REVIEW: Quaker Quakes Rice Snacks Caramel Corn
These used to be the snack of choice for my girlfriend but I haven't had them in a while. So when I decided to start this blog I knew I was going to revisit these snacks from times passed. Now Quaker has so many different flavors for these Quakes Rice Snacks but I could only get one. I mean wasn't going to review all their flavors but just for an idea they have Vanilla Creme Brulee, Apple Cinnamon, Sweet Chili, Kettle Corn, etc.).
As my item shows I chose the caramel corn Quakes rice cakes. Now if you've never had a Quakers Quakes Rice Snack well, you're missing out. They are very good. They are fluffy and airy like pop corn but a bigger size and kind of harder than popcorn as it feels there is more substance. I guess they are made like popcorn as they are made from popped whole grain brown rice, who would have thought! These caramel corn Quakes rice snacks actually taste like the old fashioned Cracker Jacks caramel popcorn snack although sans the yummy peanuts.
I suppose these Quaker Quakes rice snacks are fairly "healthy" as you get 10 grams of whole grain per 30 gram servings and each serving is only 110 calories. Of course I've never been able to control myself with serving sizes hence why I like the pre-made snack packs like Nabisco's SnackWells.
