Review of Sensible Portions Products

16 Comments 1672 views

WAY back when, I did a food find for Sensible Portions Multi Grain Mini Crisps. I found them at my local BJ’s. After writing the review the company asked if they could send me additional samples to try and I agreed. They sent a plethora of items. So many the toddler thought it was Christmas! He kept calling them presents. :) Seriously it was almost everything in their product line.

Honestly, I liked them all. I don’t think they make a product I don’t care for! Most of their snacks are "lite" but there are only a few that I buy. Mostly because of my whole grain obsession. I really try to make most of my snacks "worth it". Does that make sense? I just don’t see the reason in snacking on empty stuff (unless it’s chocolate or swedish fish or ice cream) especially is there is a perfectly tasty whole grain alternative. For example they have pita chip, love them, they taste great but they aren’t whole grain. If I have the choice I’ll toast my whole whole grain pitas or choose one of their other whole grain products. I figure the more whole grains are in demand the more they’ll make! Hopefully. :)

So here are my favorite Sensible Portion snacks…

Sensible Portions Soy Crisps

These come in awesome 1.3 oz bags. Just the perfect size for 1 serving! I don’t know about you but if I can grab a bag of anything and not worry about portions I’m psyched. Per bag they are about 150 calories, 4.5g of fat, and 2 g of fiber. That’s 3 WWP. I love them with Salsa or bean dip.

Sea Salt Soy Crisps
LOVE these. You’d link they were too plain but they are great in salsa or dip.
Honey Barbecue Soy Crisps
My favorite straight out of the bag.
Olive Oil & Herb Soy Crisps
These are good but I choose the other two first.

Sensible Portions Multigrain Crisps

These also come in 1.3 oz bag and are just as good if not better then the soy crisps! With core ingredients like whole grain corn flour, whole grain rice flour, and whole grain oat flour I live snacking them with the toddler. Plus they have great flavors! Each flavor does have other ingredients but they are all 3 WWPs per bag!!

Tomato Basil Multigrain Crisps
LOVE these. Tons of flavor. The toddler? not so much.
Apple Cinnamon Multigrain Crisps
Awesome for a sweet snack.
Cheddar Multigrain Crisps
These are my favorite with salsa or bean dip.
Parmesan & Herb Multigrain Crisps
Not my favorite but still good!
Sea Salt Multigrain Crisps
Simple again, but I love them dipped!

Sensible Portions 8 Grain Crisps

These were completely new to me when they sent them. I brought a bag to my moms over the holidays and she loved them too. Unfortunately, I didn’t keep one so I can’t tell you what the ingredient list is. But I can tell you they aver 120 calories a serving with 4g of fat and 3g of fiber. That’s 2 WWP! Here are the only flavors I tried, although they do have more.

Slightly Seasoned 8 Grain Crisps
Again, simple but tasty!
Fiesta Chili & Lime 8 Grain Crisps
This was mom’s fav! :)

They also make lots of 100 cal packs, some whole grain, some not. They do have a chocolate and cinnamon min crisps that rival the Quaker Mini Delights. All in all, I’m a fan of their products. I just wish everything was whole grain.

Has anyone else tried or seen these in stores? Around me I think I’ve only caught them at BJ’s. If you can’t find them click here to see what they have on Amazon.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

    I found these at Costco about two years ago and have been buying them for my kids ever since. They actually had their chocolate drizzle type products out before Quaker;-)

    Really! I haven’t even seen the chocolate ones around here. Then again I don’t shop at Costcos. :) Thanks!

    The thing I’ve found about all these kind of snacks is they’re about the same WWPoints as regular chips. If I liked doritos I could have 14 of those for the same points. Plus I think people think soy, rice, pita etc. is healthy and eat much more than a reasonable portion of the regular stuff. They don’t seem to have more fiber or nutrition that “regular” chips. Just my 2 cents.

    I’m totally going to look for these here in AZ – they sound delicious.

    Good point Lanette – If that’s what you like! I do find actually since these are “lighter” literally as in ‘weigh less’. I get way more then 14. A normal serving is usually 28 I think. That’s double! For me I’d rather eat “more” I feel like I’m being bad when really I’m not. It’s all my own mental mind tricks. :)

    I found them at the Christmas Tree Store. A mix box of Cinna Swirl, Cookie Dough and Pretzel Crunch. The only problem with that store is that they don’t have the same products on a consistent basis :(

    I’m going to have to check these out.

    SMK, if you find them in AZ, let me know where! (I live up in Flagstaff, but get to Phoenix once in a while.)

    I haven’t seen those before! I’ll have to check them out.

    BTW, I added you to my blog roll – I could have sworn I did that ages ago, but realized yesterday you weren’t.

    Sorry for the delay and have a great weekend!

    Oooh, they look really good! I love “more” for “less” :)

    The 8 Grain Crisps looks exactly like the 8 Grain Crisps at Trader Joe’s that goes for $1.99 a bag. I’ve tried the TJ ones before and they are delicious!!

    I saw the mention of free samples of these in your archives from last year, and just a few weeks ago, I emailed the contact info they left in the comments section. They sent me a HUGE box of samples! I love them all….

    Believe it or not, their website lists Costco, Staples & 7-11 along with a number of other stores as places to purchase Sensible Portion products. I know I’ve gotten them at Costco, but that was a while ago. It’s nice to know that they are carried at 7-11 – a sugar-free Slurpee and a package of Sensible Portions – now that’s a snack!

    I went to BJ’s on Sunday to pick these up (and Lavash bread) but I couldn’t find these anywhere! I love anything that I can grab and go because I spend so much time in the car. Oh well, I will try Costco over the weekend…

    Love the Lavash bread toasted with honey and a little dab of smart balance for breakfast! Thanks for the great finds, Roni!

    Meghan – Last time I found them in the snack aisle next to all the granola bars and stuff. They only came in a case of the 100 cal packs.

    Glad you like the Lavash! It’s one of my favs!
