I've been on a cracker kick lately. I guess due to all the house guests we've had and all the traveling we've been doing this summer. I've had some new discoveries lately also. Here are some of my faves:
-Nut Thins by Blue Diamond. I like the hazelnut ones and also the pecan crackers. They are so light and crispy. Great with some manchego and salumi.
-Milton's corn bread crackers. These are buttery, salty and with a slight sweetness. I kept eating them and thinking "what do they taste like?" And then I realized - they taste just like club crackers. I want to try the multi-grain ones next.
-Trader Joe's Gorgonzola crackers. I can't eat too many, but they are tasty.
-Black pepper water crackers. My old standby. They go with everything.
-Whole Foods rice crackers. I love to sear a piece of tuna and slice it and put it on these crackers with a splash of soy sauce, a small dollop of wasabi and a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds. It's such an easy app that's light and easy to throw together.
-Graham crackers. They've been my lifesaver for many years. I eat them with peanut butter to treat low blood sugars. They are a major comfort food for me. :)
-Oh, and I should mention Rice Crisps Sea Salt flavor. While not technically a cracker, I do love them.
What are your favorite crackers? Any oddball varieties? How do you eat them?
My current favorites are Triscuit Hint of Salt and Ryvita Rye & Oat Bran...the triscuits are dense, the Ryvita much lighter...some would say cardboard-like, snerk...funny though, when my son was visiting in May, he tried the Ryvita with goat cheese and really loved it...asked me to ship him 2 boxes as their grocery store doesn't sell it. lynnlato, I do love rice crackers too, though!
I get them at Publix, so you could probably find them at your major grocer's store...HOWEVER, at Publix, they don't sell these in cracker aisle...they're sold near the peanut butter & jelly with other "healthier" crackers like Wasa and European style crackers if this helps--the box actually says Ryvita Crispbread.
I don't know what they're called, but i love the multi-seeded kind, they come in a long package, clear cellophane, very thin, flatbreads. love the way the multi-seeds go with everything!
I love crackers, and all kinds! I cannot pick a favorite.
Wheat thins, cheez-its, rye-flavored melba toast, regular and black pepper water crackers, TJ's pita bite crackers, oyster crackers. Stoned wheat thins (not to be confused with the regular wheat things, and yes, that is kind of a sketchy name, isn't it?). For certain things only ritz crackers will do though I don't like them to eat alone. Also like pilot bread crackers for certain things.
Unusual varieties--Ak-mak, which is high in fiber and is great with hummus. Also Kavli crispbread, a favorite of my Norwegian dad and it has rubbed off on me.
