Try it Tuesday.....Lays Cracker Crisps

Warning: This is a pick yer nose boring review. Quite simply, these cracker crisps are nothing special. I wanted to try them because the commercial made it sound like they would have all the taste of a chip, but in a baked cracker. I've never ever tasted a cracker that remotely resembles a chip. Still haven't. These crisps were "ok", but certainly nothing special. I tried the regular and the garlic parmesan. They also make a cheddar. The only thing I liked about them was the bag! I liked how the top comes right off instead of pulling apart the whole thing and risking them flying all over. When I first tasted them, they had an oddly familiar texture and taste to them. Then I figured it out. They tasted a bit like Flat Earth crisps. And then I found out why. Both are made by Frito-Lay! Figures. The Flat Earth has better flavors than the crisps in my opinion. Plus Flat Earth has veggies :)

My 3 WW pts wasted on the cracker crisps? (Original was 2pts)...I'd rather spend them somewhere else. Like on pizza flavored Pringles Stix or Ruffles cheddar and sour cream light chips which is also made by Frito-Lay). I can have a whole ounce of those for 1pt. The Pringles Stix are 2 pts and I did a review about them a while back. On the bright side....my 11 month old likes these cracker crisps, so all is not lost.

So what should I try next? Anyone have any thoughts? I might try some of the new Smart Ones Fruit Inspirations. I don't usually like to waste points on packaged meals like that though. They tend to be small with high sodium and low fiber. But once in awhile I find something I like regardless.

If you know of a yummy food product that I should try, pleeeeease enlighten me! How about some yummies in the freezer aisle since summer is on it's way? Well, I guess it doesn't have to be food. I can try other things like cleaning products etc. It gets tiring to see the same old things lately. I wish someone would come out with something that really makes me want to blog all about it. Time to research huh?!

Thanks again for the low down on the latest products. I don't know how you find these. Most of the time I don't even know they exist til you review them! :)

Ditto to the post above! I love your reviews!

I like the Archer Farms brand sold at Target. If you like sparkling grape juice/cider, they have a really yummy sparkling peach drink. I've liked everything I've bought by that brand. Target has some good healthier foods and organic snacks. They aren't always the cheapest, but I like shopping there for little treats. :) Can't wait to see what you pick next!
