Remember the days when rice cakes, and other multigrain products, were dry and boring? Back then, these infamous healthy snacks provided no flavor whatsoever. Times have changed, and Quaker has done a fabulous job at revamping that image by providing delicious snacks that are actually good for you.
The product being reviewed today is Quaker Mini Delights Chocolately Drizzle. These yummy, bite sized snacks, are individually wrapped in 90 calorie packs. They are the perfect size for snacking in between meals, and the calories are low enough that you don’t have to feel guilty about doing it. The bags are small enough to fit inside your desk at work, or stash away to take with you on the road.
Each multigrain cake is crunchy and drizzled with a dark chocolate, which provides a very satisfying taste. The chocolate is not overwhelming, but is decadent enough to satisfy a chocolate craving, or sweet tooth fix. They are sweet enough that my children enjoyed snacking on them just as much as I did, and I felt good about feeding the kids this snack because it’s low in fat, and a healthy alternative to cookies or candy. The small sized serving bags are perfect for a quick after school snack, and are easy for the kids to serve to themselves. The servings are already pre-measured so I don’t have to worry about them (or me) overindulging.
When you’re eating these flavorful treats, you really don’t think about the fact that they are good for you. However, when you realize what they are made from, you know that they are. Some of the wholesome ingredients in Quaker Mini Delights Chocolately Drizzle are whole grain flour, yellow corn, brown rice flour.
