Food Review: World of Grains Blueberry and Cranberry Snacks

When I first came across this World of Grains product, I wasn't quite sure what it was. The package merely described them as "snacks." But were they crackers? Cookies? Fruit? Turns out, these snacks are really a combination of all three.

As you know, I value my snacks, and these healthy, whole-grain treats are a great way to ward off snack attacks. They look like cookies but they don't taste as sweet — more like a graham cracker than a mouthful of sugar. I tried the cranberry and blueberry biscuits, which are made from a blend of eight whole grains —including oat bran, amaranth flour, and quinoa — mixed with bits of real fruit. To hear what I thought of them,

.

I like that these cookies satisfy my sweet tooth but don't taste overly sugary. The blueberry flavor is sweeter, sort of like a blueberry muffin, while the cranberry is more tart, and both have a crunchy, chewy texture that's fun to munch. Better yet, unlike some other low-cal sweets, they actually fill me up when eaten as an afternoon snack. I'm guessing that's because of the 12 grams of whole grains per serving, but these are definitely heartier than, say, a 100-calorie pack of Girl Scout cookies.

Each box comes with four individual cookie packet, each with fewer than 150 calories and 4 grams of fat. They are also available in oatmeal raisin, apple cinnamon, and multigrain flavors. You can buy them at Whole Foods, and you can find a store near you on the World of Grains website.
