I never used to be a fan of rice cakes. I used to find the texture weird, and they used to stick to the roof of my mouth a bit.
Then I discovered chocolate covered rice cakes and things changed. I quite often buy the dark chocolate ones from Waitrose (Itsu I think), and then I was offered the chance to review some Kallo ones.
The quinoa and seeds ones were lovely too, although quite sweet tasting. They were covered in seeds, hence the before-topping photo.
Topped with black bean spread and avocado- such a good snack.
Of course they are always good covered in hummus, nut butter or nutella (my favourite- I can’t believe I don’t have a picture of this, although I am sure you can imagine what it looks like).
I didn’t try the yoghurt ones as I am not keen on yoghurt coated things- I took them into work and they looked pretty. You can see their whole range of rice cakes here– I like the sound of the blueberry and vanilla ones, and ordered some balsamic vinegar ones from ocado as I quite like savoury snacks like that, although to me they tasted a bit more like marmite (but I like marmite too).
They are more of a at-home snack as I find they do not last well in my bag, plus I think they generally need some sort of topping (apart from the chocolate coated ones) but I am a bit of a convert. I only wish I had a tin big enough for them- I have a ryvita tin but the big tubes of rice cakes don’t fit in it!
Are you a rice cake fan? What would be your ideal flavour? Of course rather predictably I think that a chocolate peanut butter topping would go so well.
