I found the Quaker True Delights Multigrain Fiber Crisps (can that name be any longer) during the same grocery trip where I found the popchips. There were tons of flavors (of course now I can’t remember any of them) but the two that jumped out at me were the wild blueberry and the blackberry pomegranate.
The flavors intrigued me. Something besides chocolate or BBQ or cinnamon or sea salt or cheddar or. . . ok so there are a lot of flavors out there but when was the last time you saw a chip like snack in blackberry pomegranate?
Anyway, I really these. They are sweet (maybe even too sweet), super crunchy, and chock full of whole grains.
However, their ingredient list does leave something to be desired. . .
While grain oats, sugar, whole flour, whole grain corn, whole grain brown rice, maltodextrin, polydextrose, oligofructose, salt, natural and artificial flavor, sunflower oil, soy lecithin, natural mixed tocopherols, sucralose, acesulfame potassium, citric acid
All the "extrins" and "oses" are sugars, I’m guessing. Not to mention acesulfame potassium is an artificial sweetener. I’m all for a sweet crunchy snack but considering sugar is the second ingredient isn’t that enough? What do these other sweeteners really add? Do the help preserve? I’d really like to know why this product’s ingredient list couldn’t look like this…
While grain oats, sugar, whole flour, whole grain corn, whole grain brown rice, salt, natural flavor, sunflower oil.
Notice the period.
I’d really like someone from Quaker or any company for that matter tell me why all this stuff is in there products. Inquiring minds want to know! :)
But I digress. Overall the Quaker True Delights Multigrain Fiber Crisps taste good. They are a yummy 2 point snack. Oh! I forgot the nutritional information for a 1oz serving (3 servings in a bag)…
110 cals, 1.5g of fat, 3g of fiber, 2WWP
Notice I couldn’t find a picture of them. So I thought I’d snap a few shots on the web cam to show you what they looked like. . .
Of course I had to eat that one. :)
The only place I could find them online was Amazon and they only had the blueberry.
Has anyone else tried them or any other flavors? Did you like them?
Full Disclosure: Quaker did not compensate me in anyway for this post. I purchased the product myself. Food finds are just that, things I find in my local grocery store. I do however have an Amazon affiliate account. That means if you do choose to order them from Amazon I will make a small commission.
