If you’re craving a crunchy snack like chips but want to make a healthy choice, Aldi’s SimplyNature Green Pea Crisps baked pea snacks are a good option to try.
These crisps have the light, crunchy, airy texture of popular name-brand Funyuns, but not the onion flavor. Instead, they have a very mild pea flavor with a hint of salt. Even if you don’t like peas, these green pea crisps are worth trying because they don’t taste much like peas. They are simply a crunchy snack with a light sprinkling of salt.
Green Pea Crisps would be a good snack for toddlers who enjoy Gerber Graduates Lil’ Crunchies and similar finger foods.
SimplyNature Green Pea Crisps are baked and not fried, and they claim to have 50% less fat than regular potato chips, with fine print indicating that regular chips contain 10 grams of fat per serving, while Green Pea Crisps contain 4.5 grams of fat per serving. These crisps are 120 calories per serving, gluten free, and low in sodium, with 50 mg per serving. They contain 17 grams of carbohydrates and 0 grams of sugar. Aldi’s line of SimplyNature products also claims to be GMO free, for those who are interested.
The ingredients list for SimplyNature Green Pea Crisps is fairly simple: dried green peas, rice flour, expeller-pressed vegetable oil (sunflower, safflower, and/or canola oil), and sea salt. They are processed in a facility that uses milk, wheat, and soy, so consumers with allergies should beware.
The only drawback to these snacks is that they come in a small package containing only three servings. It’s easy to eat most of the bag in one sitting if you don’t carefully portion out your serving.
Recommended. SimplyNature Green Pea Crisps are a healthy option when you’re craving a snack with crunch.
