Cheddar Jack Cheez-Its [SnackAttack]

Here we go with this week's SnackAttack - sorry it's a little late but we got busy cleaning the house and I forgot to do it.

Cheez-Its Crackers - Cheddar Jack flavor
Serving Size: 35 g
Calories: 180

Cheez-Its have become a really fun snack for us of late. Another great go-to when you've got a salty craving going on. My personal favorite flavor is the new Cheddar Jack - regular flavor doesn't quick have enough kick to it, though we do eat it. This one makes a nice balance to the sweet that I've been getting with my Malt-o-Meal cereal that I mentioned last week.

The only weakness in this snack is the calorie count. They aren't tremendously filling - 35 grams doesn't seem like a whole lot compared to something like the Cheerios mix. And for that small amount of crackers, you sure get a lot of calories. But, if you've got the remainder of the calories to spend, these are a fun snack to eat.

Happy Tuesday and Happy Healthy

PS - The Menu Shout-out for this week will also be delayed a day so tune in again tomorrow for the weekly shout-out.
