Product Review: Calbee SnackSalad Snapea Crisps (Original Flavor)

The market is flooded with snack products trying to combine nutrition and convenience and Snappea crisps is one of those products. The package states that these have been around for more than 10 years but this is the first time they have introduced a family size bag. No prizes for guessing where we got ours from, our local Costco indeed. They have no artificial flavors or colors. Snapea crisps have 3grams of fiber. They are baked and the first ingredient on the list is green peas. They did add a nice crunch to our chopped salad and blended well with the rest of the salad ingredients. They come in packs of 2 at Costco, each weighing 9oz and priced at $6.49. They are available in smaller sizes at  local grocery stores and on amazon.

Snapea Crisps

The image on the package looks like snow peas , but the actual product is lighter in color and resembles a thicker version of green veggie stix. Each 1oz serving (about 22 pieces) has 130 calories and 4grams of protein which makes me question if these are any better than regular potato crisps. A serving of regular lays has almost the same calories. Snapea crisps are made in a facility that manufactures products containing wheat, milk, soy, shrimp and fish. So if you are allergic to any of the these, please use caution while consuming this product. My verdict: This is wolf in sheep’s clothing.
