This new line of Energy Five Grain Cakes is available in three flavors; plain, brown sugar & cinnamon and banana. I bought the plain and brown sugar & cinnamon ones to try. I am not a fan of banana flavor; I only enjoy the taste of banana when I am eating a fresh banana.
I actually enjoined both of the packs of this Energy snack I got. They were crispy and fresh and I liked the bite-sizes pieces. I’d say each piece was roughly the size of a 10 agorot coin. The plain one was ever so slightly salty but not too salty on the same note the brown sugar & cinnamon one was sweet but not overly sweet. I thought Energy did a good job flavoring the 5 grain cakes.
Both the salty one and the sweet one would make a good, fairly healthy, snack each 25 gram bag is 99 calories. They have no preservatives or food coloring, and since they are made of whole flours they have 1.6 or 1.7 grams of fiber per bag.
My one big issue with these Energy 5 Grain Bite-Size Cakes is the price. I think 4.85 for a 25 gram bag is very overpriced, given that a 40-60 gram bag of flavored mini rice cakes can be found for 5-6-7 NIS. I think 4.85 NIS for a 25 gram bag is ridiculously overpriced.
Bottom Line: I liked the taste, flavor and texture of these Energy 5 Grain Bite-Size Cakes. I think they would make a nice snack on the go whether you want something salty or sweet, but in my opinion they are overpriced and I would only buy them again if I found them cheaper.
According to the press release I read, along with these bite-size cakes they also released an Energy Mini Rice Cake with 60% Dark Chocolate on one side, but I have yet to find that in the supermarket. If I see it I may give it a try and report back.
