There, you have been warned.

I picked these up at Walmart a couple of weeks ago. I had never seen them. Those crafty old marketing guys! They put them on the endcap, so naturally, I caved!

You find them over on the chip/snack isle. They were $2.88-not too pricey.

They are just so yummy and crunchy! I’m a sucker for cinnamon, and I do like to crunch! They aren’t real heavy on the apple flavoring.

Here is the nutritional information, in case you are in to that sort of thing.

I know, you are saying, “Seven grams of fat per serving! A hundred-thirty calories per serving!” That may or may not sound bad to you. I guess it depends on which diet you are following at the time. Hey, I never said this was a health food! Maybe it is maybe it isn’t. Whatever you have to tell yourself. But did you SEE the serving size?? Thirty-eight straws!!! (I realize those numbers may have been more impressive if they were not in word form. There is an English teacher in the back of my head saying, “You cannot start a sentence with a numeral!” So, here are the numerals…7, 130, 38.)

I am a visual person. I know you want to see what 38 (ha) straws looks like, too, don’t you?

WOW! Right?! A whole cereal bowl full!

This is what 28 straws looks like.

Sorry, I couldn’t help it. Can you tell I like them? Like them, ha! I could have eaten the whole bag!

The straws come in other flavors too. I haven’t tried them yet though.

You can check out the Sensible Portions website to see the other things they make.

Critics’ Corner

Usually when I post from my critics I have them write out their comments for me. Well, they are at school and work at the moment, and I wanted to go ahead a post. So, here are their feelings about the Apple Straws:

Chip: Liked them very much.

Megan: They are just ok.

Katie: Would trade a kidney for them.
