I really like crunchy and slightly salty snacks. I am trying to use better portion control when eating them though and selecting the best bang for my indulgence. Pillsbury sent me some of their new Baguette Chips to try out and I was happy to again to endure the suffering of sampling these food items just for my lovely readers <grin>.
A serving of these is about 21 baguette chips which is a decent amount. That contains 50% less fat than regular potato chips. For me they taste better than a potato chip also. These are crispy as I would expect for a baguette chip, but not too hard like some snacks are. It is a nice thickness, texture, and crunch. They are firm enough that you could spread a bit of a thick dip on them without them breaking – always a plus. There are two flavors available, Italian Cheese & Herb and Cheddar Sun-Dried Tomato. Both really are delicious although the cheese variety is a bit tastier to me – I love cheese. I like that these do not taste overly salt either. Many chips are too salty for me. These have lots of flavor without just tasting salty. Now it is a chip so it does have sodium (300mg per serving), but I’m talking just flavor here. Great to just eat on their own, but I also liked them crumbled lightly into soup and onto a salad. These are perfectly fine to set out for guests. I think they might also be good crushed up finer and used as a breading on chicken breasts or boneless pork chops – yum!
