It's not easy to find diabetes-friendly snack options -- especially foods that are notoriously unhealthful, such as greasy chips and salty pretzels. But we knew there had to be some delicious products out there. So we went on a mission to track down all the options that met our nutrition guidelines. Then we sent those products through a series of taste tests.
Some were too crunchy; others weren't crunchy enough. But after being tasted by more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, the best-tasting chips and pretzels rose to the top. The winner in each category received the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ award. Pop open a bag and taste how yummy healthful snacks can be!
