Giving it a crack

Or should that be crack-er?

But first - is there anybody out there?!
I've been really busy slack lately and haven't gotten around to posting
so hopefully there's at least one or two of you reading still! 

But alas, I am back!
and I want to know all about what you've been doing 
and what you want to see on my little blog :)

But first, I just have to share something(s) with you!

I've mentioned before that I'm all about the crunch factor when it comes to food.
Toast > Bread
Crackers > Toast

I love crackers - but they have to be proper crunchy crackers, the crunchier the better!
Whether they be covered in some form of nut butter, topped with cheese or eaten on their own
you can almost guarantee I'll be happy :P

So can you imagine how I felt when I received a giant box of Tucker's Natural Crackers?!
The Tucker's family have been making crackers for over 30 years. 

All of their crackers are made with the freshest, premium quality, natural, raw ingredients and are yeast and preservative free.
As some one with an uber sensitive stomach, this is 110% important.

Their savoury cracker range comes in six flavours which each compliment different toppings perfectly (and they are just as good on their own!) 

The Four Cheese and Chive crackers are made from cheddar, parmesan, pecorino and romano cheeses and are incredibly moreish. 
They're so full of flavour that they're great on their own or with different toppings.

The Rosemary and Rock Salt crackers, just like the Four Cheese and Chive crackers are perfect on their own and are a perfect addition to a cheese platter!

The Coriander and Cracker Pepper crackers are a favourite of Coriander lovers.
The coriander gives the crackers a fresh natural flavour that means they match perfectly with a variety of dips or toppings - especially fresh dips like guacamole!

The Caramelised Onion crackers are the perfect balance of sweet and savoury flavours.
They are delicious when topped with a sharp full flavoured cheese and are incredibly moreish on their own.

The next two in the savoury crackers range are the perfect base crackers. 
The oatmeal crackers lend themselves perfectly to both sweet and savoury toppings with the delicate flavour of rolled oats, while the poppy seed crackers are perfect when paired with cheese or dips.
These two were actually my favourites of the savoury range because they're so versatile!

Tuckers also have a range of snack style crackers, Multifibre snacks
that are perfect for adding to lunchboxes or as a nibbly at a barbeque, picnic or just chilling with friends.

They're packed with both soluble and insoluble fibres, making them a deliciously tasty way to get the much needed fibre in your diet while still being a healthier natural snack.

The multifibre range comes in three flavours. 
The Capsicum and Feta snacks have an almost Mediterranean feel and are happily devoured by both kids and adults. The Tomato and Basil snacks have a milder, more kid friendly taste which are perfect for little palates, these are perfect with cheese - but flavourful enough to eat on their own! The Caramelised Onion and Cheddar snacks are another kid favourite, while still being a favourite of the adults!
And fear not, while you might be thinking they fall under the "healthy snack" category of bland and boring, they most certainly DO NOT! 
So much so that you won't even have to worry about finding a place to store them, they'll vanish before your eyes! 

You can bet I saved the best for last.
The Tuckers Dessert Biscuit range are among my favourite crackers ever made (so much so that when I received the box of crackers, I already had three boxes of these in my pantry :P) the Vanilla and Honey crackers are my sweet snack of choice.

They're sweet but not too sweet and they are full of flavour. 
I love them topped with different nut butters, cream cheese, cottage cheese or just eaten on their own. 
They also make a perfect crunchy addition to dessert plates and would be the perfect pair to mousses or just to jazz up a dessert plate. 

I wasn't sure if I'd like the coffee biscuits as I'm not a coffee fan, at all.
But boyyyyyyyyyyy was I wrong, these crackers are delicious. 
If you are a coffee fan, do yourself a favour and go out and grab a box (or two... or seven)

The dessert range also comes in Chocolate crackers which, while I didn't get sent any, I can assure you they are DEEEEEELICIOUS (and there is one packet currently chilling in my pantry :P).
Don't be put off by the fact they are sweet crackers, when you're used to savoury ones - I promise you they're incredible :)

So what are you still doing here?! (actually wait, I have a question!) 
Once you're done reading this post - RUN! (not walk) to a Coles or Woolworths store near you and grab a packet!
But back to my questions... 
How are you?! What has been happening in your world?! 
Also, what would you like to see pop up here?
New recipes? Photos of something particular? - I'm all ears!

And one more thing!
What are some of your favourite crunchy snacks?!
