I bought Nairn's Organic Rough Oatmeal Oatcakes one day by accident - I was in a hurry and I was going for the herb and pumpkin seed ones, but mistakenly picked up these ones. However, I am a big fan of many flavours of Nairn's oatcakes so I was happy to give them a try. They were bland. I am normally a massive fan of oats, I have porridge for breakfast every single morning, but all I can say about these is that they were bland and coarse. They were flavourless. They weren't enjoyable to eat - I couldn't finish them because they were so boring, and I was hungry. The texture was much rougher than the texture of their other oatcakes (although it was more similar ... Read the complete review

I first started eating oatcakes instead of bread a couple of years ago in an attempt to cut down the amount of wheat I was consuming. I find when I eat much wheat I tend to put on weight which I would prefer not to do if I can help it. At the same time I know that adding more oats to my diet can't be a bad thing as they are so good for you and help lower cholesterol. All of these came together so that I decided that I would eat my cheese, hummous, and other relevent tasty treats with oatcakes. Nairn's Organic Oatcakes are made from 89% oats and don't contain any wheat whatsoever, unlike some other brands of oatcakes that are mixed with wheat. They do ... Read the complete review

Sometimes I get really sick of bread and try to branch out. This is where oatcakes come in. Nairn's organic oatcakes (rough oatmeal) are a staple in my bread-alternative cupboard. These oatcakes have been certified as organic, have no GM ingredients, and are baked in Edinburgh, Scotland. They can be bought at most supermarkets for just under £1. The packaging: They have a white and green tartan (they are Scottish after all) cardboard box as outer packaging, which is recyclable. Inside, there are 4 individually clear plastic-wrapped puoches containing 6 oatcakes each. The outer packaging gives some helpful recipe suggestions, and information on oats and ...

Oatcakes aren't exactly the most exciting of foods - probably because their flavour is quite mild, and they need something else on them in order to create a worthwhile snack. Personally, I didn't like oatcakes until recently, and even now I'm not a massive fan - however, I do find them moderately tasty when topped with some butter and a nice slab of Cheddar. My last oatcake review was for the Tesco variety, so today it's the turn of the popular Nairn's Organic. Legend has it that Scottish Oatcakes were the reason why 14th Century Scottish soldiers were able to march longer than other men, but I'm afraid this isn't a claim I can test in this particular ...

My family tries to eat healthily so we tend to shop in Holland and Barrett quite a lot. They often have sales on, eg buy one get one half price, which is when I try to stock up on good quality 'health foods' such as oatcakes. I first tried Nairn's Organic Oatcakes at a friend's house. She used to eat them as mini pizzas with cheese and herbs on top, grilled for a couple of minutes and served with a dollop of ketchup. This may sound wacky but I tried the combination and somehow it really worked, and was also quite filling as the oatcakes are full of - you guessed it - oats! Seriously though, some products do not contain as much of the main ingredient as you ... Read the complete review
