flat earth veggie crisps bag

Last month I mentioned where to get a coupon for a free bag of Flat Earth Veggie Crisps. I printed out a coupon and picked up a free bag – did you?

The flavor I got was actually Herb & Garlic Field. I had thought that Farmland Cheddar and Wild Berry Patch were the only flavors, but there are actually six flavors, ranging from herbs and cheddar to peaches and berry!

I thought I knew what to expect with “veggie crisps” but I was totally wrong. These Flat Earth Veggie Crisps were definitely not what I expected!

I thought they would be chips made out of vegetables. I swear I’ve seen actual veggie chips (kind of like apple chips, which are basically dried apple slices) in certain grocery stores. So I don’t think it was unreasonable to think these were going to be dried veggie chips…

But these were heavy on the “crisp” and low on the “veggie.” They are actually just like a baked potato chip! (The main ingredients are rice flour, potato flakes, corn oil, and modified corn starch.) The 1/2 serving of vegetables per serving comes from the dried veggie powder sprinkled on top!

So what are Flat Earth Veggie Crisps?

These veggie crisps are simply a healthier version of the potato chip. They’re definitely a processed food, and not exactly healthier than crackers like Wheat Thins. Think of Baked Lays or Pringles texture plus an herb/garlic cracker flavor. The ridged texture also reminds me of Ruffles potato chips.

Basically these are a healthy alternative for those who can’t resist potato chips, but definitely not something for you to consume as health food. And they definitely aren’t a substitute for getting your vegetables!

I mean, the taste is alright, kind of like any herb and garlic cracker. But think about this:

You can eat one can of green beans, and that will give you 3.5 servings of vegetables in just 90 calories and 0 grams of fat. To get that from these Veggie Crisps, you’d have to eat seven servings (more than one bag) totaling 910 calories and 35 grams of fat!!

My final verdict is…

These are a decent substitute for regular potato chips. They’re probably better than most crackers, too, since these do indeed have a 1/2 serving of vegetables in them.

But don’t go out of your way to eat these! They’re still processed foods and not exactly healthy. Now that I’ve gotten out of the habit of eating junk food like potato chips, I’ve not even that tempted to eat these! (I’d prefer something more hearty.)

Finally, they cost $2.99 for a six ounce bag. (A six ounce bag will be gone in to time.)

So they’re expensive and not very healthy… feel free to skip these if you see them on the shelves.

  1. Whatever, Flat Earth is awesome. You just picked the wrong bag. Go for the Apple or the Peach. I’m not a health nut of any kind, and I’d eat these over regular potato chips any day. The Apple tastes like apple. The Peach tastes like peach. The Shnozberry tastes like shnozberry.

    Seriously, whether you’re a healthnut or not, try these chips. They’re delicious.

    I didn’t say they taste bad. I think I’d enjoy eating whatever bag of them I got.

    But they’re not healthy, which is why I don’t recommend them.
