Food Finds: Raisin Rosemary Crisps

Sweet and Salty - Perfect Snack Food
Ever have a craving for something to munch on but can't decide between sweet or savory?  Well these crackers are your answer as they are sweet, salty, and also crunchy - another good attribute for a snack.

These tasty little morsels get their sweetness from the raisins, which happen to be another of my snack favorites, and their savory goodness from the rosemary, sea salt and black pepper.  They also contain sunflower seeds, flax seeds, and millet, making these a healthy and nutty tasting treat.

Raisin rosemary crisps are bite-sized, measuring approximately 1 1/2 inches by 1 3/4 inches.  A serving size is 12 pieces, which is enough to satisfy a snack attack, although I'm sure I could eat the whole box (5 servings). 

The Recommended Serving - 12 Crackers

Each serving has 90 calories, 2.5g Fat (no saturated or trans fats), no cholesterol, 130mg sodium, 16g carbs, 1g Fiber, 6g sugar, and 3g protein. For the WeightWatchers among us, a serving is 3 points.

Spread these with cream cheese for a light lunch, or serve them as an hors d'oeuvre with cheese and dips.

Find these tasty crackers at Trader Joe's.  A 5.3oz box is a bit of a splurge at $3.99, but worth every sweet, salty, crunchy bite.  Enjoy!
