Guilt Free Snacking #AGiantSurprise #spon

Pin It

I love to snack. It's my biggest issue and because of it, my weight is constantly fluctuating. Some days I do good, then others I don't. Sitting at a desk all day, it's just easier to grab that bag of chips or another packaged snack. When I'm in my zone and being productive, I don't find the time to eat. I won't even realize that I haven't eaten all day until my stomach is growling and I feel like I'm starving. I'm usually right in the middle of working and I just don't have time to cook something.

Well Green Giant just released a very Giant Surprise, New Veggie Chips. When I first heard about them, I'll admit to wondering if they actually taste good; though I was excited to try them. If there really was a better snacking option with less fat, then I had to at least try them. If they could replace my other fattening snacks, then I was all for it. After all, summer is near!

  • The Green Giant™ 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 Green Giant™ 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*!
  • *Green Giant Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips (6g per 28g serving) have 40 percent less fat than regular potato chips (10g per 28g serving).


I love potato chips, so I opened up the bag of Green Giant™ Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips – Sea Salt Flavor first. They looked similar to another kind of chip that I often eat. Their texture is a little different, perhaps a bit more airy. I popped one in my mouth and started to chew. I was surprised at the taste. It was much better than I had imagined. If I didn't know better, I would not have thought that I was eating a chips with much less fat than a regular potato chip. It didn't lack flavor at all. Actually, it was quite delicious!

Lil Man likes to snack just as much, possibly even a little more than I do. As soon as he saw the new chips that were sitting on my desk, he was begging to dive right in and try them.


He chose the Green Giant™ Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips – Zesty Cheddar Flavor to try first, mostly because that was the bag that hadn't yet been opened What is it with kids? He actually loved them! I was surprised because of the fact that he is a kid. Kids don't usually like stuff that's good for them!

Overall, my family liked the new Green Giant Veggie Chips. My favorite were the Green Giant™ Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips – Sea Salt Flavor, which I will be buying all the time now! I can finally snack without all of the guilt!

Green Giant has unearthed some surprise talents and some of them are quite interesting! I especially love the one of the guy doing the splits. How can he do that? From what every guy I know says, that would be extremely painful! The tennis racket girl is great too, what a riot! Check out the video below, it's quite interesting!

  3. I would really like to try the Green Giant Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips, because I have tried making my own chips, but they aren't really the same as store chips!

  4. How NEAT is that!? I can't say I've heard of these before now, but I'm most definitely curious about trying them ^.^

    I'm kind of like you in regards to food; Some days I can't STOP eating and sometimes, I'll go days without eating.

    Not good habits at all, I know o.O

  5. From everything I've heard about these chips, it seems like I'm more likely to like the sweet potato with sea salt over the zesty cheddar tortilla flavor. I think your review definitely helped make that decision easier because I do love my potato chips and if these less fattening chips taste almost like regular ones, I am soo there! Plus, I like whole grain! I am really going to have to find these at the store some time soon and get them because reading the reviews is making them sound really good!
