EW Health Watch: Baked! Cheetos are, like, totally tasty

Cheetos_lIt occurred to me earlier this week, as I was enjoying yet another bag of Baked! Cheetos from an EW vending machine, that I apparently liked them. As the headline says: totally tasty. If you’re looking for a somewhat healthy TV snack, I’d recommend them. I also endorse Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked Low Fat Frozen Yogurt. Seriously yummy (and judging by how hard it is to find, more and more people are realizing this).
What are your favorite TV snacks? Tell me quick so that I can distract myself from thinking about this thing called "puppy chow" that I just read about on Evite’s food and drink blog: an "ooey, gooey mixture of melted chocolate and peanut butter coating Rice Chex and covered in powdered sugar." HELLO. I bet that’d go great with a s’more martini

    Tho I’m addicted to cheese popcorn, I’m guessing this is about better choices. Orville Redenbacher apple-cinnamon mini-cakes – not rice cakes, popcorn cakes. Crunchy, lightly sweet, and lo-cal. Even my kids like them. There’s even tiny snack paks, w/icing drizzled on. Yum!

    my love is popcorn. cheese popcorn is good. my homemade salsa (when the farmer’s market is in operation is stellar) I live in boston so we can only get really true fresh veggies and fruit from these farmers markets. i love a nice glass of wine (red. chianti) too. cheese is nice too.

    Oh man, puppy chow is sooo good!!! But I do have to say my favorite snack is chips and salsa. And I get the Multigrain Tostitos…they are really good.

    my favourite would have to be ben & jerry’s oatmeal cookie ice cream. orgasmic! of course, i have to deny myself of it altogether. too bad they don’t have it available as a low fat frozen yogurt option.

    Haagen-Daas Cinnamon Dulce De Leche. It’s truly wonderful.

    Häagen-Dazs Sticky Toffee Pudding ice cream is one of the best ice cream flavors I’ve ever had. I also enjoy Ben & Jerry’s Oatmeal Cookie, but that one is so hard to find where I live for some reason. I usually have to stock up when I see it in the stores because once it’s gone it’s gone for a long time. Godiva also makes a fantastic White Chocolate Raspberry ice cream that I treat myself to every once in a while. None of these are healthy eating though so I have to agree with one of the posters below…nothing beats the simple Tostitos and Salsa combo for TV viewing. And if you go with the multigrain, it’s much better for you. Same goes for multigrain Goldfish crackers! :) Oh and low fat Graham Crackers with natural peanut butter. Okay, seriously I need to stop before I make myself hungry. D’OH! Too late.

    I discovered puppy chow a few months back on the back of my Chocolate Chex cereal box and it sure is tasty. I’m such a Chex mix addict these days, especially with their Turtle and Chocolate Peanut Butter versions. And they come in such handy little snack sizes now…

    I bake chocolate chip cookies, freeze them, and then make them into chipwiches with Ben and Jerry’s AmeriCone Dream in the middle. The caramel oozes out and the cookies go from crunchy to soft and chewy all while you are eating. Delicious.

    Puppy chow is sooooo good! If you just try it, you’ll never stop. You’ve been warned.

  • Amber

    My healthier choice for a snack are the Skinny Cow low-fat ice cream sandwiches (the mint flavored ones are the best).

  • nay-lo

    I love baked cheetos. Its taken a while for them to make it too my local supermarket, but they’re here now and I love it.

    “Puppy chow” is known as “muddy buddies” in my house. And it is as good as it sounds.

    Puppy chow is a-MAY-zing.
