Review: Quaker Blackberry Pomegranate Mulitgrain Fiber Crisps

Unlike their Quakes line where they have countless flavor combinations, Quaker only has two flavor combinations in their Multigrain Fiber Crisps line (I've seen them called True Delights as well, but not on this packaging).  I've already reviewed the Wild Blueberry flavor, so this time, I'll tackle the Blackberry Pomegranate variety.  These are on the lower end of the Quaker calorie scale as they are 110 calories per serving (about three per bag) and I picked these up on sale at Meijer for $1.00.

Texturally, these are the same as the Wild Blueberry version.  Slightly larger than a silver dollar, but with a coarse exterior.  Their composition is quite dense too.  Basically, it's the same composition as the Wild Blueberry version.

Much like their physical composition, the strength of the Blackberry Pomegranate flavoring is strikingly similar to the Wild Blueberry version.  You can definitely tell that there is some sweetness and tartness there, but it's not overpowering enough that it's going to make your teeth hurt.  As for whether the sweetness is the blackberry taste or the pomegranate taste, well, I can't really tell.  I can just tell that it is there.  It's a crispy mouthfeel too, so the crunch as you work your way through the bag as a snack is quite nice.

Buy It or Fly By It?  Tough one and kind of a loaded question based on whether it is on sale or not, but I would say BUY IT.  Not nearly as tasty as the Wild Blueberry version of crisps, but still tasty enough that it is deserving of a purchase, when on sale.  At full price, I don't think I would buy this one and I'd stick with the Wild Blueberry flavor.
