The mix of dry resins and nuts, add a good aroma to the final product. These cookies taste great, but production team needs to take care of the hardness.
While the ingredients used in the cookies look interesting, they don’t do much when you take a bite of the cookie. It is too hard and therefore not something that people would enjoy with their cup of tea.

A good preparation with the right blend of sugar and spice. The flavor of honey and tanginess of chilly have been well blended to make an interesting preparation out to regular nuts. Sprinkled sesame adds both to the visual appeal and taste of these nuts. But some of the nuts seem to have been over roasted which leave a slightly bitter after taste in the mouth. It must be remembered that any dish or snack is first eaten with the eyes before it reaches the mouth and hence it is important that the look is as good as the taste -  otherwise it ends up being a wasted effort.

Monica’s Innovation:

1.    Soak ‘Oatmeal Chewy’ in half a bowl of cold milk and let them dissolve. Add a few freshly chopped walnuts and you have a healthy bowl of cereal for breakfast. Tip: A spoon of honey could be added to satisfy that craving for something sweet. 

2.    Cut the Pepper crackers into half, top them with thinly cut slices of cheese or low fat cottage-cheese and top up with a mix of finely chopped tomatoes & onion. Garnish it with a drop of tomato sauce and a coriander leaf. You have a ready to pop-in snack. For the very weight conscious, this cracker could be served with homemade salsa dip.

This could make for a very interesting snack, if accompanies with a salsa orgarlicdip.But left on it’s own, it leaves a very dry andneutral taste in the mouth. The look of the cracker makes you much more than the taste provides you with. Very Berry Strawberry (Speciallydehydratedfruitwith all the micronutrients intact. Great for having around the year):Dried prunes have always been a favorite choice for healthy snacking. Sothispackofdried strawberries comes as a refreshing change. They have a nice taste and texture & leave one feeling quite satisfied after a munch.Howeverthatsatisfaction lasts only to the time you don’t have a look at the price tag on the packet. The product is quite steeply priced for the quantitybeingofferedand may not down well with an average consumer.  It might end up becoming a rich man’s snack. Yummy Jaipuri Mixture (A roasted… not fried, mix of delicious and healthy lientils, seeds, grams & peanuts) :A nice blend of nuts and lentilsthat provides a healthy snacking option for all weight watchers. This snack goes down well with the cup ofteaanddrinksalike. Having said that there arelotsof similar options available in the market and this mix only adds to that range without providing anythingadditionalor more exciting foraconsumer.
