I don’t know about Americans, but I know British people love crackers, and how can you blame them? They’re tasty after all. So why not try the cricket crackers?
It’s Saturday afternoon, you’re hungry for a little snack, you look into your cupboard and see this intriguing green box of crackers. As a kid, I used to love crackers with cream cheese, since I don’t have any at the moment, I just went for butter. I didn’t know what else I could put on them, tell me in the comments, what do you like on your crackers?
The ingredients are in several languages, and these ones I can decrypt, not like the Korean cereal!
Here is the list of what you’ll be eating:
Wheat flour, cricket (Acheta domesticus) powder (15%), sesame seeds (6%), extra virgin olive oil, salt, sugar.
Once again, insect food has nothing to hide, quite straightforward and simple ingredients.
These cricket crackers don’t taste like usual crackers, but one bite took me straight back to childhood.
We used to have au pairs, for those of you who don’t know what an au pair is, it’s kind of like a foreign baby-sitter that lives with you to learn your language. One year, we had an au pair from Finland, I’m not going to try and write her name because I’m sure I’m going to grammatically destroy it.
Anyways, we would usually eat white sliced bread, but she would only eat Danish rye bread, that’s the first time I tried it, and since I haven’t had any, not because it was bad, it was actually really good, just it was hard to come by, and I was satisfied with my usual bread so no need to go out of my way to find something else.
These cricket crackers taste like danish rye bread, maybe I’m mistaken because it’s been probably ten years since I’ve eaten that, but my brain made an immediate connection. If you like danish rye bread, you will most surely love these cricket crackers.
Where can you find these cricket crackers? You’ll have to ask the company Crické!
You remember yesterday when I said it was awkward to have a little quote missing? Today, I actually forgot to do all my homework, I don’t have any information about Crické.
So, let’s put all the missing pieces together.
Crické is a company based in London, which would explain why they made crackers, but it seems one of the co-founders (at least) is italian.
They care a lot about the environment, that’s really all they talk about, and that is good! They’re also trying to get rid of all the plastic in their packaging, that’s another big step for a cleaner planet.
I guess if you want to know more about them, you’re going to have to talk to them yourselves, so follow them on their social media accounts and try these danish rye bread flavoured crackers!
I just wanted to add, they were one of the first companies to support me in this 60 day challenge, and I want to thank them for being an early bird and helping me before anyone else !
Now let’s move on to rating time. On a scale from 1 to 10:
- The Cricket crackers would score an 8/10. They don’t break like usual crackers when you put butter on them, they bring back great memories, they fight for a clean environment, they got da’ bugs. What else to say? Oh yeah, they taste great! I only tried them with butter, but if you have any other recommendations, please let me know in the comments, I have an extra box and I’d like to get the best out of them.
