Apple chips from NADI
Nina Tickaradze, a native of Tbilisi, the capital of the country of Georgia, now lives in Atlanta. In 2017, she and a friend in Tbilisi decided to begin making and bottling the traditional Georgian rosehip drink their mothers and grandmothers made for them as children. Not long after, they created Happy Hearts apple chips, modeled after another childhood snack — dried fruit treats called “chiri.” The chips are available in two varieties: Ida Red and Granny Smith, and they are the thinnest, crispiest apple chips we’ve tried. The chips satisfy that urge to crunch while also tasting of rich, sweet apple. They’re addictive, but at 100 calories a bag, and only one ingredient, that’s an addiction we can live with.
