“ Brand: Jacob's / Type: Biscuits „
Over he Christmas period I bought a variety of different crackers and biscuits. My hubby loves cheese and likes to present a cheese board if we are doing a few nibbles when friends come around to join us with the Christmas festivities. When doing my christmas shop I came across these delightful savoury crackers and decided to give them a whirl. They are nicely packaged in an elegant and appealing box. The crackers themselves are packaged within a sealed clear plastic bag within the box. This bag is excellent as you can turn the top over and it keeps any crackers left fresh and crispy. The box contains very clear and detailed information on ingredients used, nutritional information and allergy advice. The packaging is able to be recycled which is always something which i take into consideration. The Jacobs cracker brand is certainly the leading brand when it comes to crackers. Infact the Jacobs cracker will be 125 years old this year. So they have had plenty of experience in developing and perfecting their products. These Jacobs savours are Jacobs latest offering. Providing the consumer with an alternative to the plain cream cracker. I believe that in terms of flavour and texture this latest jacobs product is spot on. The flavour is intense. The sesame flavour is initially the more predominent with the roasted onion kicking in as an undercurrent of flavour. However the subtle undertone of the roasted onion flavouring becomes much stronger during the eating experience. But does not become overpowering or bitter. The texture of the cracker is thin and very light. Although it certainly can withhold a topping of cheese without breaking and it doesnt crumble to dust when eating. There are approx 35 thins within the packet and the price i paid for this packet was around 78p. I think this is exceptional value as they are a high quality cracker with excellent flavours. I would certainly recommend these as a great alternative, to any cheese and biscuit board. There are other flavours within this savours range. One of which i have seen on the shelf called Rosemary and seasalt. One last point, and that is not to eat too many of these sesame and roasted onion savours in one sitting. As a slight negative for me is they leave quite a bitter aftertaste. Which becomes stronger with every cracker eaten. However a couple of glasses of wine will wash that away no problem. nutritional info per cracker energy 22kcal protein 0.4g carbohydrates 2.7g (of which sugars) 0.3g fat 1.1g of which saturates 0.7g fibre 0.2g sodium trace.
