Yesterday, while at Walmart shopping for Cran Energy drinks, I found Triscuit Cranberry & Sage crackers, limited edition. Because I was in a mood for cranberry, I bought them and have them now.

Looking closely at a cracker, you can see bits of cranberry and sage.

Sage is a pretty intense flavor, so you have to like that, then when it collides with cranberry, that can be a little strange.

This very close photograph of a cranberry sage Triscuit cracker not ony shows the cranberry and sage distribution, it also shows the carmelized brown sugar and some of the salt crystals as well.

I would have liked them to not have the sugar; I guess that cranberry brings a bitterness so sugar is a way of dealing with that.

I’m glad I tried them while they are around; they are limited edition, so I think lots of people will take home a box to try. The more I try them, the more they grow on me. At first I missed the hearty taste of wheat. But once one gets used to the berry tartness, the wheat comes back. It takes a palette adjustment.

Ingredients:

  • whole grain soft white wheat
  • soybean oil
  • sugar
  • brown sugar
  • sea salt
  • spices (includes sage)
  • garlic powder
  • malic acid
  • onion powder
  • citric acid
  • natural flavor
  • cranberry juice concentrate
  • yeast extract
