My wife and I sat down to watch the new episode of Bones last night (we recorded it and watched it after the kids went to bed). Normally, when we watch TV together, we pop a bag of popcorn. Instead, she decided she wanted to make herself some cheese and crackers as a snack.
I’m not a big fan of the cheese she was using so, when she offered me some, I turned her down. However, I noticed the crackers looked different from regular snack crackers. That’s when she told me they were Food Club Roasted Vegetable Snack Crackers.
I have seen similar products at the store but was never really all that interested in them; mostly because they were quite a bit more expensive than regular snack crackers. However, she told me this brand was as affordable as any other cracker so, out of curiosity, I ended up going into the kitchen and grabbing a couple of them to try.
To be honest, when I grabbed these, I really wasn’t expecting too much from them. Mostly because of the price, I was expecting the crackers to taste exactly like regular snack crackers and didn’t think I would even taste the vegetable part of them. That’s because I have purchased several other cheaper brands that were supposedly offering vegetable crackers too only to be disappointed.
However, after trying these, I do feel they are as good as advertised; maybe even better.
I never read the ingredients on the box and can’t tell you exactly what vegetables where in the crackers. But, when I bit into those first couple, I could taste something different about them. The flavor is a bit hard to describe; especially without knowing what vegetables I was eating as part of the cracker. But, if you were to mix these in a bowl of regular snack crackers, there is no way you wouldn’t be able to tell them apart.
I especially loved the fact the crackers really had a roasted taste to them. In the past, when I have bought cheaper brands, all I got from them was a salty taste. This was a nice change of pace.
In fact, I liked the crackers so much, I ended up going back to the kitchen to get some more and swiped another one before bed.
If you are looking for a snack cracker that doesn’t cost too much and offers something a bit different from regular snack crackers, I would recommend these.
