As a general rule (that I feel free to beak at any given point given an interesting reason enough to break it), I do not eat Special K products. Special Ks desire to develop a food in every single genre of food really just annoys me. They seem to be having an identity crisis and the world is paying for it in really weird tasting Special K chips. Part of me just wants to send them an email saying "Stick with the cereal. You were so good with that."
But I might have to add pastry crisps to the list of things they are good at. Because they were good.
They are very much like a lower-calorie Pop Tart. (I hate saying that because I really believe that if you want a Pop Tart, eat a Pop Tart. Low-calorie substitutions kind of annoy me, just eat what you want but don't eat it all the time.) (I am really easily annoyed today. Obviously.)
I have to give these a big thumbs up. You will likely be hungry two minutes after you eat these; there is not a lot to them. But they did not taste too fakey, something that Special K products often fall victim to. And the Brown Sugar Cinnamon flavor (not pictured) really does taste like a Pop Tart. I highly recommend it.
Snack of the Week is a weekly feature where I profile the best snack that I am eating. Equal parts healthy and indulgent are how I aspire (and sometimes fail) to eat my way through life and I try to reflect in these snacks. All snacking is done with a budget-friendly mindset as well.

If you have any suggestions for snacks you would like me to try and profile, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Unless it is super weird or expensive, I will probably try it.
