Review: Quaker - True Delights Wild Blueberry Multigrain Fiber Crisps

Billed as a wholesome snack, Quaker's True Delights Wild Blueberry Multigrain Fiber Crisps feature blueberry flavor in a thin, round multigrain crisp. They don't actually contain blueberries though.

A 3.5-ounce bag should run you about $1.99 at retail or a buck on sale.

When I think of Quaker, I tend to think of oatmeal, granola, and rice cakes and the Wild Blueberry Fiber Crisps are a little bit of all-of-the-above. They're made with a blend of oats, wheat, corn, and rice. Health benefits touted include: "good source of fiber," "17g whole grain," and "baked."

They have a substantial, satisfying crunch and with all the different grains, remind me a fair bit of breakfast cereal. They do have a little bit of that puffed rice cake texture but it's more like puffed rice cake plus. The blueberry flavor is pretty light but noticeable.
The sweetness is well balanced but I will warn you, comes from a blend of sugar and artificial sweeteners like sucralose (Splenda). I prefer just plain old sugar thanks.

Overall, Quaker True Delights Wild Berry Multigrain Fiber Crisp are fairly tasty but I'm a bit turned off by the aftertaste of artificial sweeteners.
