GIVEAWAY: Snack Guilt-Free While Devouring Harvest Snaps

When we usually snack, we tend to search for things that are delicious first, and healthy second. As you can imagine, sometimes one (the healthy) is pushed aside for the other. We were so apprehensive when we first received Harvest Snaps, because when we think of peas, we think veggie side dish you eat for health reasons, not a delicious snack. We were never so happy to be so wrong about how amazing and addictive these snacks are.


Upon first taste we were hooked and down one bag, then two……and so on of these incredibly tasty Harvest Snaps. It’s a great snack for the entire family and perfect your kids Lunchspiration. We think you’ll love them as much as we do, so we’re giving some away (details at the end of this post).

Let’s just say, we’re not the type to sing about how delicious Edamame are (it’s an acquired taste that our tastebuds haven’t fully embraced yet) but if they tasted like these Harvest Snaps, we’d clean out every store that sells them. That’s how delicious the Lentil Snaps and Snapea Crisps are. The Lentil Snaps are baked, have less sodium and 40% less fat than potato chips (they taste better too), are gluten-free, have higher levels of protein and fiber, and lower your glycemic index. The Lentil Snaps come in two delicious flavors: Tomato Basil, which perfectly combines the taste of juicy ripe tomatoes with sweet, aromatic basil, and Onion Thyme, a sweet yet tangy onion perfectly pairs with the slightly minty, dry herbal taste of thyme.

The Snapea Crisps are also baked, have less sodium and 50% less fat than potato chips (trust us, they taste amazing), are gluten-free, great source of fiber, high levels of protein and vitamin B, are Non-GMO,  and lower your glycemic index, and completely eliminates your snacker’s guilt. The Snapea Crisps are available in four addictive flavors: Lightly Salted which allows the original flavor to shine, Caesar gives the classic tangy and savory flavor without the high calories and all the deliciousness, Black Pepper gives your tastebuds a delicious and bold kick with just a pinch of pepper, and the Wasabi Ranch combines the intense flavor of wasabi and cool ranch to fascinate your senses and taste buds.

Want to try these delicious snacks or already know and want your favorite flavor? See below for a chance to win these incredible snacks:
