Review: Oscar Mayer - Oven Roasted Turkey Cracker Combo

In what appears to be a grown-up version of their Lunchables, Oscar Mayer's Cracker Combos feature a meal/snack of crackers, cheese, and deli meat. The Oven Roasted Turkey Cracker Combo contains over roasted turkey deli meat (cured with added smoke flavor), Philadelphia Reduced Fat Cream Cheese with Chives and Onions, LU Pain Rustique Flatbread Crackers and a mini Toblerone chocolate.

Retail price is around $2.99 but sale price can be as low as a buck.

While it's a fancified version of Lunchables, at the end of the day, it's still just crackers, cheese and deli turkey and tastes much like you'd expect.

It's a matter of preference but while I'll eat drier deli meats like salami with crackers, I don't really like moister deli meats with them. The cream cheese has a bit of added flavor with the chives and onions and the crackers have a bit of multi-grain texture but I'd rather have a Handi-Snack and call it a day.

Pro Tip: There's spoon to spread the cheese under all the crackers.
If we're going for fancy, I'd just as soon have some table water crackers and a hard cheese like sharp cheddar or aged swiss.

I'm not saying Oscar Mayer's Oven Roasted Turkey Cracker Combo was bad or anything, I'm just saying it just doesn't do it for me and that there are better alternatives.
