Jacob's Cream Crackers
Advantages: Taste good with toppings
Disadvantages: Very dry and tasteless by themselves
You can currently purchase 300g of Jacob's Cream Crackers from Tesco for ninety pence which are presented in their famous and bold orange packaging. You can find less expensive and own label versions of the cream cracker but the offering from Jacob's is seen as the quality market leader. Cream crackers are made of wheat and are extremely dry; in fact you would not really attempt to eat these by themselves as they are so dry that they become almost too difficult to eat. They are also on their own fairly tasteless.
However they are very versatile as they really come in to their own when you add toppings to them. The classic addition to a cream cracker is usually some kind of spread and then cheese but the possibilities are endless involving salads, relishes and pickles. The world really is your oyster as you can add as little or as much as you wish. Each cracker is on average 35 calories and just over a gram of fat so they are nutritionally very reasonable, so good for those eating healthily or on a diet. You have to be careful what you add in the way of toppings for flavour though as obviously this can increase the calorie intake and fat content dramatically, so something to remember.
These crackers are free from artificial colours and preservatives which is good to know. A good game to play with these is to try and eat a predetermined about of crackers in a minute and then try and whistle without drinking any water, as well as being quite fun to some extent it also demonstrates exactly how dry these are and proves that you need to add a little something to make them enjoyable and tasty. When I was younger my friend and I watched the first Wallace and Gromit short, A Grand Day Out and we ate quite a lot of cheese and crackers after that, they are cracking!
