The pros: If you are a fan of Arnold's Sandwich Thins, Trader Joe's Multi Grain Slims is pretty darn similar. High fiber and only 100 calories.
The cons: High fiber, so if you aren't used to much fiber in your diet these might be a shock to your system.
The verdict: For $2.49 this is a tasty sandwich bread. Since it's 20% of your daily recommended amount of fiber, it doesn't taste gritty or grainy. You'll get some rolled oats on the top, but they add a nice texture to this. This is a good way to cut down the amount of carbs you are getting from bread as many sandwich slices can have just as many calories in just one slice.
They are thin, but serve the purpose of holding a sandwich together and keeping the overall calorie count down. I enjoy the Arnold's Sandwich Thins, but these slims are just fine as a substitute.

Would I buy this again? Yes. I like Arnold's Sandwich Thins, but I wouldn't be willing to make a separate trip to another grocery store. Trader Joe's Multi Grain Slims are darn close and I'd buy these in place of Arnold's because I do most of my shopping at Trader Joe's.
