As I don't eat 'normal' bread, I have an array of rice cakes, crackers and flatbreads in the cupboard. These No No Mixed Seeds Flatbreads are the latest addition. They are made of wheat and corn, have 100% natural ingredients, and are less than 10% fat. These are usually around £1.79 for a 125g box, but Sainsbury's have an offer on at the moment and I picked these up for £1.19. They come in a purple cardboard box with a clear plastic section on the front of the box so you can see the flatbreads inside. On the the front is also a picture of poppy, sesame and caraway seeds. Inside, the flatbreads sit in a smaller plastic tray, and each box contains around 20. The flatbreads are about half the width of a cream cracker, and twice the width. They are a brownish colour, similar to the colour of French toast. They are flecked on one side with poppy seeds, caraway seeds, sesame seeds and even little bits of salt. When you bite into one, they are brittle, and snap very satisfyingly! Crunchy but not dry, you won't need a big glass of water when eating these. The poppy and sesame seeds add a little bit of texture and the taste of the sesame seeds is the main flavour that comes through. The ingredients list also states that these include garlic powder and dried onion, and indeed I could definitely taste this too. The flatbreads have a lot of flavour, and it's tough to stop eating them! These taste great on their own but would be nice with houmous, tapenade, dips etc. Surprisingly lovely!
No-No Flatbreads - Mixed Seed Topping What are they? ************ Wheat & Corn Cracker snacks. Special features? ************* They are 100% from natural ingredients and have less than 10% fat. What do I think? ************* These are actually very tasty biscuits and I really like this as they are the perfect snack for lunchtimes and break times - are low in fat, salt and sugar, and are healthy in that they contain 100% wholesome natural ingredients and they are delicious too! The taste of the actual cracker is a little bland, but its texture slightly brittle but crisp. When you have bitten into it, after a few seconds, the aroma of the seeds start to disperse and you will soon really appreciate why the crackers taste so good, it is really more of a feast for your nose than the taste buds. With all the little bits of seed, it contributes towards a more varied texture, it's very interesting how they have managed to make such a brittle crisp cracker without it feeling drying in the mouth, it is possible to eat these without thinking about needing any water. The crackers are a elongated shaped - a rectangular sort of biscuit, big enough to have large slices of cucumber and tomato on top and also dollops of spread if required. However, I find these crackers best eaten on their own so that you can really appreciate the scent of the all natural ingredients. The crackers are a little expensive, they are about £2.75 for of about 15-20 crackers. I think they are imported as well, so maybe this is the reason for their higher price. However, once you've tried them, you'll feel that it's worth the extra money, as they taste sooo good ! Thanks for reading. ©Leighsa 2010.
