These Fat Free Sour Cream & Onion Pringles have been a staple on my grocery list for years.Sour cream and onion is one of my favorite potato chips flavors.I admit, I don’t purchase them often because even though I love potato chips buying a whole bag of regular full fat sour cream and onion chips just isn’t really worth it for me.
When I first saw that Pringles offered a Fat Free version of their sour cream and onion chips, I was intrigued and figured out what the points plus values were. It was really low, actually half the points plus values of regular potato chips and the serving size was as plentiful as regular chips. I admit, I was really hesitant at first and assumed it would taste like cardboard.Thankfully, I was wrong.
I was really surprised with how good these Pringles are! They taste just like the original full-fat Pringles. You get 15 crisps in a serving size and they are only 2 points plus values!They are great as a snack and are perfect to pair alongside a sandwich.
The one downside is they are somewhat hard to find. My regular grocery store doesn’t carry them – but I’ve been able to find them at Target, Walmart and K-Mart.
While browsing Trader Joe’s a few weeks back I noticed these World’s Puffiest Sour Cream & Onion Corn Puffs in their snack section.I picked them up because I absolutely LOVE sour cream and onion chips. So I figured corn puffs? Why not!Surprisingly (or rather not surprisingly since TJ’s sells pretty stand-up products) they were pretty good.They reminded me of a cheese curl just minus the cheese.
Flavor wise they are a very mild sour cream and onion flavoring.The texture of the corn puff is that of a cheese puff – puffy, provides a crunch, but are very soft when chewing.The downside for me was they were completely addicting.A serving size was 2 ½ cups, but I found I wanted to eat more than just 2 ½ cups when enjoying these. Totally a “trigger food”.I know Trader Joe’s also sells a cheddar version of the same puffs, which I’m sure are equally delicious.
Weight Watchers Points Plus wise – these were 4 points plus for a serving.
