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.
Cranberry Sage Triscuit zoomed in to show the range of cranberry specks, sage bits, and brown sugar melt zones.
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.
Limited edition whole grain crackers.
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.
