Review: Quaker Wild Blueberry Mulitgrain Fiber Crisps

Along with their line of mini-rice cakes called Quakes, Quaker Oats has another line of mini-snacks called Multigrain Fiber Crisps that come in a variety of flavors.  Since I'm always looking for snack items that aren't going to break my diet, I am always willing to try out things like this and that led me to the Wild Blueberry variety of crisps.  At 110 calories per serving (about three servings per bag), this is a low calorie (and high fiber) snack treat as well.  FYI, I got this at Meijer on sale for about $1.00.

As I've mentioned in my Quaker Quakes reviews, the size of these things is slightly larger than a silver dollar.  Unlike the Quakes though, there is nothing airy and/or soft about the texture of these crisps.  They are solid and crunchy, almost like a potato chip.  Texturally, they have a shiny, yet coarse exterior.

In terms of taste, the blueberry flavoring is present, but not overpowering.  Personally, I love blueberries and would love it if these crisps had a stronger blueberry flavoring.  Unfortunately, they lack that but they do have enough blueberry that you can at least tell that is the flavor they are going for.  And when the bag specifically advertises that this does not contain fruit, that is really all you can expect.

Buy It of Fly By It?  BUY IT.  These are a tasty snack and an acceptable substitute for a potato chip if you are willing to put up with a "fruity" potato chip as opposed to your ordinary salty potato chip.
