When I was offered the chance to try out a pack of NO-NO’s new Mediterranean Style Flatbreads, I thought they sounded really nice but I wasn't really sure what to expect. I thought they might be a bit dry and bland and would need dipping in some sort of creamy, yoghurty or avocadoey-based dip to give them some oomph but it turns out I was wrong on that count - although they do taste delicious dipped too !
The new Mediterranean Style Sundried Tomato & Basil Flavour variety is described as an "Italian-inspired flavour wheat cracker". The packaging says : "Delicious 100% natural wheat cracker snacks baked with sundried tomato & basil flavour. Enjoy anytime, with or without dips." They are lovely and crunchy and taste almost buttery, so I was amazed to see that each large flatbread (weighing approximately 9g) only contains 35 calories. Two, or if you're feeling particularly peckish three, flatbreads would make a lovely satisfying snack that would be a lot healthier than a bag of crisps or a chocolate bar. They're big on taste too and have no added sugar, preservatives or additives.
We also received a box of their Sesame Seed Topped Flatbreads which are equally delicious. They are slightly higher in fat, but still less than 10% which is pretty good, and they are also made with 100% natural ingredients. They have a really strong but not overpowering, natural sesame seed taste which means that they taste delicious on their own, straight from the box.
My first thought was that they would be a bit dry and bland. When they passed the taste and texture test with flying colours, I thought they must be really high calorie and packed with unhealthy fats, but I was wrong on that count too. They should certainly change their name and logo from No-No to Yes Yes ! I've been looking for healthy, low fat snack options that are big on taste in this New Year period of healthy resolutions and I need look no further.
