An exotic experience with TERRA Chips

Like many people, chips are my comfort food. I can have them at any point of the day and whatever mood I am in. Whether I am happy or stressed, all I need is a packet of chips. Therefore, when I received this box of TERRA Chips last weekend, my happiness knew no bounds.

As I read “An exotic experience awaits you”, I was very excited to take a dive into the TERRA Adventures. I knew that TERRA chips are made of real vegetables and therefore, I couldn’t wait to taste them.

There were 3 bags of TERRA Chips inside the box:

-TERRA Blues
-TERRA Original
-TERRA Mediterranean

What makes TERRA Chips unique?

As I opened the first packet of TERRA Chips, I knew that I am going to have a unique experience. TERRA chips are real vegetable chips that are made from real whole vegetables such as naturally blue potato, sweet potato, yuca, parsnip, ruby dipped vegetables, batata and taro. 

Each flavor of TERRA Chips is made with a combination of a diverse range of root vegetables. They are extremely healthy as they are completely made of root vegetables.
If you are looking for healthy snacking without compromising on taste, TERRA Chips are the ideal thing for you. The delicious flavors and the vibrant colors of root vegetables make these chips a great, crunchy snack.

Terra Blues (Sea Salt)

This is the first bag of TERRA chips that I opened. The blue colored chips highlighted on the bag tantalized me. The bluish-purple colored chips are made of naturally blue potatoes. They are truly a rhapsody in blue. I loved the aroma of the chips. They tasted crunchy and had a slightly nutty flavor. The TERRA blues tasted different from normal potato chips. The crunchy taste of the chips appealed to me and I savored each one of them.

 Terra Original (Sea Salt)

Terra Original is a combination of various colored chips as it is made of taro, sweet potato, batata, parsnip, yuca and ruby dipped vegetables. As I opened the bag of Terra original, I found chips in various colors such as vibrant red, deep yellow, yellowish white, light brown, orange and white. The chips looked very inviting and they were delectably crunchy. They are perfect for healthy snacking.

Terra Mediterranean (Herbs & a hint of lemon)

Terra Mediterranean is also made of the same combination of root vegetables as Terra Original. However, instead of sea salt, herbs and a hint of lemon is used for flavor.

Product Experience

The TERRA chips looked and tasted so different from other chips that it was like taking an adventure.  I truly had an exotic experience with TERRA chips. The exotic flavor, the vibrant color and the fine texture of the chips are praiseworthy. If you like to maintain a healthy lifestyle, try TERRA chips for snacks. They are very healthy, crunchy and tasty. You can have them with your favorite beverage. You can also enjoy a bag of TERRA chips while watching your favorite movie. 

These real vegetable chips are gluten-free and are very healthy. It is the ideal choice for gourmet snacking. You can also impress your guests by preparing some food items with the chips. There are some amazing recipes listed on the website.

My family and I had an exotic adventure with TERRA chips. We loved experiencing the goodness and rich taste of root vegetables in the form of chips. Once you open a bag of TERRA chips, you can’t resist having them.

Gone With the Wind

The season of beauty 
Has gone with the wind
Leaving behind frosty thorns
Dried, dark petals
That shows no hope.
Promises and memories
Are two sisters at war
Pitted against each other
Within a blink of eyes,
Promises perish in the storm of life,
No attachment or blind ties
And look at memories
They don't leave in hurricanes and earthquakes
Even when your existence is at risk
They can never be gone with the wind.

Dear Zindagi, I love you!

Dear Zindagi,

First of all, I want to give you a big hug because no matter how much I have complained and whined, you have always embraced me with all my flaws. I love you!

Everyday, you give me reasons to be happy, make me feel myriad emotions and teach me something new. Yes, there are nights when I suffer so much that I start hating you and think that you are ugly, but you don’t give up on me. You again paint my face with a smile the next morning, bless me with love, plant hope in my heart and sprinkle dreams in my eyes.  

You have shown me that there can be beauty in ugliness, peace in cauldron and hope in despair, only if we have the eyes to see it. You have taught me that one can never run short of reasons to be happy. Living every moment to the fullest and making beautiful memories is the ticket to perennial happiness. 

You are the wisest teacher ever. I learnt from you that sadness is not my enemy. It is also a friend, just like happiness. Without sadness, happiness will lose all its meaning. You are really complicated and perhaps that’s why it took me more than two decades to understand you properly. 

That day, I was looking at a beautiful rainbow from the hills when it struck me that you are just like that. You are composed of several colors which make you look so beautiful. Happiness, sadness, love, fear, peace, anger and compassion are some of your colors that together make you so beautiful.

When my mother passed away, I thought you didn’t love me. When my grandmother got cancer, I thought you didn’t love me. When I was a lonely introvert in my high school days with not a single person willing to talk to me, I thought you didn’t love me. When I got betrayed, I thought you didn’t love me. When my heart got broken again and again into a million pieces, I thought you never loved me. 

Oh dear! I was so wrong. You brought wrong people in my life so that I understand who the right people are. You gave me superficial friends so that I recognize who my best friend is. You showed me how painful loneliness is so that I don’t give loneliness to anyone in return. You gave me the best father in the world who never made me feel my mother's absence. I can always find my mother in him. You gave me such a lovely grandmother who fought and survived the battle with cancer so that she can raise me up.  

Every scar that you have given me, I found a note of wisdom in it years later. Your way of loving is really unique. I have slowly started understanding your love. And yes, how can I forget the surprise gifts that you gave me in the form of miracles, be it soul companions or my calling? You have given me people with whom I could feel a direct soul connection and realize that magic exists.

Discovering that writing is my calling has brought me closer to myself. I have found a best friend in me. Writing has helped me unwrap the gift of solitude. I don't fear loneliness anymore. Now, I can clothe my emotions in beautiful words and put them on paper.

Loving deeply without fear, crying my heart out without any inhibition, pouring kindness in every act, smiling from the bottom of my heart are some of the most valuable things that I have learnt from you. But my favorite lesson is that I should always be true to myself and never lie to myself. I know I took a long time to learn this simple lesson. Do you think I am a bad student? Well, you see I am trying to improve every day.

I can feel your warm hug when the wind pampers my hair and the waves tickle my feet. I can also feel your hug in the smell of roses, the melody of songs, the aroma of home-cooked food and the magic of words.

Thank you so much for all the lessons. Thank you for being so patient with this student of yours. Thank you for all the hugs.

And also thank you for the wounds where you left behind your note of wisdom. 

#DearZindagi, I am so much in love with you!

Here’s a poem that I have written on you long back. Hope you like it.

People often yell and wail
‘Life! Why do you give pain?
They forget the euphoric moments
They lament, shout and complain.

Life never complains
It embraces both the tears and the smiles
That people throw in its bosom
It endures, teaches, enlightens.

Life is wiser than people
It tries to speak in innumerable ways;
The ones who listen to its tales
Savor every slice of it till death.

Love and Hugs, 

~Purba Chakraborty

Dew drops on grass!

The opaline dew drops
Shimmering on the blades of grass;
The pearly tear drops
Glistening on the word-filled pages
Speaks of an affair, mystic and beautiful.
A conversation in the emptiness of night
That happily dies with the morning sun
So that it can be reborn again at night
Away from prying eyes
In the lap of starry, ethereal silence.
