Green Bean Chips. Or, in toddler - "Geen Beeeens!?"

They're just dehydrated green beans with a bit of oil and salt (though they still have less fat, calories and sodium than our favorite bitty baby bunny crackers). Despite containing no added sugar, they're incredibly sweet too. They are tasty little things.

(I wasn't being purposely mean. I needed to fix the top of the snack trap.)

I found them in the organic/natural section of Wegman's but can't seem to locate a source online. It seems that, like most magical things, they are a bit elusive.
