There's a new sandwich cracker hitting the shelves right now. They're called Cracker Creations and they're made by the snackmeisters at Lance. Lance calls them "premium seasoned sandwich crackers," and that's as good a description as any, because they are pretty amazing.
There are two flavors, Garden Vegetable and Parmesan Herb. Lance has baked the veggies, herbs, and cheese right into the crackers and put them together with real cream cheese filling. They sent a box of each variety to me for review, and when the packages got here I opened them up and left them on the dining room table for the family to enjoy.
Garden Vegetable - Delicious, savory crackers with tomatoes, bell peppers, and onions in the mix, balancing beautifully with the cream cheese filling. Lynnafred remarked that it was one of the best-tasting crackers she'd ever had, and Maryanne said that they were perfect for taking the hungry edge off of the afternoon at work.
Parmesan Herb - Buttery and yet sharp, the Parmesan Herb flavor was every bit as good as the Garden Vegetable and won high praise from everyone. "These are completely NOMMable," Lynnafred said.
Although they're marketed as a snack, I can tell you first-hand that they are awesome with a bowl of tomato soup on a chilly evening.
Other information you may find useful: they've got 0 grams of trans fat, no preservatives, and they are not made with any high-fructose corn syrup. (My special thanks to Lance for that.) The info that Lance sent along with our samples said that they'll be available at major supermarkets and Walmart, and I've been keeping my eye open for them. They are definitely on the list of Stuff To Buy More Of. (If you are an English major, you may place it upon your list of Stuff Of Which To Buy More.)
Go over to the Cracker Creations website - they will be offering a $1 off coupon soon, and you can get more info about the crackers there.
