I eat these things and ruin my diet just so I can tell you my honest opinions about the products. The things I do for you, readers *dramatic sigh*.
Slendier pasta and noodles
You’ve probably passed them by at health isles in the supermarket. Ever wonder what they’re like? They’re low calorie and low carbs with high fibre and low GI – it’s something you would want from a meal with pasta isn’t it? Unfortunately, it doesn’t replace pasta. They are delicious but for us (hubby and me) the food suited more of the Thai recipes or noodle recipes than pasta recipes. It didn’t ‘taste’ right having it with a Bolognese sauce. I would use it again but I would change the recipe to suit Asian dishes.
Blessed & Lucky Nut Spread
This range was popular in my household. It was also a hit with guests during our Earth Hour (aka Eat Hour) party. They have no artificial colours, flavours and preservatives, which is always a good thing. Our Canadian friend loved the Maple Bliss Nut Spread. Hubby loved the Honey Spread. I love both the honey and maple. But we didn’t’ really ‘get’ the Cinnamon Spice Nut Spread. It still tasted good but we preferred the honey and maple ones more. They were popular the next day too — on pancakes. I always bought sweet peanut butter from the Filipino shop because I didn’t like the non-sweet ones that hubby likes. Now, however, I have an alternative. Two at that too!
RITZ New Flavours
I try not to have Ritz in the house too often because, according to hubby, it’s the croissant of crackers. In reality though, I don’t buy it often because I usually end up finishing a pack without knowing it. Still, why pass up a chance to review the new flavours? How are they? As one friend describes it, the new flavours are “evil”. “If evil has a taste and a name, it’s ‘Tasty Cheddar Cheese Flavour Ritz Snakz.” Needless to say he finished the whole pack in one sitting. Aside from the Cheddar cheese, there’s sour cream & onion (yum), smoky bacon (double yum), the in-a-biskit range of chicken, dixie drumstick, and pizza (all evil). Yes, the range tastes great but, like everything else, eat it in moderation because you might finish the whole pack without knowing it.
