I had to swing by the grocery store this morning to pick up cat food and a couple other non perishable items for our house before work. I didn’t get an opportunity to eat all that much for breakfast this morning and ran out of snacks in my desk so I stopped off in their discount aisle to look for something. I ended up buying a box of Busy Baker Cheddar Cheese Baked Snack Crackers.
This isn’t the first time I have purchased something from the Busy Baker brand. I have had some of their other snack cracker varieties in the past and thought they were excellent; especially since they only cost me about $1.
I don’t like the Cheddar Cheese variety quite as much as I do some of their other varieties. But, overall, it is pretty decent and well worth the money.
First of all, these crackers are very fresh. I wanted to make a point to mention that first because I have purchased way too many discounted crackers in the past only to discover they were either stale or very close to being stale. These crackers don’t taste like they came out of the oven yesterday but they are as fresh as any of the more expensive brands that are out there.
They are also very filling. I had only about five or six of them this morning and was more than satisfied. Also, unlike many other bargain brands, the Busy Baker brand didn’t skimp on the quantity of crackers. The box had quite a few inside it; many more than I would expect from something costing me $1.
Taste wise, I would compare this product to a more popular item; Cheez-it crackers. In fact, if you were to mix this brand into a bowl with the more expensive brand, I know you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the two crackers. However, much like the Cheez-it crackers, the cheese coating does seem to have a bit too much salt in it; which is why I don’t like this variety as much as the others from this brand. But, since I know my daughter would enjoy them, I’ll probably take the rest home to her.
If you are looking for a snack cracker but don’t want to pay too much for them, I would recommend purchasing this brand; especially if you like the more expensive Cheez-it brand.
