garlic crostini, mini basil breadsticks and oregano rice crackers
I received this snack in my January Graze Box.
With this savory selection, I decided to choose something a little bit tart and a little bit sweet for an interesting contrast. I brewed some of this Green Tea Honey and Lemon from Tea of Life. A really nice choice.
What I Think:
This is tasty. It’s a hearty, satisfying, savory snack.
The breadsticks are very flavorful. There’s a big punch of basil flavor. A nice crunch to these … but also a little bit of a “bready” inner texture that I enjoy.
I found the garlic crostini to be a little “lacking” in flavor after I’d eat one of the mini basil breadsticks mostly because the breadsticks are really loaded with flavor. To get the most out of the garlic crostini, I found that eating them one after another helped to develop the garlic and buttery taste.
My favorite part of this snack though, is the oregano rice crackers which look like no crackers I’ve ever seen. They are shaped like … well, imagine if you would a piece of flattened popcorn as it starts to regain some shape. Or perhaps … they look a bit like a miniature pressed cookie. I love the flavor of these, and I taste not just oregano but a mixture of herbs to this. But the best thing about these little crackers is the texture. I love the texture of rice crackers, and there seems to be a somewhat “caramel-y” taste to these too, making them quite yummy. I’d like to be able to get a box of these on their own.
My Final Thoughts:
I enjoyed this snack, but I don’t know that I liked it enough to give it a “like.” It’s not something that I immediately felt I needed to do like I needed to do with the chutney snack from this month’s box. I do like those rice crackers, though and I might like them enough to “like” the snack just to get more of them.
