Originating in the Middle East, these thin, crisp-bread snacks are now available worldwide and are a very tasty, healthy, anytime snack.
Made with a few simple natural ingredients including both whole-meal and plain flour, olive oil and sea salt and nothing your grandmother wouldn't recognize!
Eat them on their own, or with dips, pate, salsa and with all types of cheese.
I have been walking passed these crispy Lavosh snacks for months. Every time I see them on the shelf I want to buy them. But the price was holding me back a little. Finally they were on special one week and I couldn't stop myself. So I bought home a bag of the Sea Salt and Olive Oil flavour. This is probably the plainest one available in the range. But to be honest the reason I picked it was the bright blue bag.
Blue is my favourite colour and this blue bag is just such a striking colour. It makes the maroon of the 180 degrees branding stand out. There is also a small clear window so you can see what you are getting. The bag itself was easy to open and easily re-sealable. I wasn't too sure what to expect.
When I opened the packet, I pulled one of the snacks out. The texture of the snack was thick. There is a scan't amount of oil on the surface. When I snapped the snack, it made a satisfying crunch sound. I noticed that they were all a regular rectangle shape. Some of them were connected, but it was easy to snap them apart.
These snacks are great with a dipping sauce. I tried some BBQ sauce I made. Plus I did a sour cream with sweet chilli. They are great with a little slither of cheese and chutney. I also tried them plain. Plain they have that olive oil taste with a slight saltiness. They are a little drying to the tongue after a while. I have kept them in the same bag for over a month, revisiting when the desire arises. I can say that they have stayed nice and fresh the whole time which is a bonus. I'd like to try the other flavours.
