With the general trend of cutting down on carbs, the new Arnold Sandwich Thins may be the perfect solution for those who do not want to give up using bread in their diets completely. In addition to being thinner, this bread is low fat, cholesterol free, made of whole grains, has 0g Trans Fat, and contains no high fructose corn syrup.
Out of the four varieties available, we tried the Multi Grain Sandwich Thins. So now the big question is . . . how did it taste?
What I thought about Arnold Sandwich Thins:
1) I was skeptical at first because this bread is pretty thin. It is thicker than pita bread, but still has some of the fluffiness inside of regular sandwich bread.
2) I am the kind of person who likes to taste the actual food, so it makes sense to me to have less bread, so I can taste more of the contents of a sandwich. Both my family and I very much enjoyed trying this bread with hamburgers.
3) I found that Arnold Sandwich Thins are a good alternative to English Muffins. They toast up nicely and are not as hard, making them easier for children to eat. We even tried making simple thin crust pizzas with them. Those turned out to be a quick healthy meal that pleased the children very much.
5) I'm not sure what the exact shelf life is for this bread, but I think you should expect it to last less than one week, so I don't receommend that you buy more than you will use over a period of 5 or 6 days.
As an adult I truly enjoyed this product. I think my children may have missed squishing the thicker bread between their fingers, but that is something from which they recovered quickly because the bread was quite tasty.
