My Husband Isn't the Only One With A Hidden Talent

We are big time 'snackers' in our house. You will seldom open our pantry and not find at least a bag/box or two of our favorite snack cracker, chip or popcorn. But, because I know snacking can quickly turn unhealthy and glutenous, I try to keep our snacking options on the healthy side wherever I can.

Another interesting fact about our snacking habits? My husband has a secret power of sorts. This secret power enables him to eat through any and all snack food that we have in the house in record time. Sure, getting married was my first real experience keeping food in the house when living with a boy, but wow, was I in for a challenge. Gone are the days of enjoying the perfect snack for days on end. If I don't get my hands on my favorite snack within three days, it is guaranteed to magically disappear. 

So, in an effort to maintain my sanity, and not blow our entire budget on groceries, I have to have a few tricks up my sleeve, right? Because, sometimes you come across snacks that are just too good to share. Or, if you're feeling generous, you share some, and save the rest for yourself.

I am not the only one who has a few tricks up my sleeve either. Green Giant is packing a giant surprise as well in the form of their new Veggie Chips!

I received two bags of their new chips, and they were barely out of the box before we opened them up to give them a try. 

The Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips were crunchy, yummy goodness. They had the satiating flavor of a potato chip, but with 14 grams of whole grains and 40 percent less fat per serving, you can't go wrong! 

B's personal favorite has been the Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips. They're made with real veggies and contain 17 grams of whole grains. Talk about packing a punch!  

I may or may not have taken the sweet potato chips into hiding in my office for safe keeping. And now we can both indulge a little when we're craving and afternoon snack and we don't have to feel guilty about it! 

So now the two big secret's are out: my husband the ultimate snacker and Green Giant, the ultimate snack creator. Do you have a secret talent? You can show yours to the Giant on their Facebook page! Also check out other secret talents that Green Giant has found here
