JayOne Sweet Crunchy Rice Snack
I never buy crunchy rice cakes like those of Quaker at the supermarket because they are hard enough to threaten to chip my glorious teeth. Why would I pay money for the risk?
But I got a free sample of JayOne’s Sweet Crunchy Rice Snack, and I never turn down an excuse to eat a freebie. To my surprise and my teeth’s gratitude, it was not only delicious − the texture was just right in that it was appetizingly crunchy yet not in a hard way. It never occurred to me you could make a crunchy rice cake like that.
The product is attractively packaged and the label is bilingual Spanish and English. Only the expiration date is in Korean, but you can tell from the numbers that the product is good till 2010-03-31.
I missed taking a picture of it in my hand, but it’s roll-shaped and looks much bigger than in the picture. Very filling. Gluten free. No preservatives. No artificial colors or flavors.
