Versatile Sandwich Thins enter the sandwich-making world

By Allen Pierleoni

What's the newest star in the universe of sandwich-making? Could be Sandwich Thins from Arnold and Oroweat, in nine-grain and whole wheat flax and fiber varieties. Check it: 100 calories per roll, no artificial anything. A bag of eight rolls goes for $3.29 at area supermarkets.

We experimented with a couple of bags of the rolls and found they make good substitutes for English muffins, they toast up nicely, add interest to grilled-cheese sandwiches, and hold up to juice-oozing burgers and piles of condiments. Plus, they're full of fiber and flavor.

We handed out a batch for an informal tasting. Comments included these:

- These bread rounds have a good, dense texture with a nutty flavor. I like making sandwiches with them because the ratio of condiments to bread is high. Even a single piece of Swiss cheese with a dab of mayo and mustard didn't get lost. Two thumbs up.

- I loved the sweet flavor and the bonus of all that fiber. I stacked mine with rare roast beef and cheese, lettuce, onion, tomato and horseradish. Yum!

- For breakfast, I toasted mine, smeared on blueberry preserves and put it on a plate with scrambled eggs and country sausage. It was quite satisfying.
