Special K Snack Bites

Kellogg’s Special K brand has branched out from cereal to offer a range of diet-friendly products, from bars to breakfast drinks. These 90-calorie “snack bites” are described as “lightly textured crunch multi-grain snacks.” The rectangle-shaped snacks look like pulverized cereal embedded in chocolate or chocolate flavoring. They’re OK. If you stretch your imagination, the texture and taste is a little like toffee. There’s a bit of an aftertaste, and it’s pretty clear these snacks are intended for a low calorie diet. Still, they’re not too bad. I got mine cheap with a coupon during a Kellogg’s promotion.

These packs are more filling than they are tasty. Ritz has packed multi-grain Ritz Bits, stick pretzels and what looks like Wheat Chex and Cheese Nips in these packs. They’re a little bland and dry, but the saltiness combined with a nice bit of carby goodness makes for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Still, I’d prefer plain Ritz.
