Gourmet Wafer Crisps
Gourmet Wafer Crisps are cracker shaped treats which are made out of cheese and herbs. They are wheat free, gluten free, sugar free and provide 20% of your daily calcium too!
Made by the Kitchen Table Bakers, these crackers are about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and come in a variety of flavors. We have tried the flax seed, italian herb, garlic, rosemary, sesame, jalapeno and "everything" varieties. They are tasty and very strong flavored - meaning you only have to eat a few of them to feel quite satisfied.
These aren't the type of crackers that you have to down a whole box before you get the sense of fullness. Their serving size is 3 crackers - and they mean it. Really, these things are so loaded with flavor that you nibble them and three is quite enough!
What are they like? Have you ever microwaved cheese, and had some of it get hard and crunchy? In essence that is what these seem to be. They are cheese circles, hard and crunchy. This makes them great to layer with cucumber slices, carrot sticks and a variety of other things. You can eat them raw or with a dip.
They have no trans fats at all, only 2g of total carbs - and you get to subtract one of those for fiber! So really it is only 1g of net carbs per serving. Talk about an almost zero carb treat! Plus no sugar, no tooth decay. That 20% calcium is a wonderful help too.
Now I have to caveat here that I am in general a "plain cheese" type of person. I like gruyere and cheddar, gouda and edam, but all of those are rather mild flavored cheeses. I am personally not a fan of stronger flavored cheeses. The aroma of these is like a strong cheese - to me - so that is off-putting to me. However, I have offered these crackers to numerous friends and they all LOVE the crackers. With the variety of flavor options, you really can find one just perfect for what you like to eat.
So that's the only concern I would voice here. They're nutritious, super low carb, very tasty and filling. However, if you really have a problem with strong-smelling cheese, you might want to get just one container to start with, to see how you find these.
