I just happened to have great timing – we were killing time in the airport and I randomly decided to check my Twitter feed right after they posted it. I was very pleasantly surprised to find a package in my mailbox today, just 5 days after winning!
They even included a cute little collapsible NFCA insulated lunch tote in the package, perfect for packing my GF food to go.
Anyway, on to the crackers. They are pretty similar to the regular Crunchmasters in terms of ingredients, with the addition of sorghum flour and millet accounting for the “7 Ancient Grains” title - the others being quinoa, sesame, amaranth, flax and brown rice.
They have a slightly lighter texture than the original, and the salt taste is much more mild. The stats reflect the lightness – they have about the same amount of calories as the original, but only half the fat (also only half the fiber though, unfortunately)
7 Ancient Grains Regular
They were good by themselves, but I knew they would be better with toppings. I spotted a small tomato on the counter and decided to put together a few quick bruschetta bites.
I put a slice of tomato on each cracker, topped with a bit of cheese and microwaved for 15 seconds, then garnished with fresh basil. Delicious!
I personally would likely opt for the regular Crunchmaster crackers since I often have crackers as a bread substitute at lunch and a little fat and fiber really helps the staying power. But if you’re looking for a lighter alternative for snacking, consider picking up their new 7 Ancient Grains variety!
