    I want to find some crispbreads that are quite thin and I can have quite a few of. I dont really use crispbread and have only really tried Ryvita before but am I right there are some you can have 4, 5, 6 of as a HEXB? What are your favourites? I want to get some so I can have another go with my broad bean hummus and some other stuff. Thanks lovelies x :)

    The Finn crisp with 5 wholegrains are really thin and crispy, one of my favourites.
    The Ryvita crackerbread are also good, and are very light and puffy.

    Mmm I think I might have a go at the Finn ones then. And the Ryvita you can have six of. Normal Ryvita are a bit thick for me, Id rather have something thinner that I can have more of and actually taste the stuff on top! Thanks for the info x :)

    If it's thin then definately the finn crisp, because the ryvita wholegrain crackerbread are as thick as normal ryvita, but lighter and airier.

    Crackerbreads have a similar sort of texture to rice cakes.

    Oh do they? Im not a fan of rice cakes really :( Well Ill still have a go at the Finn thing anyway. I used to quite like that stuff that I think was just called 'Crackerbread' years ago, I didnt think it was like the ruce cakes Ive had which i find so dry they just bung my mouth up and drench all the liquid out of my tongue :eek: :D

    How about making some melba toast?

    Toast 2 small slices of wholemeal bread (hexB). Slice through the toast to make 4 full sized thin pieces and toast the untoasted side. You end up with 4 very thin pieces of toast. Cut into triangles. Not described very well. Hopefully you're psychic.

    Heh heh :D Ah I only have WW bread in which would be impossible to cut in half again as it is already the thickness of a leaf or something :( So it'd be just, er toast again for me, which I have every morning for brekkie. Thanks for the idea tho :)

    Your not missing that much- it's in my tesco both as a slab , grated and spread. To be honest though most low fat cheese is just as nice

    I dont like most low fat cheese for cooking - it doesnt melt properly, just goes crispy and brown on the outside and gloopy on the inside. I heard Low Low doesnt do this and melts properly?

    It does melt yes - I'm gonna need to research this then as I'm sure cathedral lighter does too. But maybe not.
