Have you tried our Charleston coconut chips yet? They're the perfect mix of coconut strips grilled to perfection, lightly dusted with our homemade BBQ seasoning. It's an explosion of flavor! They make an excellent filling in a vegan BLT sandwich, and a great topping for salads and soups, as well as this vegan chili. The only real problem with these chips is that it's hard to not finish the bag as soon as it's open! Our coconut chips come in 3 awesome flavors: Charleston (BBQ), Hula (Salt and Pepper) and Jive (Spicy Chili). We also make plain coconut chips, which can be used in savoury AND sweet recipes! Give 'em each a try and let us know your favorite.
