REVIEW: General Mills new Fruit Ripples (Apple Chips)

I was curious if anyone else has tried the new General Mills Fruit Ripples. Sarah and I scored a free bag when we got Caleb's pictures taken at Target. Essentially, they are a dried apple, but to me, much more "Crispy" than any other dried apple I have tried..

My first thought was that based on the packaging and good taste that the nutrition was right out the window. That doesn't seem to be entirely the case. They claim it is one whole serving of fruit. One bag has 50 calories, and 0 calories from fat.. Also has 0g of fat. The sugars were 10g, but not sure how much of that is from the apple itself, as it doesn't have sugar (or a like substance) in the ingredients.

Anyways, I find these to be very crispy and even more tasty than I had planned. Anyone else have any experience with these?

Note: So far, the only place I have located them were at Target. And instead of being by the other dried fruits (Dried Cranberries, etc), they were actually located by the fruit snacks and granola bars..
