“ Brand: Jacob's / Type: Snacks „
Most people will have heard of Jacob's Crackers, the company was founded in 1851 and the first cream cracker was produced in 1885. They are the number one brand in crackers. Now a days they make a range of crackers. United Biscuits bought the brand in 2004 so it now includes clubs, ice gems tuc and hovis crackers (which I didn't know) as well as some other well known biscuits.
Jacob's snack packs were new in 2009 but I have only just recently come across them.
The trouble we have in our house is we buy crackers when we feel like them, eat some and then don't feel like them again for at least a week or maybe longer. Sometimes they can still be eaten a week later (we always wrap them up) but are not so fresh, and any longer and they start to get a little bit soft. So we end up throwing a lot away.
I came across Jacob's snack packs whilst looking for the normal crackers. They come in a cardboard box which looks exactly like the picture showing, inside the box you will find 8 packs of 3 crackers wrapped in plastic packaging.
These were and are ideal for our house as we can eat what we want and at the most only 2 crackers are ever going to be thrown away each time we eat but the full box lasts us 2 or 3 eatings.
They are also ideal for packed lunches for school as 1 packet and either some cut cheese or spread can go with them. If I have them in, I no longer need to say no I am not opening the packet just for school today. They are also ideal for picnics especially now the weather is improving.
They are quite expensive - about £1.15 but to me they are worth it so I don't waste as many, it makes me feel better.
Each cracker contains 35 calories, which I assume is what the cracker in a normal pack contains. Apparently they are a good source of fibre.
