Green Giant has a line of veggie chips? I didn't. But I love chips, so this campaign called out to me. I received two flavors to review, and evident by the crinkly, opened bags that are obviously not full, I did just that. I should be ashamed that I ate the equivalent of a bag's worth of chips over the course of 3 days, yet I don't because they were tasty. As always, I have my thoughts about them, since this is a review and my objective wasn't just to satisfy my penchant for savory snacks.
The difference between these chips, besides the obvious, is that the Garden Ranch is a roasted veggie tortilla chip while Barbecue is a multigrain sweet potato chip. Whole grain corn/corn flour is the first ingredient in both, with the tortilla chips containing red and green bell peppers, buckwheat, sorghum flour, millet, quinoa, and various dried vegetable powders, and the sweet potato chips containing sweet potato powder, brown and white flours, and buckwheat flours. Also, various barbecue flavorings and seasonings.
What these aren't, are "natural"; there are a few ingredients that push it away from that category. Nonetheless, they are tasty and if I found them on sale, I'd pick up another bag. Additional pros are that a serving contains between 14-18 grams of whole grains per serving and are both relatively lower in fat than other chips. Alongside a burger, dipped in hummus, or straight from the bag, they make for a delicious snack. If you'd like to try them, you can find them at various grocery stores, retailing at $3 a bag.
