Product Review: Mexi-Snax stone ground tortilla chips

My family loves tortilla chips and salsa, so I decided to try a different brand than my usual. I tried the multi-grain tortilla chips from Mexi-Snax and what grabbed my attention was that these snacks are certified organic, wheat-free and gluten-free.
