WHAT: Cracker Bar­rel Cheese

Dip

STATS: One pack­age of the Jalapeno Jack Cheese Dip & Crack­ers con­tains 230 calo­ries and 12 fat, 23 car­bo­hy­drate, 4 fiber, 1 sugar and 7 pro­tein grams. We found the snacks at Kroger, 8415 W. Markham

St., Lit­tle Rock. More in­for­ma­tion at cracker­bar­relcheese.com.

THE SKINNY: Maybe the Su­per Bowl is over but the cheese dip crav­ings aren’t.

Con­sider try­ing these Cracker Bar­rel’s snack packs. Each one fea­tures a creamy fla­vored cheese dip (cold, alas), as well as salty dip­pers.

There are four va­ri­eties to­tal, two cracker packs (with tiny Triscuit-es­que “wo­ven whole wheat” crack­ers) and two pret­zels packs (with flat mini pret­zel chips):

■ Jalapeno Jack Cheese Dip & Crack­ers

■ Gar­lic and Herb Jack Cheese Dip & Crack­ers

■ Sharp Ched­dar Cheese Dip & Pret­zels

■ Cracked Black Pep­per Parme­san Cheese Dip & Pret­zels

For small snack pack­ages, they’re rather high in sat­u­rated fat (6 grams; 30 per­cent of one’s daily value) and sodium (470 mil­ligrams; 20 per­cent of one’s daily value). But we could prob­a­bly do worse when hunger has us over a bar­rel.
