Jane is an addict. There I’ve said it. She’s not in denial of her habit, and they do say that admitting you have a problem is the first step down the road to a cure. But I’m not sure that she’s seeking a cure! So what is she addicted to? SnackSalad’s Snappea Crisps.
The package is $1.49 at our local Trader Joe’s. They also sell them at Whole Foods. Every week we buy two packages. At 3.3 ounces, the packages aren’t huge. Supposedly they’re 3.3 servings for the entire bag. Jane has been known to devour an entire bag in one sitting. At 500 calories for the whole bag, she’s not beating herself up. Of course, that’s not to say that either one of us would advocate eating an entire bag in one sitting, I’m just saying you won’t have blown your entire day’s allotment of calories if you do. And if you’re eating a 2,000 calorie per day diet, you’re still way under the suggested 45 grams of fat (there are 26.4grams of fat in the bag). Now, they’re certainly not as good for you as eating an apple, but they aren’t quite as bad as potato chips. So, if you’re jonesing for a new vice… we highly recommend them. If you’re trying to eat well, you should probably go for that apple instead!
Note to our readers: The Caesar variety is made with milk, so if you’re going to try these (and are looking for a vegan snack), make sure to get the “Original” flavor, and don’t blame us when your craving your next fix!
