Wasa Crispbread: The Perfect Blank Canvas For Snacks

When you live in a household full of athletes and busy people who are always in and out, one of the greatest challenges is keeping everyone fueled. Yes, we have meals that we enjoy, but often it is the in-between times that are the biggest challenge; not to mention the “stop ins”. You know when a friend just stops by to say hi and ends up staying for tea and then of course, you need a little snack. Wasa Crispbread to the rescue…

Finding the blank canvas to build the perfect snack morning, noon, after school, or at night is easy since we added Wasa Crispbread to our pantry. Not only does it work into our busy daily lives, but it’s perfect for packing up and going. The sturdy crisp makes them easy to eat on the run, pack for a road trip or in your bag for your next great adventure, or to put in the kids’ backpacks.

Disclosure:  We are so excited to partner with Barilla and Acorn Influencers to showcase Wasa Crispbread. Wasa has been a staple in our home for many years. Although we are being paid for this post, all opinions, thoughts, and recipes are our own, as always. 

There are a few things to know about using the Wasa Crispbread… 

  • There are several varieties to choose from. We enjoy the Multi Grain and Rye the best. You can use the Ibotta for a great offer from Barilla. 
  • The Wasa Crispbread is certified Non-GMO and 100% whole grain. For my athletes – I have a triathlete, an NCAA Diver, and a professional dancer, it is so important that each one, which is a serving, contains 12 grams of whole grains and only 45 calories.
  • How to eat Wasa is only limited by your imagination. Pretty much anything you like can be used as a topping or you can just eat them right out of the package!
  • In less than two years, our beloved Wasa Crispbread will be 100 years old! Hands up if you grew up with them and have them in your pantry.
  • One more thing to remember about the Barilla family – their Barilla Gluten Free Penne pasta was recognized as one of Parents magazine’s 25 Best Allergy-Friendly Packaged Foods. What a nice recognition!

We wanted to share a few of our favorite Wasa Crispbread snacks with you. You can use ours, create your own with your favorite toppers, or go to Wasa for additional ideas. Oh, and don’t forget to check out Pinterest for some amazing inspiration. We look at layering our snack like this…Wasa Crispbread + veggies + protein = best friends forever, plus a whole lot of real food goodness to keep us fueled.
