Okay, I thought these were real peas, dried peas. I ate them with relish. It was amazing how crunchy they were. After I had tasted them, I read the ingredients. Rice was sort of unexpected. Sooo, that is why they were sort of coated in a powder--rice powder. Once, about half way through the bag, I decided to look at the cross-section of the bitten pea. Hmmm, and where is the pea-ness inside? These had the look of a baked good with air pockets. Hmmmm?
Look at the pretty package. Doesn't it look like I bought dried peas? Maybe I wished they were dried peas?
I examined the ingredients: Green peas, corn oil, rice, salt, calcium carbonate, ascorbic acid. For a bag of snack peas, all dried out, that seemed like an okay treat--not good, mind you, but okay and sort of healthy.
No way. They just mushed peas and rice and baked it. Since I was still so drained from the tornado and aftermath and becoming feverish, my best judgment was lacking when I grabbed these.

Have I been green washed? I do eat junk food, but at least I am aware of the fact when I take the product home! The Snapea Crisps are not nutritionally recommended. The 3.3 servings were downed in two sittings and in less than 8 hours. If they dare publish the Nutrition Facts, check them out. Right now, BAM is going to close soon.
How have you been fooled about processed food lately? Have you bought without really checking the facts and been shocked at what you brought home and consumed?
