“ Brand: Ryvita / Type: Snacks „
Well finally I'm getting there with only 2 pounds to go before I reach my first target weight, then anything after that is a bonus.It hasn't been easy as usually I would have a packet of Ryvita's in the cupboard to munch on but I have a dodgy tooth at the moment and anything hard sends shooting pains through my jaw, so it was hard finding something to eat for my tea in the evenings until I discovered Crackerbread that was wholegrain!.
I have always liked Crackerbread in the past but had found them a bit boring recently so stopped buying them. It was while I was in Morrissons that I noticed that they were doing any boxes of Crackerbread ( I thought they only did the one in the yellow box!) 2 for £1.00 instead of 84p each. So I grabbed these Wholegrain ones which come in a much smaller box and are only 125g compared to the yellow box which is 200g.
Now the Wholegrain Crackerbread are slightly longer than the original ones and are of course a different colour, with them not being a pale light colour but a brown colour that you would associate with wholegrain. These still have the crispy snap to them when you bite into them but they do have a lovely wholegrain taste that makes them a bit more tasty than the original ones which are a bit bland.
I like to eat these with some soft cheese spread on with a bit of Daddies brown sauce and a tiny amount of grated cheese scattered across the top then sandwich them together, these make a lovely snack to have and I have even been taking them to work and making them up when I'm feeling a bit peckish, as you can't make these up earlier as they would go soggy.
Each Wholegrain Crackerbread contains;
~~~Calories 20 ~~~
~~~Sugar 0.3g ~~~
~~~Fat 0.2g ~~~
~~~Saturates trace ~~~
~~~Salt 0.05g ~~~
These are roughly half a Weightwatchers point each.
So all in all these crackers are quite good for you as they are high in fibre and low in saturated fat and make a good alternative to eating bread if you suffer from bloating like I do. They do contain wheat and milk and also may contain soya. Wholegrain wheat flour is the main ingredient in these being 91% with sugar, skimmed milk powder, vegetable oil and salt being the rest of the ingredients. There is also a tip that to recrisp these just heat gently in the oven. I'll have to give that one a try although I have never found mine to go soft. You get 24 crackers in a wholegrain box compared to 40 in the original box, so they seem to be ripping you off a bit being that these have wholegrain in!.
The only gripe I would have with these like the original ones as well is that they can make a lot of mess when eating as they seem to shed lots of powdery crumbs everywhere and if you are wearing a black top like I was at work the other day it looks like you have very bad dandruff!!!!.
I'm knocking one dooyoo star off as I think they could put a few more crackers in the box!.
