Crunchy cravings

When I snack, I reach for something crunchy. In fact, I even go so far as to put chocolate bars in the fridge so they’ll be crisp, even though I’ve heard you’re not supposed to refrigerate chocolate.

But common sense (and waistline watching) says that we crunch-cravers should balance these special-occasion goodies with healthier crispy picks, such as these great-for-you treats.
