…… – JD, 5 (too busy eating for a quote)
Lunch gets a bit samey in this house sometimes, especially as JD pretty much always asks for ham salad sandwiches. It’s fine with me, but even though he keeps asking for them, he gets bored and ends up leaving his lunch half eaten.
These Warburtons Sandwich Thins make a small but welcome change.
They’re like very skinny rolls – think floured roll meets flatbread and you’re kind of there. They taste fresh, smell good, and because they’re individually baked, they hold their shape better than thin sliced bread without going soggy. On the flip side, though, the shape also means they don’t close around the filling, so small bits of salad will probably fall out as you eat them.
We all enjoyed them as sandwich bread, but I think they come into their own toasted and spread with a thin layer of salted butter – LUSH.
I thought perhaps they’d work well if you’re trying to reduce your carbs in your diet, but each thin (two sides) contains 100 calories, 1.1g fat and 0.41g salt, which probably makes it roughly comparable to a couple of slices of thinly sliced standard bread.
Price wise, you get 6 thins (225g) for £1.20, so it’s quite pricy compared to, say, a Warburtons milk roll loaf, which is just 85p for 400g.
We probably wouldn’t buy Warburtons Sandwich Thins regularly, but more as a lunchtime treat now and then, just to keep things interesting.
