These “crunchy corn sticks” are remarkably like Cheetos, minus the bright orange powder (and less cheesy).  I spotted the regular bags on sale at Wild Oats for $.99 and thought it was a good opportunity to give them a first trial.  I wasn’t disappointed.  They were tasty, crispy, and they handled my husband’s mid-day munchies nicely. 

The Tings we trialed were baked, not fried, for a healthy twist on their bright orange Frito-Lay competitor.  They contain only corn meal, rice and/or sunflower oil, nutritional yeast, and salt. No trans fats or sugars are added.  The nutritional yeast gives Tings a mild cheesy taste that I expect would be pleasing to most.  

  • Pros:  Vegan; Gluten-Free; All natural ingredients; Dairy-free “cheese” snack; Trans fat-free; Cholesterol and sugar free
  • Cons: Best for moderate snacking.  Though one serving has a fairly respectable 7g of fat and 150 calories, eating an entire bag (which wouldn’t be hard to do) may tip the scales in fat, calories, and sodium.

Recommended For:

  • Cheetos Cravings
  • GFCF Dieters
  • Afternoon Munchies
  • Vegan and All-Natural Foodies

Where to Buy:

  • Online – You may buy them directly from Robscape, but they are much cheaper (and eligible for free shipping) on Amazon
  • In Store – Robert’s American Gourmet snacks are well distributed in natural food stores and mainstream grocers throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Asia.
