The very first time I tried Old London Melba Toast I was maybe 7. My mother was going through what I can only describe as a "hippie" phase when it came to food. Out went the white bread and Twinkies and in came the brown (wheat) bread and carob chips. I have no idea who she was kidding with the carob chips since she LOVES good quality, dark chocolate as much as I do.
One of the few things she introduced that I LOVED was Melba Toast. It's light and crunchy with lots of flavor. Melba toast was great with cheese, peanut bugger, or just plain butter and jelly!
Old London has Healthy Snacks
Recently I received three packages of Old London snacks including Bagel Crisps, Melba Snacks and good old fashion Melba Toast (no added seasoning) to try. These are great snack options for my family as they are all low in calories with no trans fat and the melba toast has whole grain.
The girls loved dipping the bagel chips and round melba snacks into hummus along with fresh carrot and celery sticks. We also found out there were a very filling snack when paired with cheese and a piece of fruit. I'm trying to cut back on my bread intake these days so I devoured them with tuna, and along side my daily salad, instead of my usual sandwich on two slices of high-calorie bread.

Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Old London and received product samples and a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate. All opinions are my own and my stories are true - my mom really did introduce me to melba toast when I was a kid during her hippie food stage. I think she also introduced me to some seaweed stuff but thankfully I blocked most of that from my memory.
