You are probably thinking ‘how nice can Ryvita be?’ but the Ryvita crunch is really tasty. They are good to have in your desk drawer or around the house if you fancy a sweet snack. My friend introduced me to them quite a while ago and she said that she could not stop eating them (she was pregnant at the time so I assumed her taste buds were a little off!). I cannot say that I rushed to the shop to try them, but when I bought a packet eventually I loved them, and they have been in my shopping trolley ever since.
Each slice has:

Ryvita is good for you because it is made of whole grain rye and whole grains, fruit crunch slices have also been topped with pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and whole grain oatflakes.
There are also recipes that you can experiment with involving fruit crunch slices www.mydish.co.uk make a really nice Ryvita Crunch Fool:
- 4 Ryvita Fruit Crunch Crispbreads
- 300g Raspberries
- 150ml Double Cream
- 125ml Greek Yoghurt
- 1 tbspn (to taste) Icing Sugar
- 1 tspn (to taste) Lemon Juice
- 4 strawberries (for decoration)
- 4 Serving glasses
- Rinse the berries and crush them roughly with a fork. Pour the cream into a chilled bowl and whip it untill it stands in soft folds, ensure that it is not too stiff. Gently fold in the yoghurt and two thirds of the crushed raspberries. Stir in the lemon juice and the icing sugar to taste.Stir in the reserved third of raspberries, leaving a trail of red through the pink of the fool. Crumble the Ryvita roughly, and sprinkle half of the rubble into the bottom of the dishes, dollop a spoonful of the creamy mixture on top, sprinkle with the remaining Ryvita pieces, and finish with the rest of the fool mixture. Top each one with a strawberry, and chill until you are ready to serve.
So give them a try the next time that you arr shopping, I usually buy them in Sainsbury’s, it can be a bit more difficult to find them in other supermarkets. They retail at £1.45per packet.
