With the prospect of spending far too many evenings nibbling on calorie-laden snacks over the festive period on the horizon, I was very pleased to received some Ryvita Thins to try out. They're thin, crispy, savoury flatbread squares that are baked to help keep the calorie and fat content down.
The first bag we tried was Sweet Chilli flavour which contain 80 calories and 0.3g of fat per serving of about 10 bites. The Madhouse Mini-testers thought they were a bit too spicy but the adults found them quite tame and I'd even say slightly bland. They're lovely dipped in guacamole or tangy cheese sauce though, although this does significantly raise the calorie count !
The other pack, Cheddar & Cracked Black Pepper, containing 89 calories and 2.1g of fat per 10 bite serving, got a unanimous thumbs-up though. They have a more subtle, delicate flavour than the usual cheesy snacks on the market, but they're also more sophisticated than a bag of Cheesy Wotsits or cheese and onion crisps !
All in all, they're a very satisfactory alternative to crisps or peanuts if you're watching your waistline.
