Fortunately, there are a few varieties that have livened the boring rice cake up a bit, while still remaining relatively low in calories. And if you’re the kind of person who likes their snacks to be free of everything (well, nearly everything), as well as organic, then you might like these rice cakes from Nature's Store.
Nature's Store Organic & Gluten Free Mini Rice Cakes are covered with rice chocolate. They're gluten free, wheat free, lactose free and GM free. So what is in them?
Packs are 40g in weight and hold 10 mini rice cakes, each worth 17 calories.
Eating the entire pack in one go isn’t too bad, with 177 calories for the whole bag. But I like to keep my snacks to around 100 calories, so half a pack at a time suits me.
A note on the pack:
I found these in Tesco and they’re also available at Ocado online.‘These Nature’s Store Rice Cakes are made using organic rice grown in the paddy fields of Italy. To add a touch of indulgence we have lightly covered them in a chocolate flavoured coating made with creamy organic rice drink and the finest organic cocoa adding a unique delicious twist.’
