"I'm thrilled to be partnering with WHEAT THINS, a brand I have enjoyed my entire life, to help launch its newest snack, WHEAT THINS Popped.   I'm not a fan of what's considered 'diet food;' I prefer to eat sensibly.  When I started focusing on living better, I realized that you should never give up the things you love - it's about balance and making smart decisions. So WHEAT THINS Popped fits nicely into my life, fitness routine and Chanel purse (in a little plastic bag, of course)," said Kelly Osbourne.
