A collection of snacks in the Philippines

Nova Multigrain snack

Jack ‘N Jill really came out with a winner with their Nova chips.  Everyone seems to really like the sweet somewhat light cheese taste of their Country Cheddar Nova.  Other Flavor variants of Nova are not very popular. I don’t know if you guys remember the blue package nova? No?  Haven’t tasted it?  Don’t Worry, you’re not missing out on anything.  Nova country cheddar is all you need.

Nova claims it is a healthy mix of four wholesome grains. Corn, Rice, Wheat and Oats.  This combination gives the chips a sweet nutty taste.

Nova is still quite unhealthy because 1 large bag contains three servings and each serving has 13% of your RDA of saturated fat.  Carbohydrates are at 7% RDA and Fiber is at 8% RDA.  Nova has NO VITAMINS whatsoever.  0% for Vitamins A, C, Calcium and Iron.

It’s still delicious and I love Nova.  It’s not too salty since Sodium is a 70mg or 3% RDA per serving and it is the type of chip that actualy makes you a little full after eating it.  I guess that’s because of the fiber content.  However if you really want to get full and eat a healthy snack, reach for a piece of FRUIT.  That’s way better than snacking on “health chips.”
