If you binged or still are binging on Christmas goodies, like I am, then this healthy freebie review is for you! I figure between now and Valentine’s I will eat nothing but good stuff because once the chocolate candy hits the store shelves…look out! So today I am reviewing Orville Redenbacher’s 100 Calorie Smart Cakes that were on HIF on October 16th.
The cakes were a Walmart freebie, the best kind of course! I got mine on October 30th, so they came pretty fast. Two kinds were offered: Cheese and Caramel. If you’re a smart freebie getter, you just put in two different emails or used your middle name as your first like I did. I received both samples!!
First up is the cheese. They are way better then regular rice cakes, sort of a white cheese flavor. What I like about the rice cakes is they are not greasy like some other snacks. They also are not salty, which is something I like a lot. The cheese flavor reminds me they have sort of a white cheese –it, very mellow and flavorful.
The caramel is next. I’m not a big fan of caramel, but these are pretty good. What can I say; it’s like eating caramel popcorn. I like these because they are sweet but not in the over sweet eww kind of way. Also you don’t have the stickiness associated with caramel. I like this kind better then the cheese but that is just me.
There are about 13 or so little cakes in each pack, not bad. They are the size of a potato chip and make a great snack. I actually crushed some up and put it on cottage cheese and it was yummy!!
The freebie sample isn’t up anymore, but you can go to any store and pick these up. Wal-Mart has a 12 pack box for 2.99. I found a coupon in the Sunday paper a few weeks ago for a dollar off, so still 1.99 is not a bad deal. These also come in Butter flavor and Sour Cream and Onion.
I recommend these!! Keep checking with HIF to see when these are up again!
