I'm always looking for gluten free snacks I can send with my college age daughter, Kalina, to her place and also snacks that my teenage son will eat. The teenager could care less if his snacks are healthy, as long as they taste good. On the other hand my daughter has so many dietary limitations that she is just happy to find a snack she can eat. Healthy options are usually the only options for her.
The Snapea Crisps and Lentil Snacks by Harvest Snaps gives me products that will work for my entire family. Even better, the Snapea Crisps are made with 70% all-natural peas while the Lentil Snaps are made with 65% authentic lentils. This means that my family will get protein and fiber in every bite.
It felt like Christmas opening our box from Harvest Snacks. So hard to choose which flavor to try first. Since my daughter is lactose intolerant as well as gluten intolerant, she skipped over those made with milk products and went straight for the Tomato Basil Lentil Snaps. It was love at first bite for her. It was all I could do to get her to let me have a few for review purposes. While it was her favorite, I ended up liking the Lightly Salted Snapea Crips better. The little bit of salt enhanced the pea flavor and I liked the crunch of the snacks. The Lentil Snaps ended up being a hit with both my daughter and husband as they both really liked the Onion Thyme Lentil Snaps.
My son ended up liking the Casear and Wasabi Ranch Snapea Crisps the best. I have to admit, I liked the flavor the Ceasar the best as well but my moderate case of lactose intolerance kept me from eating more than a few so I stuck with the Ligthly Salted Crisps.
Last to try was the Black Pepper Snapea Crisps. I'm not a big black pepper fan so these were my least favorite. However, the rest of the family liked them. Kalina talked her brother into letting her take them if she would leave the Cesear and Wasabi Ranch ones for him. He gladly obliged, though if he would have read the ingredients, he would have known she couldn't have eaten those two flavors anyway. He felt like he got the best end of the trade so that is all that matters, right?
I'm not one to buy a lot of snack foods but with back to school time upon us, it means we are rushing to eat in between getting out of school and getting to mountain bike practice. Caden has learned that he has to fuel up or he doesn't go very far or fast on his bike. A quick snack and dinner gives him the energy he needs for practice. Thanks Harvest Snacks for making our back to school days easier.
