The Green Giant's GIANT Surprise is....

You guessed it!  New Veggie Chips!

All I can say after my family and I tried their Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips with Sea Salt and Zesty Cheddar Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips is that it takes some real talent to make a snack that is packed full of veggies and whole grains that my veggie-phobic husband and son will actually eat and enjoy. ;) 

Seriously.  I am always looking for ways to hide vegetables into my family's meals and snacks.  And I have been striving to really make some more healthier snacking options for myself.  Green Giant is helping to make this a little easier for me.   

The Green Giant Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips in Zesty Cheddar were mine and baby girl's personal favorites.  These chips have 17 grams of whole grains per serving, are made with real vegetables & are flavored naturally.  These quickly became our favorite afternoon snack to share.

The Green Giant Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips in Sea Salt were my husband's favorite, and this was an absolute shocker for me!  When I first handed him the bag to give him to try, he read out loud "sweet potatoes" and then crinkled up his nose in pessimistic disgust.
Then he tried one.
And then another.  And then another. 
You get the gist. ;)
He was completely surprised by this chip!  The taste was a cross between a sweet, crunchy cracker and a regular potato chip- not anything at all like you would expect from the normal sweet potato chips you are used to eating.  These were light and crispy. 
And might I add, they are packed with 14 grams of whole grains per serving and have 40% less fat than regular potato chips!

I bet you didn't know that the company who has been bringing you nutritious frozen vegetables for years could also make delicious snack chips packed full of those very same good-for-you veggies, now did you? ;)
