Things I Love Thursday: Quaker Quakes
I first "purchased" a bag of Quaker Quakes rice snacks because I could get them free after coupon. I had a $1 off coupon, and Kroger put them on sale 10/$10 (which we all know by now is just $1 each).
I wanted something to keep in my desk drawer at work to snack on, that wasn't high calorie. At only 60 calories per serving - they fit the bill.
You know what surprised me? I enjoyed eating them. Not just tolerated it, like most diet foods, but actually looked forward to my afternoon snack.
So far I've tried the Apple Cinnamon, Cinnamon Sugar, and Cheddar Cheese flavors. I've started eating the cinnamon sugar ones for breakfast with my coffee on days I know I'm splurging at lunch.
The cheddar cheese variety is perfect for that afternoon snack. I was craving cheddar popcorn over the holidays, but I wasn't able to get my hands on any. This completely took care of that craving.
In the interest of keeping it real, I have never been contacted by Quaker regarding their product. I have, however, paid very little in actually getting their product.
Several $1 and $0.50 coupons(my Kroger doubles coupons $0.50 and under) have made my investment minimal. But even paying the full (sale) price of $1 a bag - its totally worth it.
