{Review} Green Giant Veggie Chips

by Heidi on August 13, 2013

I often find that as a part time work at home mama, I forget to feed myself a real meal or two during the day. Between entertaining baby, churning out articles and blog posts and getting work done for my job, I struggle to find or make the time. Time flies when you’re having fun, what can I say?

The other day, I actually had lunch, and then, later in the afternoon as I was writing more during nap time, had a snack. Let me tell you about the amazing chips I got to try out from Green Giant.

Listen up friends, there’s a new chip in town.

I’m usually more of a sweets kind of gal but sweet potato anything has me drooling. Same with Ranch. Nom nom nom. So when I got the opportunity to try out some new chippers, I jumped up – after all, I’m quite familiar with Green Giant veggies – especially their frozen selections which I’m a big fan of.

Normally, I’m not a huge fan of BBQ chips. My dad used to always get them on car trips and the smell used to really just…irk me. But these? Not too salty, not too BBQ-y, and the sweet potato isn’t greasy like other potato chips. Really it was just a yummy combination. That handful you see there? Is a serving.

I did however, enjoy the sweet potato chips a bit more than the Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips – they were still tasty but reminded me a little too much of Cooler Ranch Dorito chips. That being said, these re decidedly much better than my lunch of choice from 1997. The flavor wasn’t over powering and definitely had that distinct tortilla chip texture. Yum.

{Again, that’s a serving of the Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips – a nice sized snack for a mid afternoon salt craving!}

Both types of Green Giant chips are made with real veggies. Neither flavor was overly salty nor were the flavors over powering. If there’s one thing I really don’t like when it comes to chips is greasy-ness and residue. These had neither! Huzzah!

Next time, I’m going to dip these in hummus – perhaps Roasted Red Pepper hummus or Tomato Basil Hummus (from Trader Joes that I eat with EVERYTHING) because it goes with everything and the creaminess would be a delicious compliment to the flavors and textures these have. But really, they’re pretty amazing on their own too.

What’s your favorite afternoon snack? Are you a sweet or salty treat eater?
