European crackers.

Where can I find one of these crackers?

Preferably somewhere in the East Bay, but really anywhere.

I tried Cost Plus, and Trader Joes. They don't have them.

  1. Have you tried Amazon? They have an amazing selection of international foods.

    Lu (the Belgian biscuit manufacturer) also makes a Petit Beurre that might be available in your local supermarket - they have pretty wide US distribution (usually in the imported foods aisle rather than the cookie aisle)

      Thanks, I now found some of them on Amazon. I'm hoping to find them at a grocery store, though, because I have to either buy a lot on Amazon, or pay a lot of shipping.

    2. Cost Plus World Market has import items like this, though I don't recall these in particular.

      Large Asian groceries (e.g. 99Ranch) may have something similar, either from Europe, or an Asian copy.

        I called Cost Plus, but they didn't have any of the above items.

        I'll try 99 Ranch.

      2. Maybe Euromix on Piedmont.

        Berkeley Bowl has some fairly obscure imported crackers, though they're kind of scattered around the store oddly.

          I'll try Euromix.

          It's conveniently located next to Dopo too (from the pizza thread).

        2. Not the brand you are looking for but Kedem Tea biscuits found in the kosher aisle of most major supermarkets look very similar. You use the word crackers, so I'm not sure if the ones you are looking for are sweet. Kedem are considered sweet but definitely very mild. Like I said, not what you are looking for, but may work as a replacement.

          1. Berkeley Bowl east has Liebniz butter biscuits.
