Several months ago I received a few bags of Smartfood Selects snacks as part of a mailing to dietitians. Now, I’m not a huge snacker, but once in a while, when the mood strikes, it’s nice to have something acceptable on hand. The Smartfood Selects Popped Chips (Cinnamon and Brown Sugar variety) were just sitting there waiting for me… and I succumbed. But in my defense, these were delicious and more healthful than some other options out there. Here are the crunchy details…
There are several types of Smartfood Selects snacks: the Popped Chips (in the Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Multigrain that I mentioned, as well as Feta Herb Hummus, Garlic Tomato Basil Hummus, and Italian Herb Multigrain. The Smartfood Selects line also includes Puffed Corn (in Sour Cream & Onion), and Popcorn (in Buffalo Cheddar, Parmesan Herb and Cinnamon Brown Sugar). Whew! That’s a whole lot of herbs, spices and flavor combinations! The different types of snacks vary in terms of nutrition content, but in general, here’s what the Smartfood Selects brand is all about:
- No artificial flavors or preservatives
- Real herbs and spices
- Cooked in oils that are higher in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat (such as sunflower and corn oil)
- 160 calories or less per 1-ounce serving
If you haven’t eaten puffed and popped snacks before, you may not realize that the pieces per serving are generous due to the light weight of each piece. Basically these snacks feel bigger, and more crunch equals more satisfaction for some people. One more thing – most of the snacks are now packaged in resealable bags—I like!
