When I received my package, I decided to try the apple cinnamon ones. Each little package comes with 4 biscuits (cookies) in them. They are thin and crispy. I liked the taste of these because they are slightly sweet but not too sweet. They had tiny chewy pieces of apple which were a nice addition. They have no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, or sweeteners. Each package has 18-20 grams of whole grains and 3 grams of fiber.
Overall, I do think that these are pretty good but there were a couple things that I did not like. One package is 230 calories which I think is steep. I would not be filled up on 1 package so I wish that they were less calories to make an overall lower calorie breakfast. Also, they have 3 grams of protein which would definitely not keep me full. I would recommend eating these with some form of protein such as peanut butter or with a hard boiled egg to help keep you full until lunchtime.
I am impressed that they are made with whole wheat flour and taste good too. I think that these could make a good breakfast for kids on the go. I look forward to trying the other flavors and would also eat 1/2 package of these as an afternoon snack.
