I have bought rice cakes on and off over the years and decided to buy some lately as I was trying to go more wheat free.
These plain rice cakes are quite inexpensive and a pack tends to last a while as I only eat two at a time.
These 'cakes' are 3.5 by 0.5 inches and are a round disc of puffed rice which is moulded and compressed into a disc shape.
Being mostly rice with only a tiny bit of salt these do not have a lot of flavour and in fact do quite resemble polystyrene but they are a good healthy sort of snack for when you just feel like a little something with your cup of tea.
The flavoured varieties have less rice in them and more added ingredients so to my mind are not quite as healthy. Also with them being almost twice the price of these plain rice cakes I do not think that the cost is justified.
These may be rather tasteless as I do tend to eat them with nothing on and just with a cuppa, but they are something you can get used to and are quite good for those cutting down on wheat, slimming or who have to follow a blander sort of diet.
They quite quite well but do re-seal the pack or the top one will go a bit soft.
There are all sorts of rice cakes around the world and these are made from popped rice. Apparently when they are prepared at the right temperature they will mould themselves to the required shape and hold together without any gumming additives.
The texture is reminiscent of Sugar Puff cereal.
Not the tastiest of snacks but a healthy option to keep in your cupboard.
