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.
