I first noticed Ryvita Minis popping up in my supermarket a few months before xmas, and being a bit of a savoury snack addict decided to give them a go.

Although not a ryvita fan at all i was pleasantly surprised by them, wholesome and delicious - that is a first for me!

They come in 5 delicious flavours:-

Cream Cheese and Chive,
Garlic and Herb,
Worcester Sauce,
Mature Cheddar and Onion, and
Tomato Salsa.

According to the blurb on the bag they are only 3% fat, which belies the lovely flavour and generous amount in a portion (30g compared to 25g in a standard bag of crisps). This equates to 0.8g of fat and 102 calories per bag - hardly even a dent in the recommended daily amounts for average adults!

As the name suggests they are made from wholemeal rye, which is high in fibre, so eaten as part of a healthy diet they can help maintain a healthy digestive system.

At 48p for a bag from a Tesco near you (and i am sure most supermarkets/local shops will stock them also), they wont break the bank either, although you might find you need to buy more than one, as i have found one downfall associated with this product:-

They are just too moreish! Not such a healthy option if you find yourself eating two bags in a row!

There is one last point that i have to make, but a very important one. Anyone with food allergies should read all ingredients on food products for allergens before consuming. There is a helpful list on this item directly under the ingredients which contains the following:-

Rye, Barley, Gluten, Soya, and traces of Sesame Seeds.

This is i am sure a pre-requisite for all allergy sufferers, but it is good to see the allergens listed separately and in bold writing so they cannot be missed.

l've not tried these yet, but some of the flavours have Milk products in them (and I am intolerant of milk-sugar) so I have tended to avoid them . . . . . . &#9829 . jes . &#9829

I have never seen these but my mum and sister would just love them. Tend to be more a crisp person but they look good for a healthier option snack. Good review. thanks x
