Veggie Booty

Veggie Booty
When I crave snack food, spinach, kale, cabbage, carrots, and broccoli are hardly the first things that come to mind. It seems that some slightly off person at Roberts American Gourmet differed with my opinion as these are the key ingredients they used to create Veggie Booty. As someone who is generally turned off by "health food", I was pretty sure I would that this unusual combo would taste no better than chewing on the end of a pencil. I fully expected that I would just end up discarding the bag after an initial taste. Boy was I wrong. They are great! It is a different flavor to be sure but, it is delicious. The strange combination just works. The flavors blend into an exotic flavor reminiscent of a tasty specialty popcorn. The only negative is the texture can be a bit Styrofoamy. Don’t let that scare you away, however, or you will really miss out as the flavor more than compensates. Plus, as a lover of salty flavors, Veggie Booty manages to taste salty without excessive sodium, especially when compared to other snack food choices.

I was not the only one who loves Veggie Booty in my family. The kids polished of a bag and asked for more. Even my wife, who is really skeptical of any health food, liked them.

Keep in mind, though, that these are a snack food and are a bit high in fat, so resist the temptation to eat tons of it!
