Dr. Kracker Giveaway !!!

I've heard about Dr. Kracker from my friends.  They say it's the crunchiest cracker around....never soggy .... and great with your favorite dips.  Well, I just got to try it!!!  Here's what I can say: IT'S TRUE....the crackers and flatbreads are super crunchy, loaded with seeds galore and they come in a whole variety of flavors...sweet apple crisps, pumpkin cheddar, fire-roasted crisps....and more.  And these European-style artisanal crackers are so healthy too...with lots of grains and seeds-----organically grown wheat, spelt, oats,  bran and flaxseed for texture and crunch.

Personally, the flat breads are my favorite---they were absolutely fantastic!  See the  pumpkin seeds and cheddar cheese in the photos above? They load their crackers and flat breads with all varieties of seeds.  One day I brought Cherry Semolina and Hummus Maximus crackers  to coffee klatch but I did not bring a dip and my friends (I just love their honesty) said they think the crackers needed a dip to go with it.  I think so too.  The crackers are neutral and so crunchy and sturdy--- the type that are best with warm spinach artichoke dip, hummus, caramelized onion and gorgonzola mushroom dip!

I wanted to test how sturdy they really were so before coming to work I loaded the Pumpkin Cheddar Flat Breads with strawberries, kiwi, cheese, fresh tomatoes and chipotle shredded beef.  Four hours later, I took them out of my lunch box and to my surprise..... they were amazingly crunchy!!! The middle part (where I laid the cheese and tomatoes) were a little soft BUT not soggy at all.  I hate it when flat breads "wilt"  but Dr. Kracker Pumpkin Cheddar flatbreads did not wilt--- they were still very crunchy. I think they are perfect party appetizers ---they keep their shape and stay delicious at room temp for hours.

Would you like to try them yourself?  Dr. Kracker is giving away 2 prizes to my readers, each prize has four Dr. Kracker Flavors.  To enter the giveaway, please follow carefully the instructions below:
1. Choose which four flavors you wish to try from their Flavors page AND tell me your choices on the comment section
2.  If you want an additional entry to the giveaway, answer this trivia question (the answer can be found here): 
"Where in Europe did these flat breads and crackers originate and who brought them here to the U.S.?"
I will randomly pick winners on June 1, 2010.  Again, if you don't have a blog and prefer to keep your email private, email me (momgateway@gmail.com) with your comment (4 flavors) and answer to the trivia question.  Good luck to all!

I have bought Dr Kraker crackers in Dallas at the Whole Foods Market and liked them; however, to be honest I found them too hard (or maybe my teeth are too soft) but the taste is great and I liked the Cheddar ones the best;

I just wanted to say thanks for visiting my blog today and leaving a comment. I hope your giveaway here does very well, we sometimes offer these as well. Sadly since I doubt they have chocolate flavor I don't think it's fair for me to participate.

Esra said...

Perfect timing, I have been looking for good quality crackers for dips and chunky salads. I never tried these. I would certainly like to try all of them but certainly the following:

- Klassic 3 seed
- Seeder Spelt

By the way answer to your question is Germany:-) and brought to US by by George Eckrich, Carsten Kruse, and Dr. Klaus Karg.
