I recently started a new job and sadly, the new establishment does not have the smorgasbord of snacking options that the other was so kind to maintain. Luckily though, in this snacking void I have found one treat on hand that is perfect for the days when you need some serious crunch with a bit of spice.
Snyder’s Honey Wheat Sticks Pretzels are salty and slightly sweet with the crunch of a serious pretzel.

The calorie count here for one serving seems about average, and since it’s a filling serving, no real damage done. It’s also great to find a snack with some sweetness without breaking the sugar bank. As for fiber, I’m certainly glad it showed up for the party, but since the recommended daily allowances for fiber are around 25 grams, the two grams here are no big revelation, though they are appreciated. The 3 grams of protein are also nice to have in a snack, so overall, I think it’s a pretty safe bet. I wouldn’t rely on them for my nutritional needs, but they have contributed, while doing little harm as a snack.
How I like ‘em
Brown mustard is just the kick that these subtly sweet sticks need. It’s just a bonus that this dipping condiment is low in calories (1 tablespoon contains about 15 calories) and has no fat and no sugar! The natural grazer within is calmed as these delicious sticks can carry me from one meal to the next.
