I usually do not write about food because I’m not exactly what one would call a “foodie”, but I just couldn’t resist the need to share. I have become quite addicted to the grapefruits at a local market in Florida called Countryside Citrus. Last week, I went shopping at Countryside while hungry, and therefore, spent an insane amount of money on my grapefruits, other fruits, veggies, dips and crackers. I normally go to the market specifically for fruits and veggies, so the crackers and dip were the items that my hunger grabbed off the shelf and threw into my basket.
Sesmark Lightly Salted Mini Rice Crackers are simply the most awesome snack food I’ve had in a long time. While the Wind and Willow Asiago and Roasted Garlic dip was also fantastic with these, the rice crackers did a great job standing out on their own. I expected them to be light like a rice cake, but the surprise is that they are very crispy, like a potato chip, and packed with flavor. The best part is that they are only 120 calories for 40 crackers! Mind you, they are about the size of a quarter, so don’t get too excited about the quantity in a serving size. But there aren’t too many food items that you can have forty of without sending your cholesterol through the roof. And a bonus for anyone who is into the gluten free diet movement-they are sans gluten! The crackers come in another flavor, which I’ve yet to try-Sesame Garlic. Sesmark also makes chocolate varieties as well. A box of this oven baked snack cost me four dollars, so they are a tad on the pricey side for a small box of crackers. But the taste definitely made up for it, and I would say is well worth it.
If you are looking for a low cal, gluten free snack to ward off the munchies, I would definitely give these a try!
