If I were to describe Glenny's Salt & Pepper Soy Crisps in one word, it would be, peppery. In what I feel is a rare misstep on the brand's part, these crisps are just too much. Sure, I like pepper and the crisps are also salty, but it wasn't enough to compensate for the strong peppery taste.
Now, I don't say this lightly - you'll see we have lots of Glenny's reviews, and I've usually said good things, so it pains me to say I didn't enjoy this variety.
Each 18 gram serving of Glenny's Salt & Pepper Soy Crisps provides 70 calories, 1 gram of total fat, 380 mg of sodium (16% of the daily value),1.5 grams of fiber, 1 gram of sugar, and 5 grams of protein. The crisps are also wheat and gluten free.
The ingredients list is simply, low fat non-GMO soy flour, rice, mid oleic sunflower oil, sea salt, black pepper ... black pepper might be the last ingredient but it packs a solid punch in this case.
I walked into a nearby corner store earlier unsure of what I wanted. Did I want savory? Sweet? or a combination? I ultimately opted for the latter, picking up a bag of Glenny's Multigrain Drizzle Chips in Milk Chocolate for just $1.09. You should already know by now from all the Glenny's reviews, that I'm a huge fan, so I didn't think this was a bad choice at all. And of course, these drizzle chips were great!
I like dark chocolate better than milk chocolate, but these are quite delicious. They combine the savory flavor of soy crisps with a drizzle of sweet and decadent milk chocolate. Yum! They're satisfying for either salty or sweet cravings, and the nutrition facts are pretty decent as well.
Each 1.3 ounce bag of Glenny's Milk Chocolate Multigrain Drizzle Chips provides 150 calories, 4 grams of fat, which includes 3 grams of saturated fat (7% and 14% of the daily value), 210 mg of sodium (9% of the DV), 4 grams of fiber (16% of the DV), 8 grams of sugars and 5 grams of protein.
If you check out our reviews of Glennys products, you'll realize that we clearly have a love affair going on with these chips! To me, they're the perfect snack to fulfill any crunchy craving; you can get them in sweet and savory flavors; and they contain lots of healthy fiber and protein. What's NOT to love about these guys?? My favorite is Glenny's Lightly Salted Soy Crisps, with Apple Cinnamon coming in at a close second. But I love discovering new flavors and new favorites, so I picked up Glenny's Onion and Garlic Soy Crisps recently for $1.09, to try them out.
Have you ever had onion and garlic chips before? I used to turn my nose up at this flavor before, but when I tried it the first time, I loved the combination. And Glenny's does an excellent job with this flavor for their soy crisps. The taste is pure deliciousness with the perfect amount of onion and garlic flavoring so that it's definitely up front and center, but certainly not too overpowering. They're light and crunchy, yet satisfying as well. Health benefits touted by the company: 23 mg of soy isoflavines, more soy protein than tofu or soy milk, as well as being a wheat- and gluten- free snack.
Each serving of 14 chips provides 70 calories, 1 gram of total fat (none saturated), 175 mg of sodium, 1.5 grams of fiber (4% of the daily value), 1 gram of sugar and 5 grams of protein.
From all of the Glenny's reviews I've done, it's clear that I'm having a long standing love affair with their products, and it shows no sign of wavering. I really liked the Glenny's Cheddar Soy Crisps Review, and then I saw a bag of Glenny's White Cheddar Soy Crisps on sale at $2.19 for a huge 3-ounce bag, so I decided to try it to see if there was a difference between this "white cheddar" and the regular cheddar crisps.
Let me just tell you that this flavor is yummiliciously good (see, it even had me making up words). They're light and cheddary in that way only white cheddar-flavored things can be. The flavoring tastes natural, and goes very well with their crispiness. I can't wait to get more of these - I just wish they sold them in smaller containers, because I know I didn't just eat one serving, although I resisted eating the contents of the entire bag.
My love for Glenny's Soy Crisps should be obvious from the many reviews I've written about the different products offered by the company. The soy crisps are so good because they satisfy a crunchy, salty or sweet craving with minimal calories plus some protein and fiber for satiety. Not only that, but they taste great too! I've tried most of the flavors out there, and today I want to talk about one flavor in particular: Glenny's Barbeque Soy Crisps.
With ingredients including low fat non-GMO soy flour, rice, evaporated cane juice, sea salt, mid oleic sunflower oil, onion powder, garlic powder, calcium carbonate, tomato powder, extractives of paprika, natural smoke flavor, spices, citric acid, folic acid, vitamin D, and vitamin K, these chips are pretty natural. Furthermore, they're wheat- and gluten-free, for those with sensitivities. This flavor also has 15% of the RDA for calcium per serving (30% for an entire 2-serving snack pack). These chips are so delicious - they're salty but not too salty, and the barbecue flavor is a perfect balance between sweet (too sweet is not good at all) and savory. The crispy texture of the chips
pairs perfectly with the flavor as well.
Glenny's Apple Cinnamon Soy Crisps sounds like it has a lot of different things going on - apple & cinnamon flavored soy crisps. At $2.19 for a 3-ounce bag, I thought I would try it and hopefully, it would be added to the list of Glenny's Soy Crisps that I love, like Glenny's Cheddar Soy Crisps and the Lightly Salted Soy Crisps. For those of you who haven't had the joy of tasting the brand's soy crisps, you're definitely missing out. They're baked, not fried, and they're light and crispy while still being hearty and filling.
The savory flavors are great but sometimes sweet is the way to go. With the Apple CInnamon flavor, the level of sweetness is just perfect. As my boyfriend put it, these taste a bit like the Apple Cinnamon-flavored Cheerios. For me, though, the cinnamon and sugar flavors came through stronger - fine by me!
Each 18 gram serving of Glenny's Apple Cinnamon Soy Crisps provides 70 calories, 2% of the daily value for total fat (no saturated or trans), 4% of the DV for sodium, 1.5 grams of fiber, 2 grams of sugar (quite low for such a great sweet taste), and 4.5 grams of protein.
