Healthy Food Review: The Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps
Posted May 11 2011 10:20pm
Most pretzels are pretty innocent snacks in terms of calories and fat content (unless they're dipped in chocolate or otherwise evily transformed). What you have to watch is the sodium as it relates to your overall diet, and also keep in mind that unless you're having whole wheat pretzels (which are not so easily found), it's a white flour, high glycemic product.
Now The Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps also are not whole wheat, but in terms of a low-fat, low-calorie snack food, the give you a lot of flavor and varities that will satisfy your snack cravings. Seriously, when you have plain pretzels, don't you feel like you really didn't eat anything, and you can easily overeat them if you don't count out a portion?
With Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps, the thin texture and great flavors, really make you feel like you're eating something. If I eat a portion of them (11 pretzel crisps, low fat or fat free, and just 110 calories), I'm happy and don't go looking for anything else. And since I love cheese, a flavor sensation like their Tuscan Three Cheese which will still only set me back 1.5 grams of fat, none of it saturated, same 110 calories, is a big help in keeping me slim.
My husband is a fan of the Snack Factory Buffalo Wing Pretzel Crisps, although he felt they could use
a little more flavor oomph (he always thinks things need more flavor), still has the same nutritional stats as the Tuscan Three Cheese. How else can you get the taste of Buffalo Wings in such a low-fat, low-calories way?
Also, Pretzel Crisps come in the bagel-like flavors of everything and sesame. So if you have a bagel craving, yon can save 200-300 calories opting for this snack instead of the bagel. That's a big difference!
While you have to watch how much you indulge in snack foods vs. real food, when you're craving crunch and flavor that won't damage your waistline, in my opinion, The Snack Factory Pretzel Chips with none delicious flavors to choose from are a good choice.
