We love to try new foods. Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

Kids love to find a snack in their lunchbox, but parents are always concerned with providing healthy choices. Pretzel Crisps and Veggie Snacks have both put a twist on traditional snacks providing new
options worth a try.

2_7,2oz_PC_Deli_OrgnlPretzel Crisps are just that, thin cut pretzels that resemble a cracker. The brand has added new flavors to their Deli Style and Minis line. All varieties are certified kosher (OU).

All Deli Style flavors have 110 calories for a 1-ounce serving (10 crackers) and 1.5 grams of fat. New flavors include:
Sea Salt & Cracker Pepper with 400 milligrams of sodium per serving.
Honey Mustard & Onion with 330 milligrams of sodium per serving.

All Minis flavors have 110 calories for a 1-ounce serving but because of the smaller size, the pretzel count jumps to 35 with 2 grams of fat. New flavors include:

Original with 330 milligrams of sodium per serving.

Cheddar with 370 milligrams of sodium per serving.

Our tasters, both kids and adults, rated the Cheddar Minis as their favorite.

Though we would never suggest swapping chips for vegetables, Veggie Snacks are a good swap for traditional potato chips. As of September 2014, new to the brand’s line are Veggie Straws and reformulated Veggie Stix. Both are crispy and tasty, NonGMO
Verified (no genetically modified ingredients) and free of artificial colors and preservatives.

Sea Salt with 6 grams of fat, 170 milligrams of potassium and 200 milligrams of
sodium.

Jalapeno with 6 grams of fat, 170 milligrams of potassium and 270 milligrams of sodium.

Veggie Stix have 130 calories in a 1-ounce serving (60 stix), available in Sea Salt with 5 grams of fat, 160 milligrams of potassium and 230 milligrams of sodium.

When a serving of food supplies 10% or more of a nutrient, it is considered a good source. Both Veggie Straws and Veggie Stix provide more than 10% of the following: vitamin A (25%), vitamin D (20%), vitamin K (20%), vitamin C (25%), vitamin E (20%),
thiamin (15%), and vitamin B6 (20%). The nutrient additions come from the combination of dehydrated vegetables used to make the snack.
