Barbara's baked cheese puffs are great for those times when you want an airy and light puffed snack with a cheesy flavor, without the grease or oil that is accompanied by other, non baked puffs. But be forewarned – it is hard to put these down so don’t buy them in a larger bag – get the small, single serve variety!
The puffs are made from natural, organic ingredients, they are free from cholesterol and wheat. They are also vegetarian and pretty guilt free – available in four flavors including original, white cheddar, jalapeno and baked. At 150 calories per serving (4 weight watchers points plus points), they are not a snack I would turn to everyday, but they are a better alternative to some of the other “junk” on the market, especially when you want to indulge a little without throwing your whole diet off the rails.
You can buy Barbara's baked cheese puffs and stores like Whole Foods, as well as online at Amazon.
