Mary's Gone Crackers Organic Sticks & Twigs in Chipotle Tomato- at first I was excited- these sound really good! However, I do not think the product was as good as it had sounded.
On the cover of the package it says "LIGHT'N CRUNCHY PRETZEL-SNACK", which I certainly can agree with. Each piece was very crunchy, but sort of had an off crunch to it as well. I would assume it was from either the chia seeds, flax seeds or sesame seeds that were in these "Sticks & Twigs", as it had an extra bite along with the crunch.
I did detect a spicy aftertaste that left some heat in my mouth after eating these. It wasn't extremely spicy, but was sort of just the right amount to give it flavor, without being overpowering. What I was a bit disappointed with was the lack of tomato flavor- I really didn't taste any tomato. If anything, it had a very mild tomato-sauce flavor, but I probably would not have been able to guess it was tomato unless I was told the flavor was "Chipotle Tomato".
What I did like about these was that they were not that salty, so I think they would be just perfect for dipping into something like cream cheese- they would add an awesome crunch and a little extra flavor. I also liked that a 35 gram serving has 5 grams of both protein and fiber, and less than 1 gram of sugar.
