Harvest Snaps For Your Next Party

As someone who embodies the phrase "snacks on snacks on snacks," I'm always looking for things to eat that are tasty and not incredibly painful on my waistline. After all, I think I've gained something like 47 pounds since moving to Austin*, which is no good.

Enter Harvest Snaps--they're like chips, but more pea-shaped. Which makes sense, since the Snapea Crisps are made from naturally dried peas, which make up 70% of the product. Meanwhile, Lentil Snaps are made from 65% Lentils and contain 5g of protein and 13% of your daily dose of fiber. And since both of these are baked, they're lower in fat and sodium than most other potato chips.

But of course, the big question you're asking yourself (, I guess, since I'm the one eating them) is "how do they taste?" Well, cheerful reader, I'm glad you asked. Harvest Snaps sent me six different flavors for samplin', and I can say there are a few real gems in here. I actually prefer the Lentil Snaps: The Tomato Basil tastes pretty close a pizza rolled up into a small chip, and the Onion Thyme is a great time for your taste buds (how clever, Joey, a pun on thyme). As for the Snapeas, they're still good, just not as tasty as the other ones; the Lightly Salted is probably my favorite, and the Wasabi Ranch is the most interesting. Though I'm not sure I could eat too many in one sitting--they pack a punch!

Alls I know is I'll be popping some of these the next time I watch football, which seems to be on the daily lately. It wouldn't hurt if you did the same.
