Yummy Foodzie find

21 Mar

There are a lot of crackers that think they have the cojones to stand up to your Cabs and Crianzas, but a lot of them fail short (I never understand why bakers think “merlot crackers” are enhanced by actually using merlot in the recipe, but that’s beside the point).

O Pair may have converted me with their blue cheese and fig crackers. My friend Magda got me a three-month tasting box subscription to Foodzie.com for Christmas. In box #3 were these little shortbread beauties, and for a sample size, it took me two or three attempts to finish them off. Their Foodzie site says they can last four weeks, but these were so buttery, I was afraid they’d go bad in a few days. Silly me.

I have never been a fan of figs, but I really dug these. I tried them with a cab blend, a shiraz, and even a Portugieser and these crackers were perfect with all of them. They also have other flavors like garlic/rosemary, lemon mint, salt and pepper, and rosemary/walnut, but frankly, I’m a little afraid to mess with perfection and order the others.

Butter, salt, cheese. Really, what more do you need?

Foodzie.com, $19.50 for three 4-oz bags.

      Me too. I’m still dreaming of them… Did you find them on your own, or were you a tasting box subscriber too?
