New Foods I’m Loving: Nut Thins

Full Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Nut Thins. I was given Nut Thins to try as part of the Blue Diamond Almond tastemakers program. I am not being compensated for this post, and the opinions are completely my own.

Being at home for most meals most days is good in many ways, but can also get a bit monotonous.  Lunches especially I almost always eat at home right now, since I am home with the baby most days.  Enter: Blue Diamond Nut Thins. I have wanted to try these for a while, so I was glad that I got a chance through their Tastemakers program.

I first tried them plain, just to see what they tasted like.  I didn’t love how they tasted plain, but they were not bad.  They tasted pretty plain, kind of like rice cakes, so I knew I needed something to spread on them or dip them in.  Enter: snack plates.  My friend Heather, is a big fan of snack plates as meals (and snacks), so I thought I would try the idea as well.

I am now a big fan of snack plates.  My plates are probably lacking some protein, but overall they are still more protein than I normally have in a snack.  My current snack plates usually consist of Nut Thins, fruit, and a spreadable cheese.

The Nut Thins that I was sent were the original flavor, but I noticed when I was at the grocery store last weekend that there are a lot of other flavors! I want to try the Hint of Salt, Cheddar Cheese, and Asiago Cheese varieties as well.

Anyone have any ideas for fun ways of snacking with these crackers?  Dips for them, or things to eat them with?

  1. Is it weird that I’d want to make a sandwich out of the nut thins, cheese, and sliced strawberries? Because I’m totally doing that! 😀
