International Weekend: Jacob's Cream Crackers

Today's International Weekend product comes from the U.K. and has been around for a while (since 1885!)--Jacob's Cream Crackers.

They're a bit like a cross between a saltine and a table water cracker. While a bulk package of six 200g (7.05oz) packages costs $18.00 on Amazon (affiliate disclosure - I may earn a commission if you buy something through this link), I was able to pick one package for just 99 cents at a local supermarket. Apparently they're the "fastest selling" crackers in the U.K.

While not exactly creamy, the crackers are flaky and crispy. They make for a nice choice to eat with cheese or whatever topping or spread you like with crackers. They're light but slightly more substantial and crisper than the typical saltine.

They're unsalted but a little more flavorful than table crackers (and cheaper too at the price I managed to pick them up for).

All-in-all, I'm pretty glad I picked these up and have been enjoying them plain or topped with a slice of cheddar cheese.

  1. Haha, Thirsty Thursdays! I like it! 

  2. Sound interesting but I don't believe I've ever seen them here in the States. Haha, maybe if I ever go to the UK... 

  3. Cheese and good crackers is a great snack, nice. I hadn't heard of these. Once again, you outdo yourself haha. First frozen Friday, then international weekend. What's next, Thirsty Thursdays for the drink reviews? :) 

  4. Try and get some Jaffa Cakes if you can (individual cakes about the size of an oreo topped with orange jelly and dark chocolate), I think you would enjoy them :)
