When you want something crunchy...or the right bread or cracker to go with your soup or yogurt or cottage cheese...the calorie counts can really add up.
That’s why we were so pleased to discover Wasa Crispbreads, a line of thick, crunchy, flavorful rye “crisp breads” where a generous slice, approximately 3-½" x 4-½", can be had for as little as 30 calories. They’re also full of fiber and trans fat-free.
Crispbread dates back to medieval times, when it was baked in Sweden and Finland to preserve the wheat crop over the long, cold winters. Wasa, named after the Swedish king Gustav Vasa, is baked in Sweden. (And, Wasa is pronounced Vasa.)
All flavors are tasty and it’s tough to decide, so our reasoning is: why double your calories when you can enjoy yourself perfectly well on the first half of the caloric scale? Here’s how the flavors weigh in (we tend to focus our attentions on Fiber Rye and Sourdough Rye):
20 calories/slice: Crisp’n Light 7 Grain
30 calories/slice: Light Rye
30 calories/slice: Fiber Rye, Soya
35 calories/slice: Sourdough Rye
45 calories/slice: Multi-Grain
45 calories/slice: Hearty Rye
60 calories/slice: Oats
60 calories/slice: Sesame Toast
We like Wasa so much, that we can enjoy it plain or with a dab of our favorite FAGE Total yogurt. But the food stylists at Wasa have created a beautiful display of morning-to-evening gourmet snacks. Click here to see them.
Wasa Crispbread package copy says, “Nothing compares with the taste and crunch of Wasa Crispbread.” We tend to agree.
