After trying Mary’s Gone Crackers in the Original flavor, I’ve been trying to hunt down the Sticks and Twigs for a while. Luckily, I spotted all three of the Stick and Twigs flavor at a random Whole Foods I just happened to popped into. Of the three flavors, Sea Salt, Curry, and Chipotle Tomato, I picked the most interesting flavor — curry. Not many snacks are curry flavor and I was intrigued. I guess this is a new version of their Sticks & Twigs because it says that it now contains CHIA SEEDS. Awesome! As with all of Mary’s Gone Cracker products, they are organic, wheat-free, gluten-free, kosher, vegan & dairy free and made with whole grains you can see.
When you open the bag, you can definably smell the curry flavor. The stick & twigs come in long and short sizes and are hollow in the middle. Not as thick as the cracker form so it is easier to bite and chew. Hard and crunchy. A little on the salty side, or is it the curry flavor that is giving me a salty sensation? I like these better than the crackers actually. The curry flavor is interesting. Smells stronger than it taste, but at times, you get a twig that is like WOW — CURRY. The more I eat them, the more I like it. Delicious, but I am up for trying the Sea Salt and Chitpotle Tomato flavor as well. Like with the crackers, the sticks & twigs has visible seeds sand grains all over. Imagine these twigs like a Mary’s Gone crackers rolled up, leaving the center hallow, but not as thick. Love the simple and awesome ingredients in the toss: Brown Rice, flax seed, sesame seed, amaranth, millet, whole quinoa, whole red quinoa, and chia seeds. One serving (30g) is 150 calories, 3 WW, 5 grams of fat (o.5 gram saturated, 2.5 grams PUFA & 1.5 grams MUFA), no cholesterol, 190 milligram of sodium, 170 milligram of potassium, 20 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, no sugar and 4 grams of protein. Now that is the kind of snack I don’t mind keeping around the house. I like to toss a few twigs in my salads to get a little crunch factor going on too. Mary’s Gone Crackers tweets too!
