I have little time for 'savoury' snacks - probably because I'm usually too busy eating their non-savoury and frequently chocolately brethren. There are however a selection of savoury morsels that can be found in my biscuit tin / cupboard at any given time - one is 'Jacob's Cream Crackers' (or a supermarket branded equivalent), and the other is 'TUC Original Snack Crackers' - another product of the Jacob's range. Jacob's have been making biscuits since 1881 when William Beale Jacob and his brother Robert opened their bakery in Waterford Ireland. Fast forward three decades, and things turned a little sour for the company... without dwelling too greatly on the facts, ... Read the complete review

These are always the packet that I find lying around my mum's house along with a Ryvita packet. She is the type to try and snack on healthier things than cakes and biscuits. However she never really seems to take into account that piling the Tuc crackers and Ryvitas with cheese probably makes them slightly worse than cakes and biscuits in my opinion. ------------------- Jacob's Tuc Cracker's Taste -------------------- I have never had a love for crackers but if I see them left somewhere around my mum's house I will usually be tempted to have one out of the packet. The only thing that I smoother the crackers in is butter which might seem quite ... Read the complete review

Jacobs Tuc Original Snack Crackers Tuc crackers are made by Jacob Fruitfield Food Group (Jacob's) and were named, apparently, after the Trade Union Congress. According to the company that makes them, they were launching the biscuits in the UK and didn't have a name for them. They saw a billboard advertising the Trade Union Congress where it was shortened to TUC and at the last minute decided to name their new snack after this. In early American advertising they were referred to as 'The Uncommon Cracker'. They are available in eight different varieties including a mini version as well as a couple of hot and spicy versions and a paprika variety, but this ... Read the complete review

This morning I decided I had absolutely no inclination to make three packed lunches so sent Charlotte and Alice to school with a couple of snack packs of TUC biscuits and a bit of cheese - and a couple of quid for chips if they could dodge the teacher to get there that day! I knew Mark was taking me for a carvery for lunch so when I got peckish at 11am I felt myself reaching for the last pack, thinking that such an insubstantial and irrelevant snack wouldn't possibly fill me up too much to spoil my meal. TUC biscuits are, well, they're nothing special really. They're in the same vein as Cream Crackers but with a more crumbly Mini Cheddar-like texture. Unlike ... Read the complete review

FOR STARTERS I always remember my Mother buying Jacobs cream crackers and also their Tuc biscuits when I was a small child and they have remained favourites of mine. Jacobs started making their savoury biscuits when they opened their first bakery in 1881 in Ireland and, despite one or two upheavals within the company, have gone from strength to strength, their biscuits are as popular as ever. Of the Jacob's range Tuc are my favourites, there are variations on these such as the Tuc sandwich, black pepper Tuc and a few others, but plain Tuc are the best in my opinion and a staple in our food cupboards.
