Pumpkins on your mind? Maybe some cranberries? Pair the flavors with tortilla chips and you’ve got a seasonal treat from Way Better Snacks. Its “limited edition” chips — called Oh, My Sweet Punkin Cranberry Tortilla Chips — includes these two fall favorites, along with some raspberries in the mix.

The company, which relocated here from Long Island, N.Y., now calls the North Loop of downtown Minneapolis home. It makes tortilla chips in a variety of flavors with the sprouted seeds of such ingredients as flax seed and quinoa. The chips also are gluten-free, non-GMO, kosher and vegan.

But how do the pumpkin-cranberry chips taste? The berries add a pleasing tang to the corn chips; the pumpkin isn’t readily apparent, except in the aftertaste. They have an almost cracker-like texture that would hold up well with a dip.

$3.49 for 6 ounces; available at Whole Foods and food co-ops through January.
