Frequently Asked Questions
We use a cool new technology called popping. We start with 100% potato or corn ingredients and cook them using a combination of heat and pressure with zero oil in a mini pressure cooker type of a popping machine. After the chips are popped, we sprinkle a little bit of rice bran oil and apply the flavour. This makes our chips super light, extra crunchy, and really makes the flavour stand out.
Absolutely not! We also make India’s first ever popcorn chips which are basically popcorn, but made into chips! Level up your popcorn game with our light, crunchy and flavourful popcorn chips; and never worry about corn kernels getting stuck in your teeth. Our popcorn chips are available in 4 unique and delish flavours - Salsa, Cheese & Olive, Golden Butter and Salted Caramel.
BRB Popped Chips is a legit smart-snack with some serious healthy creds. First up, our chips have 60% less fat compared to the regular fried potato chips. Heck, even when compared to baked chips, BRB has around 30% less fat. Next, every serving of BRB Popped Chips (25 gm) has roughly only 110 calories, around 20-25% lower than fried chips and nachos. The little oil that is used in BRB chips is high quality and healthy Rice Bran Oil. Our chips have zero cholesterol and are trans fat free. The oil is never heated and only lightly sprinkled on the chips to garnish them. This also makes us one of the only healthier potato chips available in the market.
Aha, that’s a good spot – the lower oil in our chips is replaced by potato ingredients, making BRB chips more wholesome and potato-y. For the mathematically inclined, this means that BRB chips have 35% to 40% more potato ingredients than regular fried chips.
We use the highest quality Rice Bran Oil (RBO) for making BRB Popped Chips. Most packaged snacks in the market use palm or palmolein oil which has high levels of unhealthy saturated fat – we stay away from these. RBO contains higher proportions of heart-healthy unsaturated fat (75%) than saturated fat (24%) as compared to palmolein oil which has a much higher proportion of saturated fat (52%). Further, RBO is a good source of Vitamin E and also provides antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
There’s zero cholesterol in our chips. Yes, you read that right – zero, nought, shunya, null, zot – you get the drift.
Our chips are trans fat free as we use high quality Rice Bran Oil.

BRB Popped Potato Chips are made from 100% potato ingredients and BRB Popcorn Chips are made from 100% Corn. There’s no rice flour, or tapioca starch, or any other non-potato additives included in our recipe. This gives you a wholesome and satisfying potato chip and none of that rice-y taste.
Ah well, we’re glad you noticed. Each of our flavours have their own unique personality and the abbreviations denote this personality type. For example, “2M2H” stands for “too much to handle” and is the personality of our Sweet Chipotle flavour due to its hot and smoky characteristics. Does this describe your personality too? We leave you to figure out the other abbreviations on your own. Once you’ve figured it all out, do give us a shout out on Insta or FB telling us which flavour personality describes you the best.
Nope. There’s no MSG added in making our chips. Zilch. Nada.
No, we don’t add any artificial flavours or artificial colours. Some of our flavours are very complex mixtures containing tens of different ingredients to get the right taste notes, but none of them have any artificial constituents.

For the same weight, you get up to double the number of chips with BRB as compared to the leading fried potato chips or nachos brands. Furthermore, all our chips are of the same consistent size and shape. None of those teeny-weeny little bits that you get in a bag of fried chips. So, with BRB, there’s more chips, more sharing, and more fun for the entire squad.

An unopened pillow pouch of BRB chips has a shelf life of 9 months from manufacturing and our XXL tubs have a shelf life of 6 months from manufacturing.. The chips don’t necessarily go bad after this duration, but this is the recommended “use by” date. Not that we expect our packs of these delish chips to remain unopened for this long! Once opened, we recommend consuming the pack without much delay or storing any remaining chips in an air-tight container.
