    I'm having a look in my local M&S later today, have resorted to asking my old ladies (when doing their hair) if they know where I can get hold of them - gosh I am stooping so low interrogating them:hilarious:

    I think that M&S Sesame & Linseed Wholegrain Flat Breads containing 5.2 grams of carbs per flat bread taste much nicer.

    i
    They all taste good of course but I think the difference for these ones is that the entire pack has under 5 carbs in total. I know your 5 carbs a cracker isn't decadent but when people are counting every carb, it makes a difference, 4 of yours would be 20 carbs whereas 14 ish of these ones is around 4 carbs. I can eat a whole pack (!) without any insulin at all and barely a nudge on my libre. I think this thread is more about the very low carb value. :)

    Do the flatbreads really only weigh 17.5g, that's half the weight of the tiny LivLife bread slices?

    They are more like a large seeded cracker but not as “seedy” as the little round ones - they are a bit bigger than a rivita and you can break them in two - they are quite substantial and filling and are taste great with avocado and sliced egg.

    One flat bread at a time is more than enough. Four would really be over the top! For breakfast I very often have two lightly boiled eggs and one flatbread spread with a good butter, and I enjoy every mouthful.

    Found some seed crackers in my small town M&S (Derbyshire) today. There were not many packets left on the shelf so l don’t know if that is it, or if there will be any more!

    So near & yet so far
    Been to M&S in Skegness this morning & found shelf label for these & they’ve been reduced to 80 pence
    Unfortunately the shelf was bare & they’re not having any more
    Had anybody made anything similar?

    9h no, doubly annoying. They seem to come in and out of stock at random.
    Anyone know how we can produce a massed plea to M&S. It must be a profitable, on going line for them there are so many diabetes/keto/ low carb people everywhere now

    Say what???? It's only November, in my household (by which I mean me), I doubt if they'd last until the weekend! :)

    I actually called M&S customer service yesterday. I said that folk all over the UK were attempting to hunt them down, but she couldn't say if they will be continued or not, as, it's not something they know. o_O:meh:
