Green Giant™ is best known for the Ho…Ho…Ho…Green Giant™ jingle, their frozen vegetables, and their Jolly Green Giant™. But that’s about to change! They’ve joined the healthy snacking field with their new Green Giant™ Veggie Chips. As a veggie loving snacker, they wanted to know my opinion on their new healthier snack options.
Healthy Snacking Options
To find out how these new chips taste, I did an in depth study analysis….heck, who am I kidding?!? The first bag succumbed to a late night snack attack the day I received them so they didn’t even make it in to the photo. The Green Giant™ Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips – Zesty Cheddar Flavor were my favorite of the two I tasted. They’re made with vegetables and 17 grams of whole grains per serving. Granted, they have artificial colors which I’m not a fan of, but compared to traditional processed snacks they’re a huge step up in nutrition! The flavorings on these have just a tiny bit of spiciness and are very reminiscent of a taco chip loved by millions that I stopped eating because of the red dye. It’s nice to know there’s an alternative for me!
The second option is the Green Giant™ Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips. These are very thin and wonderfully crispy with a light touch of salt and a hint of sweetness from the sweet potatoes. I like them but they have a bit of an aftertaste I wasn’t expecting. They have 40% less fat that those nasty regular potato chips so they’re thankfully not greasy and they have 14 grams of whole grain. So which chip will I be buying again? The Green Giant Multigrain Sweet Potato Chip with Sea Salt! While I liked the taste of the Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips – Zesty Cheddar Flavor better, the Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips have fewer ingredients and no artificial dyes and as an added bonus they’re lower in calories as well. They’re perfectly seasoned so there’s no need for a calorie-laden dip, but if the mood strikes, they’d be fabulous with one.
