Harvest Snaps Habanero Crisps Review
Oh snap! Harvest Snaps Habanero Crisps
made with Black Beans! UMM HMM. Black Beans, Yo!
What can I say?
Firstly, these summabitches have a kick! Not particularly at first, but when you swallow, count up to about 5 seconds, then you will feel it! PHEW!
I love me some hot/spicy/burning snacks sometimes and these bastards definitely satisfy. With 30% less fat than a conventional potato chip and fiber to boot, you need to grab yourself a bag of these if you haven’t done so yet.
Harvest Snaps have been on the market for some time. At first, I think they only marketed the Black Pepper and Lightly Salted varieties made from green peas. Now they produce other flavors made from red lentils and black beans NOTE! NOT ALL FLAVORS ARE VEGAN:
- Lightly Salted (green peas)
- Caesar (green peas)*
- Black Pepper (green peas)
- Wasabi Ranch (green peas)*
- Tomato Basil (red lentils)
- Onion Thyme (red lentils)*
- Mango Chili Lime (black beans)
- Habanero (black beans)
*product contains milk
Yeah. They are healthier than potato chips, but I can not remember the last time that a crumb from a potato chip left a quarter sized spot of oil on a napkin after only sitting there for less than 5 minutes! Being so greasy also means you don’t want to wipe your hands on your shirt tail or your pants like you do with them chips. It will mess you up! I think this greasy nature is due to the canola and safflower oil used to bake these. Safflower oil tends to hold up better at higher temperatures during cooking, provides a healthier oil as being a source of unsaturated fat, but tends to hang around after cooking.
indeed! These things are addicting. What happens is…you end up eating the entire package, knowing they have less fat than potato chips, and there goes your healthy snack idea! There is 3 servings per bag..and that goes quickly if you are not paying attention!
They come in this cute lil pea pod shape which helps drive home the idea that you are eating a veggie based snack!
