Weight Watchers Jalapeno Cheese Product

I'm loving the new look of Weight Watchers products, and have been trying a few more of their products lately, including the Weight Watchers Jalapeno Cheese Wedges ... or rather Pasteurized Process Cheese Product. These 1 Point wonders are described as, "a bold and spicy flavor guaranteed to amp up your snack, NOT your PointsPlus value!"

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 wedge (19 grams)
Calories: 30
Total Fat: 1.5 grams, 2%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram, 5%
Sodium: 240 mg, 10%
Carbohydrates: 2 grams
Fiber: 1 gram, 4%
Sugars: < 1 gram
Protein: 2 grams

When I was spreading the cheese on the cracker, I only saw one or two little dots of spice, so I didn't think it would be spicy. But surprise, surprise. These wedges have quite a little kick to them - not too intense, but instead, a nice mellow but noticeable heat. I spread this all over some Kashi TLC Pita Crisps - and it was oh so yummy! Definitely competition to Laughing Cow Spreadable Cheese Wedges.

Each 19 gram Weight Watchers Jalapeno Cheese Wedge provides 30 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat (2% of the daily value), 1 gram of which is saturated fat (5% of the DV), 240 mg sodium (10% of the DV), 2 grams of protein, 1 gram of fiber and less than 1 gram of sugars.

The ingredients list - the reason why it's called "Pasteurized Process Cheese Product" and not "Cheese" includes, milk, non-fat milk, water, maltodextrin, cheese culture, milk protein concentrate, jalapeno peppers, salt, sodium phosphate, sodium polyphosphate, vinegar, sodium gluconate, potassium polyphosphate, potassium chloride, calcium propionate (preservative), calcium chloride, lactic acid, enzymes. Alas, Laughing Cow spreadable wedges have Weight Watchers beat on simplicity of the ingredients list.

I bought a container with 6 Weight Watchers Jalapeno Cheese Wedges for $2.50 - and they were gone in no time! So yes - I would get these spicy cheesy wedges again.
