Cubed, nutrition-packed veggie snacks might sound like a science experiment, but these bite-size morsels are a healthy and savory treat. They’re dense, like mini granola bars, but
provide a full cup of veggies in every bag. And in a world where most trail snacks are on the sweet side, the savory flavors stand out. “The sweet potato/mango/cinnamon/nutmeg combo was my favorite and tastes like a Thanksgiving dish, while the diced almond bits and rice puffs add a satisfying crunch,” one tester raves. Truth: These bites fall squarely in the “love ’em or hate ’em” category.


With 6 grams of fat and 180 calories per bag (six cubes), this isn’t a supersnack, but the bites’ density beat back our hunger. On the other hand, the fiber (5 grams), sodium (120 milligrams), and carb content (26 grams) gets a thumbs up.
