Summer Snacking with Melba Toast


For over 80 years, Old London Melba Toast has provided a great alternative to heavy breads or crackers, for healthier snacking. Most of the products are made with all-natural whole grains, which helps a simple snack like Melba Toast and hummus make you stay fuller longer.

I was sent 2 boxes of Melba Toast to try out recently.  I was sent the Sea Salt and the Spicy & Pepper flavors.  I tried them both and really liked the taste.  I'm not a huge fan of pepper or even spicy, but the Melba Toast Spicy & Pepper were pretty mild.  My husband really liked them and asked if he could have the box.  I thought it was pretty funny how excited he was about it.  He did comment that it wasn't as spicy as the box appears to be, but really liked them anyway.
The Sea Salt were my favorite.  Very yummy, and it is a subtle salt flavor, not overwhelming at all.  I loved that they are whole grain as well.  Plus the size is awesome.  Totally perfect for dipping or adding toppings. 

For more creative options, visit ToastForEverydayHealth.com for a variety of Melba inspired recipes – like Chocolate Pistachio Crunch, Atlantic Salmon Bites and Lemon Meringue Tarts – great for warm-weather entertaining!   They are even good dipped in regular salsa, yum!

This tour isn't just about a great snack though ~ Old London created the "Dance Your Way to Hollywood" sweepstakes.  One winner and a guest will win a trip to California for an all-expenses paid, dance-inspired getaway including private lessons at the 3rd Street Dance Studio and tickets to watch the taping of a popular television show. (The four-day, three-night, all-expense-paid trip will also include air travel and accommodations at a popular Hollywood hotel.)  Moms can enter the sweepstakes now through June 30, 2010, at www.toastforeverydayhealth.com


I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Old London Melba Toast and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
