A few months ago I took a friend of mine to a warehouse store to go shopping with me. We were talking about all the different kinds of healthier snacks available and she pointed to a bag of Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps and asked if I’ve ever had them? I had indicated I had not and she told me that they were really good. I was on a strict budget that week, so I filed that at the back of my mind and apparently forgot about them the next time we were there.
Then last month I was invited to participate in a Harvest Snaps Influencer program. As a part of the program I received a box full of different flavors of Harvest Snaps. I’m the kind of person that loves crunchy, full flavored snacks so I was excited to try them to see if they were as good as my friend thought they were.
Here’s why they are a good snacking choice; a 1 oz serving (which is about 22 pieces) of the Caesar flavor (my personal favorite) has 120 calories, 5 grams of fat, 65 mg of sodium, 3 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein! Compare that to a serving of regular potato chips which has 10 grams of fat, 1 gram of fiber and 170 mg of sodium.
As you can see from my photos Harvest Snaps come in 6 different flavors. The Snapea Crisps come in Lightly Salted, Caesar, Wasabi Ranch and Black Pepper.
The Lentil Crisps come in Tomato Basil and Onion Thyme.
My preferences leaned toward the Caesar and the Tomato Basil. The Lightly Salted is just that without too much flavor at all, and the Wasabi Ranch, Black Pepper and Onion Thyme had distinct flavors and tastes that are unique but probably take a certain taste palate to enjoy fully.
For those of you looking to add a new snack to your kids’ lunch boxes, something healthier for your fans to eat on game days or something different to nosh on just when sitting watching TV, give Harvest Snaps a try and see how you like them.
My one dismay about them is the 3 oz bags are not resealable. Which makes it VERY easy to eat a whole bag in one sitting. By yourself. Which really is 3 servings. Sure not as bad as eating a bag of potato chips in one sitting, but still I think if I could have sealed that bag up I may not have eaten the whole thing. By myself. That being said, I feel a lot less guilty eating a whole bag of Snapea Crisps than when I’ve over indulged on other snacks, so there’s some good there 😉
