I love crispy and crunchy snacks like chips, popcorn, nuts, crackers - these are the kind of things that I eat in moderate portions for my between-meal munching. Ever a fan of cheese-flavored crunchies, I decided to pick up a bag of Genisoy Crispy Dippers White Cheddar after I made some onion dip - after all, they looked to be the perfect scoop.
I was surprised at how large each crisp was - at least 1.5 inches long. Every crisp is curved to a varying degree, making some scoopers and others dippers. The texture is light, airy, and crunchy, similar to a rice cake or puffed Cheetos. The flavor is a surprisingly sharp white cheddar flavor, far more like a real cheese than the aforementioned orange Cheetos. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that only a couple were broken. My only complaint about these is that after I ate them, I experienced a "beany soy" aftertaste, which wasn't terrible, but certainly off-putting.
One serving of Genisoy Crispy Dippers White Cheddar (1 ounce, or about 12 crisps), contains 120 calories, 2.5 grams of total fat (4% of the daily value), no saturated or trans fat, 11% of the daily value for sodium (270 mg), 7 grams protein and 16 grams of carbohydrates which includes 2 grams of fiber and 1 gram of sugar.
One bag cost me $2.oo which was a sticker shock for it being only 3 ounces! The nutritive stats are pretty impressive though and with the exception of the aftertaste, the flavor is great. But with the cost, I'll only buy these on sale.
