LesserEvil Snacks Product Review

by on August 26, 2012 · 6 comments

Given the fact that I’ll be packing Fuzz’s lunch every day for the next 9 month (or better yet, Fuzz will be packing it!) , I happily accepted a free sample of LesserEvil snacks. You may recognize the name from their kettle corn.  It’s been available for a while, but now they are making a baked vegetable chip snack called Krinkle Sticks.  Gluten free and with 50% less fat than typical chips, these are exactly the type of thing I look for in the salty snacks aisle. So how were the samples?

LesserEvil

Based on my tastings, I’ve determined they may be a “lesser” evil, but they’re still a little evil because they are impossible to put down. My favorite flavor was definitely the Sour Cream & Onion, which tasted surprisingly less “fake”  sour cream-y than some other snacks.  Not that I mind fake sour cream& onion flavor (it’s what I grew up with), but Todd typically doesn’t not like sour cream & onion flavored chips, yet he loved these.  We also liked the shape.  Aren’t they pretty?

Lesser Evil

They’re light and puffy so a typical one ounce serving takes up more room on a plate or in a small zipper bag.  And as mentioned, these are just perfect for school lunches.  LesserEvil’s premise is that snacking is a good thing when you’re snacking on the right thing.  I buy into that, but only if you can keep portion control in check.  Because these are so very good, it’s easy to eat too many, so I recommend portioning them out ahead of time in little zipper bags.  They’ll be ready to throw into lunch boxes or grab for snacks.

I just returned from a loooong road trip. These would have been a welcome snack. The portion control is a great idea!

Does your daughter pack a lunch every day? My friend makes her daughter Bentos–these snacks would look so cute in the little ‘holders’ in Bento boxes!

Haven’t seen those before. Now I’ll have to look for them.
