Harvest Snaps: Veggie-Based Crisps to Help You Thrive
Farm-Direct Green Peas, Black Beans & Red Lentils are the First Ingredient in BFY Snack Lineup
Fairfield, CA – Remember the first time you tasted a freshly-picked tomato straight from the vine or fresh snap peas from a farm stand? Pair that fresh, flavor-forward taste with the undeniable appeal of a crunchy, salty snack, and the result is Harvest Snaps from Calbee North America. Farm-direct vegetables (green peas, black beans or red lentils) are the first ingredient of these better-for-you, veggie-based snack crisps, which are sold in their natural home: the produce aisle.
Featuring 30-60% less fat than regular potato chips and only 130 calories per 22 crisps, these baked (never fried!) snacks pack in 4-5g of plant-based protein, 3-5g of fiber, plus calcium and potassium in every serving. Each irresistible, crunchy bite is completely free of artificial flavors, colors, cholesterol, and the common allergens: soy, nuts, wheat and eggs.
Showing the world just how delicious healthy snacking can be, here’s how the brand’s ten creative flavor offerings break down:
- Lightly Salted (The Original!): The naturally delicious taste and powerful nutrition of green peas are the shining stars of these Non-GMO Project Verified, low-sodium and dairy-free snack crisps.
- Southern Style BBQ (New): These black bean snack crisps are bursting with a perfect balance of sweet smoky flavors and just the right amount of red pepper heat.
- White Cheddar (New): Sharp and creamy cheddar flavors “pop” in every crunchy bite of these green pea snack crisps. Cheese meets peas… yes please!
- Parmesan Roasted Garlic (New): Rich parmesan cheese is paired with savory, oven-roasted garlic to create a green pea snack crisp umami experience. Molto Buono!
- Caesar: These light and creamy pea snack crisps easily satisfy your Caesar salad cravings any time of day.
- Wasabi Ranch: The heat and bite of wasabi, paired with the creamy coolness of ranch dressing, combine to make these zippy pea snack crisps the perfect pick-me-up.
