It's hard to find a salty, chip-like snack that's actually good for you. I'm pretty sure I found the next-best thing!

Snapea crisps combine the best of two worlds: snow peas and potato chips. It appears that the company that makes them created some sort of delicious rice flour/pea/salt mush and formed the mixture into little pea-pod shapes. Sounds disgusting, tastes AWESOME.

The pea flavor is not very strong - Snapea Crisps mostly just taste like crunchyness and salt. That's what potato chips taste like, right?

I did not give Snapea Crisps a 5 because they are not as healthy as they could be. Each serving has a heavy amount of fat (I assume it's good fat, given the ingredient list, but still...) and 5 grams of protein (yay!) but only 1 gram of fiber. Booo!!

When you eat these crisps they leave a weird pea-colored dust on your fingers (like cheetos, but not as disgusting). They're sort of oily too, but I actually like that as far as flavor goes.

Still, if you want a snack that isn't going to clog your arteries but is still perfectly crunchy, salty, and delicious...try them. I've seen them around but the easiest place to find them is probably Trader Joes.

What did you think of this review?

I had some earlier today. Maybe not the healthiest...but tasty! I get mine at Trader Joe's as well.

Mmmmm, these have always looked tasty, but I never really thought of them as healthy.  Their snap pea shape sure is cute, though!  If you're looking for a healthy-ish, crunchy snack, you should check out Trader Joe's veggie and flaxseed tortilla chips.  So good with dip! :)

Wiki

SnapeaCrisps originate from high quality sun-dried peas. Using new and unique technology, we created the world's first easily graspable, snow pea-shaped crisp!

We have come up with a product that is pleasing to the eye as well. In fact, although SnapeaCrisps are themselves peas, the product is innovative because it retains all the unique characteristics of the peas and, at the same time, removes the pet peeves traditionally associated with them.

This product contains 17% vegetable protein and 8% fiber that comes mostly from the skin of the peas. What's more, SnapeaCrisps contain an abundance of vitamins, iron, and calcium. SnapeaCrisps deliver the pea's natural nutrients in their entirety.

Snapea Original

There are two types of flavors that can be chosen according to one's taste or the occasion. There is the Original, which has basic flavoring, and the Caesar that tastes like the popular salad. Along with carrots and celery sticks, the Original will not only go great with your favorite dip, but the dip will actually enhance the flavor of the crisps. Please give it a try.

Peas have been an important part of the human diet for approximately 8,000 years. In fact, remains of snow peas dating back to the New Stone Age (or around 4500 B.C.) have been found around a lake in Switzerland...in an Egyptian grave around the time of the pharaohs...and even in the ancient ruins of Troy. Peas have also been widely cultivated along the Mediterranean coast as well as in the area of Mesopotamia, and they ...
