Real Rice Sticks add a modern touch to rice made snacks. Made with brown rice and rice bran oil, and hot air baked, they are light, crunchy, and very tasty. Their unique mouthwatering flavours are hard to resist. They are perfect for light snacks, lunch boxes, and gatherings with friends and family. This crunchy premium rice snack will tantalise your taste buds.
Turmeric sounded like a strange flavour to add to a snack product. It is a mild flavour that I usually think of as being an ingredient in a spice mix, there to add colour and a bit of depth rather than a strong presence. So I bit into the first one with no expectations - I thought they would be bland and quite dull. My friends had exactly the same thoughts; in fact, one of them said she did not fancy the idea and might just pass!
Well, there is always a first time. These rice sticks were not just palatable. They were seriously delicious, and if I had not already arranged to share them, I could have easily finished the entire packet on my own. A totally new taste sensation which I - and my two friends, not just the reluctant taster - will actively seek out because I think all three of us just might become addicted to them if we are not careful. They are full of flavour, subtle, slightly sweet and slightly spicy, crisp but without the greasy aftertaste that you usually get with snacks of this type.
Having sampled several pieces on their own, we put the rest into a bowl and added two chunky dips, one a lightly curried egg and parsley mix, the other a mild guacamole with a few white beans added. The intention was to dip the rice crisps into them and use them as an hors d'oeuvre. The taste combinations were perfect, but as the crisps are quite thick, I will reduce the dips to a smoother mixture next time so that they stick better. Having tried them like this, I would also like to serve them with the traditional kiwi onion and reduced cream dip on another occasion as I think this combination would be even better. That is, if the crisps actually make it to the plate and don't all get eaten on the way!
All three of us tried to find something negative to add about this product, but we could not think of anything. The main ingredient is brown rice which also means that there is more fibre than you would normally expect in a snack food like this, and that contributes to the richness of the flavour. They are low fat, low sugar, made from quality ingredients, free of gratuitous additives, and reasonably priced. What more could you ask from a snack food?
