Snacks in a Snap

September 6, 2017

   If salty, crunchy snacks are your guilty pleasure, look no further. Harvest Snaps have created delicious baked snapea crisps that satisfy that potato chip craving without all the saturated fat. In fact, they have less than half the total fat of the same serving size of potato chips, and only 210 calories for the entire single serving bag. The crisps also boast 6 grams of fiber! That's 25% of your daily recommended intake. They are also high in potassium (12% DV) and protein (9 grams). 

 

   These snacks, however, are not really a health food, or something that should be eaten every day. Each bag still contains over 200 calories, which might be less than a bag of potato chips but is still slightly high for a snack if you're watching your weight. Each bag also contains 8 grams of fat, which is also fairly high considering the main source of this fat comes from the vegetable oils used in the processing. 

 

   All in all, Harvest Snaps make a great substitute when you're craving something crunchy and salty. Full of protein and fiber, they will fill you up and satisfy your taste buds. The wasabi flavor is delicious, but there are other options such as ranch, habanero, and lightly salted.
