Someone grabbing a bag of Garden Veggie Straws may mistakenly believe Veggie Straws are made primarily of vegetables other than potatoes. In fact, a quick read of the back of the bag reveals they are made primarily of potatoes and flavored with tomato and spinach. This explains why they taste so much like potato chips. The texture is light and crisp, and while it’s been many years since I’ve had pork rinds, that’s what I think of when I bite into these straws.
Sensible Portions is the name of the company. A 20 ounce bag contains 20 servings, which is about 38 straws. Each serving has 7 grams of fat. Compare that to Frito Lay Baked! Ruffles Original Potato Crisps, which contains only 3 grams of fat per 1 ounce serving.
If you can overlook the fat content, Veggie Straws are actually quite tasty, and they do have that psychological edge with that name. I feel like I’m eating healthier, even when I’m not.
