I purchased a bag of Trader Joe’s Baked Jalapeno Cheese Crunchies because I am a lover of cheese curls/doodles and I tried the original baked cheese crunchies and was a fan. I was intrigued by the jalapeno flavoring, although a little weary because with spicy chips/snacks you never quite know how spicy they are going to be.
Even though these have 33% less fat in them than regular cheese crunchies, you really can’t tell with the jalapeno flavoring.The less fat “flavoring” is far more noticeable in the original flavored crunchies. These do pack a punch in the jalapeno department. They are spicy and can be a little much if you eat too many. I can’t say I was a huge fan of these, but they were good. I think I much rather the original flavor because sometimes spice just hits me wrong.
The great thing about these is that a serving is 33 crunchies and a serving is 4 points plus values. Not bad because I feel like with these I’m getting a lot more bang for my point buck in comparison to other cheese curls/doodles on the market.
Have you tried either of the Trader Joe’s Baked Cheese Crunchies?
I spotted this Weight Watchers Jalapeno String Cheese at Walmart many, many times and finally decided to give it a whirl. My local grocery store only carries the classic light and the smoked so I usually don’t purchase any string cheese. This string cheese has the classis light part-skim mozzarella cheese stick flavor but the jalapeno does bring it a nice, I feel a mild zip to it. I personally don’t really care for light string cheese because I find the flavor of it to be overwhelming and unpalatable but this particular flavor variety I do enjoy.
Hot Pepper Jack cheese is one of my favorites to have with crackers and pepperoni – but since 1 ounce is not justifiable for the points I don’t purchase it any longer. But with this jalapeno cheese I can tear off some strips, have it with some turkey pepperoni and a few Ritz crackers and I’d be good to go.
As mentioned I can only find this particular string cheese at super Walmart locations.
