Old London Whole Grain Roasted Garlic Melba Snacks Review

Old London Roasted Garlic Melba SnacksMelba toast is named after an old singer for whom the snack was originally made. I used to see it as pre-packaged pairs of crackers next to the soup in my college cafeteria. I didn't know they were sold in larger portions until I saw Old London Roasted Garlic Melba Snacks.

Each Melba piece is roughly the area of a Ritz cracker but has a crunchy thickness to it. When they say it's garlic flavored, they really mean it. There is A LOT of garlic seasoning on the crackers, making them pretty salty but very flavorful.

The only downside, though, is that my fingers were covered in the seasoning after eating just a few pieces, but I suppose the hassle was worth it. Although the label says "Whole Grain" on the label the ingredients list starts with enriched wheat flour, followed by whole wheat flour, palm oil etc.

A serving of 4 pieces of Old London Whole Grain Roasted Garlic Melba Snacks provides 50 calories, 1 gram of fat, 5% of the daily value for sodium, 1 gram of dietary fiber and sugar, plus 2 grams of protein.

A 5.25 ounce box of Old London Whole Grain Roasted Garlic Melba Snacks provides about 10 servings costs $1.79 at Target. These are perfect for a light snack as the heavy garlic seasoning kept me from plowing through the box. All in all, I liked these very much and I wouldn't mind giving the other varieties a try, like Whole Grain, Sesame, Spicy 3 Pepper, Sea Salt and Cheddar.
