With healthy puffed snacks taking over the pantry, it was only a matter of time before the beloved avocado got in on the trend. For the first time ever, Avocado Puffs ($24 for eight-pack), aka puffed snacks made out of avocado, are on the market courtesy of Avo Crazy, a brand owned by The Naked Market (a by millennials, for millennials healthy food and drink company).

Are avocados worth the type? Here's what a nutritionist thinks:

I have to admit, I'm a little surprised it's just now happening. After all, there's already avocado ice cream, milk, and portable avo toast. (We've also been using avocado oil on regular chips now for years.) But it turns out that making puffed avocado snacks was tricky to execute. "The key to the product is our use of avocado powder in the puffing process," co-founder Harrison Fugman says. But as every avocado lover knows, they're a fickle fruit, taking forever to ripen and then going bad pretty quickly after being cut open. In order to make sure the powder didn't go rancid, Fugman says they dehydrate the avocados and remove the fat in the process. (Unfortunately, that means you're not getting the same healthy fats in the puff as you would in a normal avocado.)
