You Gotta Try These

vans1I am in love with Van’s Multigrain Crispy Whole-Grain Baked Crackers. Yes, in love. See, I have a thing for crunchy, salty snacks—potato chips especially—but they usually get me in trouble, as being in their presence depletes me of all willpower and self-control. I mean, it’s bad. I have no shame. I’ve tried subbing in healthier snacks, but they always feel like lame stand-ins; they don’t hit the same pleasure notes as my beloved chips.

And that’s why I’m so happy to have discovered these crackers! They are my new go-to salty, crunchy snack, absolutely crave-able. They are light and crisp and shatter easily, similar to a (you got it!) potato chip. But they’re even better, really, because they go beyond just salty and crunchy. They’re nutty, too, with the faintest sweetness on the back end to round out the flavor. And they’re whole grain! Oh, and guess what? They’re gluten-free, too, made with whole-grain oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa, and amaranth. Our Nutrition Editor gives them a hearty thumbs-up for the reasonable calories, saturated fat (none), and sodium in a serving. Perhaps the best part? A serving is 30 crackers! Now that’s realistic… That’s a snack to love.
