Review: Sakata Japanese Crackers

I think it's fair to say that everyone loves a little snack now and again or in my case every day! So the healthier that snack is the better. I always feel that mums have it in their nature to be grazers, as we have to adapt our meal times around our kids and I often find myself going hungry without even realising it as I'm too busy for food! That's why a handy snack at the ready is always well received.

So it's with great pleasure that I introduce to you Japanese rice cracker brand Sakata. They have recently launched a range of mouth-watering new flavours, providing the perfect snack for the calorie conscious mum who doesn’t want to compromise on taste.

I'm right into my savoury treats; cheese, rice cakes, crackers, crisps! I love them all so I was doubly excited to try these goodies out. They're low in saturated fat, gluten free and made with no artificial flavours or colours. They’re baked too which makes them even healthier and they come in five different flavours; Lightly Salted, Sour Cream & Chive, Sizzling Barbecue, Roast Tomato & Balsamic and Seaweed & Soy Sauce. I was sent the lightly salted, sizzling barbecue and seaweed & soy sauce to try out and can I just say they're delicious!

The sizzling barbecue and seaweed & soy sauce are great as a snack on their own, very tasty. I'd say the lightly salted is a bit plain for my tastes, but still yummy, so it would be perfect with some dip/ houmous etc. I was only sent these the other day but since I had the house to myself last night I complete scoffed the whole pack of sizzling barbecue!! It's ok though since each cracker is only 8 calories or less each - happy days! My other half really liked the seaweed & soy sauce so I've left them for him and Logan to finish off. Oh and yes even Logan, who's 3 years old, loved these snacks. I make snack plates up for Logan all the time with things such as; grapes, strawberries, bread sticks, rice cakes, cheese etc so it's always good to have something different to add to it. Kids get bored so easily with the same thing.

Sakata say that the: "Sakata rice crackers were created by the Sato Brothers in the Japanese village of Sakata more than 50 years ago. Hugely popular in Australia, the brand first launched earlier in the UK this year and has been delighting Brits ever since."

Sakata rice crackers are available in 100g packs from Sainsbury’s, Morrison’s, The Co-operative, Waitrose and Ocado (RRP £1.99). The Seaweed & Soy Sauce crackers are available exclusively from Sainsbury's stores and I highly recommend you try them.

Overall very tasty perfect little snacks to nibble on throughout the day, on the move, at a party with dips, for the kids lunch/ snack time etc. They're very versatile and at only 8 calories or less per cracker you can't go wrong. Pricing seems fair too for what you get considering these are quite healthy and you do get a lot per pack. The flavours are yummy the only one I wasn't too keen on was the Lightly Salted but this can be overcome with dip or houmous. The other half really didn't like the Lightly Salted though but he loved the seaweed ones.

Mummies rating - 8/10
Other Half's rating - 6.5/10
Logan's rating - 7/10
