We usually have papadums with curry, but when I was given the opportunity to review this product I immediately started wondering how well they would go instead. I needed to check the heat intensity first as I did not want to suddenly up the spice content to the point where nobody apart from myself would actually eat the meal! So I first tried a single rice stick from the packet to see what it would be like. I am happy to report that the "hot" part of the description places it firmly at the lower end (ie mild) of the spectrum. Spicy these snacks may be, but they are easy to eat to the point that even children, who frequently have a lower tolerance to hotter foods, might enjoy.

And so we went ahead with our planned green curry. I had deliberately selected this one because one of our visitors is prone to mouth ulcers if he eats anything outside the mild range, but he enjoys Thai cuisine and is able to eat a range of foods as long as they don't irritate his mouth. I had made the curry the day before their lunchtime visit (because curry is always better made in advance - it lets the flavours settle) using green curry paste and fresh vegetables from the garden.

I waited till the last minute to add the rice sticks as I was afraid they might go soft once they came in contact with the curry, but I need not have worried. They provided extra crunch and flavour right until the last mouthful. This crispness was reinforced by what happened next.

One of our visitors had overestimated his appetite so he had left about a quarter of his helping on his place, complete with half a dozen sticks. He said he hated leaving food but that it was no reflection on the quality - he had really liked the combination, but was far too full to manage the rest. However, he thought he might reheat it later and finish it for afternoon tea. I put his plate in the fridge, and sure enough, three hours later he felt ready to tackle his leftovers. I reheated the food in the microwave, apologising in advance in case the sticks had gone soft. But no - they had lost the edge of their extreme crunch but were still crisp enough to generate a satisfactory level of crunch. Even when microwaved!

Of our group of four, three of us said we would buy this product again. The fourth person said he does not normally buy snack foods, but if he were to choose something, he would probably go for this one or another flavour from the same range as he was surprised by just how much he had enjoyed it.
