Mediterranean Snack Foods Review & Giveaway **Closed**


 
If you love crackers and baked chips then you are gonna love this new company called Mediterranean Snack Foods! They are really awesome and I have some great flavors to tell you about that are unusual but fabulous with sliced cheese! Here are the flavors that we got to try:

1. (2) boxes of Rosemary Lentil Crackers
2. (2) bags of Cucumber Dill Baked Chips
3. (2) bags of Parmesan Garlic Baked Chips
4. (2) bags of Rosemary Herb Baked Chips

Oh, my, where to start, okay, let's go with Rosemary Lentil Crackers. These are really flavorful small little crackers that are filled with protein from the lentils. Best part of all is that they are Gluten Free and are baked with all natural ingredients. Lentils are among the world’s healthiest foods and are high in protein, iron, vitamin B1 and essential minerals for a healthy diet. Put a slice of Gouda cheese on this cracker and your mouth will burst with flavor!

My favorite was the Cucumber Dill Baked Chips. I have always been partial to dill flavored anything and these were no exception. The baked chips are high protein, nutritious lentils, garbanzo and adzuki beans. All of the baked chips are very crisp and will break with a distinct crack that tells you they are highly fresh. One thing I can't stand is to get a stale cracker! We went with a cucumber dill dip that I make which is made of plain yogurt and then dill and grated cucumbers and shallots to make this wonderful creamy dip and these two were perfect together.

Mike liked the Parmesan Garlic Baked Chips the best. He is crazy over cheese flavored products and this was no exception. The Parmesan Garlic crackers had a slight zing to them and I haven't placed it yet but I will. I also found out that they are 70% less fat than real chips and that they are a good source of iron and fiber! Who knew that such a little cracker could pack such a wallop!

These crackers are also made from the lentils, garbanzo and adzuki beans. (that is where all your fiber is coming from) And I do have to admit I liked them pretty good myself especially with the Gouda cheese that Mike bought home one night to eat with them. He had to eat the smoked Gouda my himself because I wasn't too keen on smoked cheese. It tends to make me swell and gives me heartburn so I stay away.
 
As for the Rosemary Baked Chips I really could not tell too much difference between them other than one is a cracker and on is a baked chip. I liked the baked chips because they are really crisp and crunchy! This chip was good for a spinach veggie type dip and that is exactly what we did one night. Gosh, it sure was good.

We topped it off with some Asiago Cheese and that really was a huge hit! There is so much you can do with these chips and crackers. I am thinking we might try a cold cut sliced small and thin and topped with a slice of either Colby Jack Cheese or White Cheddar Cheese would go good on this particular cracker or chip.

 
They have several more flavors to try like the Sea Salt crackers and chips, Roasted Pepper, Multi Grain, Cracked Pepper crackers and chips and they also have Veggie Straws and Veggie Chips. There is also something called Wingers in three different flavors (they are all HOT) just like real wings! I also found out that Cracked Pepper Baked Lentil Chips, Sea Salt Baked Lentil Chips, and all three flavors of Lentil Crackers are certified by the Non-GMO Project!

Isn't that great considering that they are all gluten free also? I also found the Recipe page on their website and there was a really good Hummus Dip that would be awesome on any of the crackers or chips.
