* Love the plain janes and the sesame. I'm going to try the seeded next, but the package does not reflect what Netrition.com states the carb count is. The package shows these as having MORE carbs, better read it closely. The brownies sound good, but way too many carbs for me, too much sugar too, so what's the point? This food is expensive and should be beneficial to a low carb diet. I don't consider these really low carb when the carb count is equal to grocery store snack crackers. Great taste, too bad I can only eat 2 or 3 and have to call it quits. I would recommend these to someone who doesn't follow a low carb lifestyle.

* I've now eaten 5 flavors of Skinny Crisps, two are pretty decent but three of them were not very good, and one of those was really bad.
Cinnamon - The best of the 5, had a good cinnamon flavor to it and was the closest of the 5 to similar flavored processed snacks you will find on supermarket shelves. It rates 4 stars.
Brownie- This one was also pretty good, looked like the high calorie processed snacks and had a noticeable chocolate taste, even though less pronounced than the cinnamon crisps. Also rates 4 stars.
Toasty Onion - Very little onion flavor apparent to me. Not very flavorful and I only went to the bag twice before I realized I would not be eating them again. - 3 stars.
White Sesame - Each crisp is loaded with sesame and also had very little flavor. Like the onion, these are good snacks if you want to limit your intake, as the desire to sit and eat these will not be there. A deciding reason I give both flavors 3 stars.
Say Cheese - The clear loser in this test. No hint of a cheese flavor whatsoever. Had no detectable flavor to me at all. And, of course, I ordered two bags of this flavor without trying them. I gave one away and pitched the other. - 1 star
* I have tried the say cheese, toasty onion, and cinnamon. They were all decent, but of the 3, I like cinnamon the most. Some of the cinnamon ones had an undertone of burnt pita flavor, but I like cinnamon/sweet versions of things so I didn't dwell on it. I have never been a fan of cheez-its, but if you are then you will probably like the say cheese flavor. The toasty onion is very thick and crunchy and does have a strong onion taste; like an onion bagel only 100 times harder.
Overall, I would give these a 3. They were an ok snack, nice crunch, but not to die for. There are 3g of carbs in 4 tiny crackers and that can add up if you're watching your intake. They are also on the expensive side, but I guess that can be expected when trying to find low-carb alternatives.
