Snapea Crisps

Snapea Crisps from our friendly Trader Joe's Store...cost $1.49.

Definitely a bizarre idea for a snack - baked peas??

They were wonderful! Nice and crisp - kind of melt in your mouth like Popcorn Puffs or Popcorn Twists. Salty.

If you closed your eyes, popped one in your mouth and didn't know what you were eating - you sure would not guess that it was a vegetable. I did not notice much of a green pea flavor.

The girl enjoyed them as much as I did...the boy says they were "OK" - not a ringing endorsement from him.

The ingredients are: green peas, corn oil, rice, salt, calcium carbonate, ascorbic acid.

As one cup of peas has about 120 calories and only about 6 of those calories from fat...and the snapea crisps (22 pieces) contains 150 calories and 70 of those from fat - you can see that this has moved quite from from the realm of a health food dish.
