When I saw last week's episode of Top Chef with a Quickfire challenge that utilized Alexia Crunchy Onion Snacks, I just knew I had to try them. I have enjoyed many other Alexia products so when I saw my local grocer had the all-natural onion snacks on sale, I picked up a bag for my latest trip.
The first bite was full of crunch, with the initial sweetness of the onion balancing wonderfully with the savory spices. The after notes were more savory with a slight heat filling my mouth. Bite after bite, I couldn't put them down! In the future I will need to portion these out before enjoying, since I had hoped to try out some recipe ideas :-)
In addition to being a snackalicious treat, I think these would be great on burgers, turkey sandwiches, or the classic green bean casserole.
While all-natural, these tasty morsels are not a low-calorie snack. The serving sizes are small with 4.5 servings in one bag. Each serving is one ounce and comes in at 150 calories/8 grams of fat/1 gram of fiber/2 grams of protein. But they are delicious and packed full of flavor so a smaller serving can go a longer way than most savory snacks.
