Green Giant: A Giant Surprise!

We're definitely not anti-treat in this house!  I bake for F&B a lot or try to find treats that aren't too junk-filled.  One of our favorite options have always been veggie chips or veggie straws.


And that's where Green Giant's Giant Surprise comes in.  They now have a line of veggie chips too and we got to sample them!  We received a bag of the Green Giant™ Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips and a bag of the Green Giant™ Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips – Sea Salt Flavor.

So, as with any product, I rounded up F&B and told them they got to be the taste testers.  Because, as every parent knows, if the kids don't like something, there isn't going to be any way of making it happen.  And, over the years, we've definitely had our fair share of "Mama, please don't buy these again."


Thankfully, this was not one of those times!  All three of us loved them.  I even had to put the bags away so the husband can try a few and I can use them as treats in lunches later this week.  The kids absolutely loved the Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips, and said they taste just like {insert popular name brand triangular nacho cheese chip here}.  I loved the Sweet Potato Chips, thinking about hiding the rest of the bag for me.


A few nutrition facts too, which make me quite happy:
  • The 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.
  • The 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!
  • TheMultigrain Sweet Potato Chips (6g per 28g serving) have 40 percent less fat than regular potato chips (10g per 28g serving).
