New Milton’s crackers (front to back): Blueberry Multi-Grain, Honey & Corn, and Chocolate Multi-Grain.
Chocolate in a cracker? Blueberries in a cracker? Say, what?
Milton’s Craft Bakers has created just that and more with its new line of baked snack crackers that are made from organic wheat, corn, oats and honey. They’re also kosher.
Recently, I had a chance to try samples of the five new flavors: Original Multi-Grain. Honey & Corn, Chocolate Multi-Grain, Blueberry Multi-Grain, and Honey Multi-Grain.
The sturdy crackers have good crunch and can stand up to being dunked into the thickest dips.
The chocolate crackers are not cookie-tasting in the least. They have little sweetness and a faint dusty, cocoa taste. They’d be quite nice with a glass of red wine and cheese.
The blueberry crackers have specks of wild, organic blueberries in them. The berry note is subtle but present.
My favorite of the bunch was the Honey & Corn variety. It does taste a bit like buttered corn with a restrained drizzle of honey.
The crackers have about 110 to 130 calories per serving (6 crackers), depending on the variety. A 6.5-ounce box is $3.99. The crackers are available at Whole Foods, Alberton’s and Sam’s Club.
Five new varieties (three shown here).
CONTEST: One Food Gal reader will get to try samples of all five flavors of the Milton’s crackers. Entries, limited to those in the continental United States, will be accepted through midnight PST Oct. 5. Winner will be announced Oct. 7.
