Lance's Four Cheese Captain's Wafers

A mysterious box landed on my porch the other day, addressed to "Dave's Cupboard."  I had a mirror for my truck backordered, but the box was too small and besides, when I order auto parts I don't do it under the blog's name.  Lynnafred could barely hold out from opening it until I got home from work, but she did, and it turned out to be well worth the wait.

Inside the box were a couple of packages of Lance's new Four Cheese Captain's Wafers crackers, along with a note asking us to try out the crackers and tell everyone what we thought of them.

Right now, you might be thinking, "Wow, cheese and crackers. How can I stand the excitement?"  Trust me, these are different.  Lance has taken a really good, really flavorful blend of cheeses (cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, and blue) and put them between flaky, crispy crackers.  The cheese blend is awesome because it's so well balanced. All four cheeses combine into a single, smooth flavor and yet one can distinguish each of the individual flavors as well - the tang of the cheddar, the sharp parmesan, the milky mild mozzarella, and slight rich edge of the blue.

Captain's Wafers may not replace the sleeve of bright orange crackers and CHEEZ in your kid's lunchbox.  But you should give it a try in your lunchbox. All the fun of little cheese sandwiches like you remember from second grade, but with a flavor and texture that the grown-up you can really appreciate.

There are several varieties of these Captain's Wafers floating around at my local Walmart, too... I looove the cream cheese & chive variety! However, there is also a noxious "peanut butter & honey" kind that made me think of ant poison the second I crunched into it. Also, "smoke house cheddar", which is waaaay too much smoke and not nearly enough "cheddar".
