Green Giant Has a Very Giant Surprise! New Sweet Potato & Veggie Tortilla Chips Review

Since I decided to start eating healthier, I’ve made many modifications to my diet.  I quit drinking pop, got rid of processed foods, have added more protein and less fat to my diet and have been eating healthier snacks.   Since I’ve been exercising 6 days a week, I always have room for a treats that I crave.  Particularly chocolate and salty treats.  You know fried salty crispy potato chips, which go perfect with a sandwich and soup.  Potato chips were a guilty pleasure of mine, but I know with my healthier lifestyle I had to let them go.  I have since replaced unhealthy chips to “healthier versions” of lower fat and calorie varieties such as baked and those made with heart healthy oils and whole grains.  To say I was excited when I saw Green Giant had a giant surprise in store for those of us living healthier lifestyles is an understatement.  Green Giant has new Veggie Chips in two great tasting varieties, Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips in Zesty Cheddar and Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips with Sea Salt.

Green Giant™ Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips – Zesty Cheddar Flavor are made with real vegetables, 17 grams of whole grain per serving (48g are recommended daily), and are naturally flavored.
Green Giant™ Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips – Sea Salt Flavor are made with real sweet potatoes and made with 14 grams of whole grain. Plus, they contains 40 percent less fat than regular potato chips!

Our family had a chance to enjoy both flavors.  I love that they are made with real veggies and real sweet potatoes. We immediately devoured the Roasted Veggie tortilla chips.  We noticed they looked similar to a favorite nacho cheddar tortilla chip everyone loves however these flavorful chips have a robust cheddar flavor with the right amount of spices with no aftertaste.  I seriously had enough time to take a few for my tasting pleasure and was left with this…

Yes, my kids and husband left me crumbs for picture taking.  Wasn’t that kind of them? That is how much they all enjoyed these chips.  Many know my son is very picky, so I asked him what he thought about them.  They are so good mom, get more.  I like the flavor and they don’t taste like they are healthy for you.  He has also been enjoying the sweet potato chips which again is a huge shock to me.

The Sweet Potato Chips are made with sunflower oil meaning these are lower in saturated fat have a slight salty flavor from the sea salt and a soft crunchy bite with slight sweet potato flavor.  You would think because these are lower in fat, calories and made with whole grains, that they probably wouldn’t taste good, but that is incorrect.  I can say both varieties will be in our home from now on.   The sweet potato chips are great alone or paired with salsa.  The kids even crushed them in their taco salads last night.  This makes me so happy that they rather reach for Green Giant Veggie Chips instead of greasy potato chips now.  They are a better option for snacking and taste great.

    I never would’ve thought of Green Giant as a company to come out with chips but those flavors look delicious.
