When it comes to snacking, there is a lot of conflicting information floating around out there. To some, snacking is unhealthy and should be avoided, and to others, snacking is attached to guilt. I, however, fall into another category. Snacking is crucial to me; not just because I would be starving between meals if I suddenly stopped snacked now, but also because I have faced a few challenges with my metabolism, which on occasion, has pretty much shut down and left me feeling not hungry and therefore not able to take cues from my body about when and how much to eat at one time and when.
While snacking constantly is probably not such a good idea, it really all depends on what you snack on and how often between your bigger meals. I recently had the opportunity to try out the new Ritz Crackerfuls Multigrain Sharp Cheddar snacks. They are a great pick me up between meals so you can keep your energy up without feeling sluggish, tired, or just too hungry to function at your best throughout the day.
In every box of Ritz Crackerfuls are six individually wrapped crackers. I have a slight problem with snacks that are individually wrapped, just because I think it’s wasteful where it necessarily doesn’t have to be. However, I understand why they are. These crackers are snacks and you’re not always eating snacks at home. With them being individually wrapped, you can easily take one or two out in the morning and bring them to work with you or leave a few in the car to snack on while you’re running errands.
I have not tried the regular Ritz Crackerfuls flavors, but I did enjoy the multigrain. They are a great texture (I am all about texture when it comes to the any foods I eat), and the nuttiness of the grains taste great and make the crackers just that much more filling. The cheddar cheese in these crackers taste exactly the same as the cheddar cheese in every single other type of Ritz Crackers products, which is fine by me since I love the stuff. Overall, my Ritz Crackerfuls Multigrain experience was a pretty great one.
Ritz Crackerfuls Multigrain are made with 6 grams of whole grains, real cheese, and include 5 grams of fiber. This may lead you to believe that this is a healthy snack. It’s a simple conclusion to come to, but I would just like to point out that they may not be as healthy as you are initially led to believe. Upon further dietary research, or, you know, looking at the side of the box, you will find that they are 130 calories per serving (1 cracker) and also contain 210 mg of sodium. While they surely are not as super healthy as you may think at first, they do in fact the pants off of a lot of other popular snacking choices out there in terms of nutrition.
If sharp cheddar cheese isn’t your thing, Ritz Crackerfuls Multigrain are also available in garden vegetable (which I would really love to try next) and garlic herb. Lucky for you, you can get a coupon for $0.75 off any Ritz Crackerfuls variety just by liking Ritz on Facebook and downloading the coupon.
I received one package of Ritz Crackerfuls Multigrain Sharp Cheddar for review through One2One Network. No other compensation was received, and opinions are my own.
