My daughter and I joined the Weight Watchers Points Plus weight loss plan two weeks ago, and my weight loss goal is 12 pounds. So far I have already lost 4 pounds, and I have been very happy with this plan and my results. When I am dieting, one of the foods that I always miss are chips. I love the crispy crunch that a potato chip or cracker offers, but I have found a good substitute with the Quaker True Delights Multigrain Fiber Crisps.
I have purchased two different flavors, blueberry and blackberry pomegranate. I really don’t care for the blueberry much, but the blackberry pomegranate is truly addictive. Although these do not contain any fruit, they have a perfect blending of both the blackberry and pomegranate flavors.
The bag states that they are made with “Other natural flavors” as well. It also tells the consumer that these are a good source of fiber, they are a baked snack, and they contain 17 grams of whole grain. I’ve found these snacks in two sized bags, 3.5 ounces and 7 ounces. The 3.5 ounce bags were on sale at Fred Meyer (Kroger) for $1.50, and the larger 7 ounce sized bags sold at Walmart for $3.38.
Each bag has a silver foil lining which keeps the Quaker True Delights Multigrain Fiber Crisps nice and fresh, but I always close my chip bags with a clip just to ensure extra freshness. The back of the bag boasts that these treats are packed with “Delicious ingredients you will LOVE to crave!”
Weight Watchers Points Plus is a program that allows you to eat any foods you want, as long as you stay within your target points for the day. One serving of these Quaker True Delights Multigrain Fiber Crisps is pretty generous, 13 pieces to be exact, and they only carry 3 Weight Watchers points! And these are good sized fiber crisps too, measuring 1 3/4″ in diameter. They look similar to a rice cake, with pieces of whole grain oats and a nice sweetened glaze on top.
According to the nutritional information on the package, one serving contains 110 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 0 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 0 mg of cholesterol, 135 mg of sodium, 23 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of dietary fiber, 6 grams of sugars, and 2 grams of protein. A serving also provides 2% of your daily iron.
Quaker True Delights Multigrain Fiber Crisps are so delicious, especially the blackberry & pomegranate version, that I have to place one serving, 13 crisps, into a lunch baggie or I would eat the entire bag at one sitting. These are that appealing to me! The snacks give me the sweet crunch of a much more fattening snack, and they take away my craving for something sweet.
Ingredients include whole grain oats, sugar, whole wheat flour, whole grain yellow corn, whole grain brown rice, maltodextrin, polydextrose, oligofructose, natural flavor, salt, sunflower oil, soy lecithin, citric acid, natural mixed tocopherols, malic acid, sucralose, and acesulfame potassium. I’m not crazy about the artificial sweeteners, but they are listed last and there is none of the after taste they often leave in my mouth.
If you are on a diet and are looking for a healthy snacking alternative, I would highly recommend the Quaker True Delights Multigrain Fiber Crisps. I love them!
