Green Giant Veggie snack chips Review

As a Bzzagent, I had the chance to try out a new, yummy and healthy snack chip by Green Giant. This is a really satisfying snack and I throughly enjoyed the flavors they provided me with.

I received the flavors:
  • My favorite, the Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips with Zesty Cheddar - A crispy tortilla chip made with real veggies, like carrot, broccoli, and tomato, plus 17g of whole grain.
  • Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips with Sea Salt - A multigrain chip made with real sweet potatoes and 14g of whole grain, with 40% less fat than regular potato chips!

I dipped the sweet potato and cheesy chips in some sour cream and salsa, as that was all I had on hand for a dip and it was delicious!

These chips have 40% less fat than regular potato chips and they remind me a lot of Sun chips in terms of taste and texture, so it's a competitive brand. I would say these are pretty healthy. Not the healthiest I have had, but the reduction of fat is good.  They had more oil than I would have expected for a healthy chip. I think as a midday small snack, they are just fine if you are on a diet. Just don't go overboard. 

To see just how they stack up to Doritos, here is some nutrition info.  

Verdict? Not a huge difference, but still better for you.

So if you miss that cheesy goodness from Doritos, here's a slightly healthier replacement. You won't notice a big difference in taste.

The Sweet potato chips are have less flavor and less salt, but aren't bland at all and I am a huge sweet potato lover, so I loved these too.

If i can find these in my Publix, I will probably grab a bag again for quick go to snacking.
