Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Cracker Chips (Simply Multi-Grain) Review

As I was checking out all the goodies in the supermarket aisle, I came across Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Simply Multi-Grain Cracker Chips. I remember reviewing Special K Cracker Chips recently, so I wondered if this would be similar. On the PF website, this is described as, "the next best thing in snacking. All the goodness of a whole grain cracker baked into a crunchy little chip ... one tasty combination! With 60% less fat than the leading potato chip and all the delicious flavor you crave, go ahead and crunch naturally."

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 30 grams (27 pieces)
Calories: 140
Total Fat: 4 grams, 6%
Saturated Fat: 0.5 grams, 3%
Sodium: 210 mg, 9%
Carbohydrates: 24 grams
Fiber: 2 grams, 8%
Sugars: 3 grams
Protein: 1 gram

What I found is that this is very different from Special K Cracker Chips in both taste and texture. The Pepperidge Farms Multi-Grain Cracker Chips are smaller, thinner, rectangular in shape but curvy on one side - whereas the Special K ones were like round discs. The PF Cracker Chips are pretty sturdy, salty, yet with a subtly sweet multi-grain taste. I really liked them and could definitely see myself eating this instead of potato chips.

Each serving of Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Simply Multi-Grain Cracker Chips provides 140 calories from 4 grams of saturated fat, 0.5 grams of which is saturated (6% and 3% of the daily value), 210 mg of sodium (9% of the DV), 2 grams of fiber, 3 grams of sugars and 1 gram of protein.

The ingredients list starts with corn flour, vegetable oils, wheat and brown sugar. On the front of the packaging, this states that this has 60% less fat than the leading potato chip. I don't know what the leading potato chip is, but this does indeed have 60% less fat than Lays Classic Potato Chips BUT also more ingredients (including things like monocalcium phosphate and sodium acid pyrophosphate), whereas for Lays it's simply potatoes, vegetable oils and salt. That's something to think about - is the purity of the ingredients more important than 6 grams more of total fat, especially since Lays only has 0.5 grams more saturated fat? Or maybe you don't eat chips or "cracker chips" at all.

I purchased a bag of Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Simply Multi-Grain Cracker Chips for $2.49 and I would buy it again. I didn't run through these like I would have potato chips.
