Special K Cracker Chips (Sea Salt)

Curiosity got hold of me when I spotted Special K Sea Salt Cracker Chips in the supermarket aisle. I wondered what a hybrid "cracker chip" would taste like ... and the proclamation of "30 great tasting chips for 110 calories" on the front of the box of these baked snacks, made it even more intriguing.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 30 grams
Calories: 110
Total Fat: 2.5 grams, 4%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 230 mg, 10%
Carbohydrates: 23 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 12%
Sugar: < 1 gram
Protein: 2 grams

First thing I did after buying a box was check out what a "cracker chip" looked like. The shape was oval - reminded me of Orville Redenbacher's Caramel Mini Smart Cakes, but the texture was smoother. The taste was not quite as salty as a chip, but it had the a similar heartiness to Baked Lays Potato Chips. I liked the taste, although it is a little different and takes a bit of getting used to. A serving size of 30 chips is quite adequate.

Each serving of Special K Sea Salt Cracker Chips provides 110 calories, 2.5 grams of total fat (4% of the daily value), no saturated or trans fat, 230 mg of sodium (10% of the DV), 3 grams of fiber (12% of the DV), 2 grams of protein and less than 1 gram of sugars.

The ingredient list starts with potatoes, potato stardh & long grain brown rice flour, and is not too lengthy, with easily recognizeable ingredients. I picked up a 4 ounce box for $2.00 (on sale), and I would buy these again just to have around. The taste is not the greatest, but the nutrition facts more than makes up for it - and I could definitely get used to having this around, as well as feel comfortable giving this to the kids as a snack.
