Are your mornings rushed and you sometimes forget to grab a cup of coffee nevertheless something to eat? Check out our SnackWell's Biscuit Thins review to see how you can have the best of both worlds.
Update 2019: From what I can tell it, unfortunately, looks like the SnackWell's Biscuit Thins have been discontinued. However, I have found a good alternative to be Belvita breakfast biscuits.
They don't contain the coffee flavors like the SnackWell's, but I honestly think they taste better overall. The Cinnamon Brown Sugar Belvita is my favorite.
As I've shared many times, I'm just not a morning person. At all. Not even a little bit.
With that said, I often start the day with coffee or tea but take so long to really wake up that I don't even feel like brewing a pot of coffee.
That's why I thought SnackWell's Biscuit Thins were pretty clever because you can eat your coffee...which is probably good for me, too, because I often skip breakfast.
I remember the SnackWell's brand really catching on in the 90's when everyone was trying to eat better. As such, I was really curious to review the SnackWell's Biscuit Thins to see if they were any good.

SnackWell's Biscuit Thins Review
I'll admit that I'm not a morning person. I'm so glad we live in the days of smartphones and laptops so I can work from bed for an hour or so while I go through the process of waking up.
While I love the zip of coffee first thing in the morning, a lot of times I don't have the time to make a cup, nevertheless to get something together to eat.
So, I thought that the SnackWell's Biscuits Thins were such a clever food product. While I really love both chocolate and vanilla flavors, the caramel macchiato just barely won out to be my favorite flavor.
The flavor of the biscuits are rather good and I definitely find that the coffee flavor really stands out, which I don't consider to be a bad thing. They are on the very crisp side, but not so hard that you have trouble biting them nor feel like you're going to break a tooth doing so.
I also like that they are on the thin side so that you have 4 biscuits to eat so it feels like you are eating more (or can share). I did find the biscuits to be a bit on the dry side so I do recommend having something to drink with them.
One of my favorite parts of the biscuit thins is that each biscuit has an inspirational word imprinted on it to help keep you motivated throughout the day.
Here are some of my favorite ways to use SnackWell's Biscuit Thins
