Surprisingly Delicious!!

I don't like fig newtons. The texture, the taste just was never appealing to me. My sister actually suggested I try the Newtons Fruit Crisps and assured me I would like them. So on my next trip to Walmart I happened to find them. I had a choice between Mixed Berry and Apple Cinnamon and I chose the latter. They were so tasty! The outside was crispy with a sugar like sprinkling. The filling was apple but I didn't taste cinnamon, or maybe that was cinnamon on the outside. They kind of reminded me of a poptart or an apple pie from McDonlald's. Well a low fat/low calorie version anyway. You get two crisps in the pack so you feel like you're getting a real treat!

Orville Redenbacher's 100 Calorie Mini Smart Cakes

I do not like rice cakes or anything that closely resembles them. Usually they're pretty bland and if I want a salty snack I will just eat potato chips. If I want something sweet, I will eat a low calorie cookie. Well just imagine my surprise after tasting the cheddar flavor of Orville Redenbacher's snacks. These popcorn cakes are so tasty! And only 100 calories! You can really taste the cheddar on each cake and it makes you feel like you are eating real chips. The serving size is 21g or about 15 cakes and they come in a box with six bags. Each serving has 100 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, 1 gram of dietary fiber and 180 milligrams of sodium. Not bad at all!
