Pepperidge Farms 7 Grain Deli Flats are described as 100 calorie thin rolls that are an excellent source of fiber. "They are hearth baked with a soft and delicious taste, making them great for sandwiches, grilling and toasting."
Let me just cut to the chase: the 7 Grain Pepperidge Farm Deli Flats are so good! It doesn't have a strong wheaty taste, and in fact, it tastes a little sweet to me. I checked out the ingredients list to make sure it's made with whole wheat flour - and it is. I have to say, this is one of my favorite "bread flats." I found it on sale at my local supermaket for $2.49 and it was money well spent.
Each 43 gram 7 Grain Pepperidge Farm Deli Flat provides 100 calories from 1 gram of total fat, 170 mg sodium (7% of the daily value), 5 grams of fiber (20% of the DV), 3 grams of sugars and 6 grams of protein.
As I was checking out all the goodies in the supermarket aisle, I came across Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Simply Multi-Grain Cracker Chips. I remember reviewing Special K Cracker Chips recently, so I wondered if this would be similar. On the PF website, this is described as, "the next best thing in snacking. All the goodness of a whole grain cracker baked into a crunchy little chip ... one tasty combination! With 60% less fat than the leading potato chip and all the delicious flavor you crave, go ahead and crunch naturally."
What I found is that this is very different from Special K Cracker Chips in both taste and texture. The Pepperidge Farms Multi-Grain Cracker Chips are smaller, thinner, rectangular in shape but curvy on one side - whereas the Special K ones were like round discs. The PF Cracker Chips are pretty sturdy, salty, yet with a subtly sweet multi-grain taste. I really liked them and could definitely see myself eating this instead of potato chips.
Each serving of Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Simply Multi-Grain Cracker Chips provides 140 calories from 4 grams of saturated fat, 0.5 grams of which is saturated (6% and 3% of the daily value), 210 mg of sodium (9% of the DV), 2 grams of fiber, 3 grams of sugars and 1 gram of protein.
Pepperidge Farm says their 100% Natural Breads are "a good source of fiber, with no artificial color, flavors, or preservatives, certified by the American Heart Association and baked with lower sodium natural sea salt, which contains less sodium than regular salt."
The Pepperidge Farm Natural Honey Flax Bread is one of my favorite breads out there. The taste is really good although I must admit that the texture is kind of "rough" if you compare it to all of the other 'fluffy' breads. The flax seeds are clearly discernible, and the honey is mild yet very savory. This bread has so much flavor that I find myself eating it by itself and it's great.
Pepperidge Farm has created a new, natural, preservative free line of snacks dubbed Baked Naturals and my first impression of their wholesome attempt is one of approval. After eating dinner, my family and I decided to skip dessert and head straight for the newly discovered Toasted Wheat variety of the Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Wheat Crisps (there is also a Zesty Tomato Herb version). We always have to try a new product the day that it is purchased (it's basically a law in our household). After swallowing our first bite, my mother and I both said (at the same time), "This tastes like Wheat Thins ... only better!" That is probably the very best way to describe them, but for the sake of the review, I will try to be more descriptive.
These tasty crisps possess an imperfect square shape - sort of rustic looking. The picture on the box accurately depicts this fact. Each cracker is a crisp and crunchy textural delight, embellished by the "air bubbles" that make an appearance on about 99% of the crackers (a few are more on the flat side). Again, the picture on the box is a great representation, but mine were a bit darker brown. The taste is just as phenomenal as the texture and appearance. They have a slightly stronger "wheat" taste than Wheat Thins and do not seem as salty. In fact everything about this product, from the irregular shape and rustic texture just says "natural".
With all of the emphasis being put onto whole grains, many cracker companies have started offering whole wheat or multi-grain variations of tried and true classics. Unfortunately, this sometimes leads to disappointing textures or bitter aftertastes. Goldfish is merely fallowing the trend, but I must way, they've taken to it exceptionally well.
Everything that you love about Goldfish is still there; the sharp cheddar flavor, the crunchy yet somehow tender texture crackers shaped as cute little happy fish. I detected a mild wheat flavor, but it wasn't enough to overwhelm the cheddar flavor. They still hold up well in soup, though still get soggy after a little while. They naturally have a browner color than regular Goldfish, but considering the neon yellow hue of the original, this is a welcome difference.
