Frozen Peas as a Snack?

Saw this the other day...

Here are snack ideas...They expect you to eat frozen peas out of the bag.

Am I weird to think? HOW GROSS!

"9 Healthy Snacks for Dieters"

Ditching the celery sticks doesn't mean abandoning the whole food group. Frozen vegetables often taste better because they're not turning into starch, like their produce-aisle counterparts. Freezing vegetables seals in their naturally sweet flavor.

Half of a cup of peas has 55 calories and 3 g of fiber; the same amount of corn contains 72 calories with 2 g of fiber. The high-fiber and low-calorie-density combination means they're filling and satisfying, and the frozen part makes them interesting. They're firm, but not rock hard, and they melt in your mouth.

Why not tell people to go eat some cardboard or something?


  1. I absolutely love frozen peas, I eat them all the time as a snack. Did you try it ?

  2. They're actually quite good. I eat raw peas also and raw zucchini. Different tastes I guess. :)
