A crispy snack
Member Name: CarolineMB
Advantages: Low in calories, can be sweet or savoury
Disadvantages: Can go soft if not stored correctly.
I eat these Crispbread crackers at lunchtimes with different toppings on them and find them very handy to have in the house. They come in two separate packets in the cardboard box which is good so that the whole lot of them aren't exposed to the air as soon as you've opened it. They cost £1.09 in Tescos but you can buy them at most supermarkets.
They are low in calories, only 19 calories per crispbread so great for people on a diet. They are very light in weight and in taste, there is a lot of air in them so they aren't a heavy cracker like a cream cracker. They are great at lunchtime if you want to put things like tuna and cucumber on them but I have also used them with sweet toppings on them such as marmalade or Nutella. It's good that they can serve a purpose as both a savoury snack and a sweet snack depending on what you put on them.
When you bite them they are very crisp and dry and they do melt in your mouth a bit due to the airy nature of them but I like this. If you don't store them extremely well the rest of the packet will go soft and chewy after a few days so they must be kept in air-tight containers. The use by date is always a long time in the future so you can store them in the cupboard for months. All in all a great handy snack to have in the cupboard.
N.B. The design of the cardboard packet is slightly different now to the picture above but it is the same product. It is still a yellow coloured box but slightly more orangey yellow than sunshine yellow.
Summary: A handy snack to have on standby in the cupboard
