Most people know the original Ryvita crispbreads which have been around for over seventy years. However I am only now becoming acquainted with their new ranges of flavours which have added ingredients. I began by sampling the Sesame Seed version and then worked my way to the Multigrain version.
Unlike normal Ryvita it is slightly darker and more crisp and 'short'. It still has the two different sides with indentations - one being deep and other more shallow. This means you can choose which side to put your fillings. Personally I always put my butter on the shallow depressions side as I do not want to use too much. The packaging always has serving suggestions of toppings and there are still more on the Ryvita website. However I stick to plain and simple toppings and will often have them with just a smearing of butter or else with cheese and some chopped onion.
These days I tend never to buy biscuits so two or three of these Ryvita with a cup of tea after a meal rounds the meal off nicely for me. Alternatively I will have three or four with cheese for a snack.
These Multigrain crackers are slightly more crunchy and flavoursome than the original versions. These have the five grains scattered over one side of the crackers, but not quite so many as with the sesame seed version. The little black specks are the linseeds but I do not really detect any of them by favour when I am eating the crackers - but they do add some goodness to your snack - I hope so anyway.
These crackers are the same price as the sesame seed ones but more expensive than the original plain crackers.
The packaging also advertises tins that can be bought to hold your crackers and keep them fresh - they are available in red or white and can be ordered by post or via the website for £4.49.
