I'm trying to lose weight right now (a constant battle) and needed something to go with the myriad of low-fat soups I've been eating. I don't eat bread and I'm so bored with Ryvita, so it was nice to see these flatbreads on sale.
These sundried tomato and basil flatbreads are by No-No. I have never heard of this company/manufacturer before and can only assume they are new(?)
They come in a pale blue cardboard box. The front of the box has a clear plastic section so you can see the long, thin flatbreads inside. Also on the front is a drawing of plum tomatoes and a drawing of a house which I guess is supposed to be in Greece/Italy as these claim to be 'Mediterranean Style'.
The pack says that on average it contains 15 flatbreads, but I would estimate that there was more like 20 in the pack I have.
The flatbreads are thin and pale in colour - sort of the same colour as a cream cracker, but generously flecked with dried basil.
Biting into them, they are very crisp, not soft, soggy or stale. They are crunchy to chew. The over-riding taste is of the basil, and I have to say that I didn't detect much tomato flavour at all.
I have these with soup but they would be perfectly nice to eat on their own. They would taste great with pesto or houmous but you wouldn't necessarily need a topping as they aren't especially dry. They are more flavoursome than all lot of low-fat crackers and feel more filling and substantial as a result.
I have only seen this 'flavour' of flatbreads in my local supermarket, however 7 others are available which I shall be looking out for:
Hot 'N' Spicy
Cinnamon & Sugar
Each flatbread has 35kcal and 0.1g of saturated fat so these a good for a balanced diet. They are made from 100% natural wheat although there are ingredients such as beetroot powder (never heard of it!) and soybean oil in the sundried tomato flavouring.
As far as flatbreads go, these are some of the nicest I have tried. That said, flatbreads/crackers etc are all fairly boring really (in my opinion) so it's tough to give any more than 3 stars. If you could give half-stars on dooyoo, I would be giving these 3 and a half!
At the moment these are on offer in Sainsbury's and are £1.19; however the regular price is £1.79. I will definitely be buying them again while they're on offer.
