Any HEALTHY snack that tricks my tastebuds into thinking they are one of my favorite UNHEALTHY snacks instantly goes on my best friends list. Trader Joe's, being the awesome brand that they are, really outdid themselves in my book with their Contemplates Inner Peas. Made from whole green peas, this snack tastes very much like a certain other crunchy, cheesy snack. You guessed it - Cheetos! Seriously!! With just a hint of salt, Inner Peas are the perfect "healthier choice," although their yummy goodness makes it pretty much impossible to not gobble up the whole bag. (I think my husband is still bitter about coming home and finding ours "all et up.") So wanna know what's inside?
