I HAVE FOUND THE SECRET TO GUILT-FREE SNACKING!
I’m a bit bummed that I couldn’t think of a better one-liner than that. I mean, I did build it up a bit with the Google search engine declaration, right?
My apologies. I’ll do better next time.
Maximum yumness. My official (and totally dictionary worthy) professional opinion.
You should be grateful that I’ve removed my hand from the bag long enough to even write this review.
And I’m not just spruiking the awesomeness of this product because I got it for free. I've since purchased a number of bags for
myself the kids. Table of Plenty Mini Rice Cakes really are scrumptious.

Table of Plenty rice cakes are also versatile.

They also make for
excellent public humiliation at crowded parks engaging childhood entertainment. Eat your heart out Wiggles, with your multiple characters, and Hi5 with your ever-changing cast. All it took me was two dark chocolate mini rice cakes for eyes.
Table of Plenty Mini Rice Cakes are a new product that combines the much loved snack-time treat that is the rice cake, with a smooth and creamy topping. All conveniently sized to pop in your mouth in one go - before the kids even realise you're eating something and they start demanding some, thereby requiring you to share.
As a parent, it’s a guilt-free snack alternative. There’s only so many times you can lamely shove an apple at your kid and tell them “that’s it!”. My kids are all about the chocolate. Chocolate, lollies, and potato chips.
While I rarely ever give in, it means I waste a lot of money on healthy snack items that I’m hoping to tempt them with in lieu of the salty, fatty, sugar-filled treats they want.
To be honest, I wasn’t holding out too much hope of the kids eating these. While they are partial to rice cakes, it is always when smothered in butter and Vegemite or topped with cheese. And since all of my kids are more savoury than sweet (taste-wise…not in demeanour, ho ho), I wasn’t entirely convinced they would take to these.
Take to them they did. I had Mstr2 screeching in his best whiny voice “Mooooorrrrrrreeeeee Mummy!” while Miss2 seized the opportunity to swipe the half a cracker he had remaining (because he’s prone to whining at any given time, the fact that he still had half a cracker left didn’t deter him from demanding mooooorrrrrreeeee).
Cue his fist delving into her mouth to try and fish it back out. A very brave move on his part, considering she consumes EVERYTHING that finds its way into her mouth. Edible or otherwise.
Miss5 was like a seagull lurking in the background, snapping up any casualties of the rice cracker war, as soon as they hit the ground.
Hubby also loved these. But that is to be expected, since he loves every food product except Brussels sprouts. He's the one who normally gets lumped with the varied and pricey healthy treats that the kids shun. So he was kinda expecting more of these, but since they weren't rejected, I had to dispatch him to the shops post haste to purchase more for
me himself the pantry school lunch supplies.
What a relief to have a snack food my kids enjoy, that is also preservative, colour, flavouring and gluten free. Essentially, crap-free.

But don’t just take my word for it….

Mine would have to be cat biscuits. According to #1 Nana, I religiously snuck into the laundry to eat the cat biscuits each morning, before the poor cat came in and got a chance to eat them.
On a totally unrelated note, my Miss2 loves cat biscuits. No idea where she got that from?
