When I saw the bear logo on this bag, I thought, "Aw how cute." Looking for something to snack, this was completely new to me, not to mention, it's "Lite." The closest thing to "lite" was baked chips. I stand corrected.
Going as far as to compare to other brands being lighter in fat and calories, it tastes quite good. To folks who grew up with the puffs from Cheetos® will immediately find something different, but good, things about this. The puffs themselves are large pieces making you enjoy more of that light taste of these chips. As with other chips, these are perfect for dipping and/or as a side alternative to fries or potato chips to your main course.
For a bag of chips with a cute logo of a bear, I only wish and hope to see this company flourish in the big markets. I'm a fan.
