The Green Snack Co. – Product Review
I have always believed that any food that is healthy can never be tasty, and that all tasty foods are loaded with unhealthy goodness. I mean think of any food item that people love & are most popular – Ice creams, Pizzas, Donuts, our very own Chole Bhature & Samosas, Pakodas & Chaat Papdis, Pastas & Sandwiches. Either loaded with sugar or with cheese & oils. And healthy foods – I know there are a lot of people who prefer eating healthy food over unhealthy, but honestly how many have a bowl of sprouts or salad as their most favorite food?
Well, that was the old me who used to believe this. Recently as more & more people are becoming health conscious, there has been a wave of awareness even when it comes to food. So many myths have been bust, so many healthy products have been made available to consumers. One such product is the snacks by The Green Snack Co.

My experience with the products
I personally loved the Quinoa Puffs – all the flavors of it. My Indian pallet accustomed tongue loved the mildly spicy & crunchy puffs. And not just me, even my daughters loved them. In no time 3 of us finished a whole stock of it munching on them.
Unlike other snack options available in market, I could not feel any oil sticking to my fingers. I did not feel any heavyness after consuming them. It’s very light to eat & great in taste snack.
On the other hand my pallet is not accustomed to kale as of yet, thus I might prefer Quinoa puffs over Kale Crisps. But my daughters enjoyed Kale crisps equally much. Well, I as a mother am happy that I have one additional snacking & munching option for them which has such a healthy base ingredient as Kale leaves.
Dreamer Mum’s Rating
I would give The Snack Co. a 4.8 / 5 rating. I tried ordering it from Big Basket, but they were out of stock thus I had to get it from Modern Bazaar. I would want to see them present at more stores & have more wide location presence to make it easier for one to order the snacks & enjoy them without having to wait for them much.
