Saw a bag of veggie straws, and sometimes I have a hard time getting in enough veggies for my day..its all natural, lightly salted..would you think this would count as a serving of veggies? I know its a silly question, but was just curious. Does seem like a healthy snack to have.

They are amazing! Depending on what brand you get, a serving is 33 straws and its like 110 calories. I usually dip them in some BBQ sauce. I'm not sure about switching them out in place of actual veggies though...

love these! eat them all the time! I also love the apple straws they taste like Apple Jack cereal to me. I have also eatin the potato straws. 38 straws are 110 cals.

I tried the Apple straws when they were BOGO one week and they are REALLY good! the kids love them too. I haven't tried the veggie straws yet.

I like them, it's really hard to each too many of them unless you're really stuffed. I need to remind myself to get some more next time I go grocery shopping

I just finished a bag of the apple cinnamon straws & they are really good, especially if you are trying to satisfy a craving for something sweet. I plan to try the veggie straws next. I don't know if they would count as a veggie but I would think if they did there would be a claim of that on the package. I assume they are just a snack food.

While they're super yummy, they don't count as a veggie. They pretty much only put enough 'veggie' into the product to make it a certain color. Definitely not enough to count towards a serving of real vegetables.
