale chips can be a nice alternative to fried potato chips."
