365 Cheddar Multigrain Chips Review

365 Cheddar Multigrain ChipsI really like Sun Chips, but the size of the Sun Chip bags in the supermarket is often too big for me. I saw this more reasonably sized bag of Whole Foods brand 365 Cheddar Multigrain Chips in Whole Foods and decided to give it a try. Ordinarily, I am not drawn to extravagantly priced organic or "luxury" food, but these chips were surprisingly reasonably priced and intrigued me.

The cheddar taste of these chips wasn't excessive so that the grainy crunch could really shine through. These chips were smaller than other chips and also had an airy texture reminiscent of potato chips. I was very pleased that the chips didn't have an oily feel, which reflected the claim of "40% less fat than regular potato chips." All in all, the snacking experience was quite acceptable. Also, according to the bag, there are 8 grams of whole grains per serving.

Upon first glance, these chips show good nutritional potential, but now let's look at the nutrition facts. A serving is 1 ounce or 16 chips which provides 130 calories, 6 grams of total fat per serving, 0.5 grams of which are saturated, no cholesterol, 2 grams of protein and 250 mg of sodium (10% of the recommended daily amount). Additionally, each serving has 17 grams of carbohydrates, which includes 2 grams of sugars, but less than 1 gram is dietary fiber, which doesn't seem high enough to be a health benefit.

I paid $2.00 for this 6 ounce bag at Whole paycheck Foods. There are some interesting differences in taste and texture that make these chips unique compared to those sold elsewhere, sort of a variation on a theme. Nutritionally, though, these chips were mediocre with practically no fiber. Looking through the reviews of Multigrain chips reviewed on Iateapie, they usually have 2-3 grams of fiber. Food Should Taste Good MultiGrain Tortilla Chips has 3 grams of fiber, while Snyder's of Hanover Multi-Grain French Onion Sunflower Chips, Tostitos MultiGrain Tortilla Chips have 2 grams of fiber per serving.

The chips were acceptable, but I don't anticipate buying them again.
