Sensible Portions Multigrain Parmesan and Herb Crisps Review

Sensible Portions Multigrain Parmesan and Herb Crisps"Crisps", whether they be soy, rice, or something else, are a love-or-hate affair for me. You either adore the airiness or loath it. Personally, I'm a fan of crisps (like Glenny's MultiGrain Sea Salt Soy Crisps and Genisoy Sweet Crisps Chocolate), but usually find myself hungry again about 30 minutes after eating them. For this reason, I eat them only as an occasional snack. Recently, however, I noticed Sensible Portions Multigrain Crisps on my store shelves. They are made with whole grains, all natural and baked not fried. Intrigued by the idea of a healthier, more filling alternative to white rice cakes, I decided to give these a try. I plucked a bag of the Parmesan and Herb Crisps off the shelf and headed home with my new find.

NUTRITION FACTS

When I got home, I opened the bag and was met by what looked like thin rice cakes. Happily, most of them were intact - I don't know if they're hardier than your average rice/ soy crisp or if I just grabbed a lucky bag. I took a bite of one and ...yowza! They really mean it when they say "Parmesan and Herb"! These are potently flavored little suckers. The herbs almost taste fresh, and there's plenty of cheese flavor, too. They're crisp and surprisingly light, being even airier than most soy crisps or rice cakes that I've tried. I really enjoyed these, and found a serving to keep me full for about 2 hours - enough to survive the afternoon doldrums.

Each serving of Sensible Portions Multigrain Parmesan and Herb Crisps (18) provides 120 calories, 5% of the daily value for total fat, of which only 0.5 grams is saturated. There is also 13% of the daily value for sodium along with 2 grams of fiber and protein. The ingredients list is reasonably short, containing whole grain flours, cheese powder, spices, and leaveners.

Small almost single-serving sized bags are available as well as larger ones, so if portion control is an issue for you, these crisps have you covered. I paid $1.49 for a 3 ounce bag and would definitely buy these again. I'll also be on the lookout for their other flavors.
