WHAT: Cracker Barrel Cheese
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.
