I received a sample to facilitate my review and was compensated for my review. The opinions are my own!
Since I was diagnosed with diabetes, I have been searching for low carb snacks for myself and even the kids. I figure that even though they are healthy and active, I should get them started on making better choices now. Unfortunately, a lot of the snacks I love, are full of carbs and so not good for me at all.
During my search, however, I found Sensible Portions Puffs and knew I needed to try them since they remind me (in taste) to potato chips, but they are made from corn. Also, they are not fried, they are baked.
They have no artificial flavors or preservatives, GMO and gluten free and only 17g of carbs per serving. Sensible Portions Puffs also come in 4 flavors.
Cheddar is one of my favorites, although I would love a little extra punch of cheesy goodness.
Sour Cream & Onion
Normally, I don’t like sour cream, actually, I can’t stand it. I have also never liked sour cream & onion flavored snacks, but this one turned out to be my absolute favorite of all 4 flavors. Tangy and salty just the way I like and the fact that I love these is completely unexpected.
I didn’t expect to like Tomato Basil but ended up pretty happy with these. They aren’t my favorite ones, but I will definitely be getting more of these in the future. The actually remind me of Hamburger Helper Italian Shells which, back when I ate carbs, was my favorite of the Helpers.
Since I have a serious aversion to veggies, I truly thought that I would hate these. I don’t, although if I have to choose a least favorite, it would be these, but that’s not a bad thing since I actually do enjoy them, I just enjoy the others more.
I gotta say, I am pleased that I have found a snack that is better for me than many others that I enjoy and the fact that the kids love them too, well that’s just the icing on the cake. Oh why did I mention cake?
Moving on…..if you are looking for a low carb snack, or just better for you options, definitely try these. They are available at Wal-Mart now and will be rolling into other retailers soon. Like them on Facebook for more information.
What are your favorite better for you snacks?
