Review - Nonni's Biscotti and Old London Snacks

Nonni's and Old London Snacks
I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but I do like my snacks. After being on Nutrisystem I now take a close look at calories and am not crazy enough to eat more than 150-calorie snacks. So naturally I was wondering what snacks I’d be able to take with me on the plane that wouldn’t go over my limit. Thankfully I was sent several snacks to try from Old London and Nonni's, which uses the original family recipe including real eggs, butter and gourmet bittersweet chocolate. Yum!

I received Old London’s Melba Toast Sesame, Melba Snacks Toasted Garlic and Bagel Chips Spicy Cheddar. Old London has many recopies on their site and I decided to try the Chinese Chicken on the Sesame Melba Toast and it was great! I couldn't think of a way to make them so I'm glad I now have that recipe. The Spicy Cheddar Bagel Chips were wonderful by itself. They aren't really spicy but have a great smoky cheddar taste. The Toasted Garlic Melba Snacks were wonderful with some fat-free cream cheese. These snack were great and all are fairly low-calories, the Melba Snacks were a mere 60 calories per serving (4).

Nonni's Biscotti
I also received Nonni’s Biscotti in Decadence and Turtle Pecan and Biscotti Bites in Almond Dark Chocolate and Classic Almond. The Biscotti in Turtle Pecan and Biscotti Bites in Almond Dark Chocolate were my absolute favorite. The consistency of the biscotti is wonderful, it has crunch but wasn't too hard to chew. Both varieties have the bottoms dipped in chocolate. The caramel bites in the Turtle Pecan is a wonderful chewy and sweet treat. Biscotti Decadence is the perfect companion with a cup of coffee in the morning, or iced coffee drink in my case. I found the Classic Almond Bites to be quite plain but love the other 3 biscotti products. Biscotti Decadence and Turtle Pecan are only 100 calories per biscotti and individually wrapped so I've taken them in my bag for a fast snack.

Old London Products include Snacks, Toast, JJFlats Flatbreads and Bagel Chips in many different varieties. Nonni's Products include Biscotti and Biscotti Bites in many varieties. A huge thanks to both for the opportunity to review their great snacks! These will definitely be coming with my on my carry-on for my trip this December! They are delicious and very light snacks for on-the-go eating.
