Where to buy flatbread thins in NI

    Hi Ita,
    We used folded flatbread thins, depending on the brand, they are also called folded flatbreads. You should be able to find them in most major supermarkets in NI. Hope this helps and thanks for getting in touch with your question.

    Hi Sarah,
    The flatbreads we used were called folded flatbread thins but are also known as folded flatbreads, different brands just have a slightly different name for them. They can be found in most of the large supermarkets. Hope this helps. Thanks for your question and hope you enjoy making these.
