Wasa Flatbread has been a favorite of mine for over 10 years now. The whole foreign, import thing is what initially turned me on to Wasa, but the taste and health benefits have had me hooked ever since. Besides toast or cereal, Wasa with peanut butter, almond butter, Nutella, or hummus is my usual go-to breakfast or carry-along snack.
You can’t imagine how thrilled I was when they asked me to review their new “Flatbread, Thin & Crispy” line of whole grain crackers. They sent me a box of each flavor: Original, Sesame, and Rosemary. My first reaction was that they were way too thin and fragile, and would be bland. This was far from the truth, as they had a crunchy texture that held up to the toppings I placed on them. The Original variety had a nice buttery flavor without containing any dairy ingredients (they’re vegan!). The Sesame variety had a very subtle sesame flavor. I was a little disappointed at how subtle the flavor was, but this is actually good considering you don’t want the cracker to outshine your toppings. The Rosemary variety was my favorite in flavor, but it was a bit salty and had a higher sodium content as a result. This variety also has visible sea salt flakes on top. A serving size is 2 crackers and each variety contains at least 1 gram of fiber, 8 grams of whole grains, 2 grams of protein, 11 grams of carbs, and 70 calories.
