Well hula hoops are not available here in the United States. But I've found a good substitute for them at Trader Joe's, and a healthier substitute to boot. Crunchy Curls don't have quite the same flavor, but have a very similar texture and 'crunch', reminding me of my childhood snack.
The package states that Crunchy Curls are 'a tasty lentil and potato snack,' they only contain five ingredients, lentil flour and potato starch being the first two, and they are also vegan and gluten free. For WeightWatchers, a serving is 3 points.
Lentils are a good source of protein and fiber, and these contain 3g and 4g respectively per serving. A serving by the way is 31 curls (on average 1.5"), which is a lot of crunching!
Other nutritional information per serving: calories 130, total fat 4.5g (saturated fat 0.5g), carbohydrates 18g. There are approximately 6 servings per package and they cost $2.69. Find them with the other chips and popcorn, etc., at Trader Joe's and enjoy!
