With my kids heading back to school tomorrow, it’s important for me to have a variety of easy to grab snacks on-hand for them when they arrive home. I don’t know what it is about a full school day that leaves them absolutely famished by the time they get home, but a snack is sure to be the first thing they ask for as soon as those bus doors open.
This week we discovered a crunchy new snack bursting with flavor: Green Giant Veggie Snack Chips!
Green Giant has taken what they know best (vegetables) and made a delicious new snack perfect at any time. The two varieties we tried were Green Giant Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips in Barbecue Flavor and my personal favorite, Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips in Garden Ranch.
Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips
The Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips, combine a subtle sweet potato taste with all the zestiness of delicious barbecue flavoring. Or maybe it's the other way around? It's hard to describe, but you can actually taste a sweetness as well as a mesquite BBQ flavor within each bite.
Like a sweet potato these chips are orange in coloring and have a light airy texture to them. But once you take a bite, they pack a surprising crunch.
Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips
Did someone say ranch and roasted bell peppers? I knew right from the description on the bag I was going to love these chips! Made with dried real peppers, broccoli, tomato, carrots and corn, and dusted in ranch flavor, these chips are roasted (not fried) with goodness! While they had that familiar triangular shape the taste was one of a kind.
With regular season football quickly approaching I was hoping my husband's favorite, spicy buffalo dip, would make the perfect companion to the ranch flavor in Green Giants Veggie Snack Chips for an exciting new snack come game day.
No-Fuss Buffalo Chicken Dip
- 1 cup shredded rotisserie chicken
- 1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce
- 1/2 cup ranch salad dressing
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Colby & Monterey Jack cheese blend
- Green onion, chopped
Preheat oven to 350°. In small baking dish mix together chicken, ranch dressing, buffalo sauce, and ½ a cup of cheese; spread evenly in dish. Top with remaining cheese and bake for 15- 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.

The ranch flavor paired amazingly with the "kick" in the dip. And not only did my husband have a new favorite game day snack, but my kids where hooked. When I asked them which of the two Green Giant chip flavors were their favorite, I left them speechless - theirs a switch! Finally my son declared "we really like them both!" It's not often we come across a snack that appeals to my kids and my husband. They usually have every very different tastes. We will certainly be enjoying these chips for as a new family favorite, anytime!
