Try it Tuesday.....Arnold Select Sandwich Thins

Can you say, DELISH?! Arnold Select Sandwich Thins are superb!

I didn't even know they existed until I saw my friend Holly in the store with some in her cart. See what I get for going off Weight Watchers? I'm sure I would have tried them by now if I were sticking to the plan.

Anyway, these artisan bread thins are super high in fiber (5 grams) and have only 110 calories and 1 gram of fat. Whoopeee! 1 WW pt! They also have NO trans fat and NO high fructose corn syrup. They are also cholesterol free. Nice.

They come in these flavors:


-100% Whole Wheat

-Whole Grain White


-Seedless Rye

ALL of the varieties have the same amount of fiber, fat and calories. I love this. Sometimes I get sick of eating the same thing. It would be nice to eat white once in awhile while getting the same amount of fiber as whole wheat.

I have tried the Whole Grain White and the Multi-Grain. They are both fabulous. Wal-mart sells them for $2.67 and Meijer for $3.19. I can't wait to try the rye!

Sometimes breads that are high in fiber taste like cardboard.

Not these!

They taste great. Yes, they are thin, but they are perfect for a sandwich. A big plus, I might add, is that they are PRE-SLICED! It makes it so much better in my opinion. Nothing like fighting with an english muffin or bagel when it has to be sliced. That gets on my nerves. The Arnolds sandwich thins are good to go! Easily taken apart.

My favorite way to eat these is with some roasted deli chicken, provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato and some Laughing Cow light swiss cheese. And of course I toast the whole thing. Mmm.. Oh and by the way, if you haven't tried Laughing Cow Light Swiss (a spreadable cheese), then you need to git ur fanny to the nearest grocery store deli and grab some!

I also like these sandwich thins for breakfast. Scramble up some Egg Beaters and the Laughing Cow cheese on the sandwich thin and I'm good to go! I also like to add some bacon when the mood strikes.

There are so many lunch/breakfast possibilities for these thins that I get excited just thinking about it. I bet kids would like to have 2 mini pizzas for an after-school snack!
I even saw a photo (on google images) of one piled high with chocolate chips! Umm..I don't think I'll be trying that any time soon.

What else can I say about these? Just that I wish I had found them sooner. Now all I need is my own panini maker instead of heating up the oven for my lunch!

P.S...I wonder if Arnold Sandwich Thins are the same as Pepperidge Farms Deli Rounds? They seem to be about the same in calories, fat and fiber, but which tastes better? I better find out!

If you buy them at Wal-mart, they are $2.67, Meijer are $3.19. I don't know about Plumbs. They might not even offer them there.

What do your kids think? My kids only want white, smushy bread.

Caity said...

I don't know how many times I thought I'd buy these but chicken out! So good to know! Thanks for the awesome Try it Tuesday!

Leanne said...

Actually, my kids have not tried these that I know of. I think they probably feel like it's a "Mom" bread. I'll see if I can get them to try it sometime.

Rick likes it though. So even if the kids don't, atleast he and I can share it.

My kids love them, especially the white bread. They are also good hamburger (turkey or boca burger) buns. Also good to make garlic bread with them- spread on Brummel & Brown and some garlic salt. I eat them like rolls at dinner time too. Really love a 1 point bread that taste good and is hearty!!

I haven't tried them yet but saw that Costco also carries them in bigger bags. They are "Orowheat" brand here instead of "Arnold" brand but the same logo. I'm glad to hear they are good. I'm heading to Costco tomorrow so I'll pick some up. It will be a nice change of pace for lunches.
