New Snack Obsession: Veggies that Taste like Friesposted @7:00am ET on September 14, 2009
So you must be wondering, are there really veggies that taste like French fries??
They are called various things depending on the brand, but they are most well known as "Veggie Straws" or "Veggie Chips."
They are crispy treats that are colored green (for spinach flavor), red (for tomato flavor) and yellow (for potato flavor). The straws look like French fries and the chips look like, well, chips.
These are the healthiest snack I've ever found, that actually taste similar to fries.
They are salty and a little oily to make you feel like you should feel guilty. But really, you shouldn't feel terribly guilty. The package that I bought this week from a local grocery store labeled the straws as having 130 calories for 28 straws. This is not a small portion by any means.
Just this afternoon I had a serving of these straws and wasn't hungry for another 4 hours, which for me is a long time to go without food.
So next time you're at the store wondering what you should get for your healthy snack, grab a bag of these veggie straws or veggie chips. I found them in the chips and pretzel aisle. They are delish!
