It’s time once again to review some more delicious samples of products that are both good for you and for the world around you. And while this particular box was a little lighter than usual on actual samples, there were some interesting new products, and a return visit with some old favorites.
Snap Pea Crisps by Harvest Snaps – Harvest snaps is actually a division of its parent company, Calbee. Originating in Japan, making fun and unique snacks that gained widespread popularity, the company expanded to North America in 1970, and the progress continued on from there. The company introduced their Snap Pea Crisps to the public in 1999 in an effort to give consumers a product that was delicious and all-natural. In a move to support their surrounding community, they partnered with J.D. Offut, that largest producers and distributors of potatoes in the U.S., to help them connect with and utilize local farmers to source their products. Harvest Snaps come in the original snap-pea form (with four flavors) and new red lentil snaps, available in delicious Tomato Basil and Onion Thyme flavors. I received the Lightly Salted Snap Peas, and they were far more tasty than I expected them to be. I’ve tried other veggie-based “fries” and they basically come across like straws of Styrofoam. There were substantial, flavorful and crunchy. Oh, and they’re gluten-free and non-GMO. You know I’m about that life. Try some! www.calbeena.com on Twitter @HarvestSnaps or on IG #harvestsnaps
