Green Giant Veggie Spirals™, the latest in the brand's popular Veggie Swap-Ins™ line, can save Americans more than 2 trillion calories this year if consumed in place of pasta, according to the company. Green Giant Veggie Spirals begin to hit shelves in select stores this month and are expected to achieve nationwide distribution in February.

Spiralized vegetables are an alternative to pasta, with fewer calories and fewer carbs per serving, but either required prep time and cleanup — or offered consumers short shelf-lives. The release of Green Giant Veggie Spirals (SRP $3.99) marks the arrival of an easier and faster way for Americans to enjoy this popular food swap — going from the freezer to the table in just six minutes.

"Green Giant Veggie Spirals are the latest progression in our Veggie Swap-Ins line, and perhaps our most-anticipated innovation to date, as social media has been abuzz about this release for weeks," said Jordan Greenberg, Vice President & General Manager, Green Giant. "Families are always looking for new ways to simplify their clean eating routines, especially in the New Year, and Green Giant Veggie Spirals is our answer to their call."

Green Giant Veggie Spirals are 100% vegetables, with no sauces or seasonings. Each package of Green Giant Veggie Spirals provides consumers with an easy and convenient way to add more nutritious veggies to meals. All four varieties (Zucchini, Carrots, Beets and Butternut Squash) are gluten-free, Paleo-friendly, and contain fewer calories and carbs per serving than traditional pasta. Green Giant Veggie Spirals are frozen at the peak of freshness and packaged in a convenient heat and eat container.
