What I’m Snacking On: Harvest Snaps
Full disclosure: Recently I was contacted by Harvest Snap‘s agency asking if I’d like a sample kit for review. While I turn down about 95% of the sample products normally offered to me, this one looked interesting. Since it seemed to be an item I might actually purchase to eat in our home in the future, I gladly accepted.
Here’s the background scoop on these: Formerly known as Snapea Crisps, Harvest Snaps just launched new flavors under the Snapea and Lentil varieties. Snapea Crisps are available in four different flavors: Lightly Salted, Caesar, Black Pepper and Wasabi Ranch. Lentil Snaps come in Tomato Basil and Onion Thyme. And yes, I got to sample all 6 of them!
My favorites were the Black Pepper and Caesar Snapea, and the Onion Thyme Lentil. That said, I really liked them all, and while they won’t be replacing real peas and real lentils in our house, I feel better about snacking on these than I do regular chips. Why? Well, the Snapea Crisps are from naturally dried peas, which make up 70% of the product, and the Lentil Snaps are made from 65% Lentils and contain 5g of protein and 13% of your daily fiber. Plus, they’re baked, not fried, and are lower in fat and sodium than most packaged snacks.
Oh, and they passed the toddler test. So on those days when I can’t seem to get Archer to eat any vegetables….I give him these. And he gobbles them up!
