Are you a fan of pizza? And a fan of crunchy snacks? Well, you just might like these! Medora Snacks makes Pucci Pizza Snacks, which according to the package, are “baked with real cheese” and “extra virgin olive oil”. As well as having “no trans fat” and are “all  natural”. Sounds like a yummy snack to me!

Here’s a picture of the snacks. I even attempted to make a mini pizza with them! (Which I hadn’t noticed until after I made mine that the back of my bag made a mini pizza too!)

Then I tried a few. They were very crunchy and crispy, with a yummy cheesy flavor. They were a bit salty, and also had a slight tomato sauce flavor. I certainly detected the basil and  other spices as well.  They were kind of like a very crunchy rice cake, but with less of an airy texture, or like a soy crisp but slightly more dense. Unique, indeed!

Overall a good snack, but not overpowering or too salty/too flavorful. And, two servings per bag, with a good amount of pieces in the bag! They are low in fat (3.5 grams per 1 ounce serving), but 1.5 grams of that is saturated, and there is only .5 grams of fiber per serving. So, all in all, 3 stars.

1 ounce (28 grams) is 120 calores, 3.5 grams of fat, 17 grams of carbohydrates, .5 grams of fiber, 2 grams of sugar and 4 grams of protein.

GIVEAWAY ends TOMOROW!!

I was provided these snacks to try for free from Medora Snacks.

Medora Snacks Sotos

Author: Healthnuttxo

I’m always on the lookout for healthier yet crunchy & satisfying snacks, for when the munchies occur, or as a nice addition to my lunch or whatnot. Medora Snacks has some healthier and delicious snack options that are made with better-for-you ingredients than some other snacks that are out there.

So, what are Sotos? Well, according to the website, “Sotos® Multi-Grain snacks pack highly nutritious multi-grains in each little square for a better-for-you snack you will love. Our unique baking process captures the flavor of the all-natural seasonings to give you a satisfying crunchy experience that you’ll want to try again.” They come in 3 flavors- Cinnamon Streusel, Zesty Cheese Olive Oil & Lemon, and Sea Salt.

Medora Snacks sent me some yummy Sotos to try, and I was quite happy. Crunchy? Healthy? Count me in!

I decided to review about the Cinnamon Struesel and Zesty Cheese Olive Oil & Lemon flavors, as they seemed the most exciting. Each “Soto” is the shape of a square, about the size of a Cheez-it , and crispy and crunchy. In each 1.5 oz bag, there actually are quite a large amount of these yummy Sotos, which is good in my book! 🙂

Zesty Cheese Olive Oil & Lemon- Very light and crispy, but definitely flavorful. The cheese has a delicious salty parmesean flavor, that’s finger-lickin’ good. It also had a bit of a white cheddar cheese flavor as well. There was a prominant parsley flavor that I noticed with the Sotos as well, that added to the unique yet good taste. Overall, it was a bit too salty, but very yummy.

Cinnamon Streusel- yum!! Coated with cinnamon and sugar, this are also crispy, crunchy and delicious. They are sweet without being overly sweet, and yet only provide 5 grams of sugar per serving. They kind of taste like a cross between a cinnamon sugar flavored potato chip and rice cake- also unique, but yummy!

Overall, these get 4 stars. I like how the portion size is quite large, and how they are made with whole grains. They are tasty and quite different than the traditional chip or snack food, and worth trying. However, even though the portion is large, the thing with “airy” and “crispy” snacks, is that they often lack in the satiety department. Eating these alone, in my opinion, will probably leave you hungry shortly after eating them. However, pair them with a protein filled sandwich and some fruit/veggies, and you have yourself one tasty meal!

1 ounce is 120 calories, 3-4 grams of fat, 19-20 carbohydrates, 2-3 grams of fiber, 2-5 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of protein.

Medora Snacks Pogos

Author: healthnuttxo


Medora snacks are 100 % natural, and were created by a mom who wanted to give her family healthy and nutritious snacks. The word Medora actually means A Mother’s Gift. They have a “unique baking process” that allows them to make wholesome and tasty snacks that are actually GOOD for you. Pogos are one of the snacks they manufacture, and are a blend of real cheese and potatoes, as well as other spices, and come in White Cheddar, Hickory Smoked and Jalapeno Cheddar.

But….What’s a Pogo? Immediately upon hearing “Pogo”, I thought of my childhood Pogo stick. Bouncing aimlessly for hours trying to get consecutive times and such- a truly fun activity. I guess you could compare a Pogo stick to Medora’s snack “Pogos”. These  potato cheese sticks even sort of resemeble a “bounce”! They are wavy in shape and resemble crinkle cut fries-Guess i wasn’t too far off with my “pogo stick” vision! They are harder and smoother than your typical crunchy cheese doodle, and also more airy.

White Cheddar-yummmm. Even opening and taking a whiff of these made my mouth water. The smell of Cheeeeseee 🙂 These reminded me of a blend of white cheddar popcorn and those skinny potatoe stick snacks I used to have when I was younger. Really good, sharp white cheddar cheese flavor. Not too salty either- just right. These were so good, I ate both servings in one sitting 😀

Hickory Smoked– wow these are good too. They also have a white cheddar flavor, with a hint of paprika. The flaovr is more robust, and certainly delicious. They actually have a real “Hickory Smoke” flavor- I even felt like I tasted a bit of a “bacon” flavor! You can bet I gobbled these down too!

*Added

Jalepano Cheddar-these were good, but not my favorite. I’m not too fond of spicy/hot things, and these certainly had a spicy tang to them. I did like the savory salty cheesy flavor, mostly a white cheddar flavor, but there certainly was some HEAT from the Jalapeno! I think these are good if you like spicy or the flavor of jalapenos!

Overall, these get 4 stars. They taste amazing and are very addicting. A perfect and healthier swap for potato chips, and are perfect for when you have the munchies :). I like also how I can have a cheesy snack without all the annoying residue left on my fingers (and inevitably, all over the table, my clothes, etc. 😀 ) They would get 5 stars if they had a weee bit more fiber-they have less than 1 gram per serving , and they are also a little high in sodium (10% for 1 serving). Other than that- you need to try these. Delicious!!

1 serving (1 ounce) is 110 calories, 4 grams of fat, 16-18 carbohydrates, less than 1 gram of fiber, and 2 grams of protein.
