Pros: Healthy, Yummy, Unique, Non-Pedestrian
This review goes out to my friend Jessica who, when we lived together on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, would travel to the West Village to the British food shop to buy Twiglets. That's like 100 blocks!! For a pretzel-like snack, covered in a salty yeast mixture. But, I have to admit, they are pretty tasty. And apparantly good for digestion (??). Probably as good as any carbohydate-y snack can be for digestion. I more think of yogurt and leeks and bran as being good for digestion. But apparantly Twiglets too.
Ahem, anyway. This review is about Sticks and Twigs, because I think Mary's Crackers has successfully American-ized the classic Brittish snack. And improved upon it. This version is not so yeasty. But still has a salty taste, without being packed with sodium. It is definitely a better option than eating a bowl of pretzels. A sophisticated option for serving your friends in a big bowl on game night, book club night, game night. Because it is not like serving a bowl full of Ritz crackers or pretzels, which everyone knows are either bad for you, cheap, or thoughtless. Sticks and Twigs are a bit more obscure, and that makes them gourmet.
And it is nice that they cme from such a nice and responsible company, and are made with natural ingredients.
