Green Giant Veggie Snack Chips . . . A Whole Grain Snack with #GiantFlavor Made with Real Vegetables

Green Giant Garden Ranch Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips served in place of french fries.

Like many children, our three are anti-vegetable in varying degrees.  They actually love to eat many different fruits, but are the exact opposite when it comes to vegetables.  Our 9 year old son will eat broccoli, baby spinach, and red peppers.  Our 6 year old daughter will eat broccoli and baby spinach.  Our 6 year old son will only eat baby spinach finely chopped and cooked until they've shrunk down to almost nothing.  Now you see why I welcomed the opportunity to try the new Green Giant Veggie Snack Chips.

Of course, I could not replace vegetables with the Veggie Snack Chips, but I did use these whole grain chips to replace some not-so-good-for-you sides, such as french fries and potato chips.  The Green Giant Veggie Snack Chips are available in four varieties, of which we tried the Garden Ranch Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips (pictured above) and the Barbecue Multi Grain Sweet Potato Chips (pictured below).  I served them to our children without telling them that these chips were made with real vegetables and they turned out to be a big hit.  I should have done the same thing with my husband because he refused to try them (now you know where our children get their anti-veggie gene).  In fact, he held out for 4 days before he finally tried them and admitted that this was a snack food that he did enjoy.

Everyone in the family agreed that these chips had 'Giant Flavor', but we were divided on which one was our favorite.  Our two sons liked the barbecue flavored sweet potato chips the best, while our daughter, my husband, and myself preferred the ranch flavored tortilla chips.  In fact, our older son said he chose the barbecue chips as his favorite because the ranch flavor in the tortilla chips was too powerful.
