My friends and I have a lot of impromptu game nights, and I make an effort to make sure everyone is well fed if they step into my house. And as much as my friends love cupcakes and junk food, I’ve found that as we get older, we’re all steering towards healthier options. Some basics I’ve started keeping on hand are things like veggies and hummus and stove popped popcorn. They’re easy to prep and everyone seems to enjoy them. But there’s one unhealthy thing I haven’t been able to fully shake: chips. I’ll bring them out with other healthy options, and my friends and I will tear through a bag like wild animals. So when Green Giant wanted me to try their “Veggie Snacks”, I got excited about the possibility of finding a new healthy item to bring to the table.
They sent me Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips in Barbecue and Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips in Garden Ranch. If you’re a sweet potato lover, you’ll like the sweet potato chips. I was hoping for a bit more of a “barbecue potato chip” feel and taste, so I didn’t love them. But the veggie tortilla chips–oh man. They taste exactly like Cool Ranch Doritos. Next step is to bring some to Taco Bell and see if they’ll turn it into a taco for me.
Next time friends pop on over, I’m psyched that I’ll have these in the pantry ready to go. And if I’m crafty enough, I may try to see if they even notice a difference between regular chips and these healthier, veggie-filled versions.
