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. Chips, crackers—if it makes a lot of noise when you eat it, I love it far more than anything soft like ice cream. Even the word snack has a gloriously brittle ring to it.
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.
