Tiny poptarts? Maybe. Crispy, a little bit gooey and sweet, I’d generally have to give my seal of approval to the new Special K Chocolatey Delight Pastry Crisps. You can also get them in

Special K Pastry Crisps

I’m a chocolate fan, so it was a perfect match for me. The box contains 5 pouches with two bars each. A pair is only 100 calories, which makes this snack a much better option than some. I wouldn’t even have both of them at once. Sometimes, I’d just snack on one.

As the name suggests, they’re crispy will drizzled frosting or chocolate on top. The chocolate in the center was soft and thin but spread evenly. I got a little in each bite, which is definitely good enough for me. I can recall a time or two when I would bite into a poptart and there would be no filling. How does that even happen?! The drizzle also adds a little bit of flavor. It’s not an artificial chocolate taste, which I like. I’ve also read that some of the other bars are too sweet, so I’d keep that in mind if you’re debating between flavors.

Beware the crumbs, guys. Just warning ya. These aren’t the type of bars you’ll want floating around your lunch pail or purse for long.

However, 5 servings per box is a little on the low side, especially given the price. A comparable box of other bars would have more product for a lower price. Granted, buying these from Wal-mart won’t cost the $8 you’d have to pay on Amazon, but if you’re set on getting the most bang for your buck, you might find these bars to fizzle. I don’t always snack on bars like this, though, and they certainly weren’t bad. I guess I’m looking for a god sale!
