While digging through the kitchen cupboards in search of a snack to review for today, I found an old (forgot-about-it old not grossly-past-the-expiration-date old) box of Special K 100 Calorie Strawberry Pastry Crisps. A low calorie sweet snack that continues the berry trend of the week? Sounds perfect!
I’m a salt loving girl, what can I say. Most days when the clock strikes 3 and I’m on my last leg at work, all I can think about is ripping through a bag of chips. Recently when one of my cravings came over me, I ran over to CVS expecting to buy fattening chips (not my finest hour, but when a girl is desperate…) but to my delight I came across Special K Sour Cream & Onion Chips. For 27 chips it’s only 110 calories and 2.5g of fat! This cannot be a more perfect snack for the busy SkinnyOffice girl.
You can buy these chips (which also come in sea salt flavor) pretty much anywhere and they are actually really tasty. I know that you may be thinking, yeah they probably taste like cardboard, but I swear it’s like dipping your favorite chips into real sour cream and onion dip! I now make sure to keep a box on hand at my desk when the salt monster rears its head, so that I don’t gain all the calories I desperately worked off in spin class that morning. If only these were available while I was in college, I would have definitely saved myself some time at the gym as well as some weight!
