Now, I know, you must be a die hard sauerkraut fan to even try canned sauerkraut. I am a fan and when I spotted a can of Libby’s Crispy Sauerkraut, I was tempted. I decided to purchase this product, try it out and write an unbiased product review all about my experience with it. Here is what I discovered!
The words “Crispy” jumped out at me. I like crispy sauerkraut and that gave me the courage to try this product. I also have many recipes that use sauerkraut in them. One of my favorites is a sausage and sauerkraut recipe. This product seemed perfect for it. Libby’s Crispy Sauerkraut advertises that it has barrel fresh goodness. Hey, that sounded great to me. I could not wait to try it!
I purchased a can of Libby’s Crispy Sauerkraut for only one dollar. Since this can has many servings in it, that was a great deal! I use sauerkraut on hot dogs, with sausages, ham and many other meats. This sour and tasty treat really brings out the flavor in meat. In turn, the meat compliments the sour and tangy taste. Like I said, you have to be a sauerkraut fan to truly appreciate the unusual taste. My mother made sure that her kids tried all dishes and she loves sauerkraut. Hence, I grew up loving it on hot dogs and sausages. I also love it mixed with ham.
Libby’s Crispy Sauerkraut is perfect for microwave cooking and that is how I chose to prepare it. I only had to pour the contents into a microwave safe bowl, cover and heat on high for a few minutes. I then added it to my already prepared sausages. My mom joined me and we dug in. We loved it. This sauerkraut is quite pungent and sour. It is also crispy. Fresh tasting. All of those are compliments. We both thought it was great, especially for canned sauerkraut. It went fabulously with the sausage. Yummy.
I rate Libby’s Crispy Sauerkraut four stars out of five stars. I have had better sauerkraut but, this was very good. It is also easy to prepare. I will be buying it again. One can goes a long way. One serving has only 5 calories in it. 0 of those calories are from fat.

I enjoyed trying Libby’s Crispy Sauerkraut and writing a product review about it. It is a great cholesterol free cabbage side dish to serve and it goes well with many types of meat.
