Myrna’s skinny crisps come in a variety of flavors but which do I go for?

Chocolate obviously!

I was drawn to these crackers because I seem to have a very keen eye at the Co-op for new products and the packaging was pretty cute. And I always notice packaging – can’t help it, it is part of my job!  I probably shouldn’t admit this but that is how I pick out some things…like wine…but I swear I only do that once in a while ;)  The story on the back of the package is also pretty cute but the reason these made it into my basket? The ingredients.

Ingredients: almonds, chickpea flour, golden flax seeds, psylium husk, cocoa powder, sea salt and turbinado. Interesting, right? Doesn’t sound to much like brownies to me…but I’m always one to try!

3 crackers: 80 calories, 4.5 g fat, 2 g fiber, 2 g protein.

I of course sampled one the minute I got in the car and loved. These aren’t too sweet but they still have a great chocolate flavor are nice and crunchy.  They remind me of something but I just can’t put my finger on it…guess I’ll have to keep trying to figure it out!  They would also be beyond delicious made into an ice-cream sandwich with some coconut ice cream….. What! Did I just say that?!?!

Yes, it’s true. This doesn’t come as a surprise – chocolate covered bacon was the new “it” food of the Minnesota State Fair last year but I had NEVER seen it in stores. Until now. Now I’m willing to try anything once. (almost anything) This chocolate bar really is a culinary experience and the salty
