A special thank you to my coworker who gave me this bag of Japanese style rice cracker snacks earlier this year. Thanks!!
The little star on the package is telling me “Baked Not Fried”. Could that mean this is a healthy snack? After an inspection of the back label I spy one ingredient that I try to stay away from (well, at least when I’m cooking at home), MSG. It’s number 6 on the list of ingredients. But on the plus side, there’s no fat or cholesterol, and a respectable amount of sodium and carbs. I’d say this qualifies as a good substitute to snacking on potato chips.
Taste wise, if Japanese senbei and BBQ potato chips had a kid, it would be this snack. It has the texture of senbei with the powdered BBQ seasoning of BBQ potato chips.
I think the guy on the left is the only one with a clue about what’s about to happen next.
