Quaker Mini Delights Chocolatey Drizzle Review

Quaker Mini Delights Chocolatey DrizzleQuaker was so confident that their "rice and multigrain snacks are satisfyingly delicious" that they sent out free samples of Quaker Mini Delights Chocolatey Drizzle. When I heard about this offer, I put in my name right away - not only do I love free things, but I can't pass up free chocolate-flavored goodies.

My Mini Delights bite sized multigrain cakes, each was about the size of a quarter, were drizzled with chocolate and packed a satisfying crunch. The multigrain flavor wasn't cardboard-y like some other whole grain snacks, and the chocolate flavor was good.

Each small 20 gram bag has 90 calories, 3.5 grams of total fat, all of which is saturated fat - 16% of the daily value. There is also 1 gram of fiber, 6 grams of sugar and 1 gram of protein.

Scanning the ingredient list, I did notice partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil and hydrogenated palm oil, which is too bad because the other ingredients are fairly decent.

Overall, I liked this snack, but I didn't love it. I do wish these cakes were a tiny bit bigger, but they made for fun finger food. They could also perhaps be even more chocolatey, and oh yeah - no partially hydrogenated oils.

This was definitely good for a free chocolate fix, but I don't think I'll be buying these in the future.
