LesserEvil Krinkle Sticks

I'm so glad to see that you guys like the throw down post! Unfortunately, this one's going to be regular just because I can't find a similar snack to Krinkle Sticks! All I know is, they're delicious. The LesserEvil company is all about healthy snacks that are lower in fat and calories, and are all natural. The Krinkle Sticks in particular are supposed to be a twist on potato chips, but are baked in sunflower oil, not fried. This makes them contain 75% less fat than regular chips! The sticks are also free of trans-fat and saturated fat, cholesterol, artificial flavors and colors, and preservatives. If you can't eat gluten, don't worry, the sticks are gluten free as well.

The Krinkle Sticks come in four flavors: Classic Sea Salt, Veggie, Sour Cream & Onion, and Old School Bar-B-Que. I only had a chance to try the Classic Sea Salt, but I have to imagine that their other flavors are just as good! The stick was crunchy and crisp on the outside without being greasy, and the flavor was mildly like a potato puff. It was excellent, and I'm looking forward to trying the other flavors! Not to mention the twisty shape is so much fun to eat. It's kind of like an escalator, or a flight of stairs.

Okay, time to look at the back of the bag. The nutritional info for the Krinkle Sticks is definitely good! Only 110 calories per cup, which is around 40 generous sticks. There is only 2.5g of fat. That's even lower than Popchips! They even have 2g of dietary fiber per serving to keep you nice and full, and also 2g of protein.

Overall, these sticks are really yummy. If you're craving chips though, these aren't really an alternative seeing as how they're kind of like a cross between a veggie stick and a chip instead. Still, I prefer these to chips anyway, so... Go get these today! :)

The company "Lesser Evil" focus on healthier savory snacks. One of Lesser Evil's healthier offerings are these potato based Krinkle Sticks.

Price: $2.99 per bag
Calories: 110 per 40 sticks

Yes! I am really looking forward to these giveaways, especially the bag one. I have to thank Stephanie over at The Skinny Plate for letting me know about that one. :D

  5. I have had these before...we bought a big bag from Costco! It wasn't very popular in my household though... I wish Costco had other flavors than plain sea salt!

  9. arrgh! I don't think my last comment worked but in case it did just ignore that you are reading this twice.
    First of all I love your blog! I am trying to eat healthier and as a mom i am always looking for good-tasting, healthy snacks for my girls. I live in a smaller town so it is a challenge to find good, organic foods. We don't have a Whole foods or anythng like that, but there is a small food co-op (expensive) and the good old organic section at the grocery store. I do my best with these.
    I'm looking forward to more reviews :)
