I’m all about food. And I love to entertain. But I wasn’t sure about 34 Degrees’ Whole Grain Crispbread. When it comes to dips, I’m usually a wheat cracker girl, not a crispbread girl. But this crispbread seemed to be shaped more like a cracker. (There was no judging a book by its cover on this one—they were tightly packed in the box-like tray.) So one night my hubs and I opened the container with cheese and hummus in hand. You know to be prepared for the worst, but still keeping an open mind. Right. That’s it…an open mind.
To my delight, the crispbread crackers (which really are a mix of the two!) were quite delicious by themselves and didn’t need cheese or hummus. But the pairings were complements to the cracker and did them justice. The hubs even ate more hummus than normal with the crackers, though he wasn’t too thrilled when they broke often while dipping them in the hummus. They are very light and airy, making them delightful yet easily breakable. A night or two later, we were still munching on the crackers—soon to be gone but not quite. Gotta save some for those midnight cravings, right?
The crackers are definitely an easy eat, as the light and airiness of them makes it easy to eat half the package when you first open them. (Oh, we did that). But don’t feel bad about eating a lot! There are only 35 calories, no fat, 7 grams of carbs and 1 gram of fiber per nine-cracker serving. Overall, a pretty healthy cracker!
I would say that if you plan to eat 34 Degrees Whole Grain Crispbread with cheese, make it a soft cheese you can top or easily spread, otherwise you’ll have a mess of broken, sad crispbread crackers. As a gal who enjoys entertaining, I would serve these again as an appetizer with some goat cheese or fruit spread. Yum!
