Lightly-baked, crunchy rye bread in small format. This classic type of rye bread spicing forms the basis of our 'Vitality Bread' philosophy, and these nibbles are actually all the rage with the young and the young at heart alike. The obvious reason for the success of these Mediterranean tidbits is that they are equally suited as nibbles or as a side dish.
All Fritz & Felix products are characterized by a combination of crunchiness and tenderness. But the undisputed champions within this category are the Family Happys with olive oil.
