We Americans take our snacking seriously, with snacks sometimes even substituting for meals. That means chips, pretzels, fruit or veggie sticks won’t always cut it. Some experts even tout the benefits of healthy snacking.
Hillshire Snacking offers new Grilled Chicken Bites and Small Plates in a variety of choices. Their Grilled Chicken Bites feature all natural, minimally processed white chicken breast pieces.
They’re available in combination with several different dipping sauce choices. My kids preferred the honey mustard and teriyaki dipping sauces. I found them all delightfully tasty, including the ones with slightly more kick to them – spicy chipotle, sweet chili and mango habanero.
Parents may want to substitute Hillshire Snacking Chicken Bites for fast food or frozen chicken nuggets. Each gluten-free 3-ounce box of Hillshire Snacking Chicken Bites, with the dipping sauce, provides around 120 calories, 3 grams or less of fat, plus 15 grams or more of protein.
For comparison, a Wendy’s six-piece chicken nuggets package packs 240 calories and 19 grams of fat, not including the sauce.
Hillshire Snacking Small Plates (2.76 ounces each) feature four different combos of mouthwatering salame paired with genuine cheese and tasty toasted, lightly salted rounds. “Salame” is the Italian spelling of salami, and Hillshire Snacking Small Plates don’t contain plain old salami. They boast thickly sliced, perfectly sized salame rounds, each with its own unique flavor.
The rounds are exceptionally delicious, too, and just the right size to hold the cheese and salame slices. Of the four Small Plates options, kids may find the Hot Calabrese Salame (with gouda cheese) a bit too spicy. I loved all four flavors, including the ones with a bit less bite to them – Italian Dry Salame (with gouda cheese), Genoa Salame (with white cheddar cheese) and Wine Infused Salame (with white cheddar cheese).
Hillshire Snacking products are so yummy that you won’t want to limit them to snack time. Two of them, or one with a yogurt, can make a quick and scrumptious lunch.
You can find Hillshire Snacking products at many popular grocery chains plus Target stores. I received sample products for use in this honest review. All opinions are my own.
