A while back the lovely Snack Warrior over at Reaching for Refreshment reviewed the New Ryvita Fruit Crunch Apple & Cinnamon crispbreads. I was very apprehensive about what these would be like, when it comes to crispbreads I am a plain and simple savoury gal, but today’s review is challenging that as Ryvita kindly sent me some of their Fruit Crunch Apple & Cinnamon* to try.
First off how amazing is that tin! I love it!!! These crispbreads are part of their Fruit Crunch range and accompanies their Currants, Seeds & Oats, which to be fair sounds a little more Ryvita-esque than the dessert type of Apple and Cinnamon. That said let’s get onto the tasting.
Wholegrain Rye Crispbread with dried diced apple pieces, currants and cinnamon.
Resealable bag that actually does reseal, thank the lord! Opening these up I was instantly met with the familiar smell of Ryvita, dark and rich with a slight visual difference of a few embedded currants within the crispbread. Although they still carry their richness, the slight sweetness gave what is usually quite a heavy crispbread, a nice lift. There was a slight warmth from the cinnamon, although at times it was hard to detect and I couldn’t really taste any chewy apple. What I am most surprised about is the currants. I bloomin love them! Never would I have thought popping some currants in a crispbread and giving it a bit of a chewy texture, would be so yummy, and I am left feeling why have I waited so long to have currants in my crispbread?
As they are, plain and simple, they are very delicious and that really is the test here. Yes a spot of butter or other sweet topping could add to the flavour, but without they are still just as good. Although I cannot detect the apple, the cinnamon is just enough and those currents are on point. Ryvita have given their traditional crispbread a twist and have succeeded. If you are in doubt give them ago, go on, I dare you!
A big thank you to Ryvita for sending me these to try and of course for my awesome tin!
