Who’s the dummy who put my Special K Fruit Crisps in the freezer! It’s NOT ice cream, people. It took me three days to track down the package in it’s icy cave.
As much as I enjoy Newton Fruit Crisps, I don’t buy them anymore. But even if I did, I’d trade them in for Special K’s version. They’re thin and light, like a pop tart that went on Weight Watchers, liposuction, and a colon cleanse all in the same day. But it’s definitely not a pop tart. Totally different.
The sweet taste is perfect, not artificially offensive. The crispy exterior is laced with a swirl of icing and gives a nice, light crunch that fades into mild chewiness as your gnawing reaches the strawberry (or blueberry) center.
There is less filling than what’s pictured on the box, but no biggie. I was too caught up in fighting the urge to eat the entire box. Special K Fruit Crisps can help you pimp slap your sweet tooth and put it to sleep. All for a mere 100 calories.
